Like a tree house, a gym never lets non-members inside and always deflects frogs fired from the neighborhood bully’s slingshot. Hurry up the rope ladder with today's Groupon: for $33, you get a three-month gym membership to Rochester Athletic Club (up to a $99 value) at any of five locations: Fairport, Greece on West Ridge Road or Greece Ridge Center Drive, Pittsford, or Rochester.
Rochester Athletic Club offers a cadre of fitness services, from solitary weight and cardiovascular pursuits to group-fitness classes and personal trainers, all in clean, cutting-edge facilities. Dumbbells, plate-loaded machines, and other weights anxiously await use in expansive weight-training rooms for experts and beginners. Enjoy new cardiovascular and resistance-training equipment to pep up heart rates, metabolism, and the ability to get to the office water cooler before it runs dry. Group-fitness classes allow motivation-seeking movers a variety of exercise opportunities, including cardio classes, all levels of yoga, Zumba, and ab lab. Eager personal trainers are happy to aid exercisers seeking pointers on equipment and fitness regimens, as well as physicists dumbfounded by the energy-producing potential of lines of thrumming treadmills. With monthly fitness evaluations, club members stay on track to meet fitness goals and keep up healthy habits in and out of the gym. With childcare available (for an additional fee) every day but Sunday, working out is easy even if you live in a shoe.
Though Rochester Athletic Club sometimes offers other discounts online, this Groupon represents the best deal available.
BAC for Women
Rick Rugg and Bob Schiffhauer founded their first gym in Buffalo in 1980 and now boast a network of six women-only gyms. In addition to personal training, instructors at these facilities lead hundreds of group fitness classes, including cycling, yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. After workouts, guests can slip into saunas and private showers; most locations also have steam rooms, and the Perinton location has a pool, which hosts such classes as Aqua-cise.
