Muscle weighs more than fat, making retired body builders nature's best paperweights. Get buff and avoid scattered utility bills with today's Groupon to Aviator Sports and Events Center, located on Flatbush Avenue in southeast Brooklyn. Choose between two options:
- For $25, you get a 30-day fitness-center membership (a $100 value).
- For $5, you get two climbs on the center's indoor rock climbing wall (a $10 value).
Body caretakers head to the fitness center at Aviator to sweat the lead out in more than 5,000 square feet of Hammer Strength weight-training equipment and Life Fitness cardio machines. With membership, exercise-enacters get a free personal-training session, exposing them to the weighty ideas of a certified trainer, who'll help attune workouts to individual fitness levels and goals.
Members also gain access to a wide array of aerobic group fitness classes, with Pilates, interval training, and cardio classes raising heart rates like a tattoo artist during a red-ink shortage. During the FDNY sessions, a New York City firefighter challenges eager students to push their stubborn muscles outside their comfort zones with intense strength training and conditioning exercises. The center also offers complimentary body-fat tests so members can set quantifiable goals to reach in the coming months.
The second option lets curious climbers get a glimpse of how to take on a peak thanks to the beastly 35-foot Aviator Rock, which dares all comers to scale its craggy crevices and passionately grunt Sylvester Stallone quotes. Open climbing hours are normally held Friday through Sunday, though times and days sometimes change due to private events, so it's best to call ahead to confirm availability.
