Hot yoga practitioners, like artisanal pretzels, should be twisted, baked at high temperatures, and dipped in gourmet mustard for best results. Create a scrumptious yogic snack with today’s deal: for $35, you get 10 hot yoga or CrossFit sessions (up to a $130 value), or three personal training sessions (a $240 value) at Training Camp, located in San Juan Capistrano.
Training Camp’s light-soaked modern architecture and picturesque garden imbue its fully equipped fitness facilities with the peace, calm, and scratchy insect-filled grasses of the great outdoors. Whether splayed out or standing on their rented yoga mats ($2), torso twisters in the spacious yoga studio can sweat out impurities and lengthen their limbs in 60–90-minute hot yoga classes. Asana ardents can stretch more deeply in air temperatures that reach as high as 98–105 degrees Fahrenheit, and the heat may also help them lose weight, decrease appetite, and curb anxiety over cumulative visits. For an extra $10, Groupon customers can also get 10 kids’ yoga sessions for younger lungers and family dogs dressed in kindergartener costumes.
With today’s deal, Training Camp clients can mix and match their 10 stress-relief sessions with core-crunching CrossFit classes, whose physical challenges constantly vary to keep minds and muscles amused. Supported by a crew of fellow pec-punishers, exercisers might run laps on a garden track, lift free weights en plein air on the gym’s outdoor patio, or bench-press giant chocolate bunnies, depending on the Workout of the Day. (See the online schedule to reserve a place in a hot yoga class; call to reserve a place in a CrossFit class.) Or, lone workout wolves can get one-on-one guidance in three personal training sessions with one of the gyms’ pro fitness wizards.
Ten classes must be used within two months of first class. Training sessions must be used within one month of first session.
Monkey bars glint in the sun, surrounded by a grassy expanse and a line of giddy guests waiting their turn in line. But these jungle-gym enthusiasts aren’t children—they’re the muscular boot campers in Training Camp Yoga & Fitness’s expansive backyard. In the verdant field, certified trainers lead small, motivated groups through a Cross Training workout of the day, challenging them with sprints around the 1/8–mile track, ropes that hang from lofty trees, or lifting weights in the indoor weight room. They switch up the routines daily to keep muscles interested, and they scale exercises to suit the fitness levels of all guests.
Training Camp’s instructors also move inside the 4,000-square-foot facility to lead hot-yoga classes. They modify moves within an exposed-brick and soft-floor studio, helping students deepen their stretch as hot air loosens muscles. When not in classes, students can unwind with a turn in the private massage room. As an added convenience, the gym offers playcare for $5 per child Monday–Friday 8 a.m.–12 p.m. for infants, toddlers and children of all ages. The gym is open seven days a week and is available during regular hours.
