Although feeling the burn during a workout is generally a good sign, feeling the burn while sitting on the sofa means your sofa is in the fireplace. Engage in controlled, constructive body burning with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a three-week Learn Tennis Fast program, along with full access to club facilities at the Tri-State Athletic Club (an $89 value).
The Tri-State Athletic Club's expansive facilities enhance physiques with indoor and outdoor tennis, a year-round pool, racquetball courts, and group exercise classes. Air-conditioned tennis courts protect players from the spray of disoriented crop dusters as they engage in the three-week Learn Tennis Fast program, which schools budding tennis players in the scoring and techniques of proper racquet swinging. USPTA-certified pros guide future court whisperers (adults or juniors ages 4–18) in six lessons, focusing on the serve, backhand, forehand, and forehead sweatband.
During off-court hours, temporary members can take advantage of Tri-State's facilities, featuring an indoor track, pool, and courts for basketball and volleyball. A variety of group exercise classes include spinning, martial arts, Zumba, and jogging while carrying a sack full of dictionaries.
Tri-State Athletic Club
Though it functions as an all-purpose gym, Tri-State Athletic Club is actually a community epicenter. When guests aren't running across its sports courts, they might be toasting each other in its halls at a wine tasting or holiday event. Family-friendly programming welcomes kids and adults alike to pool activities and tennis lessons, and personal trainers guide members, whose names they've committed to memory, through custom workouts. Meanwhile, instructors lead group classes such as Pilates, spin, and heated yoga in well-equipped studios. This supportive atmosphere imbues the club with positive vibes, which prompt strangers on neighboring treadmills to amicably concede the right of way.
