$49 for a two-month membership package ($188 value)
- Two-month gym membership including access to all Princeton Club and Club Xpress locations
- Unlimited use of hydromassage beds for two months
Members gain access to facilities during all open hours, freely shedding droplets of sweat in the strength-training center, which is equipped with Precor and Cybex machines, or the cardiovascular training center, which features adaptive-motion trainers and rowing machines. Personal-training sessions are also available, where certified trainers tailor workouts to patrons’ individual fitness goals.
Groupon holders also receive two months of access to the hydromassage beds, which feature cushioned surfaces that massage reclining bodies with jet streams of hot water, much like sleeping on a waterbed filled with warm chicken-noodle soup.
Dave Gerry started the Princeton Club with three simple tenets in mind: great trainers, exceptional equipment, and easy access. To realize that dream, he assembled a team of American College of Sports Medicine–certified personal trainers to helm the cardio and strength-training centers 24 hours a day.
Whether working out solo, in a group class, or with a trainer to remind them that bench-pressing beehives is safer with a spotter, guests can drop their young ones off at the free childcare center. Splashes fill the natatorium as swimmers paddle across the six-lane lap pool, as the resistance-current pool's adjustable waves enable guests to walk in place. A dip in the whirlpool soothes stress, and the steam room's eucalyptus aromatherapy and sauna's rejuvenating heat send bodies back into the world refreshed. Above the club, tennis and soccer players soak in vistas of Madison as they duke it out on the rooftop garden's turf. The competition continues indoors on basketball, racquetball, and volleyball courts.
