Like the three branches of government, bodies, minds, and souls often find themselves in contentious disagreement over how much wine is too much wine in a voting booth. Reconcile triune tribunals with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a two-class pass for Air Fitness, hot yoga, spin, or any other fitness class at Flex + Fit (a $38 value).
At the Flex + Fit lifestyle club, patrons work toward leading more balanced, healthy lives with yoga, spin, and air classes. The group fitness curriculum includes sweat-inducing hot yoga, in which limbs bend and stretch in a studio stoked to the ideal temperature for flushing toxins via gentle sweat beads, which patrons can bottle for further inspiration.
In spin classes, a theater-size screen rolls footage of Hawaiian Hills and Death Valley to simulate an outdoor cycling experience as patrons pedal in place, and in air classes, students are suspended from the ceiling to execute mid-air yoga, ballet, or fitness moves, or–as recently featured on CNN–nap. Early-morning, lunchtime, and evening sessions pack a robust schedule, and patrons who redeem both of their classes by February 16 will receive two additional free classes and a pat on the back from their desk calendars.
Flex + Fit’s stark confines curate both a contemporary and calming atmosphere. The fitness studio’s natural-wood floors give way to a wall-mounted Buddha figurine at the head of classes, and his-and-hers locker rooms lavish hard-working muscles with a soothing downpour from overhead showers bred from two prize-winning Amazonian rain clouds. To ease the minds of anxious car owners, Flex + Fit also validates parking.
