Staying fit is crucial in the animal kingdom as it plays a key role in rams’ head-butting battles, lions’ dominance skirmishes, and chimpanzees’ air-guitar contests. Increase your body's competitive edge with today's Groupon: for $35, you get enrollment in one aerial silks workshop (also known as a Silky Sundays class) at PoleKittens Fitness' Vine Street location (a $75 value). The classes available through this deal are for women only and take place Sundays at 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m.
PoleKittens Fitness offers fitness-focused females fun alternatives to conventional workout classes and methods. The 90-minute aerial silks workshop starts by warming up the muscles used for anti-gravity maneuvering, then embarks on a tutorial of basic climbs and aerial skills aboard a dangling expanse of fabric. Students hone their abilities close to the ground to avoid accidental collisions with bald eagles, and the class winds down with conditioning exercises used by professional aerialists to promote strength and flexibility. Each student receives a free souvenir photo ideal for showing off their silk-scaling skills to friends and prospective employers.
