Since the rise of the Internet, people have struggled to tear their now-useless phone books in half. Bulk up to succeed where others have failed with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a 10-visit pass to Downtown Fitness Center (a $70 value). This Groupon is good for the use of gym facilities at either of Downtown Fitness Center's two locations and for workout classes at its One Canal Place site.
Downtown Fitness Center prepares modern bodies for a fitter future with an arsenal of exercise equipment and a hard-breathing schedule of workout classes. Patrons at both locations can grunt in ancient Greek as they heft Olympic free weights, or attempt to recite Hamlet's soliloquy as they huff and puff on treadmills in the cardio theater. One Canal Place guests can limber up their limbs with group yoga classes seven times a week, or opt to try Pilates, spinning, or dancey-movin' Zumba. For post-workout sweat extractions and sore-muscle satisfactions, both locations boast a sauna.
Downtown Fitness Center
Life Fitness treadmills and Cybex weight equipment complement the rows of elliptical machines and recumbent bikes at Downtown Fitness Center’s studios. Personal televisions transform machines into teeny, tiny home theaters. For structured workouts, visitors can opt for classes that impart yoga, and cardio routines, or trainers can tailor custom programs to achieve individual fitness goals.
