Working out is No. 3 on the list of most popular daily activities in America, behind not working out and teaching dogs to swear. Spend your time wisely with today's Groupon to Wolcott Athletic and Learning Center. Choose between the following options:
• For $12, you get three Zumba classes (a $24 value).
• For $15, you get 60 minutes in the batting cages (a $30 value).
Wolcott Athletic and Learning Center fosters recreational fitness with an all-purpose facility and energetic activities, including music lessons, dance classes, and batting cages. Shimmy away calories in the Center's fast-paced 50-minute Zumba classes (an $8 value/class), as around 20 participants engage their muscles in syncopated aerobics and pulse-pounding Latin choreography.
Or, aspiring long-ball hitters can arm themselves with a helmet and bat and take an hour to hone their check swings and triumphant foul-ball pose in the indoor batting cages. The virtual pitchers take aim with custom speed settings, allowing batters to pound fastballs at speeds from 40 miles per hour and above, twice as fast as the swiftest hot-dog racing cart.
Strike Zone II
The Strike Zone II gives parents a positive place to bring their whole brood for athletic, academic, or musical enrichment under one polymathic roof. While one child raises a joyful tune during music lessons, another can enlist a tutor for help with memorizing multiplication tables or searching the Gettysburg Address for hidden emoticons. For the athletically inclined, Mark Stevens—formerly a coach at the Division I, II, and III collegiate levels—heads up a staff of baseball and softball instructors who help cadets hone hitting, pitching, and fielding prowess during four-packs of lessons. The onsite batting cage lets hitters practice churning out frozen ropes within a safely confined space, and the practice pitching mound offers young hurlers a place to practice building moats for protection against charging batters.
