Dance fitness routines teach aerobicizers how to effectively signal rescue planes and ward off evil spirits that cause late-night carb-snacking and ice-cream idolatry. Scare off encroaching donut demons with today's Groupon: for $20, you get 12 Zumba classes at FitnessFast 24 Hour Gym (a $60 value) in Bellevue.
FitnessFast's Zumba classes are set to a backbeat of lively international music, while instructors Becky and Kelly lead packs of rhythmic rugcutters through calorie-crushing, limb-shimmying sweat sessions. FitnessFast's packed class schedule allows Groupon holders to sign up for one weekly 60-minute class to enjoy up to three months of muscle-melding movement, or to cram in several classes per week to turn each session into a fancy fête with friends.
FitnessFast 24 Hour Gym
FitnessFast 24 Hour Gym's experienced staff focuses on the fitness triumvirate of strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance. Each of the facility's personal trainers doubles as a certified nutritionist, helping clients build workout regimens and nutrition plans that complement one another. A lineup of group classes indexes strategies for strengthening lean muscles and maintaining the nimbleness in the joints and ligaments necessary for competitive crab walking. During energizing BodySculpt classes, students swing free weights in time to music, bolstering major muscle groups with multiple repetitions. In contrast, yoga/Pilates sessions' relaxing stretches and isometric exercises help participants build core strength and flexibility. To melt away toxins, cellulite, and hot-fudge body armor, the gym also offers infrared body wraps, which heat the shell's surface up to a balmy 140 degrees.
