What You'll Get
The word gymnasium derives from the Greek word 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 $29, you get three 30-minute personal-training sessions, a fitness assessment, and a week of gym access (a $75 value) at Snap Fitness in Newport News.
Snap Fitness, ranked as one of the top-50 franchises in the U.S. by Entrepreneur magazine, provides fledgling fitnessers with a sparkling, spacious facility outfitted with top-of-the-line equipment, including an abundance of high-end cardio machines, free weights, and strength-training gizmos. Fight flab and up muscle morale with three personal-training sessions and a 45-minute fitness assessment, all led by certified trainers who assess and give you guidance on how to address your fitness goals. Reap the benefits of personal attention as you and a personal trainer tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or simply unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines once and for all. Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere will provide a refreshing change of pace from any meat-market gym or tough elementary schoolyard.
