Mariner Square Athletic Club’s cheery color scheme and 50,000+ square feet of floor space lend an airy, upbeat vibe to every fitness session. Geared-up guests can traverse the short-circuit resistance-training room’s line of machines or take to the floor to hoist free weights and crank cardio machines using upper-body, lower-body, or vestigial-tail muscles. Floor-to-ceiling windows brighten the six-lane indoor pool, heated to comfort swimmers and deter ice monsters from skinny-dipping. The gym’s amenities also include racquetball, a sauna and whirlpool, locker rooms, free parking, and childcare services (extra fee, not included in the value of this Groupon).
Mariner Square Athletic Club’s expansive confines also house a quartet of studios that host more than 85 group exercise classes each week. Interval-training classes pique stamina and stoke fat-burning flames with a quickly rotating roulette of moves, and power-spin classes inspire fast pedaling with bumping tunes. After rigorous cardio sessions, exercisers can wind down in the flow-style Revitalizing Yoga or in Gentle Aqua, which gently works out achy, injured, and pregnant participants. Mariner Square’s instructors also teach Zumba, karate, core-centric Absolution, and tai chi classes, with springboard and reformer Pilates and CrossFit sessions available for an additional fee.
