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 $29, you get a three-month membership with unlimited tanning (a $195 value) and one personal-trainer session (a $60 value) at Anytime Fitness (a $255 total 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 Anytime Fitness’s three-month membership, which equips bodies with enough treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, and weights to make them fit enough to run a marathon inside of a swimming pool filled with mud. A one-hour personal-training orientation, guided by a former University of Delaware football player, familiarizes sheepish biceps with their new confidence-boosting dumbbell pals. Highlight the results of fat-frying and muscle-mass-magnifying sessions with three months of unlimited tanning to paint new, ripply physiques a brilliant shade of bronze. As an added bonus, this Groupon waives the $99 enrollment fee.
Anytime Fitness's open schedule makes sure you have no excuses not to get in shape—unlike its competitor, Nevertime Fitness, which only opens its single Barrow, Alaska, location during solar eclipses.
Anytime Fitness accommodates night crawlers and day denizens with 24-hour access to endless rows of equipment, group fitness classes, and personalized training. Custom regimens rounded out by nutritional advice from a certified trainer make each client feel special, like a diamond the size—and shape—of a horse. Group boot camps, alternatively, promote camaraderie and help participants stave off boredom by presenting a mixed array of drills. The gym's rows of TV-equipped treadmills, ellipticals, and stationary cycles with stair climbers help prepare legs for marathons and broken escalators. Weight machines, dumbbells, and kettlebells enable gym-goers to crank up muscle mass, and an unwinding experience on a massage chair or high-powered tanning bed sends clients off with a sense of relaxation.
