Without community centers to draw them together, people would wander aimlessly like gas molecules, meeting others only by chance before spontaneously bursting into flames. Form a triple bond with your peers using today's Groupon: for $64, you get a 30-day membership (either family or individual) and a $25 credit toward a service or class at the JCC Indianapolis in Indianapolis (a $149 value).
JCC Indianapolis welcomes guests of all ages to a 160,000-square-foot facility, which includes a spacious fitness center, aquatic complex, athletics field, and more. The fitness center keeps sweat glands occupied with an indoor competition pool, aerobics, dance, indoor-cycling studios, a gymnasium, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, an outdoor water park, and more. The $25 credit can be applied toward one of the various classes, such as how to prepare meals from home-grown vegetables in the healthy-cooking class ($5) or how to land an audition or talk your way out of speeding tickets in the acting workshop ($20/session). Guests are also free to bulk up or slim down with the myriad exercise courses (free for members), Saturday boot camp ($20), or personal training sessions ($28+). Children's classes engage youngsters bored of power-lifting Tonka trucks with encouraging activities such as boot camps ($10/session).
Arthur M. Glick JCC
For the past 50 years, people of all ages, faiths, and cultural backgrounds have gathered at the Arthur M. Glick JCC for attractions ranging from book festivals to a seasonal water park. Inside its 20,000-square-foot fitness center, visitors can break a sweat in the aerobics studio—with a spring floor that cushions joints—or swim laps in the six-lane competitive pool. During group workouts, athletes relieve stress with yoga poses, tone their physiques with boot camps, or practice Zumba moves to use with their up-and-coming boy band.
Through the JCC's educational programs, visitors can make their brains as well-toned as their bodies. Members cultivate their creative side with film screenings, art exhibits, and shows from celebrated performers. Alternatively, adult education classes can impart expertise on topics such as social media, cooking, calligraphy, and music. During the summer months, kids can learn and play at the JCC's camps, and adults can build their environmental expertise in the community garden, rather than by donning a tree costume in an effort to understand life on the other side.
