What You'll Get
It's an old saw that women tend to do things in groups, be it eating lunch, going to the bathroom, or interlocking to form larger, more powerful women. Today's Groupon turns that groupthink into groupdo by getting ladies three group training sessions at Vera Fitness in Green Lake. Vera's sessions are customized workouts that combine cardio, flexibility, and strength training with nutrition and health knowledge—creating a flexible, holistic workout that, for once, doesn't involve swimming through a vat of peanut-butter fudge.
Vera's hour-long sessions are small (four people) and use an innovative piece of strength-training equipment called the Kinesis, which enables 360-degree free range of motion. Your trainers can customize your workout with more than 700 possible Kinesis movements. All the while, you'll be burning calories in a clean and spacious spa-like space with white walls and plenty of natural light. Click here to see a 360-degree view of the studio.
Working out with the friendly and dedicated certified personal trainers at Vera means you get a workout tailored to your personal strengths, weaknesses, goals, health conditions, and thermostat preference. Vera trainers are health and fitness experts who happily dole out lifestyle and diet advice while getting you and your new friends superfit. They can also get you superbad, though this is a complicated regimen involving getting up offa that thing, getting on the good foot, and shouting "Hey!" a lot. As such, it is only recommended for advanced practitioners or exceptionally funky beginners.
Be sure to call for session times and availability.
In 2008, Seattle Metropolitan called Vera Fitness the Best Fitness Center in the Seattle area, saying:
- …Greenlake’s new women-only workout spot, everyone on staff has completed an “emotional intelligence training” course, the tricked-out Kinesis training room boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal a woodsy setting, and a Web database helps members track their progress. Yes, you still have to work out. – Metropolitan
- The space is warm and friendly and clean... Every client is greeted by name as they enter and it is a truly positive experience. Instead of a competitive atmosphere it feels like a community of women who are all working toward goals of fitness and wellness. – bsjo, Citysearch
- From the second you walk in the door you know its [sic] going to be a good experince [sic]...you are greeted by the most caring staff and you feel like you are in a spa setting not a big gym... The trainers are amazing and give 100% to each woman that walks in the door. – kak1234, Citysearch
