More people than ever are living a sedentary lifestyle: waking up in their racecar beds, driving to work in their racecars, sitting for eight hours in the passenger seats of experimental racecars as men in lab coats slam them into concrete walls, and then driving home again. Race to fitness with today’s Groupon to Colorado Springs Recreation Center. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get a punch pass for 10 visits (an $80 value).
- For $75, you get a punch pass for 20 visits (a $160 value).<p>
Swim lessons and the Master’s swim group are not included with this Groupon, and yoga classes require an additional $2 fee per class.
Visitors to Colorado Springs Recreation Center gain unfettered access to a full-service paradise of health and recreation, including an ultra-modern warm-water pool complex and a fitness center brimming with free weights and equipment for land-based exercise. Swimmers embark on aquatic odysseys in the pool, which encompasses multiple 25-yard lap lanes, a bubbly hot tub, a children’s play area with a two-story water slide, and a current river that gently carries passengers and commuting noodles across the complex. Shallow depths prove ideal for water walking and reenacting slow-motion fight scenes, and group classes such as Aqua-Fit and aquatic kickboxing draw on water’s natural resistance to tone muscles in a high-intensity, low-impact workout routine.
After drying off, visitors can work up a healthy sweat on the cardio and strength machines housed in the 5,000-square-foot indoor fitness center. Treadmills, elliptical trainers, and spin bikes maximize fitness results for runners, walkers, and bikers while keeping them safe from road-hogging reindeer, as free weights train biceps to mimic the hard curvature of nearby Pikes Peak. The fitness complex also hosts a calendar of group fitness classes such as Pilates and Zumba Gold, which build strength through balanced movements and energetic, easy-to-follow dance moves.
