"Get in shape" hovers near the top of many New Year's resolution lists, right next to "deal with raccoon infestation" and "figure out how raccoons get trapped in the TV." Stop watching so many TV shows starring raccoons with this Groupon.
$35 for 10 Zumba Xtreme NRG, Yoga, or X-Ripped Classes (Up to $100 Value)
The 90-minute Zumba Xtreme NRG classes amp up the Latin dance-party format of regular Zumba by adding jumps, squats, and lunges. X-Ripped classes (also 90 minutes) keep up the pulse-pounding pace with rhythmic cardio moves interspersed with weight and resistance-band reps. For a more laidback workout, Vinyasa-flow-yoga instructors lead both new and experienced students through ever-changing poses. See the class schedule for times and dates.
Xtreme Energy Fitness
After struggling with yo-yoing weight and self-image issues, Nancy Schopp reached a point when she became, as she puts it, "sick and tired of being sick and tired." So she got moving, reaching her own fitness goals and then helping others do the same.
Today, she stays busy leading up to a dozen classes every week. Her fellow instructors enthusiastically share the high-energy class load, teaching the newest blends of cardio and strength-training in X-Ripped and Zumba Xtreme NRG sessions. Experienced yogi Anne Gonzalez makes Vinyasa yoga's flow of poses accessible to yoga devotees, newcomers, and those just now discovering that their arms bend more than one way. In addition to group classes, the instructors also lead personal-training sessions and small-group training, supplementing cardio and resistance workouts with dietary guidance.
