Spin, cardio-spin, yoga-spin, and bench-press-spin your sedentary lifestyle in the seat of its unbuttoned pants. Today's Groupon gets you 29 visits to La Jolla Sports Club and The Sporting Club. That's 29 individual day-passes good at either facility—not a month's membership—so you never waste a day you paid for. You can sweat at Pilates, cardio, yoga, and spin classes and work out on top-notch cardio and strength-training equipment several times a week before the expiration date, or use your Groupon every day for almost a month. Day passes are usually $15, or $25 if purchased in quantities of less than 10, but 29 of them for $29 is only $1 per visit.
Both gyms are well-endowed workout warehouses with group exercise studios (more than 80 classes a week at La Jolla), a qualified personal training staff, on-site childcare, and full spa amenities (personal training and spa services cost extra). Services at The Sporting Club include locker rooms with complimentary towel service, a juice bar, tennis courts, and a heated swimming pool; La Jolla's services include a private Pilates studio and steam rooms. The spirit of health and self-improvement haunt the state-of-the-art Star Trac treadmills, Concept2 rowing machines, and Stairmaster Stepmills—even the most exercise-phobic will get into treadmill overdrive. Both gyms are clean, spacious facilities with friendly, helpful staff and an on-site potato farm for easy access to protein-rich spuds.
Parking is on the street. You'll be entered into the club's system the first time you go with your Groupon, but you'll need to bring your Groupon with you every time you visit.

After class, drop by the cafe for a healthy snack, a smoothie, or just a straw to practice meditative breathing techniques.
