Jane Goodall once witnessed elders furiously howling at underage chimps for delaying troop progression through their refusal to dismount the "human bar" apparatuses. Cling onto similar swinging, playful fun with today's deal: for $30, you get five drop-in classes at Athletic Playground, a $75 value. This Emeryville emporium breaks the monotony of traditional gyms by energizing participants to move their bodies in every which way possible—imagined or unimagined.
By energetically leading outside-the-box workouts, the staff at Athletic Playground stretches the limits of unbridled fun with group exercises that emphasize human interaction. Discover unknown muscles throughout the entire body, including five in the smile alone, through these creative, fun-loving routines. They’re eager to share their passion for workouts that produce functional results for participants of all fitness levels. The diverse specialties and backgrounds of the class instructors embody the inventiveness and versatility of a Cirque du Soleil troupe sans clowns. Check out some of the classes in action here.
Classes are available in AcroYoga, Parkour, Capoeira, Break Dance, Aerial (Trapeze, Fabric & Rope), Monkey Conditioning, and Partner Flips to name just a few, and accommodate almost every schedule. They run all day, seven days a week, starting as early as 8:20 a.m. Each one inspires inter-connectedness and participation in a supportive group setting. The resulting workouts are interactive, motivating, and effective, unlike early mornings spent staring at the start menu of a Pilates DVD while licking yogurt lids.
Clients must be at least 16 years old. This Groupon is valid until December 31, 2010.
