During the day or night, on a holiday or a plain old Tuesday, Anytime Fitness is always open. Once they register, members get a key to the gym’s secured entryway, which means they have 24-hour-a-day, 365-days-a-year access to any of the club’s nearly 1,800 locations all over the globe. Personal trainers staff each location, where they lead customized one-on-one training sessions or provide quick and simple tips for using the gym’s high-quality cardio and strength-training equipment. The roster of group classes includes kickboxing and boot camp to whip bodies into shape in a fun and supportive environment. After a sweat session, members can head to the locker room for a shower or catch up on their stories on one of the treadmills equipped with a personal TV. Exercisers can also accentuate their hard-earned musculature with a tanning session or two, since access to beds is either added onto their membership for an additional fee or billed on a pay-per-use basis.
Taxxtime has four convenient Austin/Round Rock locations, each staffed with English- and Spanish-speaking professional refund hounds who can chase away the burden and stress of tax season and sniff out your maximum allowable refund. Unless you can find the square root of a tuber and divide it by half the value of zero–like Taxxtime's staff can–then you won't get the biggest refund possible and you'll only deduct from your Saturday nights. Taxxtime is also waiving the costs of e-filing your state taxes with this Groupon, and if you find that tax day came way too quickly, you can have your refund sent to your waiting hands in 24 to 48 hours for an additional fee. Any preparation that you need for Schedule C rental property forms, they will do as well.
Round Rock Art Cooperative's knowledgeable instructors, Laura Green and Joey Roberts, orchestrate creative and social shindigs during a schedule of classes and workshops that furnish all needed materials. During Ladies' Night paintathons, both women and men unwind at workstations in the studio, where smocks cradle drips of primary colors to sleep as paintbrushes line dance across a medium of choice, such as clay, paper, or canvas. If desired, guests can fuel imaginations with snacks and spirited beverages from home.
The Yoga Room devotes itself to bringing the mental and physical benefits of yoga to all serenity-seeking students, regardless of experience and body type. With a focus on Hatha-style poses, The Yoga Room keeps movements true to classical yoga teaching during each encouraging class. Pop into one of the Gentle sessions for easygoing poses and centered breathing, or try out a vigorous Ashtanga experience—75 minutes of demanding yogic action in a heated room—to invigorate the body. New bend-and-stretchers can athleticize limbs in the Hatha class, whereas more experienced centers can twist up a frenzy in a Hatha flow session, excellent for wringing out stress, stiffness, and full-body dish towels.
A USA Gymnastics Jr. Olympic Training Center, Platinum Gymnastics Academy isn't afraid to push its young students. It does, however, make sure they're safe and having fun at the same time with age-appropriate classes designed to boost coordination and improve both physical and mental fitness. Recreational gymnastics classes allow kids ages 6 and older to learn stunts and techniques by working with real gymnastics apparatuses, such as the uneven bars, vaults, and trampolines. Preschool programs build gross motor skills and spatial awareness in walking toddlers as young as 18 months. These sessions use the same fitness equipment as their big-kid counterparts, just scaled-down and covered with Sesame Street stickers. Though not every student is required to follow the path to competition, students can also be trained in professional tumbling or on one of the center's two gymnastics teams.
At Cielo Spa, clients can find relief for everything from stress to headaches and fibromyalgia. Rosalba and Raul Flores—the sister-and-brother team behind the spa—have created a service menu that includes deep-tissue, hot-stone, and trigger-point massage. Additionally, they offer paraffin hand and foot treatments, various facials, and a body scrub crafted from Dead Sea salts and essential oils.
