Exercise keeps the body in peak condition, which explains the marbleized ThighMaster lying next to Michelangelo's David. Enjoy an anatomical renaissance with today's Groupon: for $50, you get 10 passes to LivingWell Health Club at Washington Hilton (a $150 value).
LivingWell Health Club's bright, airy confines host ample amenities for low- and high-impact exercise, paving the way for both new and seasoned gym-goers to reach their fitness goals. Ultra-modern cardio machines equipped with personal flat-screen televisions line floor-to-ceiling windows, which allow exercisers to distract themselves with some cardio theater of the living. Outside, a seasonal 25-yard saline pool keeps lap-swimmers and aquatics classes warm with an installed heating system, and indoor group exercise classes add a dollop of camaraderie to workouts, as instructors corral exercisers in such traditional workouts as yoga, boot camp, Pilates, and Zumba. LivingWell also hosts Latin Dance Mix Nia, which coalesces fiery choreography with therapeutic martial arts moves, and TRX suspension, a body-weight resistance routine that utilizes hanging straps to elevate extremities and hoist sleeping strongmen out of the way.

LivingWell Health Club & Pool
Nestled in the luxurious confines of the Washington Hilton, the LivingWell Health Club & Pool proffers workers out an ideal space to keep corporeal forms in tip-top shape. Eschewing the average hotel gym experience—little more than a room with some treadmills and free weights—the LivingWell Health Club offers up a full slate of group lessons and personal-training sessions. Those looking for solo exercise can avail themselves of high-tech cardio machines, each equipped with personal-entertainment systems that allow guests to watch TV, pop in a movie, or turn to their favorite static-filled input feed. During the warmer months, the center's pool delights dedicated swimmers and youthful waders alike.
