Snap Fitness enables muscle farmers to exercise efficiently with top-of-the-line cardio and strength training equipment, providing exercisers with a refreshing change of pace from meat-market gyms and tough elementary schoolyards. Members can also take advantage of tanning beds to bronze biceps and the Cardio TV theater, which distracts stationary runners and cyclers with moving pictures. Though 24-hour access keys are not included in today's Groupon, members can purchase them for an extra $30 to arrive at Snap super late and pretend to workout in an Edward Hopper painting, or pound the treadmill at four in the morning and get pumped to host a morning shock-jock radio show.
Tiki Tubing furnishes relaxing and refreshing excursions down the waters of the Amite River, providing a respite from the Louisiana summer swelter. In kayaks or single or double inner tubes, patrons recline as the gentle current whisks them downstream like a frog perched atop a school of loyal tadpoles. Tiki Tubing also rents out flotation devices designed to keep coolers afloat, allowing adventurers to sip from cool beverages as they soak up the sun.
The well-balanced instructors of C.G.'s Gymnastics bring years of coaching and competition experience to the mat as they edify students ages 2–adult. One 55-minute class per week helps beginning balance-beamers discover their inner Mary Lou Retton, whereas seasoned handspringers can work toward a lifelong goal of flipping across America. Boys' and girls' beginner classes teach the basics of routines seen in the Olympics, including vault, floor exercise, and synchronized medal-twirling, and an average ratio of eight students per instructor enables personalized attention. After the first month, Groupon customers can enroll in the remainder of the semester without the added cost of a registration fee.
Copper Mill Golf Club fuses the traditional design of a links-style layout with the swaying native grasses and scenic wetlands of the Cypress Bayou for a 6,866-yard course lauded by Golf Digest as one of Louisiana's top 10 golf destinations. Each hole showcases a colorful moniker that forecasts its unique challenges, such as the high-risk, high-reward second shot at "Wise Man's Folly," the precariously elevated green at "Cliffs of Despair," or the caddy-eating Cyclops that stalks the 632-yard trail at "Odyssey." The cool shade of centuries-old oak trees blankets golfers as they encounter memorable shots throughout the round, including the concealed green at the par-3 sixth hole and the rustic mill ruins that hug the left side of the 17th hole.
After rounds, clubbers can head to the Palmetto Grill, which serves a menu of steaks and seafood. The semiprivate club also encompasses two lighted tennis courts, a resort-style pool, and a spray park, where youngsters and thirsty golf carts frolic through miniature geysers and soak one another with squirt-gun turrets.
