A strenuous workout burns calories that are resistant to other methods of disposal, such as freezing and burying under mounds of chocolate cake. Dig yourself out of a fitness rut with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a fitness-class package at RPM Fitness Studio in Toluca Lake (up to a $140 total value). The package includes the following:
- 10 fitness classes (a $110 value)
- Spinning-shoe rental (a $3 value per class)<p>
Inside the revamped RPM Fitness Studio, sisters Cynthia and Karyn Graham guide small groups through a schedule of calorie-pruning classes that include spinning, Zumba, and Pilates. A stockpile of 10 classes encourages students to follow their daily workout whims, strapping on specialized shoes and saddling up to rotary steeds in spinning classes or panting in time with the pulsating dance beats of Zumba. Pilates workouts carve abdominal mountain ranges with lengthening and stretching exercises, and the studio’s signature Karyn Technique tones thighs with a series of vigorous movements. Instructors turn up the stereo to drown out the sounds of calories begging for mercy during squats and lunges, thereby creating a pairing of music and exercise as effective as kickboxing the Liberty Bell.
