Exercise is a pleasurable activity for both would-be athletes and recovering pyromaniacs desperate enough to settle for burning calories. Fuel fitness regimens with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a five-class punch card for cycling classes at Life Health & Fitness Club in Astoria (a $100 value).
Life Health & Fitness’s certified cycling instructors guide clients in calorie-burning classes that put stationary pedals to fitness center pavements six days a week. Each approximately one-hour workout trains pedal-pushers in cardio, endurance, and speed techniques as each student powers their stationary steed to the only destination it’s capable of reaching—fitness. The spotless, 20,000-square-foot facility houses ample amenities for exercising ease. Complimentary towel service equips patrons with plenty of clean sweat-soakers, while a secure locker room promises visitors a safe place to keep stationary-bike helmets and spare gym ascots. Before cycling, in between workouts, or after a long day of faux alpine racing, speedsters can calculate calories burned on the gym’s complimentary WiFi, or cool down at the juice bar.

Life Health & Fitness packs a single floor with endless aisles of strength and cardio equipment complemented by pristine locker facilities and expansive group fitness studios. During 15 different group fitness classes, including Zumba, Pilates, yoga, and indoor cycling, instructors whip bodies into shape in motivating, high-energy settings. Meanwhile, motivating coaches help guests slim physiques or build up muscle bulk during personal-training sessions. After sweating off inches from the waistline, guests can unwind or hone their Smokey Robinson impression in the private showers before drying off by way of locker-room towel service.
