While secret societies have terrific members-only benefits, their gorilla-centric initiation rites are often illegal. Make a solemn fitness vow that's legal with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 30-day health-club membership at Powerhouse Gym with unlimited classes ($35), three personal training sessions plus an initial consultation ($214), and a 20-minute massage ($59) from ProFormers Training and Fitness in South Hackensack (a $299 total value).
ProFormers is a training company located within Powerhouse Gym that is devoted to helping clients reach their highest levels of health and happiness, providing members access to top-of-the-line equipment, unlimited group classes, and individualized fitness and nutritional coaching. Today's Groupon gets you some of each, plus a 20-minute massage and sweaty camaraderie with new future Facebook friends. Launch your 30-day transformation with the first of three hourlong personal training sessions, during which a trainer will custom-fit a fitness routine that flatters both your current body and future goals. At any time during the membership, supplement your one-on-one workouts by using the gym's high-end weight and cardio machines, or by attending unlimited group classes in BodyPump, Zumba, spinning, yoga, and more.
To help make working out as easy as eating pie, Powerhouse Gym is open daily, with early-morning and late-night hours on weekdays. The gym also features a smoothie and snack bar for packing in protein and staving off unhealthy cravings. Busy buzzards exhausted from overwhelming schedules at the local vulture factory may want to take advantage of cushy accommodations, such as day care services, a ladies-only workout area, and perennially necessary locker rooms. Call ahead to schedule your first visit and personal training sessions, and check the class schedule to start planning the rest of your visits.
New clients only.
