Like an igloo, a chiseled body boasts a solid foundation, contains a protective core, and glitters in the sunlight. Get sparkling with today's Groupon: for $29, you get four fitness classes at Studiomixx in Scottsdale (a $68 value).
Studiomixx's founder Shandi Rooney cultivated her body-sculpting routine after working with such famed fitness gurus as Bravo's Jackie Warner and The Biggest Loser's Jillian Michaels. With a background of bumping tunes, exercisers take to the studio's shiny wood floor, challenging bodies and questioning the ethical standards of feet during each one-hour session. A quintet of class styles infuses sculpting moves from all corners of the fitness continuum. Mixx stirs together Pilates, yoga, and calisthenics to target every muscle and leave arms toned, cores flattened, and forked tails sharpened. CardioMixx adds to the recipe, getting hearts pumping through a detoxifying gamut of intense moves that constantly changes to detour muscular plateaus. Xtreme Barre, Circuit Mixx, and Mixx 20/10 further extend the rigorous training, which ends with a washboard-whittling abs routine ideal for scullery maids searching for on-the-go laundry options. Studiomixx's seven-day schedule affords clients a handful of morning, afternoon, and evening classes to slip into their busy agendas.
StudioMixx Body Sculpting System
At Studiomixx, owner and trainer Shandi Rooney applies the principle of muscle confusion—adding variety to a workout’s exercises—to help her students avoid plateaus as they evolve through her intense, calorie-burning Mixx fitness classes. Her main class, Mixx, keeps muscles guessing and stimulated under the influence of Pilates, yoga, and calisthenic exercises. The studio's new TredMixx classes combine interval training on treadmills, including alternating speed and incline, with total-body sculpting that uses weights, bands, balls, and ballet barre. Rooney, who has trained with Bravo channel personal trainer Jackie Warner and The Biggest Loser’s Jillian Michaels, also offers a handful of spinoff classes such as Mixx Lite for less advanced students, CardioMixx, and Circuit Mixx, as well as grueling, detoxifying Xtreme Barre classes that can burn hundreds of calories per session, or one pile of freshly raked leaves.
