In today's workplace, sleeveless, bicep-broadcasting business suits are an increasingly common sight, and deal-closing golf games are eschewed in favor of blood- and sweat-slicked cage matches. Get in shape for the upcoming merger of brawns and business smarts with today's Groupon. For $25, new clients get a 25-day membership to BodyBusiness Health Club & Spa, a 25th-anniversary membership offered exclusively through Groupon. Every new member to BodyBusiness receives a complimentary orientation from a personal trainer, enrollment in a fitness-planning program, and complete access to fitness classes, equipment, and aquatic area. Members also get myriad other perks, including periodic invitations to wellness seminars and lectures. This deal is good for both the new Davenport Village and the original Anderson Lane locations.
With 26 years of experience pumping up the Austin area, BodyBusiness knows what works: personal trainers on the exercise floor to answer your questions; a steamroom and pool to help you unwind; a full range of cardio machines and free weights; and group classes, such as Pilates, water aerobics, spinning, and yoga. BodyBusiness has also learned what does not work: chiefly yelling classes, greased barbells, and nude squat workout power hour.
If you look forward to going to the gym instead of dreading it, you'll be more apt to stay on track with your fitness routine. That's why the friendly staff at BodyBusiness designed the gym to make you feel welcome and comfortable. When you hand them a sopping, stinky towel, they'll say "Thanks," and nail it up on their trophy wall next to a photo of a horse riding a man. While you're doing chin-ups, they'll shine your shoes, and when you emerge from the locker room, you'll be swarmed by a hired staff of child actors screaming for autographs and hair-ruffling.
Citysearchers give the BodyBusiness Health Club & Spa Davenport four stars and awarded it Best of Citysearch for Best Austin Health Club, Best Austin Nutritionists, and Best Austin Personal Trainers in 2007; Citysearchers give the Anderson location 4.5 stars and awarded it Best of Citysearch for Best Austin Yoga in 2006 and Best Austin Health Club in 2005:
- This gym is the cleanest in Austin. I use 2 of them Davenport and the one on Anderson. Best maintained and professional atmosphere. Gatta see to believe. Maybe I'm a hygiene freak- but this facility was #1 choice for me. Some other options just don't maintain their appearance. – MRGsmart

- I have been a member of BodyBusiness almost since it opened. Having belonged to several gym in Austin prior to that, I can honestly say that this place is by far superior to all the others. The staff is very competent and friendly. The aerobics classes are great and offer a lot of variety. And, you won't find a cleaner health club facility in town. – stevec5375
BodyBusiness Health Club & Spa
The professional fitness coaches of BodyBusiness Health Club & Spa devote all their time to their profession, unlike many trainers who divide their time among obligations. This focused devotion manifests itself in the group classes and nutritional programs in which clients can participate. Part spa, part fitness center, and part dragon, BodyBusiness's two locations allow guests to build up a sweat during a personal-training session, then indulge in some R&R by enjoying a massage or facial or sitting in the steam room.
