Arthur Murray Dance Studio’s panel of experienced instructors trains students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Groupon holders can bring a partner to the private or group lessons for no additional fee, or fly solo and dance with an instructor or an extraordinarily graceful coat rack. In either case, dancers leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of their choosing, such as a stately waltz, a spicy rumba, or the vibrantly playful swing. Practice parties encourage students to step back from formal instruction and give newly learned techniques a test drive. Feel free to mingle with other students under the protective cover of dimmed lighting, which camouflages missed steps or the discouraged use of dance-enhancing flash cards.
SoldierFit uses training inspired by the U.S. Army to forge a fitness regimen that's fun and non-intimidating. SoldierFit's outdoor workouts cull from a number of exercise routines, including push-ups, jumping jacks, crunches, and basic weight training, to repave the cardiovascular highways and re-enforce the muscular reservoirs of your inner infrastructure. Burn body fat and bolster bendability with workouts that are ideal for both entry-level and expert exercisers. This deal includes a fitness assessment from SoldierFit's certified trainers, with a health screening and body-fat-percentage calculation included, as well as a suggested diet customized to the results of your physical assessment. Though you'll be dying to parade shirtlessly around your office to show off your rippling abs, you'll also get a SoldierFit T-shirt in case your boss characterizes such conduct as "shirtless."
Jason Schreiber dedicated years of his life to staying in peak physical condition by training in mixed martial arts, competing in amateur power-lifting competitions, and earning a degree in kinesiology. He relies on this combination of education and experience when teaching men and women of virtually any age and fitness level how to use kettlebells, spherical cast-iron weights with handles. Jason teaches proper technique as students safely perform the swinging and lifting motions that characterize kettlebell workouts, encouraging students to push themselves with heavier weights. He believes that these exercises not only build muscle mass and definition over time, but they also provide a more engaging cardiovascular workout than swimming laps through a pool of molasses.

Founder Bertha Cross brings industry expertise to Fitness Heights International from several angles: she is a seasoned marathon runner, a sports nutritionist, a business consultant, and an exercise instructor, among other titles. Her drive to inspire long-term lifestyle changes in clients led her to enlist trainers for multiple programs, all of which are accessible to students of every fitness level. Boot camps drill muscles with a variety of strength and agility routines, and running groups take jogs past DC landmarks, pausing to try to get the Lincoln Memorial in on games of duck duck goose. Innovative dance classes mix Zumba steps with reggae beats and lead feet through Bollywood choreography.
