Since the rise of the Internet, people have struggled to tear their now-useless phone books in half. Bulk up to succeed where others have failed with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a 60-day gym membership to Cardio-Go in Burnaby (a $189 value).
Employing an expert team of personal trainers, an on-site facility manager, and a resident medical director, Cardio-Go encourages patrons to burn calories and tone bodies with exercise equipment and an array of fitness classes. Precor cardio machines elevate heart rates, and strength-training machines help build birthday-balloon-crushing muscles. Samba and tango during Dance Fit classes, or wake up hibernating appendages during a Stretch Class. Led by resident medical director Dr. Baldev Sanghera, a crackerjack team of physiotherapists, massage therapists, and chiropractors help untangle and limber up high-strung muscles. Meanwhile, certified kinesiologists advise gym members on crafting personalized workout programs and camera-ready sweaty faces, and on-site trainers evaluate members' fitness progress. Gym members can protect valuables in lockers and can shower in the full-service change room.
