Fitness, unlike carnival rides and sentient voting booths, know no age limits. Get into age-defying shape with today's Groupon: for $75, you get eight children's swimming lessons at Atlantis Sports Club & Spa in Parsippany (a $155 value).
Fitness flourishes at Atlantis, a veritable workout world spanning more than 25,000 square feet of the Sheraton Parsippany Hotel and equipped with splashable indoor and outdoor pools. Toddler tadpoles can dive into Atlantis's children's swimming lessons, organized according to each child's ability to doggy-paddle, crawl, and best dolphins at rounds of Marco Polo. Levels range from water babies, in which parents assist their flipper-free offspring through the crawl-focused starfish 3 level, to the shark level, which schools swimmers in more advanced strokes. Experienced instructors personally guide small groups of no more than six children every moment of this swimming school, creating a safe setting to begin aqueous educations.
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.
