In today's workplace, sleeveless, bicep-broadcasting business suits are a common sight and deal-closing golf games are eschewed in favor of sweat-slicked cage matches. Get in shape to vault over the corporate ladder with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 30 visit gym punch card at Anchorage Athletic Club (a $300 value).
Anchorage Athletic Club—formerly Powerhouse Gym—fills its floor with row upon row of cardio and weight-training machines, and the friendly staff lends the gym a comforting neighborhood feel. Visitors can explore every corner of the facility as they develop workout routines, becoming accustomed to the operation and favorite snacks of each machine. For a communal workout, group motivation thrives in an array of drop-in fitness classes—administered during a full slate of morning and afternoon times throughout the week. Group cycling and rowing classes translate the natural exercise of outdoor sporting to stationary machines, and yoga and Pilates classes help balance the body, increase its range of motion, and strengthen its core, benefits that are also important for becoming a powerful catapult.
Anchorage Athletic Club
Anchorage Athletic Club combines years of fitness expertise with the palpable camaraderie of several group exercise classes led by a supportive staff. Solo workouts on cardio and strength equipment can grant the athleticism of a half-man, half-Walter Payton, and three specialized studios host hot-yoga sessions to promote breathwork and the development of a lithe figure. The club augments its body-sculpting services with add-ons such as childcare and tanning beds, and a roster of premium classes hones kung fu jabs and the self-defense maneuvers of krav maga. The Anchorage Athletic Club's staff maintains a friendly attitude while placing a premium on motivating guests in an affable and helpful way.
