Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today’s Groupon to Midlothian Athletic Club. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get any 10 group exercise classes (a $50 value).
- For $20, you get any 20 group exercise classes (a $100 value).
Armed with two new group exercise studios and more than 70 weekly classes, Midlothian Athletic Club helps visitors to fight fat and fortify their fitness routines. Experienced instructors design classes for exercisers of all shapes and sizes, incorporating cardio routines to torch calories and boost endurance and strength-training drills to leave muscles ripped for display at the beach or on extremely casual Fridays. Body Sculpting classes target specific muscle groups with body bars, resistance bands, and bodyweight exercises, and Body Flow workouts build flexibility and balance by blending yoga, Pilates, and tai-chi poses into a relaxing dance-like routine. Zumba sessions torch calories with a fun mix of hip-hop dance moves and Latin-inspired choreography. Fans of watery workouts can hit the indoor pool for Aqualyte’s beginner-oriented aqua-aerobics workout. Or, students can take an advanced class such as Deep H20 Challenge, which tones the entire physique with a circuit of low-impact, high-intensity exercises performed in the deep end and easily replicated in most home washing machines.
Though not included in today’s Groupon, guests can glimpse the club’s 70,000 square feet of facilities, which teem with tennis courts, exercise machines, and an outdoor waterpark filled with slides and chaise lounges. After an invigorating workout, visitors can relax by taking a hot shower or sitting in the sauna to open pores and other people’s mail with a healthy dose of steam.
Midlothian Athletic Club
Since 1988, Midlothian Athletic Club has dedicated its 70,000 square feet to myriad forms of achieving healthy living. Whether members want to hone tennis and racquetball skills, break a sweat in group exercise classes such as spinning and BodyPump, or relax in a sauna, they can do it at the MAC. The staff troll a stock of cardio and strength-training equipment, including FreeMotion Elite weight machines, Life Fitness treadmills and ellipticals, and Precor machines, ready to dole out technique pointers. At the indoor pool, swimmers can get a workout on the lap lanes, slip down water slides, or pretend to be toddlers in the kiddie pool. The club also has six indoor lanes, where instructors lead water-aerobics classes that are gentler on joints than moon aerobics.
To help guests recover after a hard workout, the Midlothian Athletic Club hosts many means of relaxation. The massage therapists calibrate their fingers to several styles of kneading, including deep-tissue, Swedish, and myofascial release massage. At the MAC Cafe, chefs sear turkey burgers, bake lime-chili parmesan fries, and blend protein shakes to order for nutritious refueling.
