Ancient Greeks celebrated sports such as gymnastics, wrestling, and running around wildly with an open flame. Honor athletic history safely with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a day pass to Chelsea Piers Sports Center (a $50 value).
Protruding out into the cerulean waters of the Hudson River, the historic Chelsea Piers Sports Center encompasses 150,000 square feet of amenities that satisfy an exhaustive array of sporting desires. With a day pass, clients gain access to the health club, letting them lap the 25-yard indoor pool, scale daunting grades at the climbing wall and bouldering cave, work up a sweat at the expansive cardio studio, or spar with recently befriended primates at the boxing gym. The pass also grants access to the Center's fitness classes, 100 of which are offered each week. Fitness fanatics can take a 3-D online tour of the facilities to prepare for their visit and ensure that the space is devoid of any spandex-clad uncles.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Chelsea Piers Sports Center a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
The Mind Body Studio at The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers
Relaxing and working out don't usually go hand-in-hand, but things aren't usual at The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers. As soon as visitors set foot in the Mind Body Studio, they're set at ease by a modern lounge area, which boasts sleek bamboo floors, exposed brick walls, and sprigs of verdant plants. Inside the workout space, classes such as yoga and the barre method emphasize the mind-body connection. The Nalini Method classes also push students toward inner harmony with a combination of Pilates, aerobics, barre work, and yoga, helping students de-stress while toning limbs and burning calories without ever tossing any cheesecakes into open flames.
