Exercising alone can be dispiriting with no one to douse you in Gatorade or keep barbells from crushing your solar plexus. Buff up in good company with today's Groupon: for $30, you get one month of unlimited group classes at Active Bodies in Mesa (up to a $280 value).
Active Bodies helps work-outers remodel physiques with a suite of intimate group classes capped at eight exercisers apiece. Movers and shakers can wiggle to the slimming rhythms of Latin dance–based Zumba or 55+ Silver Zumba for older fitness seekers, which conflagrate calories using interval and resistance training set to upbeat tunes. Core muscles in need of tightening can benefit from the low-impact stretches and regulated breathing of Pilates, which help to strengthen abs, ease back pain, and improve posture. Cardio kickboxing delivers an intense, kinetic aerobic workout with martial arts–derived movements, and Hatha yoga improves flexibility and becalms minds frazzled from memorizing the name of every presidential pet.
Classes are offered in the mornings and evenings Monday–Thursday, as well as Saturday. Click here for a sample of class times, and call ahead for a full class schedule.
No two people share the same fitness needs and goals. The trainers at Active Bodies understand this and help visitors perform workouts designed to tone muscles, burn calories, or simply help people live healthier lifestyles. The team also offers personal-training sessions, which incorporate everything from cardiovascular conditioning and resistance training to exercises with dynamic body movements. Active Bodies also hosts group programs for clients seeking the support of a class environment. Zumba, Pilates, kickboxing, yoga, and boot camp sessions are all intended to complement everyday fitness routines while providing variety and a chance to purge coup-plotting sweat.
Healthy living doesn't always have to involve training though. The gym supports its clients' quests toward greater wellness by offering stretch therapy and rejuvenating massages. Nutritional guidance complements workout regimens by suggesting step-by-step dietary changes. Active Bodies even caters to visitors' needs by featuring a special play area where children safely play, lounge on bean bags, or practice their differential equations.
