It's become increasingly difficult to stay in shape now that everyday life requires us to do so much less swashbuckling, barley grinding, and goat hoisting. Stay toned with today's Groupon: for $25, you get 20 drop-in yoga, Pilates, and fitness classes plus one private yoga session (a $290 value) at Forma Gym in downtown Walnut Creek.
Forma is still sparkling from the recent updates to its facility, which complements its class schedule with future-compliant equipment. Real Ryder bikes challenge core muscles to a bitter, spandex-laden duel with lateral movement during the spinning class. In TRX suspension classes, straps extend from the ceiling to lift your backside into the air, and a high-energy strength and core workout keeps it lifted all day long. Happy feet and yummy hips alike can shake off stress and stubborn ticks with a Latin-dance-inspired Zumba class. Forma can also banish flab from life-sized action figures with martial arts and Pilates classes. Stretch out beforehand with a one-on-one yoga session with an expert instructor, who will engage every muscle with flowing asanas or by proposing to them on the Jumbotron. Forma provides complimentary parking for up to two hours.
