While feeling the burn during a workout is generally a good sign, feeling the burn while sitting on the sofa means your sofa is in the fireplace. Engage in controlled, constructive body burning with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a 29-day membership, eight semi-private personal training sessions, and unlimited group fitness classes at Big Sky (a $376.95 value), which has locations in Simsbury, Newington, and New Britain.
Recognized by the Hartford Advocate as Best Health and Fitness Center each year since 2003, Big Sky can shape specimens with myriad individual workout stations and more than 10 types of group fitness class. Therein, the self-improvement savants strive to foster a welcoming atmosphere for workers-out of all abilities and experience levels. Members obtain access to a far-reaching variety of machines, free weights, and cardio equipment by which muscles, like Picasso's famed sausage totem poles, can be formed into meaty works of art.
This deal notches eight 45-minute, semi-private personal training sessions to pursue and conquer fitness goals with supportive attention from an expert in exercise. Patrons can also treat their limbs with unlimited access to more than 65 group fitness classes scheduled each week. Feel free to tend to tendons with flexibility and breathing exercises in a 60-minute yoga session, or animate legs without drawing a life-size flipbook thanks to the 60-minute spin class.
Tall windows bathe Big Sky’s emporium in a shower of sunlight, where an armada of televisions entertain exercisers in the cardio areas.
