Going to the gym is a safe way to work out, unlike doing pull-ups on a streetlight or fighting public-disturbance charges. Lift lawfully with today's Groupon: for $42, you get 10 all-access gym visits at Fitness on 25th (an $89 value).
An extension of YWCA Saskatoon, Fitness on 25th strives to combat poverty, homelessness, and violence against women and children through coed programs designed to enrich lives. With an all-access pass to the workout centre, fitness gurus can join any FitLand classes, such as the 60-minute barbell-based Group Power session, as well any available FitAqua class led by authentic water-polo horses. Laps in the warm 25-metre pool work the body without stressing joints, and general admittance to the gym earns access to games of basketball and volleyball. Patrons pass the time on treadmills by watching TV at the cardio theatre or amplify muscles in the weight room, where they can build brawn lifting dumbbells or bench-pressing fellow weightlifters.
YWCA Fitness on 25th
Not every workout at YWCA Fitness on 25th has to take place on solid ground. That's because classes in the gym's 25-meter pool are a special source of pride for the facility. In Aqua Fitness sessions, students run through a full aerobic workout that's intensified by the water's resistance. Yet that class, just like other offerings like Aqua Yoga or the experience of living inside a tight-lipped whale, don't require any swimming experience. But there are also plenty of chances to perfect strokes during daily lane swims or to get a workout on dry land. The main gym hosts classes like Zumba and yoga and is stocked with strength and cardio equipment.
