What You'll Get
Gymnasium derives from the Greek γυμνός (naked), which is how the ancient Greeks preferred to ellipticize and the reason many Americans subconsciously avoid the gym. Enjoy the gym without much of the nudity thanks to today's Groupon: for $50, you get five functional interval training (F.I.T.) sessions at Snap Fitness (a $100 value). This Groupon is valid only at the Tigard location. F.I.T. sessions are offered Monday–Friday at 6 a.m., 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 5:30 p.m., and 7 p.m., and Saturdays at 9 a.m.
Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable fitness-focused members to improve their physical well-being with a cornucopia of equipment, no matter the hours they keep. Prospective perspirers don't have to let The Man or a random street man tell them when to participate in their five F.I.T. sessions, which are spread throughout the week. Each one-hour session caters to the fitness goals of its 8–12 participants, focusing on circuit and interval training and incorporating a variety of exercises such as TRX Suspension, which works several muscle groups, and kickboxing, which helps improve tone and endurance. Practice balance on a BOSU ball or agile sidewalk-crack avoidance with an agility ladder. The cardio chieftains at Snap Fitness may then walk you through plyometric exercises. Results from Snap's F.I.T. sessions can include weight loss, increased stamina, flexibility, and lean-muscle mass. Participants can bask in Snap Fitness's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere that provides a refreshing change of pace from meat-market gyms and tough elementary-school weight rooms.
