The word 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. Today's Groupon gives new customers all the benefits of the gym without much of the nudity: for $25, new members get a three-month membership, waived enrollment fee, and 24-hour key-card access at Snap Fitness (a $175 value). This Groupon is valid only at the Loveland location.
With the 24-hour-access key card, perspective perspirerers don't have to let The Man tell them when to help themselves to Snap's top-of-the-line cardio and strength equipment. Arrive at Snap super late and pretend you're working out in an Edward Hopper painting, or pound the treadmill at 4 a.m. and get pumped to host a morning shock-jock radio show. Even fitness fiends who exercise during conventional hours can bask in Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere that provides a refreshing change of pace from meat-market gyms and tough elementary-school weight rooms.
The cardio chieftains at Snap Fitness will walk you through the multitiered system to help your meet your fitness goals. Get free instruction with the Basic 8 training program, a total-body, 30-minute workout plan, or catch up on your Icelandic telenovellas at the cardio TV theater. Snap also rewards members with prizes for regular workout visits, and the online meal plans helps clients temper out-of-control lycra-eating habits.
