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 deal gives new customers all the benefits of the gym with the modern benefit of clothing: for $30, you get membership through the end of the year, a waived enrollment fee, three months of unlimited tanning, three free group fitness classes, and free equipment orientation at Snap Fitness's four Grand Rapids locations (a combined $243.85 value).
Snap Fitness is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Because this deal includes an all-access key card, you don't have to let the strictures of "time" dictate when you can avail yourself of cardio and strength benefits. Arrive at Snap super late and pretend you're working out in an Edward Hopper painting, or pound the treadmill at 5 a.m. and get pumped for 6 a.m. Even if you exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere will provide a refreshing change of pace from any meat-market gym or tough elementary schoolyard you've experienced. Group fitness classes such as spinning, Zumba, and yoga apply the historically effective tactics of mob action to frighten flab into shaping up, while unlimited tanning gives even non-statues the opportunity to turn a healthy bronze without subjecting themselves to the sun's judgmental glare.
Snap Fitness's clean, spacious facilities are outfitted with top-of-the-line equipment to help make your clothes more spacious. With an abundance of high-end cardio machines, free weights, and strength-training stations, you don't have to wait to weight around, drying off before breaking a sweat again.
New members only. Tanning available only at location of activation. Key cards require $35 refundable deposit.
Five Google Mappers give Snap Fitness's East Beltline location an average of 4.5 stars:
- I love the crowd over here and I've met some great friends. I am actually paying less than I did at my last gym because they had a bunch of hidden fees. I would HIGHLY recommend SNAP Fitness. – Allison
- This gym is the best value you will ever find - hands down. It is open 24/7, has all brand new equipment (and a ton of variety) and there aren't ever any lines. – almascots876
Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable visitors to fortify their physical well-being with a cornucopia of advanced fitness equipment and certified personal trainers. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let The Man or one of his many secretaries tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength-training gear or top-of-the-line cardio machines, which feature televisions and other media diversions. A friendly, unintimidating atmosphere provides a refreshing change of pace from aloof gym employees and ear-splitting pump-up jams.
