Weightlifting adds a dose of heroism to everyday tasks, helping athletes leap up stairs in a single bound, hail buses faster than a speeding bullet, and endure the catcalls associated with wearing red and blue lycra. Defend truth, justice, and American wellness with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a one-month membership to Anastasia Athletic Club in St. Augustine (a $65 value).
Grabbing second place in the St. Augustine Record’s Best of 2010 poll, Anastasia Athletic Club jump-starts health and wellness routines with and award-winning array of modern workout routines. Equipped with one-month pass, exercisers pump up pulse rates on cardio equipment and pin-loaded resistance machines from Cybex and Ground Zero. Decamp to a separate free-weight room, where iron pumpers build biceps with curls, construct quads through squat sequences, or tape Kick Me signs to the back of unsuspecting dumbbells.
Friendly, certified staff members guide muscles to their final, hardened destination with personal-training sessions calibrated to manage weight, gain muscle, and increase endurance. Specific training sessions are also available to focus on individual sports, rehab, pre- and postnatal conditioning, or bridal beauty and fitness, which targets key muscles used during bouquet tosses or wrestling matches with a lippy maid of honor. Anastasia Athletic Club aids aquatic intentions with its year-round heated pool with aqua aerobics and lap-swimming sessions for undersea exercise. After a spirited round on the racquetball or basketball courts, come down from the endorphin-fueled buzz in the sauna and steam room, or douse burning muscles in the individual whirlpool located in each locker room.
