The Athletic Club, located in a renovated warehouse at 653 Summer, has a variety of weight loss options beyond standard workout machines. Consult with their staff dietician about your unfortunate lard-only diet, and she can guide you towards the in-house restaurant for some healthy alternatives. Da Club (as it's known by clever patrons) offers classes like “Group Kick” (martial arts and boxing), yoga, pilates, cycling classes, and the non-ancient art of “Zumba”— a Latin/Merengue/Reggaeton dance-fitness fusion, or the new millennium’s answer to the 90s sensation of “Cardio Funk”. Lovers of both fitness and dismemberment can partake in a “Legs, Butts and Guts” toning class.
Overhead lights are illuminated as the sun dips lower on the horizon, casting a glow across duos engaged in baseline rallies that echo across Weston Racquet Club’s eight outdoor courts. Every day, the club’s staffers set up meetings like this between players of similar abilities—staff unconditionally guarantees a suitable partner for individuals any time they are looking for a match. Carefully selected pairs then take to indoor or outdoor courts, which feature cushiony surfaces ideal for players with tender knees or cowardly socks. Members can continue to hone their skills during one of the 30 complimentary tennis clinics offered per week.
Housed inside a restored country mansion originally built in 1858, the clubhouse winds back the clock with an art-deco-inspired interior reminiscent of a 1930s tennis club. After a day on the courts, guests can unwind in the 45,000-gallon heated pool or soothe their aching tennis ear in the hot tub. Weston Racquet Clubs’ 40-Love Café aids in refueling by serving a menu of sandwiches, salads, and tapas.
Reshape and reform for less than a buck per class with today's side deal. For $19, you get 20 passes to use for any combination of cardio tennis sessions, open pool passes, or group exercise classes at Weymouth Club, a $76 value (a one-time monthly membership fee is normally $115, and a one-time daily pass is $20). You'll have until the end of January to use your passes, giving you eight weeks or 20 workouts (whichever comes first) to exhaust your supplies. As an added bonus, purchasing this Groupon automatically enters you into a drawing to win Tom Brady's signed and lovingly worn shoe. The drawing will be on December 21, and the resulting prize is perfect for diehard Patriot fans, head-over-heels Tom Brady fans, and for the person who has Tom Brady's other shoe.
The Racket and Fitness Center boasts a wealth of body-buffing equipment within its bright fitness center alongside swatting facilities for various racketeers. Open on weekdays 6 a.m.–9 p.m. and on weekends 8 a.m.–4 p.m., the variety and volume of available gear ensures muscle-sculptors a balanced workout and a center free of lines and long waits. The circuits of Nautilus machines guide patrons in proper resistance, form, and movement, and free weights allow limbs to seize control of their own strength-training destiny. Machines also come equipped with Cardio Theater to give heart-rate-raisers the opportunity to effectively multi-task and increase their mileage in tune with televised small-claims-court drama.
Quick, quick, slow. Quick, quick, slow. It seems that every dance lesson starts the same way. Students are told, "These are the steps," "Move to the beat," and "Never breakdance on wet cement." But unwilling to settle for the minimum, Seacoast Ballroom helps dancers see beyond getting their feet to move in the right direction. Its founder, Frederick Dunn, strives to inject dancers with grace and musical expression to help them feel dance for what it is?an art form. Its classes range in difficulty from beginner to competition level, and cover a variety of ballroom styles. Solo dancers or couples can strut through a tango, shimmy their hips in salsa, or effuse elegance through the Viennese waltz.
Maine Pines Racquet & Fitness’s members take advantage of the gym’s wide range of amenities, including group fitness classes. On six heated indoor tennis courts, balls whiz back and forth in friendly volleys reminiscent of the childhood game Hot Potato, or as it was known during the potato famine, Hot Clump of Dirt. On the yoga studio’s bamboo floor, patrons strengthen muscles with Yoga Pilates Fusion or get deep stretches during Yin Yang sessions. Guests unwind from their workouts with a sauna session or relax in a bar and lounge equipped with a TV.
