If left unexercised, muscles become irritable and hyperactive, leading to restlessness, twitching, and the uncontrollable urge to curl a roommate's cat. Avoid embarrassing muscle movements with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a one-month membership to Central Queens Y in Forest Hills (a $37.50 value).
Central Queens Y fuels exercise fires for its members with 35,000 square feet of community-program space spread across five floors, including an exercise room, an indoor pool, and indoor playing courts. The gym, also known as the Body Shop Fitness Room, boasts a packed schedule and a cardio area full of calorie-burning equipment, such as Stairmasters, treadmills, and ellipticals. The Cybex strength-circuit and free-weight area pummels indolence from muscles with dumbbells, free weights, and lifting machines. The group exercise classes provide fun, engaging workouts with a supportive group environment. Try out a body-bolstering course such as Ballet Fitness Fusion, which melds ballet barre exercises with strength training, or unwind with a Hatha yoga class and learn fundamental yoga postures and meditative breathing.
A 25-yard heated indoor pool provides scheduled times for lap swimming, open-swim hours, and female- and male-only swim, and the full-court gymnasium lures in team players with a low-impact, rubberized floor, pickup basketball games, and flattery.
