Bally enshrines exercise classes, calorie-burning equipment, and a fitness-focused staff within its sanctuaries of health. A 30-day membership includes access to a spread of group exercise classes, including Pilates, Reaction Cycling, and Step Fitness (class offerings vary by location). For self-guided worker-outers, cardio equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, cross-trainers, and stair climbers torch calories while entertaining the brain with video entertainment and integrated music systems that occasionally whisper quotes from Charles Atlas. Bally also boasts an array of strength machines, free weights, and small-apparatus equipment, and grants gym-goers access to on-site locker rooms, showers, and, at some locations, a pool and steam room. Visit each location's webpage for a list of specific amenities and the lineup of classes.
Brooklyn Sports Club's mission isn't just about getting people fit—it's also about getting them to have a good time. The club emphasizes the communal aspect of working out with plenty of group activities and family-friendly programs for all ages. Children as young as six months can participate in swim classes in the competition-size lap pool, and there are several martial-arts programs for older kids.
Adult members can take advantage of any of BSC's facilities, including a boxing studio and a group fitness studio that hosts everything from Zumba to Hatha yoga. There's plenty of space for solo workouts on the fitness floor, including a 14,000-square-foot section with weights and a 5,000-square-foot area with computerized ellipticals and stair climbers. Here, certified personal trainers teach clients how to lift effectively and properly unwrap a protein bar. To help members further enjoy their time at the gym, there's a massage spa and a sun deck that occasionally hosts live music.
The optical staff at My Optician NYC enhances vision and decorates faces with prescription lenses fitted into chic designer frames. Branded frames from JLo ($229), Gucci ($350+), Prada ($350+), and other boutique bifocal houses instantly upgrade clients who fashioned their own sets from a box of paperclips. Single-vision plastic lenses ($69) refocus blurry printed words and improve farsightedness; polycarbonate and high-index lenses keep eyes from mistaking a boss's face for a Magic Eye poster. Although an eye exam is not included in the value of this Groupon, My Optician NYC's state-licensed optometrists and ophthalmologists can examine peepers and prescribe lenses for an additional fee.
Dr. Steven S. Turner and his business, like many others, were caught in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. After surveying the damage, Dr. Turner decided to build a brand-new, state-of-the art office. There, he and his staff dedicate every day to improving patient's teeth with preventative, corrective, and cosmetic dentistry. Given the fact that having a great smile requires more than a good set of chompers, Dr. Turner also uses his extensive training and knowledge of facial anatomy to skillfully administer Botox and other cosmetic fillers.
