Being in shape is the best way to impress an intriguing stranger on the opposite end of the room at a bar or on the opposite side of the table at an arm-wrestling tournament. Gain leverage in the game of love with today's Groupon: for $30, you get four sexy fitness classes at L'Ru Studios (a $60 value).
L'Ru Studios' sexy fitness classes help women and men of all ages, shapes, and fitness levels strengthen and tone their bodies while building confidence and developing creativity. Students with today's deal can sign up for any four fitness classes listed on the studio's schedule. During classes, instructors draw on their experiences from the exotic dance and fitness industries to lead lessons in pole dancing, cardio hooping, and yoga moves with sultry twists. Newcomers can acquaint bodies with provocative contortions in the Beginner Pole Dance class, and Go-Go Cardio Pole classes blend sexy stunts, go-go dance moves, and a full triathlon to burn calories and free sensual spirits. Workouts omit nudity and focus instead on empowering women and strengthening cores by teaching flirty dances and sultry moves that make use of chairs and walls.
Unless noted as "coed," the one-hour classes bar Y-chromosomes in order to foster an atmosphere in which students will be comfortable. Students sprawl across the wooden floor of the studio, which is bounded on one side by a wall-to-wall mirror so that dancers can perfect their form without having to pose for time-consuming daguerreotype shoots.
The instructors at L'Ru Studios—all of whom have undergone professional training or held careers in the dance industry—aren't afraid to mix things up. They lead a range of classes where fusion is key. For instance, in pole dancing and salsa, they combine cardio and strength-training exercises with sensual movements to create fun and unique fitness experiences. They even blend disciplines into entirely new styles—their vertical barre course mixes pole tricks with ballet techniques. For even more unconventional workouts, they lead circus and aerial yoga sessions that combine acrobatics with flexibility-boosting poses. In addition to offering private parties and lessons, they host workshops and class series designed to build a repertoire of dance or circus skills for use in full routines.
Though their curriculum is broad, their philosophy remains focused. They strive to cultivate a judgment-free area for guests of all fitness levels, builds, and ages. This ideology of accessibility and acceptance surfaces in their small class sizes and supportive attitudes.
