Exercising has come a long way from outrunning a lion until it reaches the point of exhaustion so its sleeping carcass could be bench- pressed and shot putted. Build muscle using nonliving weights with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a two-month membership (a $90 value), two months of unlimited tanning (an $80 value), and childcare (up to a $70 value) at Gold's Gym (up to a $240 total value) in Granite Falls.
Gold's Gym began more than 45 years ago, and now features an impressive array of next-generation fitness gadgets, a results-oriented focus, and clean facilities. Neophyte or expert gravity resisters can regularly finesse their fitness on a cardio machine, pump up in a controlled manner on strength-training machines, tighten up in the abdominal and functional stretching area, or stick with lifting bundles of rebar and commercial chest freezers.
Meanwhile, body bronzers can bulk up melatonin levels with a month of unlimited tanning, and pliable parents can drop off up to three miniature humans at Gold Gym's childcare center from 9 a.m.–noon, Monday–Thursday, 4 p.m.–8 p.m. on Fridays, and 9 a.m.–noon on Saturdays, where a friendly staff will ply kinders with a garden variety of toys, movies, crafts, penny stock tips, and more.
