It takes about 15 muscles to smile, 50 to frown, and 148 to save a curbside couch from life in a landfill. Soothe sympathetic sinews with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a half-hour hot-stone, Swedish, or relaxation massage at Glebe Fitness in The Glebe (a $40 value).
At Glebe Fitness, skilled orthotherapist Melinda Tombs soothes weary muscles with hot-stone, Swedish, or relaxation massages. In half-hour sessions, bodies nagged by tension, sore muscles, and bossy shoulder parrots purge their corporeal compromisers via Tombs’s skillful mitts, which knead muscles to help wring bodies free of mental and physical discomfort. Massages include the use of lockers and showers, and the gym can provide chilled mineral water and towel service on request. Buyers beset with particularly stubborn muscles or those who recently defrosted from a three-year deep freeze may apply this Groupon's value toward longer sessions ($45+/45 minutes). Tombs offers her services Monday–Thursday from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
For more than 20 years, trainers at Glebe Fitness have continually updated their techniques to keep pace with the best exercise studies and fitness techniques available. Their rotating catalogue of on-site classes includes such ubiquitous favourites as Zumba, Pilates, spinning, and yoga. They also helm daily boot camps that feature different exercises every day, building specific muscles up with specific workouts and specific compliments about their taste in music.
