While human fitness originated by running long distances to avoid being eaten, it now dictates that we run in place in order to avoid eating. Survive with the fittest thanks to today's Groupon: for $19, you get a three-month gym membership plus a fitness assessment from a physical therapist at Bardstown Road Physical Therapy Group (a $45 value).
As a medically oriented gym, the fitness center at Bardstown Road Physical Therapy Group focuses on helping clients recover from physical injuries, and also treats specific medical conditions such as diabetes and hypertension.
A physical therapist monitors the gym at all times, and will happily introduce you to the bashful exercise equipment, dole out nutrition tips, and help you tailor a workout plan to your health and fitness goals, be it lowering blood pressure or circumnavigating the globe on a pogo stick.
Get started by challenging the treadmill to a race, or forgo the chisel and allow the elliptical machines and stationary bicycles to carve muscles into a shape worthy of the Louvre.
Before you lift a single weight or tread a single mill, however, Bardstown Road Physical Therapy Group will treat you to a fitness assessment that sets realistic goals and is geared toward measurable results. The positive, comfortable atmosphere forgoes the intimidating big-gym atmosphere, with its endless rows of equipment and sweaty giants.
