Exercise is a pleasurable activity for both would-be athletes and recovering pyromaniacs desperate enough to settle for burning calories. Fuel fitness regimens with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get one month of unlimited spin classes at Gables Fitness in Coral Gables (a $99 value).
Gables Fitness facilitates fitness aspirations with a smorgasbord of sweat-inducing classes taught by passionate instructors. Spinning saddles riders of all stripes atop cycling bikes adjustable to each biker's desired resistance, allowing each the ability to choose his or her own exertion level. To the beat of bumping tunes, classes kick off with a muscle-readying warm-up before instructors lead riders through a series of phases to test endurance, speed, and the amount of baguettes that fit into each bicycle's basket.
Each class's curriculum will vary depending on the teacher, with most sessions ending with a final pedaling at all-out effort followed by a relaxing cool-down period. The gym's six-day schedule is host to morning and evening classes, keeping afternoons free in observance of bikes' preferred naptimes.
Though Gables Fitness sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Red Zone Fitness
For 11 years, the instructors and trainers have helped clients achieve their fitness and weight loss goals.

Experienced instructors lead students through group fitness classes that include Red Zone training, a group class for women that provides a heart-rate-monitored, full-body workout and strengthens the cardiovascular system in just 40- to 45- minutes with resistance and cardio training.
