Since the rise of the Internet, people have struggled to tear their now-useless phone books in half. Bulk up to succeed where others have failed with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a one-month gym membership (a $90 value) and a one-on-one nutritional consultation (a $99 value) at The Punta Gorda Club (a $189 total value).
The Punta Gorda Club unleashes muscular potential with an on-site nutritionist, a well-equipped gym, six clay tennis courts, and more than 80 group fitness classes each week. During a one-on-one nutrition consultation and dietary analysis (a $99 value), the club's food guru will discuss each client's eating habits, then draft a written meal plan that outlines what flavors of Twinkies they're allowed to eat. Additionally, an unlimited one-month membership (a $90 value, including enrollment fee) lets patrons loose to toughen tendons on the gym's playground of cardio machines, free weights, and step-aerobics teeter-totters. Members can also choose from more than 11 types of group fitness classes such as yoga, spinning, and Pilates, to tone their tummies in tandem or swat serves on six clay tennis courts.
After the workout, shower in the squeaky-clean locker rooms or slurp down a shake at the on-site Smoothie King and café. Tots tired of being used as weight training by endorphin-fueled caretakers can play in the on-site child care, available for an additional fee ($15/month; $7/day) or an infinite number of marbles.
