Without a variable workout, exercise quickly becomes nothing more than a Sisyphean routine of lifting boulders, running up hills, and running away from sudden boulder avalanches. Shake up routine training rituals with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two fitness studio classes (a $20 value each) and $20 worth of healthy dinner fare at the Clubhouse Grille (a $60 total value) at Hudson Valley Health and Tennis Club in Hastings-on-Hudson.
The Hudson Valley Health and Tennis Club's new fitness center invites avid exercisers to slim-down, sweat, and shape in a diverse lineup of group classes. Feet learn to communicate without words in kickboxing classes, toes tap to the rhythm of their own heartbeats in hip hop cardio dance, and Zumba invites torsos to shimmy off calories in tune with Latin beats played by a kettlebell mariachi band. Bodies looking to tone up will discover newfound strength in body-sculpting and boot-camp classes, and habitual torso twisters can bend seamlessly from downward facing dog to backward glancing coyote in Vinyasa flow yoga.
After a sweat-inducing workout session, sit down at the Clubhouse Grille's outdoor, riverside patio, open 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. Monday–Saturday, to enjoy a heaping helping of healthy fare. Take in leafy Mediterranean nourishment with a greek salad loaded with kalamata olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, and feta ($8.49) or lick newly limber chops after a plate of teriyaki salmon ($22.95). A grilled-vegetable wrap snuggles eggplant, zucchini, roasted peppers, and onions into an edible blanket for a sleepover in your stomach ($8.49), and the pasta of the day ($11.99) lets active bellies load up on carbs without loading themselves down.
