People go to the gym to get away from the office, with its constant barrage of workplace e-mails and its stuffy insistence on people not throwing sweat-soaked towels on the floor. Cut through outmoded ideas of etiquette with this Groupon.

Teams of certified personal trainers and group fitness instructors lead a host of strength-training, cardio, and LesMills courses. Exercisers can trod off calories in Zumba classes, chase down fitness goals in spin sessions, or transform sedentary bone-warmers into lean, metabolism-bolstering muscle in TRX. Members work out at their leisure in the 24-hour facility, snuggling up to futuristic Star Trac weight machines, heaving old-fashioned free weights, or kicking heartbeats up in the cardio room.<p>
Club 14 Fitness
Club 14 Fitness' roster of trainers reads like the manifest of a submarine on its way to SEALAB III. It includes one University of Chicago educated biologist, one former Navy man, one chiropractor-turned-holistic healer, one nutritionist, and the first runner-up in the Mr. Wyoming bodybuilding competition. Together, they downright plaster the walls with all manners of certifications, issued by everyone from AFAA to CrossFit. They lean hard on their multifarious backgrounds to build personal-fitness regimens and a schedule of calorie-blasting classes, including a lineup of LesMills sessions, that firm up bodies more effectively than falling asleep in a cement mixer.
When not dancing or spinning through group fitness sessions, members can bolster heart rates in the cardio room, hoist free weights, or target hyper-specific muscle groups on the gym's cache of Star Trac equipment. Guests wind down in the wood-paneled sauna, slake thirst at the juice bar, or bronze up in the tanning bed. To make getting to the gym more accessible, Club 14 keeps kids entertained with childcare and pint-sized fitness programs, and keeps its doors open 24 hours. All of this earned the gym the Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year award in 2010.
