After centuries of staying lean through an active outdoor lifestyle, primitive humans developed workout centers to reproduce the natural effects of hunting game in the wild and building their own three-car cave garages. Pay homage to your forebears’ efforts with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a 30-day unlimited membership to G-Force Fitness, including classes, one personal-training session, and childcare in East Paris (up to a $105 value).
Featured on Fox 17 News, G-Force Fitness ambushes flab with 26 slimming and toning fitness classes every week. Shirking the treadmill-shaped shackles of traditional gym membership, G-Force’s schedule sticks to group body grinds with four classes from the renowned Les Mills International workout series, including weight-wielding BodyPump, martial arts-based BodyCombat, and yoga-Pilates mashup BodyFlow.
Dance-minded members can spend an hour shaking away calories of quesadillas past in a high-cardio, Latin dance-inspired Zumba. During the included personal-training session, new members will work with G-Force’s friendly and surprisingly toned trainers to solve their problem areas with tailored workouts, motivation, and advice on brands of muscle gloss.
G-Force Fitness offers a free childcare service to its members during many classes, providing a secure and supervised location for little ones to play and participate in stationary tricycle races while parents work off embedded couch cushions. When not wardening weight loss, G-Force offers women’s self-defense courses and sponsors the D4K Mentoring Program for youth. This Groupon is good for new members only, and persons younger than 18 must be accompanied by a guardian.
The low-hanging swathes of fabric that dangle from the rafters at G-Force Fitness aren’t for decoration. Instead, they serve as a sort of spotter for participants in Flying Yoga classes, supporting arms, legs, and bodies to allow for deeper, more strengthening stretches. They’re just one example of the way G-Force strives to shake up traditional fitness routines, making good on their philosophy that working out can be both functional and fun. Energizing beats invigorate students in weightlifting, lengthening, and aerobic workouts such as BodyPump, BodyFlow, and BodyJam, while BodyCombat classes choreograph martial-arts and kickboxing moves to Oscar De La Hoya’s greatest hits. The gym also offers TRX workouts and personal-training sessions and recently added massage services to help soothe muscles post-workout.
