Exercise is a pleasurable activity for both would-be athletes and recovering pyromaniacs desperate enough to settle for burning calories. Fuel fitness regimens with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a 30-class punch card at Quality Life Fitness (a $200 value). Punch cards are valid for 45 days after activation, at which time purchasers also have unlimited access to the facility's gym.
Quality Life Fitness packs its Green Business Bureau-certified facility with heart-pumping classes and exercise equipment for clients of all fitness levels. Soak up energy and inspiration from enthusiastic instructors in boot-camp or Les Mills classes scheduled six days a week so you can get a full-body workout while learning fun dance choreography in Bodyjam or coaxing muscle tone out of its fuzzy robe and into the limelight in Bodypump. CX30 crams a music-backed, strength-training workout into 30 minutes, and Bodyflow transports soul sacks to a soothing workout space with elements drawn from yoga, tai chi, and Pilates. Sunlight streams through full-length windows and lands gracefully like a cat just out of charm school on hardwood floors and gleaming weight benches in the boutique fitness studio, clad wherever possible in recycled and sustainable materials.
Quality Life Fitness
Led by owner and Les Mills–certified instructor Brian Nash, Quality Life Fitness's team of personal trainers builds healthy, youthful physiques with tools including Pilates certifications, years of professional fitness experience, and backgrounds in the medical industry. The gym's Les Mills fitness classes employ scientific methods and intense workouts to build muscle and banish adipose cells with fun, functional activities built around dance, and martial arts.
Like an android replica of a childhood pet, the welcoming workout space is both ultramodern and approachable, with ample weightlifting, resistance, balance, and core-building equipment complemented by towel service and locker rooms. Gym members strengthen their cardiac muscles on the treadmills, build up their biceps in the weight-training center, or study under the wing of a qualified trainer.
