What You'll Get
According to a recent scientific study on back pain, the main causes of most back pain are insufficient exercise and ambushes by scientists wielding crowbars. Strengthen and then soften your blind side with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 14-day all-access pass (a $280 value) and a 30-minute neck and shoulder massage (a $55 value) at The Sporting Club at The Bellevue, a three-time Best of Citysearch award-winner. Your 14 days of access are consecutive and will begin on the date you activate your Groupon.
The Sporting Club at The Bellevue is a sleek, sporty facility heavily muscled with strength and cardio equipment, an indoor running track, racquetball courts, a full-size NBA court, boxing facilities, and an indoor swimming pool. Unlike a membership card from the league of extraordinary whiskey-drinking ladies, your all-access pass will improve your health and equilibrium by granting you free reign to try everything the gym has to offer, including a wide range of group fitness classes. Whether it’s spinning, Pilates, yoga, or rowing, every musculature can find a class that suits their sinews and allows them to pocket a boost of energy for later.
Once you've wound your muscles to the point that they keep perfect Swiss time, you can unwind them as beautifully as a music-box melody with a 30-minute massage. One of the club's licensed massage therapists will focus on the body's tension-hoarding top floors with the Tension Tamer neck and shoulder massage. Afterward, you can soak in the club's soothing steam rooms and whirlpools before obliterating those very same H's, 2's, and O's in the sauna atmosphere of dry heat and dry British humor. Call ahead to schedule your massage; The Sporting Club at The Bellevue requests that customers arrive 15 minutes prior to appointment time.
Not valid for current members. Must be at least 18 years old. Cancellations require at least 24 hours of notice or the Groupon is forfeited.
