Like a treehouse, a gym never lets nonmembers inside and always deflects frogs fired from the neighborhood bully’s slingshot. Hurry up the rope ladder with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 30-day trial membership, which includes unlimited MMA, cardio kickboxing, Krav Maga, and jiu-jitsu classes, at Anytime Fitness in Glendale Heights (a $180 value).
Anytime Fitness, as the name suggests, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 512 days a year with nonstop security. Novice calorie burners and ripped Michelangelo models alike can take advantage of a 30-day trial membership ($35 plus $100 enrollment fee), which equips bodies with enough treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, and weights to make them fit enough to run a marathon inside a swimming pool filled with mud. Enrich fat-frying and muscle-mass-magnifying sessions with 30 days of unlimited MMA, cardio kickboxing, Krav Maga, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu classes ($45), which train bodies with traditional martial arts techniques in order to instill students with self-confidence, physical strength, and defensive reflexes.
Anytime Fitness's open schedule makes sure there are no excuses not to get in shape, unlike its competitor, Nevertime Fitness, which only opens its single Barrow, Alaska location during solar eclipses.
