There are fitness classes with names like Indoor Cycling, Advanced Step, Cardio Circuit, and Stretch & Tone -- names that give you a pretty good idea of what you're getting into. And then there are classes with other, more creative names; descriptive, perhaps, after you know what they're talking about, but totally cryptic until you read the class description. Here is a sampling of the latter from around the metro.
Breakfast Club. Sounds good! Bacon, anyone? As it turns out, this Greenwood Athletic Club class is a "high-energy cardio/weight training workout" at 6:00am -- even earlier than some of us really do have breakfast.
Movement Integrity. Isn't that what we're after in every class? At The Point Athletic Club, this total-body workout incorporates pilates, yoga, and traditional strength training while focusing on precise movement and proper alignment.
Zip. Makes you think of zip-lining in a tropical paradise, doesn't it? Though not quite that nice, this class, found at Colorado Athletic Club Downtown, is a 30-minute strength training class; it tones your whole body "in a zip", as their website says.
Sole Control. Visit Lakeshore Athletic Club to experience this barefoot workout combining dance, pilates, and yoga.
Power 20. At Better Bodies Lakewood, this means 20 minutes of self-defense moves, 20 minutes of strength training, and 20 minutes of abs and stretching.
Joega. More than just yoga taught by Joe, this class at the Flatiron Athletic Club in Boulder uses an exercise ball and body weight exercises to build strength and flexibility throughout the entire body.
