Since the rise of the Internet, people have struggled to tear their now-useless phone books in half. Bulk up to succeed where others have failed with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get one month of open access to the gym (a $29 value), two group classes (a $30 value), 90 minutes of yoga (a $20 value), and a personal-training session (a $31.25 value) at RockFit Center in Rockford (a $110.25 total value).
RockFit Center's new workout facility crystallizes faltering musculature while kindling deadbeat calories with sleek equipment, one-on-one personal training, and group classes. Thirty days of open gym access lets sweat donors washboard their cores through exercise-ball workouts or by using the abundant machinery to get in shape for the Olympics' new jumping-jacks event. Otherwise, drop pounds in solidarity during two group classes held from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Cardiofit (Monday) boosts stamina, and Zumba (Wednesday) exercises the hip's swivel setting. BandTastic training (Thursday) gets bodies in sousaphone-carrying shape with explosive movements on a synthetic turf. A 90-minute yoga class held on Tuesdays and Thursdays keeps muscles from locking and speaking in all caps, and a personal-training session and a complimentary fitness analysis with one of RockFit Center’s experienced staff members establishes current fitness levels and guides patrons toward healthy goals.
