Exercising, like swimming across the Atlantic, seems fun and challenging to do alone but is best performed under the motivational influence of someone other than a hungry shark. Shape up your form without a trail of fins with today's Groupon: for $35, you get three cycling classes at The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers (a $96 value). All three classes must be completed by January 31, 2011. This Groupon is not valid toward private instruction or triathlon-training classes.
The Sports Center's brand-new cycle studio offers amazing views of the Hudson River and its sea nymphs, with floor-to-ceiling windows casting natural light on the room's 60" televisions, 30 Keiser bikes, and a heart-rate monitoring system. The cycling schedule provides 26 classes per week, with each class 45 to 60 minutes in length. The cycling classes are built upon an intense workout that burns calories and tones the lower body. Instructors guide students through a range of cadences, climbs, kicks, sprints, imaginary dog chases, and a final cool-down.
Once the class has reached an appropriate level of general sweatiness, you're free to utilize the amenities of the club's locker rooms, including a sauna, steam room, and a 25-yard, six-lane pool (free locker use if you bring your own lock). Go online to complete an activation form and book a class for two-wheeled body bettering.
- Chelsea Sports Club has unbelievable diversity in terms of its work-out offerings. If you can't find something physical you like to do here, then you should just give up altogether. – 26171, Citysearch
