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 $10, you get a 30-day membership with unlimited classes at Gold's Gym (a $39.95 value). This Groupon is good at two locations in East Greenwich and Pawtucket.
Gold's Gym began more than 45 years ago and today features an impressive array of next-generation fitness gadgets fit for results-oriented trainees. The 30-day pass includes a gym membership, giving buyers full access to all facilities and equipment. Classes such as Zumba, Turbo Kick, or Body Pump, give pass-holders endless opportunities to deliver seismic punches through cardio sound barriers. Exercisers seeking a more tranquil, centering workout experience can utilize yoga and Pilates classes, and go-getter garçons and calf-muscle queens can spin in a cycling class. Check the East Greenwich and Pawtucket class schedules for times and availability.
Since its 1965 founding in Venice Beach, California, Gold's Gym has dotted the globe with more than 600 locations where professional athletes and exercise newbies gather under the umbrella of personal strength. Nearly 3.5 million Gold's members chart and aim for their fitness peaks, perspiring beneath the gaze of certified personal trainers or pedaling beside peers at cycling sessions. In a diverse lineup of group classes, patrons strengthen cores with Pilates, finger-paint pictures of ninjas in martial arts, and amp up heart rates along to the pulsating soundtracks of Les Mills routines. Many Gold's Gym locations stockpile futuristic amenities, such as cardio machines with individual iPod docks and televisions that help keep patrons motivated.:m]]
