Thanks to advancements in modern video games, children of Generation Z are being born with pencil-thin legs and thumbs the size of bowling balls. Reverse this downward spiral in evolution with today's Groupon to Gym-azing!, formerly known as Kidz Yoga, in Astoria. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get three kids' fitness classes (a $45 value).
- For $29, you get three TRX classes (a $90 value).
The exercise classes at Gym-azing! encourage a healthy lifestyle by engaging children's imaginative brains and encouraging them to get fit the fun way by participating in yoga, capoeira, or Zumba classes. Tiny humans ages 3–6 can emulate their pet cats and cows for 45 minutes while working on breathing and relaxation techniques. Older kids ages 7–13 are challenged physically with an hour of a flowing sequence of postures that promote self-confidence, awareness, and control. Capoeira—a Brazilian martial art that combines acrobatics and self-defense—energizes tired tots after a long day of being stranded on the teeter-totter, and Zumba sessions provide an outlet for self-expression that's much less messy than painting or melting plastic dinosaurs with a magnifying glass.
Instead of using ropes to tie up imaginary cowboys and killer cacti, Gym-azing! trainers use ropes during TRX suspension training classes. By using nothing but gravity, one's own body weight, and suspension cables, suspending students can build muscle and improve balance and flexibility. Reservations for classes are required, so call ahead before rounding up sweatband-clad rugrats.
