Like a tree house, 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 $39, you get a two-month membership package at Anytime Fitness (up to a $160 total value).

- Two months of unlimited access (an $80 value)

- One complimentary fitness consultation
- A waiver of the initiation fee if you re-enroll at the end of the two-month membership
Anytime Fitness, a friendly family of 24-hour gyms, ushers members into tidy facilities equipped with cardio machines, strength-training equipment, and nonstop security. During a complimentary fitness assessment, the client teams with a knowledgeable staffer to set goals and get to know the exercise equipment. Each location brims with enough treadmills, elliptical machines, and dumbbells to train for a marathon held in a mud-filled swimming pool. Many machines contain ports for mp3 players, allowing exercisers to sweat to their favorite homemade playlists. Available at select locations, group exercise classes help participants burn calories, tone muscles, and connect with fellow fitness-seekers. Instead of drawing smiley faces on newly discovered muscles, gym-goers can paint them a sunny shade of bronze by relaxing in a tanning bed.
Though Anytime Fitness sometimes features a discounted price online, today’s Groupon still offers the best deal available.
