Science has proven it takes tired muscles longer to respond to brain signals, resulting in sluggish high fives and never-ending elevator rides. Make it through quickly closing doors with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get five drop-in group exercise classes, Pilates mat classes, or yoga classes and a 30-minute massage at Interchange Medical Wellness Center, located on South Wabash Avenue (a $115 value).
Interchange Medical Wellness Center sends clients through a gauntlet of rewarding fitness classes before soothing them back to stasis with massage therapy. Pilates Mat class targets spinal alignment and posture through exercises such as the roll up and single leg circles, and in Pilates with Props class, students develop core strength while ruminating upon poor Yorick's skull. Dance away stress and pounds with Zumba, build lean muscle with a pair of kettle bells, or get dizzy with the intense cardio workout offered by spinning class. Four yoga classes, including Vinyasa, refine clients' natural balance and flexibility, resulting in well-trained bodies that can roll over and go slack on command to play dead when unwanted visitors drop by.
Afterward, Interchange's muscle-menders knead bodies free of aches and anxiety to promote health and easy movement. Stress sluggers, certified in clinical, Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage styles, treat customers to a soothing medley of techniques that promote relaxation while providing a host of bodily benefits. As battered bone-boxes recline in the relaxing studio setting, 30 minutes of magical finger work unknots weary ligaments, helping to alleviate injuries, repair damage from overuse, and stimulate lymphatic drainage for enhanced immunity against being voted off the island.
