Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a VIP trial membership with four one-hour personal-training sessions, 30 days of unlimited gym access, a 30-day guest pass, and a T-shirt at Fusion Fitness Center (a $79 value).
Physiques are shaped and heartbeats elevated within Fusion Fitness Center's spacious studio, where attentive trainers help exercisers reach their fitness goals. For 30 days, VIP trial members are granted unlimited access to the fitness center, which abounds with sleek cardio machines, weights, and flat-screen TVs. Membership includes four one-hour, one-on-one sessions with a friendly and knowledgeable trainer, who will help tailor a workout to match your fitness needs. Take advantage of the 30-day guest pass and bring along a friend to chat with while jogging or partner with in a dumbbell catch. The VIP package is rounded out with a free T-shirt to sport while exercising or pin up to your fridge to create the illusion of a live-in trainer. Replenish energy after an intense workout with a shake or beverage from Fusion's smoothie bar.
Fusion Fitness Center
Since 2006, the staff at Fusion Fitness Center has fostered a welcoming space for their members to come and find fitness, challenging and encouraging them along the way. Rows of elite Precor cardio machines fill the floor of the main room, including treadmills, elliptical trainers, and bikes. Tucked around the corner in the group fitness room, trainers challenge members with 45-minute F.I.T.—functional interval training—classes, where exercisers toss medicine balls, swing kettlebells and heavy ropes, and stretch TRX suspension bands until they cry uncle. The trainers limit F.I.T. classes to six people so they can dole out ample individual attention.
The staff also helps members hone in on individual fitness goals, such as losing weight or running a marathon, during personal-training sessions. To fuel sweat sessions, staffers mix up smoothies filled with nourishing ingredients to help bodies recover or add resistance to tongue-curls.
