While feeling the burn during a workout is generally a good sign, feeling the burn while sitting on the sofa means your sofa is in the fireplace. Engage in controlled, constructive body burning with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-month membership, plus a one-hour personal-training session at Susan Marlowe Fitness in Scarsdale (a $219 value).
Since 1973, Susan Marlowe Fitness's modern muscle-managing facilities have echoed with the eclectic sounds of a fitness program designed by and for women. Members have access to top-of-the-line equipment from Technogym, situated amidst banks of windows that afford panoramic views of the outdoors and Godzilla-free sunsets. Group classes offer a lively, communal take on calorie-crunching, with choices ranging from Zumba—an hour of Latin rhythm–inspired movements—to a pound-pummeling fitness boot camp designed to tackle problem areas specific to the female form. Members can also opt for one of several styles of yoga held in a dedicated studio, as well as a unique iso-towel class that leverages the body's own weight for a natural, toning workout, not unlike wrestling with one's evil twin. Check out the winter class schedule here.
Also included with this Groupon is a 60-minute personal-training session, which lends toning trainees the big-picture experience, along with the nutritional expertise of one of Susan Marlowe's certified trainers (a $150 value). Guiding the client through personally catered exercises, the talented muscle manipulators will go one-on-one with their pumpin' progeny, putting them on the path to greater results, and forming a concrete fitness plan for the future. In addition, month-long members can avail themselves of the gym's modern club amenities such as a massage chair, swedish sauna, and invisible forehead moppers. The facilities also include a number of eco-friendly touches, including energy-efficient lights and machinery, as well as the use of sustainable cleaning products.
