What You'll Get
While feeling the burn during a workout is generally a good sign, feeling the burn while sitting on the sofa means your sofa is in the fireplace. Engage in controlled, constructive sweat sessions with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a three-month membership (a $90 value) and two personal-training sessions (a $100 value) at Fitness 19 (a $190 total value).
Fitness 19 chisels existing humans into shapely body sculptures with a wide array of cardio, weight, and resistance-training equipment from the quality manufacturer Life Fitness. Members feast on the gym's cornucopia of workout machines, pumping up their pulses on the elliptical cross-trainers and preparing for an elevator-free postapocalyptic future on the stair climbers. Muscle-chasers can make use of a mélange of free weights, along with benches, power racks, and Smith-assisted squat machines.
Fitness 19's workout gurus share exercise expertise based on their protégés' goals in one-on-one personal-training sessions. With two sessions, health adherents can make a customized fitness plan and then wrestle it to the ground with the help of these cheery and determined deltoid derring-doers.
For an extra fee, parents can access the gym's supervised kids' room ($2/hour/child or $6/child monthly), where tykes can play with a treasure trove of games and toys while their guardians strive toward a muscle-bound horizon.
