Early fitness instructors were strict disciplinarians, often forcing unruly students to write penitent phrases over and over with 35-pound pieces of chalk. Embrace modern approaches to fitness education with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get two one-hour fitness classes at The Bar Method in Newport Coast (a $48 value).
The Bar Method helps to sculpt physiques with a carefully constructed coalescence of isometrics, dance conditioning, physical therapy, and interval training. Instructors begin one-hour classes with a warm-up before progressing to free-weights, push-ups, and intense leg and seat workouts using ballet bars, mats, and students' own body weight. Stretching plays an integral role in the exercises students perform, helping to produce muscles that are long and powerful rather than flimsy and octagonal.
Nestled near the coastline, The Bar Method plants fitness seekers in front of an ocean view, providing more inspiring scenery than a typical gym's dystopian murals and abstract sculptures of spiders. With today's deal, students can take two classes themselves or give one of their two classes to a friend, a family member, or a favorite epic poet. Groupon customers wishing to continue their march toward fitness will still be eligible for the Newport Beach studio's $100 new-client special.
