Humankind may look down on hamsters for their tendency to eat their young, but make no mistake—in the realm of quadricep strength, the wheel-running hamsters have us beat. Race to repel the rodents from ruling the roost with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five "spinning" cycling classes at Club Champions (a $75 value), located in Loveland, approximately 30 minutes northeast of Cincinnati.
While the term "spinning" may bring to mind Ed Sullivan–introduced plate-balancing variety acts of yesteryear, Club Champions' "spinning" classes ($15 per class) refer to stationary-exercise-bike classes. On "spinning" bikes, you and a gaggle of grounded gear grinders will be led by a certified instructor through 45 minutes of cycling. Spinning class gets the heart racing and helps tone both inner- and outer-thigh muscles. Each session can burn up to 450 calories, effectively wiping out that chop suey you had for breakfast. And with a flock of other fitnessers in the class with you, you'll find no shortage of support as you pretend you're pedaling up the snow-smothered face of Mount Everest.
Strap on your biking bloomers and join some of Club Champions' local-celebrity clientele at the gym's state-of-the-art facilities. Classes are now being offered on Monday through Friday 5 p.m.–6 p.m. and 6 p.m.–7 p.m. Sessions are in great demand, so be sure to call Club Champions to sign up for your stationary-cycling sessions.
