Dancing is the second-best way to let the body do the talking, just short of being born with a secondary bellybutton mouth. Elegantly express yourself with today's Groupon: for $30, you get 10 dance and Zumba classes (a $169.50 value) at The Dance Studio at Absolute Fitness on Dougall Avenue.
Under the guidance of the experienced instructors at Absolute Fitness’ dance studio, toe tappers of all abilities bop through an assortment of rug cutting classes including ballet, Zumba, and jazz. Tiny twirlers ages 2–15 can channel their inner music box inhabitants during a beginner ballet class, and an adult ballet class focuses on technique and conditioning for arabesquers ages 16 and up. An all ages hip hop class infuses feet with attitude and arms bodies with an arsenal of battle-ready moves for tie breaker dance-offs during family game nights. Tone muscles and get hearts pounding with a Zumba class that coaxes shimmies from even the most static of hips with the help of ebullient Latin music and high-energy choreography. Check out Absolute Fitness’ schedule for class times.
Today’s Groupon also grants rhythmic movers 18 and older access to Absolute Fitness’ facilities before or after their class, including a cardio and weight-training room, an aquatics area with large swimming pool, and a locker room replete with a steam room and sauna. Eagle-eyed employees can mind wee ones in the child-watch centre for an additional fee to enable their progenitors to pirouette through their lessons sans giggling cargo or form-critiquing child prodigies.
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.
