Establishing a regular exercise routine is a great way to show your body you care and is much less painful than swallowing a greeting card. Express yourself painlessly with today's Groupon: for $29, you get your choice of five adult drop-in classes at MaZi Dance Fitness Centre in Wicker Park (an $80 value).
Taught by an internationally experienced cadre of professional light trippers, MaZi's fitness-focused courses combine components of classical dance and aerobic instruction with hip-hop energy and wellness-minded wisdom. Aspiring Astaires can keep step-based sweat sessions convenient with five drop-in classes of their choice chosen from the online schedule, which includes popular options such as Zumba and Pilates.
Tranquilize touchy tendons during low-key Power Candlelight Flow, which treats overworked muscles to an incandescent chill-out. Or hike heart rates in Ballerina Fight Club, which combines elements of dance and boxing to dole out limbering lessons on toning, muscle building, and why students should never talk about Ballerina Fight Club. Ballerina Bum Bootcamp keeps glutes guessing with a rotated panel of ballet-inspired toning exercises, and Skinny Jeans utilizes ball-aided resistance training to increase flexibility, improve posture, and whittle the waistbands of out-of-shape pants and the owners who fill them. MaZi rejuvenates recalcitrant muscles amid the light-filled chambers of its Wicker Park studio.
MaZi Dance Fitness Centre
Experienced dance instructors with national and international credits showcase graceful moves beneath the soaring alabaster-hued ceilings of MaZi Dance Fitness Centre. High-intensity cardio classes with clever names including Ballerina Fight Club combine ballet movements with boxing jabs to strengthen muscles by avoiding the repetitive motions of free weights and rides on the handlebars of stationary bikes. Soft candlelight flickers across the studio, and patrons of all levels release tension before the shimmering cubist sweep of the Chicago skyline.
