Though it’s never been proven, many suspect the Liberty Bell got its crack after ‘ole Honest Abe, in an effort to maintain his chiseled good looks, used it during a late-night bench-pressing session. Elevate your body to iconic status with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a three-month fitness package at Fitness 19, valid at the Grayslake and Lake Zurich locations (up to a $245 total value). The package includes the following:
- A three-month membership (up to a $155 value, including a $69 joining fee and a $35 dues lock-in fee that will carry over if the membership is extended at the end of the three-month trial)
- Two 60-minute personal-training sessions (a $90 value)
- One complimentary water bottle<p>
Fitness 19 welcomes exercisers into its pristine workout facilities lined with Life Fitness cardio machines, free weights, and fully staffed childcare rooms. A personal trainer works with fitness seekers to create motivating custom workouts, helping members set goals and chase them down with the precision of a saint bernard leading a search-and-rescue mission in an inflatable-ball pit. Heart rates rise and calories evaporate during jogs on treadmills and pedaling sessions on stationary bikes. Dumbbells and barbells encourage lifting and curling, and Smith machines help bodies perform squats safely and effectively. Make muscles ripple with plate-loaded strength-training equipment, an eight-station crossover cable, or high-intensity deadlifts with a complimentary water bottle.
Though Fitness 19 sometimes offers online discounts, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
