Running as exercise gained popularity after farming replaced chasing down prey and Big Bad Wolf-proof houses replaced being chased as prey. Jump on the sprint-propelled bandwagon with today's Groupon: for $49, you get 10 individual running and agility classes or one month of unlimited classes at Velocity Sports Performance (up to a $195 value). This Groupon is valid for locations in Coppell and Southlake. During the first class, trainees can choose whether to take 10 classes before the Groupon's expiration or continue with a one-month unlimited membership.
Velocity's coaches, many of whom are trained in kinesiology and exercise science, lead heart-pounding fitness programs for adults and children ages 8 and older. The one-hour movement sessions gather an ever-shifting array of exercises calculated to increase kids' speed and agility and challenge grownups' coordination more than their offices' annual air-hockey-based performance reviews. Small groups of 15 people work to reach their peak performance level under the coach's custom-tailored tutelage. After the program, strengthened bodies may measure their tangible successes in greater endurance, improved metabolism, and an abandoned belief that stale Twizzler jousts counts as exercise.
Velocity’s training facilities enable active movement with a climate-controlled turf field for indoor exercise, sprint tracks for speed development, and weightlifting equipment for weighing down sentient treadmills. View the Coppell and Southlake schedules online.
