Working out is No. 3 on the list of most popular daily activities in America, behind not working out and teaching dogs to swear. Spend your time wisely with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get two months of unlimited gym access and group fitness classes at Better Bodies (a $126 value). This Groupon must be activated by January 10, 2012.
Better Bodies’ more than 150 workout stations hum with the sounds of weights clinking and chests heaving, and its group fitness studios set the stage for a frenzy of calorie burning in 22 classes for all ability levels. This plurality of class options reflects the gym’s commitment to keeping workouts as engaging as they are effective—students can hone their strength and balance with tai chi on one day and sweat away calories in a cycling class on the next. Instructors shout out their support as feet shuffle to and fro in a half-hour Intro to Step class, and a 45-minute potpourri of Pilates, yoga, and core exercises challenges both minds and bodies, like bench-pressing the great American novel. A weekly schedule of more than 60 sessions frees students from the bondage of busy schedules and beckons them to follow the whims of the moment.
Those who prefer to craft their own workout regimens can take full advantage of the gym’s armory of fitness machines to defend against encroaching waistlines. Glistening rows of treadmills and stacked weights give way to cross-trainers and bench-press areas, where friendly barbells whisper words of encouragement in weight lifters’ ears.
Though Better Bodies offers a free seven-day pass to prospective members, this Groupon still represents the best value for a two-month period.
Better Bodies Fitness & Training
High-tech cardio and weightlifting equipment sprawls across 150 workout stations at Better Bodies, where a knowledgeable staff of instructors and personal trainers aims to cultivate an unintimidating atmosphere for patrons of all fitness levels. More than 60 group fitness classes per week singe calories through cycling, aerobics, and martial arts, and customized weight-loss programs spur fitness goals outside of the gym with step-by-step guidance, personal consultations, and meal plans. Vibrant purple and yellow walls surround treadmills, stationary bikes, and shelves bearing Beverly International supplements within Better Bodies’ bright interior, and a fleet of flat-screen TVs entertains exercisers not busy bench-pressing their sweatbands.
