Although secret societies have terrific members-only benefits, their gorilla-centric initiation rites are often illegal. Make a legal solemn fitness vow with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one month of unlimited yoga classes, full gym-facility access, and a one-hour massage at WellStar Health Place (a $120 value).
Hospital-based WellStar Health Place's certified staff aids clients in their quests toward fitness and health, earning them a place on Atlanta Business Chronicle's list of top-10 fitness centers. A bevy of exercise classes offer unlimited opportunities for the yogically-minded. Students can try the schedule's Yoga I class to master basic postures and poses and stretch through the Power Yoga class, which fuses mental focus with core strength and flexibility for a fast-paced, challenging workout. Other class options include aerobics, Zumba, kickboxing, tai chi, and aerobic knitting.
After class, get-fitters saunter confidently into the gym and snap towels in silent effrontery at the fleet of cardio and weight machines soon to bend to an iron-lunged will. Indoor and outdoor running tracks, a heated pool, and a pair of racquetball courts allow bods to work up a sweat, following up with a session in the sauna or the whirlpool to rest tired limbs and purge pores of toxins and juicy gossip. A scheduled one-hour massage completes the wellness experience, unraveling tight shoulder knots and leaving muscles limber enough to sidle into neighborhood ATM slots.
WellStar Health Place
In addition to a full range of cardio machines and free weights, WellStar Health Place's expansive fitness center hosts a welcoming staff of degreed exercise specialists, health-care professionals, and licensed dietitians. As well as custom-tailoring personal-training sessions, the exercise specialists lead group classes for all ages, including yoga, cardio, and Zumba classes. A mere hop, skip, and Olympic-record lunge away from the indoor, heated swimming pool, licensed massage therapists indulge tired tendons with a combination of Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques. A nursery staff tends to children aged 6 weeks to 11 years while adults work out, and afterward, the friendly fruitsmiths at Planet Smoothie's in-house location dish out refreshing, high-protein beverages to replenish waning moisture levels.
