Getting in shape, much like speed-reading Russian literature, requires concentration and the strength to forge ahead through painful, protracted inner monologues. Forge ahead toward fitness with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a 30-day membership including unlimited fitness classes at Columbia Fitness in Sammamish (a $90 value).
Columbia Fitness is a branch of Columbia Athletic Clubs that helps solidify soft bodies with muscle-molding machinery and heart-pumping group fitness classes lead by certified trainers. Flexing their 30-day memberships, guests can sweat off spare tires and Dewey/Warren '48 bumper stickers on Columbia's cardio and strength equipment, or join their peers for a mass exodus of inches during an unlimited number of Pilates, boot-camp, and circuit classes. The gym also houses a juice bar for refueling postworkout and a daycare center for watching over children ($4.50 fee per hour). Those that decide to continue their relationship with Columbia Fitness will also receive a $29 discount on their future membership signing fees, and half of the wedding album in case of a divorce.
The joining promotion currently on Columbia Athletic Clubs' website is for the joining fee only; this Groupon is for a full month of membership, and still offers the best deal available.
Columbia Athletic Clubs
Snohomish County's largest full-service family athletic club, Columbia Athletic Clubs has something for everyone. Nearly one hundred group exercise classes are offered each week; Cycle Cross takes place in the cycling studio while Water Aerobics and Aqua Motion utilize the Big Pool. Hot yoga and classes in the Mind/Body Studio come included with each membership. There's also an indoor salt water lap pool for advanced swimmers and shiny-sunken-object-retrievers. A talented group of personal trainers work with clients to get the most out of every workout.
The club's amenities extend beyond pure fitness. The Silver Lake Cafe serves up healthy and tasty meals, and massage therapy is offered onsite. At the Kids Club, youngens can play games under the supervision of an experienced staff while parents hit the gym.
