Getting in shape, much like speed-reading Russian literature, requires concentration and the strength to forge ahead through painful, protracted inner monologues.

- For $20, you get a punch card for 5 classes (a $50 value).

- For $40, you get a punch card for 15 classes (a $150 value).
Club One Fitness, a 24-hour gym, challenges guests to shatter their fitness routines with combat-sports instruction and exciting group exercise classes. Instead of just demonstrating jabs in a fragile fairy ring, Boxing for Fitness class teachers lead charges of all levels to an Olympic-size boxing ring to build coordination and stamina while teaching pugilistic fundamentals. Hatha-style yoga sessions build balance while busting stress, and Sports Conditioning classes help students train like athletes using an agility ladder and hand weights, leaving bodies more stalwart than a strongman dipped in titanium.
After class, guests can clean up in on-site locker rooms, which proffer attached saunas and complimentary day lockers to prevent pairs of shoes from eloping. Trained child-care pros armed with a PlayStation can entertain kids while parents work out (call for prices and availability).
Punch cards may be shared by more than one person, but today's Groupon does not constitute a membership to Club One Fitness.
Club One Fitness
With 24-hour access, aerobic and mixed-martial-arts group classes, and well-appointed facilities, Club One Fitness aims to be the ideal backdrop for any workout routine. The schedule of group exercise classes includes yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. Boxers spar with other members or against the gym's stash of weighted bags during boxing classes for adults and tykes, who learn the pugilistic art in an Olympic-sized ring that, according to the Washington Post, "bears no resemblance to the worn, dingy boxing gyms of Hollywood movies, even though some Gold and Silver Gloves fighters, and a few pros, have trained there."
The staff of personal trainers and athletes show new members the ropes with three complimentary orientation sessions sessions; during the first, staffers talk to new members about their workout history and goals, and show them how to use Life Fitness treadmills, LifeCycle exercise bikes, elliptical cross-trainers, and stair climbers. On the second visit, they explain how to use Hammer Strength and Life Fitness strength-training and toning equipment. On the third and final visit, staffers give members their own personalized workout program, calibrated to help them reach their goals. From there, members can forge their own fitness paths or buddy up with a personal trainer.
Staffed by trained personnel, the bright and roomy childcare center keeps young ones engaged with toys, a big-screen TV, and a PlayStation. After adults catch their own entertainment in the cardio theater, which projects movies as guests decimate calories, they can relax in the sauna, hop into the tanning beds, or shower off sweat and punching-bag tears.
