Physical strength is the result of fitness and exercise, just as intuition is a result of spending too much time in the sauna. Sweat for a good reason with today's Groupon: for $49, you get six reformer Pilates classes and six exercise classes at Franklin Athletic Club in Southfield (a $270 value).
The qualified staff of Franklin Athletic Club ferries fitness seekers through the fundamentals of strength, core, and stamina building. One-hour classes limited to six students run through the tenets of reformer Pilates, a core-strength-building exercise that implements special reformer equipment. A knowledgeable instructor will usher students through six sessions, conferring the benefits of firmer muscle tone, increased energy, and the ability to sniff out lies.
Round out fitness regimens with six additional fitness classes from a schedule full of muscle-building courses. Strength seekers can swing and groove to the upbeat tempos of Zumba classes, intensified by Latin rhythms. Or blend a fitness smoothie in the Total Body Mix Class, a group fitness class that infuses boxing, weights, and mini tramps with techniques and equipment that rotate like a carousel on the fingertip of a Harlem Globetrotter.
Franklin Athletic Club
The staff at Franklin Athletic Club knows that staying in shape requires a multifaceted exercise routine and dietary regimen. Their newly renovated facility reflects this understanding, with a multitude of exercise equipment, fitness classes, and an onsite restaurant.
Club members can join TRX suspension-training, martial-arts, dance, and yoga classes led by experienced instructors. They can also develop personal-training routines using more than 10,000 square feet of free weights and cardio equipment. A 20-yard indoor pool facilitates year-round aquatic exercise, and an outdoor pool allows karate students to chop gigantic blocks of ice in the winter.
After a racquetball game or a match on 1 of 13 indoor tennis courts, athletes head to the club's Babylon Cafe to replenish their energy with American and Mediterranean dishes such as chicken wraps and falafel plates.
