Trained instructors get little hearts pumping with gymnastics, karate, and dance classes geared toward children. Classes for parents and their children as young as 4 months work on developing gross motor skills, socialization, and problem-solving abilities. The gym also hosts a Parents’ Survival Night, which allows parents to kick back with a meal or movie while staff tends to their kids with games and music-filled activities such as freeze dance or headbanging competitions.
The Matrix Gym sports an 8,000-square-foot facility, a staff of knowledgeable athletes, and monitored 24-hour access to assist exercisers of all ages and abilities, day or night. Equipped with the latest heart-strengthening, muscle-toning machines from popular brands such as LifeFitness, Hammerstrength, and Cybex, this extensive fitness center bears everything one needs to lose weight, strengthen the core, and avoid bench pressing the cat for 30 days. Runners and walkers will enjoy cardio machines equipped with individual cable TV tops, USB ports, and iPod jacks for access to entertainment, downloadable workout summaries, and adrenaline pumping playlists of Celtic sea shanties, while group fitness classes provide motivation in the form of fun, energetic camaraderie. Although not included in this Groupon, The Matrix Gym also offers PlayCare for children under the age of 13 (a $20 fee) to relieve parents of offspring surveillance duties long enough to work up a healthy swelter.
