Exercise would be a doubly efficient venture if people could split into two halves and have both body sections burn calories simultaneously by riding a tandem bike. Today's Groupon works out your fitness while maintaining your monoist identity. For $75, you get a two-month, all-access membership with optional tanning and a personal training session (a $265 value) at FIT Athletic Club on West Gray Street near the River Oaks Shopping Center.
A two-month, all-access membership at FIT provides a bevy of options for fledgling fitness-seekers and seasoned sportfolk alike. All access means just what it sounds like; waltz on in to any of the available classes, which include a diverse spectrum of muscle molders, including yoga and Pilates, martial arts, cycling, and GroupX classes that feature a mélange of fitness techniques. One personal training session (a $75 value) with a fitness expert adds a sense of structure to the membership, as the trainers are experts at gently pushing trainees just outside of their pillowy comfort zones.
Embarking on a fitness routine is a daunting affair. Today's Groupon offers a chance to begin the crusade with the help of expert trainers and a great facility, all without the tiresome business of fighting in chainmail. Along with FIT's classes, you'll have access to its upper-echelon fitness equipment. Recently, its entire cardio section was revamped, with more than 30 pieces of cutting-edge equipment added. Tanning (regular value of $20 per month) is also available for anyone who wants to brown his or her pelt for hunting season.
- ...a great place for the fitness minded who also like their cushy amenities. This gym even smells good, with a modern decor and very nice locker rooms...The group fitness classes are hard to beat, especially the yoga classes. – Kelly D., Insider Pages
- It is never overcrowded, they have excellent equipment, a convenient location, very professional clientele and staff, and the facilities are immaculately clean. – Jeff Harrison, Citysearch
- Likewise when I bring friends to FIT, they are usually shocked at how attractive all the people are, like stepping into a Men's Fitness magazine (I'm male, mostly weight training and cardio). – Joe F., Insider Pages
FIT Athletic Club
At FIT Athletic Club, the sounds of clattering weights, whirring treadmills, and friendly chatter fill the gym from dusk to dawn. These energetic sounds play out over state-of-the-art strength and cardio equipment and high-end amenities such as a steam room and sauna. Members who tire of going it alone enjoy unlimited access to more than 300 group classes each month. After a tough workout, FIT Athletic Bar's smoothie selection gives exercisers a nutritious way to refuel, and the bar’s free WiFi lets them check email, update social networks, or Google the best ways to snag the available treadmill for a date Saturday night.
