Going to the gym is a safe way to work out, unlike doing streetlight pull-ups or fighting public-disturbance charges. Lift lawfully with today's Groupon to Spare Time Clubs, valid at your choice of eight locations in the Sacramento area; this deal is not valid at the Diamond Hills Sports Club or Spare Time Indoor Tennis Center. Choose between the following options for each location:
- For $35, you get a one-month individual membership (up to a $301 value, including a $200 initiation fee).
- For $59, you get a one-month family membership (up to a $473 value, including a $300 initiation fee).
Spare Time Clubs help members bulk up their workout routines with tennis courts, family-friendly swimming pools, ultra-modern fitness centers, and a hefty lineup of group exercise classes. Like a Spice Girl, each club sports a unique personality and list of perks, letting guests customize their fitness experience based on where they live and the types of activities they enjoy. More than a dozen tennis courts line nearly every location, inviting visitors to practice volleys and wallop horseflies without fear of judgment. A family pool stakes out space for swimming lessons, and a multi-lane lap pool teems with flutter kicks. Led by nationally certified instructors, group exercise classes such as yoga, kickboxing, and cycling help members sculpt muscles and flambé calories into cherries jubilee. In addition to socializing at group classes, guests can forge new friendships at drop-in volleyball games and by attending club-organized outings such as ski trips and wine tastings. Treadmills and elliptical trainers lure exercisers to the fitness center, where they can lift weights solo or jog with an imaginary friend.
For nearly four decades, Spare Time Clubs have distinguished themselves as meccas for busy families and neglected muscles in need of affection. Parents can relax in a sauna as youngsters burn off steam at play centers stocked with art supplies, video games, and a staff trained in the art of childcare. The clubs encourage families to meet their fresh-air quota as well, attracting picnic baskets to their grassy knolls and clans of competitive hopscotchers to their outdoor playgrounds. As an added bonus, guests who choose to continue their membership after their Groupon experience will score a waiver on the club's initiation fee ($200 individual discount or $300 family discount applies for 30 days after the last day of the one-month membership).
Though Spare Time Clubs sometimes feature discounted prices online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Spare Time Clubs
Since 1972, Spare Time Clubs has evolved into a 10-club, full-service family sports club company that includes programs for both adults and children. Each location varies in size—some boasting multiple complexes—and houses amenities such as lighted tennis courts, pools, kids’ play areas, and fitness centers. At the Diamond Hills and El Dorado Hills locations, members can shine up in the onsite European spas, and the jewel of the Gold River club is a lighted stadium court encircled by a 5,000 square-foot observation deck. In the event of inclement weather or courts being overrun by ball-chasing dogs, players can schedule time at the dedicated indoor-tennis center, where eight fully sectioned-off, championship courts glow under the power of tournament-level lighting. World-class coaches develop kids’ court skills at the junior tennis academy, students of which can practice with an unlimited number of sessions at any of Spare Time’s other clubs.
