Working out is No. 3 on the list of most popular daily activities in America, behind not working out and teaching dogs to swear. Spend your time wisely with today's Groupon: for $49, you get 10 group classes at Balance Fitness Studio (a $120 value).
Balance Fitness Studio's instructors pilot fat burners through body-trimming classes held in a studio heated to 80–85 degrees in order to make students sweat and increase their flexibility. Stretch into the Balance Restore yoga session to flow through a series of poses designed to release tension and ease the mind, or jump into the fusion belly-dance class, which uses Middle Eastern hip-swiveling techniques to create a full-body workout. The Balance Barre Method class employs the ballet barre, Pilates movements, exercise balls, and light weights to tone muscles, and the TRX class relies on the TRX suspension system used by U.S. Navy Seals and weight-conscious dolphins.
The lobby’s leather couches, exposed brick, and hanging lanterns greet fitness fans as they enter the facility. Pupils then head for the heated studio, built with deep-toned wood floors and mirror-lined walls so that guests can analyze their form and practice for staring contests against an equal opponent. With classes offered seven days a week, the studio's schedule is as flexible as its instructors.
