The pen may be mightier than the sword, but that’s only because it spends three nights per week bench-pressing paperclips. Stay in tiptop shape with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get 10 group-fitness classes (a $150 value) at Absolute Fitness for Women on Dougall Avenue.
Absolute Fitness anticipates a multitude of exercise styles, lavishing active ladies with cardio and weight-training zone equipment, group fitness and spinning rooms, a large swimming pool, and dance and Pilates studios. The dynamic group-class schedule tones healthful bodies with an eclectic mix of cardio and aerobic workouts, while whittling waists with spinning classes and choreographed dance training ranging in difficulty and style.
For clients mindful of soul and body, Absolute Fitness elevates endorphins to nirvana levels with a series of yoga and Pilates sessions. Essential Pilates introduces novices to the basic principles of this long-and-lean practice, and Candlelite Yoga is designed for soothing stimulation and glow-in-the-dark leotards. An expansive fitness area bedecked in bright splashes of colour and a wall of enthusiastically accurate mirrors harbour the exultations of Zumba dancers celebrating the female form to a Latin soundtrack. After draining their sweat glands, iron women can retire to the club's locker room for a restorative sauna session or a cooling tile-floor nap.
For mothers on a muscle mission, Absolute Fitness has a child-watch centre in which offspring can stretch their limbs simultaneously. The facility also touts a full-service, on-premises spa where aestheticians can knead out stubborn knots with a hot-stone massage or polish fingers weary from tallying their neighbours' pushups. Free parking is available for those opting not to paraglide.
Absolute Fitness for Women
Absolute Fitness for Women’s east and west locations serve as temples of dedication, where focused staff members help women of all ages to achieve their fitness goals in specialized, dedicated facilities. Both exercise studios boast areas with a specific purpose, whether it’s the cardio and weight-training rooms or the aquatics center featuring a large pool. Students 2 or older plié and prance through ballet lessons and jazz and hip-hop classes in a dance studio, and mirrored suites with hardwood floors house Pilates equipment such as reformers to help with major core conditioning.
With such ample square footage, Absolute Fitness for Women manages to combine fitness furnishings with a number of other services. A child-care area is available and members can relax and unwind in spas concealed in the locker rooms; after an intense workout, visitors can step in for a mani/pedi or a therapeutic deep tissue massage. The west location also boasts a salt-water swimming pool and a hot-therapy pool which are used in a large range of hydrotherapy fitness classes that can help clients with conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis.
