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 $30, you get a 30-day gym-membership package at Anytime Fitness. Today’s deal is valid at the Westmount Road and Victoria Street locations in Kitchener or the Cambridge location, and membership is only valid at the location at which it is activated. The package includes the following:
- A 30-day trial membership (a $65 value)
- Registration fees (a $60 value)
- One electronic access key (a $40 value)
- One 30-minute orientation (a $30 value)
- 30 days of unlimited tanning (a $25 value)<p>
Anytime Fitness’s trio of Kitchener and Cambridge locations fall under the ownership of Brian and Lisa Bazeley, who were awarded the 2010 Club Operators of the Year Award by Anytime Fitness’s franchising headquarters. As the name suggests, the gym is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year with nonstop security and a strict rejection of conventional space-time. During a 30-minute orientation session, Anytime’s friendly staff of fitness gurus introduce exercisers to the ins and outs of the gym’s machinery, including treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, rowing machines, and weights. Armed with this information, trainer’s tips, and an inspirational photo of Eugene Levy, gym bunnies can unlock doors at any hour with an electronic access key and more effectively march, stretch, or lift their way toward their fitness goals. Highlight the results of fat-frying and muscle-mass-magnifying sessions with 30 days of unlimited tanning in beds that paint ripply physiques a brilliant shade of bronze.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts more than 2,000 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio and Hammer Strength machines and hoist Iron Grip free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
