Country clubs combine the rewards of a healthy lifestyle with the comforts of luxury living, much like eating a plate of diamond-encrusted vegetables or bench-pressing a velvet-clad Robin Leach. Pamper your body the way it deserves with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-month silver membership (a $225 value), plus one hour of open tennis-court time (a $120 value), at The Club of Riverdale (a $345 total value).
The Club of Riverdale welcomes members to soothe and strengthen their weary soul-sacks by offering them access to a top-notch fitness center, group exercise classes, and resort-like amenities. Pool water laps gently at determined swimmers as hungry hoops devour basketballs in the nearby gymnasium, and steamy saunas help bodies sweat out toxins while deepening their natural green hue. Ascend to the peak of firmness and flexibility with the three mountain philosophies of Hatha yoga or sharpen sweet teeth in the Candy Man workout, a full-body calorie buster ideal for countering a brownie binge or a week-long vacation to Candy Land. Tennis balls hurtle to and fro across multiple courts, raising rackets and honing competitive edges over an hour of free court use, and after exercise, pampering hands cleanse bodies and pores with a full suite of spa services available for an additional fee.
Throughout the building, warm wood paneling and natural paint tones envelop members in comforting neutrality. Flat-screen TVs occupy restless eyes while working out on the fitness center's machines or when retiring to the lounge and café for a self-congratulatory latte. Locker rooms cater to lingering needs with full towel service and European showers, which differ from American showers in their ability to speak several languages.
The Club of Riverdale
Sometimes more is actually more. This is certainly true at The Club of Riverdale, where a 110,000 square feet complex houses an eclectic array of amenities, from six indoor tennis courts to a 25-meter Olympic pool to a spa that is home to six styles of massage. Out of all the sports available at the multi-sport facility, the coaching team specializes in tennis and golf. Racket-wielders can perfect their serves and back-hands in private lessons, beginners’ clinics, and group drills. Meanwhile, golfers train during camps, jaunts in the golf simulator, and with K-vest three-dimensional analysis, which helps clients optimize their swings and stop bribing their ball before each game. An array of workout classes rounds out the gym’s offerings, covering modalities such as Pilates, yoga, and tai-chi.
