People pick up habits at an early age, which is why children who exercise turn into adults who exercise, and children who spit turn into camels. Prepare your little one for the jungle of life with this Groupon.
$40 for 10 One-Hour Open-Play Sessions at Safari Run ($80 Value)
Kids aged 4–10 can climb, slide, and dash through an animal-themed jungle gym. Check the calendar for open-play sessions, which are held Monday–Friday.
With the help of her kids, certified personal trainer Jodi Hamilton-Eichensehr designed a family-friendly playspace celebrating the fun of fitness with games and obstacle courses centered on a giant animal-themed jungle gym. Guarded by a toucan and gorilla, the gym's labyrinthine interior conceals bridges, tunnels, ladders and slides, as well as a trapdoor to the Fountain of Youth. As kids traverse the gym, their bodies covertly enjoy a full cardio workout while building balance, hand-eye coordination, and confidence. Small-group fitness classes teach children about nutrition before building up their appetites with activities such as dashes through the jungle gym or sprints across a running track peppered with hurdles. Jodi also hosts adult classes, which emphasize fun, varied fitness, from cardio to strength training, to build parents' stamina during capture-the-flag tournaments at the office. Staffers also host unforgettable soirees for birthdays, which split guests' time between the jungle gym, party room, and video arcade.
