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 $30, you get a three-month membership (a $104.85 value), waived registration fee (a $49 value), and a fitness assessment (a $100 value) at Snap Fitness (a $253.85 total value). Click here for a list of the 41 valid locations. All members must purchase a 24-hour key-card to access the facilities at all hours ($20; not included in this Groupon).
Snap Fitness's gyms, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, enable fitness-focused members with any lifestyle to access high-quality strength and cardio equipment. Hop on a rowing machine at midnight to re-enact favorite scenes from The Old Man and the Sea, or pound the treadmill at 5 a.m. and get pumped to host a morning shock-jock radio show. During the included fitness assessment, a certified trainer measures strength, flexibility, and cardio condition to script a 60-day workout plan to help clients meet their fitness goals. Members can further sculpt muscles with the Basic 8 training program, a complimentary 30-minute workout session designed to safely and efficiently shape the whole physique without hiring chisel-wielding artisans.
Snap Fitness's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere provides a refreshing change of pace from meat-market gyms and tough elementary-school weight rooms. The fitness haven rewards members with prizes for regular workout visits, and online meal plans help clients temper unchecked lycra-eating habits.
Snap Fitness, bustling with cardio and strength-training gear, throws open the doors to its facilities 24/7. Before exercisers put sneakers to treadmills or lift their first weights, a personal trainer meets with them to talk about their fitness goals before suggesting personalized fitness plans based on clients' strength and cardio condition. With state-of-the-art equipment and personal cable tv's on all cardio machines, exercising at Snap Fitness is designed to be a pleasurable gym experience.
