Committing to fitness means eating healthy, exercising regularly, and retraining pets to fetch newspapers and not turduckens. Make a smart choice with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a four-week boot camp and sports conditioning class at Austin Sports and Social Club (a $199 value).
Austin Sports and Social Club fuses team sports and boot camps with frequent get-togethers with team and classmates. The four-week boot-camp program boasts an ever-changing exercise arsenal to keep workouts stimulating and fitness bootleggers busy. Camps split into basic and advanced groups for customized student attention, and a small student-to-instructor ratio encourages supportive feedback between guru and grasshopper. Body-weight exercises, speed ladders, and medicine balls mix up the program for endorphin-pumping routines combined with sports-specific training to prepare for upcoming volleyball, kickball, and competitive cake-icing seasons. Participants choose from 6 a.m., 7 a.m., or 6:15 p.m. one-hour classes, and can change times if needed. Classes are held three times a week, on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
Downtown Dash TX
Organized by the Austin Sports and Social Club, the community-oriented Downtown Dash TX unleashes teams on a race across the city rife with physical challenges, social interactions, and mental puzzles. The undefined course lets participants choose their own route, but with a catch: travel must be completed on foot or by public transportation, not on bicycles, rollerblades, or stolen emus. While following a clue sheet, teams attempt to topple up to a dozen challenges all while encountering some of Austin's most historic and renowned sites. Upon crossing the finish line, the top three teams receive a special prize, but everyone wins during a postrace party that stretches the day's festivities into the evening. There will also be random drawings in which every team has a chance to win. The race benefits the Austin Sunshine Camps.
Beyond the race, Austin Sports and Social Club offers a range of coed team sports leagues, including soccer, softball, dodgeball, bowling, and sand volleyball. Participants are able to socialize on the court and at team happy hours following games.
