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 eight group workout or boot-camp classes at Richmond Balance (an $80 value).
Richmond Balance's fitness classes stimulate minds and bolster bodies by helping students burn calories. Enroll in any of Richmond Balance's varied group classes available on its monthly schedule. Although class offerings fluctuate, current options include the cardio-boosting Spin & Sculpt, a core-strengthening Yogalates course, and a Body Blast session, an intense body-strengthening class that dispenses chiseled frames like a factory that makes knockoffs of Michelangelo's David. Classes are kept to 3–10 participants to ensure students receive personal attention. Bring languid biceps out of their fitness rut in the RB boot-camp class, where individuals of all fitness level can mold their muscles through plyometrics, intense cardio, sports training, and other fat-erasing exercises.
At Richmond Balance, trainers forge bodies to match the beauty of life-changing events. Their new mommy boot-camp classes help ladies achieve post-pregnancy goals, such as a slimmer stomach or arms that can change stroller tires without a jack. Support remains the common element of these specialized programs—the staff gathers students with similar objectives and capitalizes on a sense of camaraderie. The same method guides the Balanced Buddies system, in which partners share the same personal trainer.
Even outside the communal atmosphere of classes, Richmond Balance prioritizes an intimate, custom approach to health. Its certified trainers will travel to homes for private sessions or supervise clients as they sweat aboard the gym's Precor, Tuff Stuff, and Schwinn equipment. During workouts, guests can occupy their eyes by watching the individual flat-screen televisions on select machines or by counting the exposed bricks on the walls around them.
