Exercise leaves its imprint on well-toned muscles, unlike lethargy, which leaves its imprint on threadbare couch cushions. Make a muscular mark with today's deal: for $35, you get a five-visit pass to Palos Health & Fitness Center in Orland Park (a $75 value). The pass is good for gym access and fitness classes.
Palos's 80,000-square-foot workout fortress integrates medicine and fitness with a cache of equipment, amenities, and clinical programs to exercise muscles and minds. Five visits grant entrance to the center’s four group-exercise venues and a huge variety of classes, such as cycling, dance aerobics, and gentle yoga. Gym-goers can customize workouts with circuit and free-weight training equipment, an indoor cushioned track, and stretching areas. Lark through the lanes of a 25-foot lap pool, relax in the warm therapy pool, engage in aquatic aerobics, or compare prune-like pinkie toes in men's and women's whirlpools.
Complimentary locker-room amenities free up muscles to flex barbells instead of hair-dryer-laden gym bags, and a primary-colored collection of toys and games in the supervised kids' area builds baby biceps. From the brightly lit corridors of Palos's exercise rooms to its long lanes of cardio equipment, fitness fanatics will find a spacious gym environment to pursue personal goals.
