Getting in shape, much like speed-reading Russian literature, requires concentration and the strength to forge ahead through painful, protracted inner monologues. Forge ahead toward fitness with today’s Groupon to WellWorx Sporting Clubs, with locations in East Memphis and downtown. Choose between the following options:
• For $29, you get two massages and a 30-day gym membership for one (a $299 value).
• For $79, you get two massages and a 30-day gym membership for a family of five (a $499 value).
WellWorx provides health enthusiasts access to an arsenal of cardio and strength-training equipment, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, fitness classes, and a staff of certified fitness professionals. Rows of treadmills and elliptical trainers lure solo sprinters into their calorie-burning grip with the promise of slimmer legs and a swifter heartbeat. Or, those who prefer to pump amongst peers can practice yoga, indoor cycling, and synchronized Irish step dancing in one of WellWorx’s group classes. The East Memphis location boasts indoor pools for laps, lessons, and aquatic feats of athleticism, while an outdoor pool welcomes recreational splashing under the supervision of lifeguards. Because WellWorx caters to fit families, an on-site Kids’ Korner invites tiny tikes to stop by in the morning and afternoon hours for age-appropriate exercise and an arts and crafts class, leaving their parent’s free to workout in peace or attend parents-only magic shows.
After escalating tickers and strengthening muscles, adults can head to their massage for 30 minutes of well-earned muscle kneading and stress-abating comfort. Membership at WellWorks also grants members access to swimming at the East Memphis location and tennis courts at both clubs, perfect for inciting friendly court-competition among siblings, or allowing individuals to prep for a future filled with gigantic flies.
