Early 20th-century strongmen used their muscled brawn to inspire children and help transport large chunks of Caesar's palace from Rome to its current Las Vegas location. Follow the mustachioed hunks' lead with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one month of unlimited classes and gym use plus two half-hour personal-training sessions at Lava Sport & Fitness (a $378 total value). Purchase a Groupon for one of the following five locations: La Jolla, Carlsbad, La Mesa, Kearny Mesa, and Point Loma. This Groupon is available for new clients only.
Lava Sport & Fitness offers a wide variety of monthly fitness classes across its five locations, providing fitness aficionados and exercise newcomers a spacious, mutual home base. The monthlong unlimited access to one of Lava's five gyms (up to a $298 value) includes attendance to any available fitness classes. Check the list of locations to see which classes are offered near you, and then try your hand at an indoor cycling course, or your soon-to-be blurrily speedy leg at a kickboxing class. Lava also offers group instruction on jiu jitsu, Pilates, and yoga, as well as specifically targeted workouts such as the abs class or the butt and guts course.
In addition to classes and gym use, two half-hour personal-training sessions (an $80 value) turn ordinary citizens into ordinary citizens with more subtly defined muscles and the endurance to face the coming "escalator apocalypse"—the end of moving stairs as we know them. Personal-training sessions are available in the aforementioned areas, as well as weight training, Muay Thai, weight loss, and more, offering one-on-one guidance on the fast track to a sturdier skeleton case. Each session includes body-fat testing, measurements, and blood-pressure readings so you and your trainer can maximize your excitement when you begin to noticeably exert control over these numbers.
Boxing classes are also available, and provide fighters with a safe, effective way to relieve the stress caused by adorable but increasingly inconsiderate lines of street-crossing ducklings. Lava's friendly, experienced staff of instructors and trainers ensures results and returns when they check up on their clients with encouraging emails full of bench-pressing emoticons.
