Like Hawaii, relaxation can be a challenging state to reach. Ensnare elusive serenity with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour Swedish or deep-tissue massage at Foundation Fitness (a $90 value). This Groupon is valid at the Washington DC and Annandale locations.
Foundation Fitness's licensed massage therapist helps restore weary skeletons while emptying out deep pockets of stress from each client during individualized fitness and massage services. Wrapped in a cozy cocoon filled with aromatherapy candles, soft lighting, and calm music, clients can opt for a Swedish massage to help attain a sense of relaxation and renewed energy. Designed to help increase circulation, the light to moderate strokes of this massage may also help to eliminate stored toxins and accumulated stress. Clients may also seek relief from pain and sports-related injuries with a deep-tissue massage. Firm pressure may help activate deep trigger points within muscle tissue to restore balance and alignment and make you forget your past life as an evil mastermind's pet cat.
In addition to massage therapy, Foundation Fitness helps instill and maintain wellness through personal training and meal planning tailored to the needs of its clients. The well-maintained facilities feature cardio and workout machines as well as free weights and mirrors full of encouraging doppelgängers.
Foundation Fitness takes a holistic approach to health by developing personal wellness programs that incorporate nutrition, strength training, cardio, and massage. At all four locations, custom plans are kicked off with a fitness assessment based on the Polar Body Age system, which determines a physical body age and helps track personal goals throughout the program. After the assessment, clients join skilled trainers for one-on-one and small-group sessions, as well as boot camps geared toward goals ranging from just toning up to bench pressing the moon. To further help guests down their results-driven paths, nutrition coaches step in to offer individualized eating plans, and massage therapists ease aches and facilitate greater range of motion.
