Without a variable workout, exercise quickly becomes nothing more than a sisyphean routine of lifting boulders, running up hills, and running away from sudden boulder avalanches. Roll out new maneuvers with today's Groupon: for $24, you get three group classes at HEAT - Highly Effective Athletic Training (a $54 value). Click here to see the class schedule.
Led by a staff of instructors that includes a NASM-certified personal trainer, a three-time Ironman competitor, and former professional athletes, HEAT's group classes push patrons to new fitness levels with sweat-spurring routines featured on ABC 11 News. Inspired by Navy SEAL workouts, Tread & Shred TRX treadmill interval training pits guests against their own body weight as they dangle from suspension cords or web shooters brought from home. Short stints on neighboring treadmills provide a cardio kick-start between exercises.
RealCycle classes perch participants aboard a RealRyder stationary bike, which banks from side to side to test little-used muscle groups and dislodge piggybacking wolverines. Visitors can also slide into high, low, and middle tiers of activity during HEAT's signature workout, which breaks up strength-building floor routines and resistance training with treadmill intervals. All classes take place betwixt exposed-brick walls in HEAT's loft-like space festooned with eclectic artwork and Christmas cards signed by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s biceps.
