Your wedding day brings a lot of stress: guest list disputes, fitting into that dress you had custom made before the winter weight gain, dyeing the bridesmaid dresses identical colors. Ah! How about channeling that stress into exercising? Whether your dress is skin tight or a billowing ball gown, know that these three Boston fitness outlets are keeping your bridal woes in mind with dedicated packages to sculpt those guns and buns.
RECYCLE SPIN STUDIO
Both the South End and Back Bay locations of this cult-favorite spin studio offer customizable packages. Maybe the bride isn't a Vegas club type of gal—throw a different kind of sweat-sesh instead. Maybe it's a last push to work those muscles before the big day or treat your wedding party to a good ride. Whatever the inspiration, renting out the studio for an hour runs upward of $375 depending on time and location. Extra goodies like a champagne toast or a post-ride yoga are offered as a la carte services. Contact the studio to plan an event.
THE BAR METHOD
Work toward the long, lean muscles that are The Bar Method's signature result with a bridal package—$500 for three months of unlimited classes (typically $225 a month). Also included are a pair of branded socks and a tank, as well as five complimentary classes to offer friends, perfect for a wedding party gathering.
BOSTON SPORTS CLUB: GOVERNMENT CENTER
BSC has created an ode to marriage with its Tough Love class series, a way for soon-to-be newlywed couples can squeeze in some final workouts together. Get spiffy with your partner before those long-lasting wedding pics as master trainer Bron Volney starts with a high-intensity interval training, trust-building partner relays, blindfolded plyometrics (scandalous), and a segment titled "Bands & Bondage," where you'll be bound at the ankles with a resistance band. The four-part classes take place on Wednesday evenings at 5:30pm and are free for both members and non-members.
