Although body-exchange programs mean no one ever has to stay in one meat suit for long, returning yours in bad condition means you forfeit your deposit. Keep your constitution in returnable condition with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get a 30-day membership to GoodLife Fitness (a $99 value, including HST), with 40 participating locations throughout the greater Toronto area (see sidebar for details). Billed as the largest fitness organization in Canada, GoodLife Fitness moulds muscles and tones tendons with its state-of-the-art training facilities and heart-pumping classes. Clients can lift and curl with cutting-edge equipment sharpened for easy slicing and dicing. The group exercise offerings include a variety of classes in categories such as strength, endurance & cardio, mind & body, and hot yoga, as well as LES MILLS fitness programs, choreographed workouts set to powerful music and developed in New Zealand. The hallowed halls of fitness also offer amenities such as personal training, health centres, swimming pools, squash courts, childcare, and tanning (amenities vary by location; some only available for additional cost).
In oases of wellness scattered across Canada, GoodLife Fitness strives to improve people's lives with exercise classes for all ages and skill levels. For cardio, there's RPM, a high-energy spinning class, or Jillian Michaels's metabolism-boosting BodyShred. For mental serenity as well as healthy flexibility, there's hot yoga and Pilates. And for strength training, there's BodyPump, a barbell class; BodyFlow, a mix of yoga, tai chi, and Pilates; and BodyVive, a low-impact workout using Vive balls and tubes. GoodLife also offers corporate and business partnerships to ensure wellness in the workplace.
