A steady application of external motivation is what drives most people to eat their vegetables, join the circus, or tag along with their bridge-jumping buddies. Mold bodies into adventure-indulging machines with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a 12-class pass to Avatar Private Training Studio (a $240 value).
Each of Avatar’s sagacious trainers brings more than a decade’s worth of experience to the studio’s intimate group fitness classes, which have landed the studio spots on a number of Citysearch’s Best of lists. A 12-class punch card grants access to a slew of eclectic sessions for students of all skill sets, with workouts that emphasize long-term sustainability alongside short-term goals. Full-body TRX Fusion classes ardently employ body-weight resistance, cardio intervals, and oversize hamster mazes to shape up saggy cores. Festive Zumba classes infuse Latin beats into a high-intensity cardio bash, and Gyrokinesis invokes yoga-inspired maneuvers to imbue bodies with strength, harmony, and awareness, before swathing them in a warm pita roll.
Avatar’s 3,500-square-foot studio warmly ensconces its patrons with spacious environs, first-rate equipment, and full locker rooms. Check the schedule for class times and timeline-confusing tesseracts.
Avatar Private Training Studio
From their expansive space at MAGNA, the instructors of Avatar Private Training Studio add new twists to the tried-and-true tradition of group fitness classes. Barre classes channel the graceful, physique-chiseling moves of ballet while adding elements of yoga and Pilates to create an all-encompassing workout that keeps students interested and less likely to perform impromptu arabesques at neighborhood bars. TRX, meanwhile, combines suspension training with body-weight exercises and cardio intervals to sculpt a powerful core, a lean silhouette, and a healthy body.
