Washboard abs are much preferred to coinwash abs, which simply take your money, groan unpleasantly, and jiggle for an hour. Achieve the former body form with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-month membership, including the enrollment fee for new members, to either Downtown Athletic Club in downtown Miami or Paradise Gym in Coral Gables (up to a $277 total value).
The gleaming fitness centers are outfitted with full fleets of modern exercise equipment, experienced trainers, and schedules packed with yoga, Zumba, and a host of other health-enhancing classes. Develop a beach-worthy physique in Paradise Gym's Muscle Pump, or enlist in a spinning class at either location to improve cardiovascular fitness and learn how to safely outmaneuver rabid Segways. Nurture a healthier heart on treadmills and rowing machines, or channel your competitive spirit in the Downtown Athletic Club's basketball court, squash court, or boxing studio. Downtown Athletic Club also plays host to a climbing wall, perfect for pianists looking to cross-train their fingers or domestic divas with heaps of wet laundry to hang. After your workout, soothe sizzling muscles and wash away hard-earned sweat in the executive locker rooms.
- Until I began working in downtown Miami, I had no clue the Downtown Athletic Club existed. It is a hidden treasure. I have been working out all my life and I have never seen a club that looks like this one - South Beach meets fitness - very cool. – beachhoofer, Citysearch, Downtown Athletic Club
- This is the kind of gym where you feel at home. The staff is friendly and the members are regulars. – srth, Citysearch, Paradise Gym
