Like gold chains, hair, and love, muscles are better when they are not tangled. Enjoy the benefits of loosened tissue with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a one-hour Swedish or deep-tissue massage at Foundation Fitness, with locations in DC and Annandale, Virginia (a $100 value).
Relaxation finds a home inside Foundation Fitness's full-service gym, where licensed massage therapists administer carefully delivered services. The Swedish massage applies gentle pressure to knead stress into a pliable puddle of goo, with soothing strokes causing the lymphatic system to spring awake like shadow hunters on a sunny Saturday morning. The deliberate strokes and direct pressure of the deep-tissue massage work into the trenches of tissue, alleviating pain and unraveling muscle knots.
Please note that availability may be limited through January 1, 2012.
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.
