Humanity's quest for physical tone dates back to its earliest ancestors, who would repeatedly lift rocks for hours to render their bodies tough and unappetizing to carnivorous pterodactyls. Sculpt your body to prehistoric safety standards with today's Groupon to Urban Jungle in Woodside. Choose from the following two fitness programs:
- For $59, you get a three-week Burn Express boot-camp challenge (a $175 value).
- For $29, you get a two-week Thai boxing class (a $100 value).
Urban Jungle's classes and boot camps push fitness pupils to burn calories in a facility inspired by the streets of New York. During your three weeks of Burn Express boot camp, Urban Jungle's instructors will keep bodies guessing and muscles confused with an all-you-can-sweat buffet of more than 100 dynamic activities. The intense regimen blends body-weight exercises, cardio, yoga, and stretching to build strength in core muscle groups while committing flagrant arson on dense clusters of calories. With sessions scheduled three days a week in the morning or evening, Urban Jungle gives fickle flexors an opportunity to dip their toes in the fitness lagoon without scaly creatures harassing them for half-year contracts.
People looking to burn off aggression as well as fat can hardwire extremities for blunt force application with a two-week Muay Thai boxing class. This style of unarmed combat uses hands, shins, elbows, and knees to tattoo bruisescapes across human canvases, earning it the nickname of the Art of Eight Limbs. The twice-weekly classes teach students how to defend their rapidly toning bodies from legions of lonely henchmen desperate for a weekend date.
The pull-up bars stretch across the space like steely vines, they do the gym’s name justice and make for an effective—if sometimes grueling—workout. Brick walls and a spray-painted logo also contribute to the gym’s urban aesthetic, though students hardly have time to reflect on the decor as they advance through a series of pushups, dips, and pull-ups. The team of trainers designs each fitness program with functional muscle movements in mind, and each of their three-week boot-camp challenges draws on up to 1,000 of those dynamic motions to make every aspect of urban life easier, from sprinting after cabs to lifting them over traffic jams.
urban jungle have 12 different classes including CrossFit and Bootcamp to choose from.
