Perspiration gets mischievous when cooped up inside the body, acting out by drenching armpits on first dates and disguising itself as tears during job interviews. Release disgruntled body water with today's Groupon: for $25, you get three day passes to Norton Pines Athletic Club (a $45 value) in Spring Lake.
Norton Pines Athletic Club's rave-attracting staff maintains an expansive offering of workout facilities including muscle-challenging machinery, group-exercise studios, ball courts, and a rock-climbing wall. Day passes include access to all of these facilities, with the exclusion of the tennis courts (tennis-court access costs an additional $13/day). An array of cardio machines, such as elliptical machines, treadmills, and rowing machines, elevate heart rates so they can reach the cookies on top of the refrigerator. Varying sizes of bicep curlers are available to primp muscular aesthetics in the weight room, which houses both weight-training machines and free weights.
Multi-threat athletes thrive in an atmosphere that caters to orb-lobbing whims with basketball and racquetball courts, and a swimming pool offers low-impact cross-training. Norton Pines' schedule of group classes runs the gamut from ab-hardening standards, including kickboxing, yoga, and Pilates, to new hits, such as Creative Power––a class that weaves light free-weight moves and music into a choreographed muscle flash mob. Practice for playpen escape in your next incarnation on a rock-climbing wall equipped with automatic belays.
A variety of extra-fitness amenities at Norton Pines include childcare services for exercising parents ($5/child, not included in this Groupon). Guests in search of a more relaxing sojourn can unwind in Norton Pines' saunas and whirlpool or mingle in the cozy lounge accented with stone walls, leather couches, flat-screen TVs, and a fireplace.
