Exercise keeps the body in peak condition, which explains the marbleized ThighMaster lying next to Michelangelo’s David. Enjoy an anatomical renaissance with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a fitness package at Anytime Fitness’s Ballantyne location (a $632 total value). The package includes the following:
- A punch card valid for 20 group cross-training or boot-camp classes (a $150 value)
- Two TRX sessions (a $60 value)
- One body-fat evaluation (a $15 value)
- Metabolic-rate testing (a $70 value)
- Five oxygen-therapy sessions (a $100 value)
- Three 45-minute far-infrared jade massages with 15-minute foot massages (an $85 value)
- One ionic foot detoxification (a $38 value)
- Test of cholesterol and glucose levels (a $20 value)
- Five LED light-therapy sessions (a $65 value)
- Custom 30-day diet plan (a $29 value)
Floor-to-ceiling windows admit cascades of natural light over sweat-speckled guests sheltered by constant security at Anytime Fitness, which is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The two-month package begins with a slew of tests that examines metabolic rate, cholesterol and glucose levels, and body-fat ratios, allowing clients to set reasonable fitness goals. Health seekers realize dream physiques by ceremonially sacrificing dumbbells or spurring on cardio systems in cross-training classes or boot-camp sessions. Five oxygen-therapy treatments hyperoxygenate blood to fuel muscles, expand lungs, and help relieve soreness. TRX suspension classes build lean strength and burn through fat with low-impact exercises, and an accompanying 30-day diet plan aids in healthy decision making and battles with peer-pressuring Pez dispensers.
Between sweat fests and group classes, clients cleanse their body with detoxifying ionic footbaths and stress-relieving far-infrared jade massages. An infrared light warms subdermal muscles in the course of 45 minutes, improving malleability for optimal pain relief from jade rollers, which knead out tension. LED light–therapy sessions may help to abolish crow’s feet, laugh lines, and traitorous forehead wrinkles that constantly spell out your age.
Anytime Fitness's members hit the gym at their whim with 24-hour secured access to facilities stocked with cardio and strength-training equipment from notable brands such as Life Fitness, Precor, and Nautilus. After a complimentary orientation, exercisers work up a sweat and catch up on their favorite shows atop treadmills, ellipticals, and stationary bikes mounted with personal televisions. Trainers walk rows of free weights and machines, doling out motivational guidance, and instructors lead TRX classes that use body-weight and low-impact routines to build lean muscle and burn calories.
