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: for $34, you get a 30-day membership with unlimited classes at Mountains’ Edge Fitness in Boulder (a $70 value).
The sweat-coaxing dumbbell den at Mountains' Edge Fitness motivates members to tone bodies on their own or in one-hour classes led by expert instructors. Echoes of grunts and gasps resonate throughout the 5,000-square-foot weight-and-cardio room, where members carve abdomens to match the rocky stomach muscles of the Flatiron Mountains visible from the gym’s windows. Group classes enliven bodies of all fitness levels. Bump and Grind dance workouts strengthen cores with a sexy combination of hip-hop and old-fashioned aerobics, and interdisciplinary yoga classes thrust calories into spiritual fires with mat work and focused breathing techniques. Trainers certified in Spinning cycle instruction kick aerobic exercise into higher gears as students mount rotary steeds and embark on stationary odysseys to lands of well-defined musculature. When weather permits and the sun isn't buried behind a blanket somewhere, cycling classes may be held on an expansive outdoor deck with equally stunning views.
Members can supplement their seven-day-a-week routine with a bevy of personal-training and massage services available on-site for an additional charge. A special $15 childcare service package for Groupon members will keep parents’ minds at ease while their hearts pump in calorie-burning fits of frenzy.
