Though 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 one-month membership and two personal-training sessions at Fitness 19 (a $99 total value). The membership fee is waived with today's deal.
Fitness 19's wide array of cardio, weight, and resistance-training equipment from Life Fitness and Hammer Strength chisels existing humans into shapely body sculptures. The one-month membership (a $19 value) lets gym-goers feast on a 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. Members 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 (each a $40 value). With two sessions, health adherents can make a customized fitness plan, 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/child per hour 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.
A cardio workout at Fitness 19 doesn’t just mean elevating your heart rate—it means choosing among state-of-the-art Life Fitness cardio machines, which range from treadmills and ellipticals to stair climbers and freight elevators. Free weights, such as plate-loaded Hammer Smith equipment, enhance the traditional strength workouts, and the squat machine and other weight apparatuses allow for more structured lifts. A team of personal trainers helps clients incorporate these fitness tools into personalized regimens, and workout classes such as the Silver Sneakers sessions for seniors.
