It can difficult to run from your past, especially when your past is checkered with a brief stint in a vengeful lion pride. Escape animal hierarchies with today's Groupon to Women on the Run on Pelissier Street and at Breathe Pilates and Fitness Studio on Wyandotte Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a two-week trial of their "Learn to Run" clinic (a $30 value).
- For $35, you get a two-week trial of their "Learn to Run" clinic and a two-week pass to Breathe Pilates and Fitness Studio (a $75 value).
Through intensive clinics and workshops, Women on The Run's fitness and weight-loss challenges provide femme fatales with the tools to get into lean shape, improve fitness confidence, and whittle miniature figurines of Eugene Levy. A two-week trial "Learn to Run" clinic allows runners to assess their readiness for the running clinic in twice-a-week sessions, through a program similar to the full breakfast-burning regimen. Participants alternate between walking, fleeing aggressive Pac-Man ghosts, and running small distances. The full clinic aims to work asphalt attackers up to long-distance endurances capable of covering five kilometres or 30 minutes of non-stop running.
Breathe Pilates and Fitness Studio's experienced instructors coach casual benders and athletes of all ages. While other pretzels bask in vats of honey mustard, studio twisters sweat out stiffness in hot, aerial, or rehabilitative yoga sessions. Contorting clients searching for alternative salt-passing methods can join pole-dancing sessions or frequent workshops such as belly dancing. Small group mat classes, semi-private, and private sessions coach exercises tailored to each patron's needs, including post-natal instruction.
