Fitness, unlike carnival rides and sentient voting booths, know no age limits. Get into age-defying shape with today's Groupon: for $35, you get 30 one-day drop-in passes to Atlantis Sports Club & Spa in Parsippany (a $450 value).
Fitness flourishes at Atlantis, a veritable workout world packing more than 25,000 square feet of the Sheraton Hotel in Parsippany with splashable pools and state-of-the-art workout equipment. With their mini membership, exercisers can frequent the facility up to 30 times, with open invitations to soak up heat in the steam rooms or dry saunas, build muscles with strength equipment, and perfect staring contest strategies in the granite-countered locker rooms. Unleash inner Neptunes with laps in the indoor and outdoor pools, or soothe fatigued flippers in the warm embrace of the gym’s jacuzzi. Cardio equipment by Life Fitness reinvigorates workouts and shakes up staid sweat-inducing routines, and distracts eye muscles with integrated LCD screens playing all-day loops of Rocky training montages. Atlantis’ one-day passes also unlock the camaraderie-building calorie busting of the gym’s group fitness classes. Running six days a week, Zumba, yoga, and Pilates classes hone core strength through near-daily doses of upbeat dance steps or variations on human pretzeling. Call for more information on class times and schedules.
Atlantis Sports Club & Spa
Safety-trained staff man all aspects of Atlantis's clubs, whether stationed near the free weights and resistance machines or leading group classes in practices such as yoga and Zumba. Treadmills, stationary bikes, and stairmasters set pulses racing without the need to keep convincing oneself that the oven's still on at home. As high windows set indoor pools sparkling at some locations, tykes reclaim their amphibious heritage in swim classes and adults aggressively burn calories as they cradle tender joints in aqua fitness classes. Afterward, guests can put in an intensive lounging session in the steam room or sauna.
