Becoming fit is a lot like becoming a good driver: both require practice, loud music, and the perseverance to get up and keep going after you run into a lamppost. Accelerate toward fitness at high speeds with today's Groupon to the Turner Recreation Commission. Choose from the following options:
- For $39, you get a three-month membership to the aquatic center (up to a $90 value).
- For $49, you get a three-month membership to both the aquatic and fitness centers (up to a $140 value).
- For $19, you get a three-month membership to the fitness center (up to a $50 value).
The Turner Recreation Commission's expansive facilities feature ample opportunities for exercise in surf and on turf. A brightly lit indoor pool in the aquatic center boasts a graduated, beach-like entry that tricks feet into turning a toasty golden tan. Eight delineated lanes allow swimmers to torpedo through the water unencumbered by the flailing limbs of fellow pool-goers.
In the fitness center, land-loving muscle toners can take advantage of free weights and cable weight machines, and cardio equipment including treadmills, ellipticals, and bikes access heart muscles through pounding and pedaling feet. Trainers pump brains full of workout savvy in mandatory orientation sessions that explain each machine.
Other perks include free towels, disinfectant, and locker use (patrons should bring their own locks). Fitness center members can also join a free morning walking club that rewards antemeridian exercisers with the chance to win weekly prizes. Membership to both centers enables those nostalgic for the carefree lifestyles of our amphibian ancestors to travel seamlessly between land and water.
