Since the rise of the Internet, people have struggled to tear their now-useless phone books in half. Bulk up to succeed where others have failed with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a five-class pass for any group fitness class at Southport Racquet Club(a $125 value).
At Southport Racquet Club, fitness enthusiasts find their streamlined form in more than 70 exercise classes held within a 20,000-square-foot workout facility. Students can eschew the standard regime of push-ups, jumping jacks, and bench-pressing old VHS exercise tapes for a stimulating Vinyasa yoga session to strengthen their core without monotony. Zumba classes help participants to unload spare tires through a flurry of dance steps set to Latin beats, and Spinning courses use stationary bikes to shed pent-up sweat droplets. Inspired by Tracy Anderson and Physique 57, Metamorphosis's calorie-burning exercises engage numerous body muscles to discard unwanted weight and swap third and fourth legs for helpful butterfly wings.
