Humans most commonly perspire during calculus tests, before nerve-wracking dates, and after accidentally setting saunas on fire. Sweat away worries with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get 10 fitness classes (a $100 value) at Gold’s Gym in Rainbow City.
The marble-sculpted instructors at Gold’s Gym whittle weak bodies into hardened muscle masses with a schedule of classes for all experience levels. In bright, spacious rooms, fledgling health buffs can shake the dust off of rarely used muscles and strengthen exteriors until they're as awe-inspiring as an Edison on ice-skates.
Gentle yoga classes quiet anxious minds with stretches and honing poses, and muscle connoisseurs sculpt renaissance-worthy physiques with weights and resistance bands in the Body Blast sessions. Those who like to vent frustrations with force can punch and pound languishing limbs into toned submission during kickboxing classes, and students who prefer their disciplines blended can opt for bouts of Ultimix, a fusion of step, kickboxing, weights, and blindfolded unicycling. The walls of the facility are lined with mirrors, gifting fitness fiends a self-correcting perspective and the ability to watch bulk burgeon in real time. Gold's Gym also offers childcare in the Kid’s Club, so parental pumpers can relinquish their duties long enough to raise pulses up to a sufficiently pounding pace.
