To achieve your New Year's resolution of eating three gooey butter cakes in a single sitting, thereby becoming King of St. Louis in accordance with the prophecy, it might be prudent to get in decent shape first. Today's deal gets new members 20 day passes to The Heights Community Center for $20 (a value of up to $121). Simply bring your Groupon to the Heights within the next two months and exchange it for a keycard with 20 day passes on it. You may then use them whenever you like. Parking is free.
Each day pass grants you full access to the Heights' 73,000 square feet of locker rooms, gymnasia, indoor pool and water park, and fitness equipment. That's a lot of ground to cover, so a trained staff member will give you a full orientation on your first visit and show you where everything is located. They'll also show you how to use any machines you find to be particularly inscrutable. The equipment is new and state-of-the-art, so you won't have to design your regimen around leaky medicine balls and mule-powered 19th century "perambulating mills." The Heights purchased its cardio equipment brand-new in 2010 and is the first facility to get its True treadmills straight from the factory, as opposed to getting them from the many discount treadmill shelters out by the brickworks. You'll also find a full free-weight area packed with top-of-the-line dumbbells, bar bells, cathedral bells, and plate weights. Fifteen new flat-screen TVs will keep you entertained until you're ready to cool down and relax in the Heights' sauna, steam room, or lazy river. Personal trainers are available, though they are not included in this Groupon.
Along with yourself, you can buy one Groupon for each of your friends, ensuring that everyone you care about will be in top shape for this year's zombie-evading season.

The Heights Community Center
The Heights Community Center brings the neighborhood's athletes and exercise hobbyists together in its 73,000-square-foot health and wellness complex. Guests jog and climb aboard the cardio room's Precor and Life Fitness treadmills, stair climbers, and elliptical trainers. Nearby, patrons can buff up with the help of free weights or cable machines. Their state-of-the-art aquatic center fuses the athletic benefits swimming laps in a pool with the fun of trying to swim up a two-story waterslide. To infuse fun into workouts, the youth fitness center throws youngsters into a healthy lifestyle with Wii video games, Dance Dance Revolution, and strength-training equipment designed specifically for adolescents. Onsite childcare safeguards tots too young for the youth center, and a full-service library exercises minds by fastening each book with a Rubik's Cube lock.
