Although human fitness originated by running long distances to avoid being eaten, it now dictates that we run in place in order to avoid eating. Survive with the fittest thanks to today's Groupon: for $129, you get a one-year program membership and eight Pilates classes at The Sports Club of Novi (a $317 value).
The Sports Club of Novi houses a phalanx of certified Pilates instructors and fitness aficionados that direct fitness seekers toward firmer muscles and general well-being in energizing exercise programs and classes. The wellness center encases a 130,000-square-foot natural fitness habitat, where go-getters are free to graze, fly solo, or form predatory collectives. Family Program Membership moguls get yearlong benefits, enabling them to frolic in the indoor pool during family swimming hours or practice backhands on the reserved tennis courts (for an additional $18 fee). Once thoroughly exhausted, members can unwind at the café, sipping coffee, perusing newspapers, and eating as much free WiFi as they want.
Clients can keep cores more solid than Fort Knox's doggy door with The Sports Club's Pilates classes. During an octet of stretch sessions, mat mavens coach students through resistance-based exercises that aim to boost balance and tone sinews. Complimentary babysitting lets muscle constructors with preschool tots in tow focus solely on getting in shape without having to worry about kids getting into trouble or incriminating tax records. Check the schedule for a list of class times.
Family Program Membership does not grant access to the adult fitness area, locker rooms, sauna, or summer swimming club.
