Going to the gym is a safe way to work out, unlike doing streetlight pull-ups or fighting public-disturbance charges. Lift lawfully with today's Groupon: for $30, you get 30 day passes to use over six months at The Covington Athletic Club (up to a $300 value). Though The Covington Athletic Club is open 24 hours a day, these passes may only be used from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Covington Athletic Club—a new 6,000-square-foot fitness facility—lures exercisers with Precor equipment, group workouts, and friendly staff members. Instead of pantomiming the ocean to make muscles ripple, visitors can tone their entire physiques at a strength center or target their favorite muscles with free weights. Treadmills and elliptical trainers help guests target calories with low-impact strides, and an adaptive-motion trainer lets them walk, climb, and lunge their way to physical fitness.
Groupon holders may attend classes scheduled between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., including Zumba, a 60-minute cardio workout filled with dance steps inspired by salsas, merengues, and the tangy flavor of beef jerky. Led by an instructor with three decades of posing experience, Vinyasa yoga sessions build strength, stamina, and focus over the course of an hour. The changing rooms at The Covington Athletic Club feature showers to transport guests to daydreams steamier than a soap opera set in a rice cooker. Guarded by digital lockers and a facility-wide surveillance system, purses can take a load off as their owners chase fitness goals large and small.
