Muscles fill out clothes in a way that captures the eye of a stranger, similar to filling an Italian roll with batteries or a piñata with fire. Keep onlookers looking on with today's Groupon: for $29, you get 10 classes at Balance Fitness Studio (an $80 Value).
Balance Fitness Studio helps people improve health and quality of life with 24-hour gym access, personal training, and fitness classes. A staff of eight instructors leads classes seven days a week, motivating and encouraging students without threatening to read passages of Patricia Clarkson's autobiography aloud. Merge body and mind with Centergy, a 60-minute melding of Pilates and yoga that improves balance and flexibility while diminishing stress. Group Groove lets students live out video-vixen fantasies with hip-hop and Latin dance moves, and Group Power, a rigorous one-hour weightlifting program of squats, lunges, presses, and curls, allows lifters to gain enough strength to easily lift cement statues of Alexander Graham Bell. For extra credit, sample Group Active (general cardio), Group Step (step aerobics), and Group Kick (martial arts and boxing movements) for a platter of rippling biceps, toned legs, and ripped earlobes.
