Without gyms, people would resort to outdated fitness techniques, such as breaking rocks and pushing Model Ts up slight inclines. Celebrate contemporary fitness with this Groupon.
$39 for a One-Month Gym Membership ($100 Value)
After a private whistle-stop tour of the clubs amenities, new members get an unfettered, one-month pass to make merry on the facility's two professional-grade squash courts, splash about in the skin-calming saltwater pool, work out in the cardio theatre overlooking Rideau Canal and Parliament Hill, and make use of a sauna.
Westin Health and Squash Club
Nestled in downtown's historic ByWard Market, the Westin Health and Squash club cultivates an exclusive, intimate atmosphere in its 300-member gym. Stair-stepping and treadmilling toward a healthier lifestyle, patrons take in sweeping views of the Rideau Canal and Parliament Hill through the floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the cardio theatre. Duos scurry around the two professional squash courts, sending the thudding peal of squash balls through the nearby private personal training studio. After working off excess calories, members can take a soak in the hot tub, steal melatonin on the outdoor sundeck, or swim laps in the indoor saltwater pool, ideal for skin that is sensitive to chlorine or freshwater sharks.
