The first Homo sapiens clocked a 25-beat-per-minute resting heart rate, which reflected their active lifestyle, their tree climbing proficiency, and their struggle to evade their fire-breathing spawn. Get back to the vigorous days of yore with today's Groupon: for $69, you get one month of unlimited classes at Oranj Fitness on Lawrence Avenue (up to a $175 value).
Voted one of the best yoga and Pilates studios in 2010 by readers of Okanagan Life, Oranj Fitness hones health with a lighthearted, sweat-generating switch from the ennui of regular reps. A schedule of more than 120 co-ed classes per week grants trainees with fitness varietals including dance, yoga, boot camps, spinning, and hip-hop lumber-stripping. Harness core strength and beautify everyday movements with ballet practice, or get down and dignified in calorie-busting Zumba classes. Strength seekers can sign up for TRX boot camps to use their own body weights as resistance or cross train in the Tour de Oranj studio-cycling extravaganza. Childcare is available to butt-kickers at an additional cost, and classes are open to all fitness levels, challenging soul sacks with varying degrees of intensity.
Though Oranj Fitness sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Every day of the week, Oranj Fitness bustles with activity as groups boogie through dance routines, stretch through yoga poses, and cruise through spin classes. The studio invites exercisers of all fitness levels to try new workouts with a wide variety of drop-in classes, each presenting a fun, community-based vibe. To keep pace with industry trends, Oranj works with local athletes, who give constant feedback on classes and the most flattering brand of short shorts. The centre also offers numerous amenities, including a smoothie bar, towel service, and child care seven days a week.
