Going to the gym, like going to the dentist, is beneficial to one's health, may occasionally involve drills, and feels incredible under the influence of nitrous oxide. Catch a whiff of wellness with today's Groupon to World Health. Choose between two tummy-toning options at one of eight area locations—Edgemont, North Hill, Fifth Avenue Place, Bay, Richmond, MacLeod, Sunridge, or Midnapore:
- For $19, new clients get a one-month membership at one of eight World Health locations plus two personal-training sessions (a $240 total value).
- For $25, current members and returning clients get a $50 gift card.
The Southport location is not available with this Groupon. The $50 gift card available to current members is not valid towards membership dues.
World Health is an adult-oriented private health club whose staff stays on top of the latest trends in health and fitness through continuing education. With today’s deal, new clients can strip-mine their wealth of knowledge during two one-on-one personal training sessions with a fitness professional, and sweat it out en masse during a group fitness class, such as the fiery, Latin-dance-inspired Zumba. See each location's class schedule by selecting a Calgary location in the drop-down menu here.
Depending on the amenities available at members' chosen locations, they may expunge unwanted calories solo on treadmills or circuit-training weight machines, retiring afterwards to sip succulent nectars through their bills at a juice bar or purge plugged pores in a steam room. Returning clients may use their gift cards for cups of ice-cold juice, personal training, or for registered programs that build higher-level skills over several progressively harder sessions, among other options.
Though individual locations have yet to receive many reviews, World Health boasts more than 1,000 Facebook fans nationwide.
Founded 29 years ago with a single, small club, World Health expanded its healthy presence across Calgary with today's 7 locations. Ultramodern equipment and friendly staffers fill each hub, supplementing a variety of group fitness classes and personal-training sessions with flexible membership options. In Revs and Revs Plus classes, bike-mounted students pedal through aerobic drills before slow-downs allow for safe speed-bump crossing and heart-rate recovery. Fight-inspired Kick classes coalesce self-defence moves from karate, boxing, and kickboxing; Breathe’s gentle combination of yoga, Pilates, and tai chi beckons internal peace with flexibility and balance exercises. For a solo workout session, personable trainers customize sessions that chase each individual’s fitness goals. With the help of a personal trainer, exercisers often note a greater sense of motivation and accountability, improved fitness and nutritional knowledge, and biceps that literally take the shape of pistols.
