What You'll Get
While feeling the burn during a workout is generally a good sign, feeling the burn while sitting on the sofa means your sofa is in the fireplace. Engage in controlled, constructive body burning with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-month household membership and three coaching sessions at the Greater Kansas City YMCA (a $185 value), usable at all 19 Kansas City–area locations. You also get 100 Y Bucks if you activate your membership before February 28, 50 if you activate after.
For more than 150 years, the Greater Kansas City YMCA has hosted classes and community programs for the betterment of bodies and minds. Memberships allow full access to YMCA facilities for up to four adults and their dependents, including children, robot butlers, and housebroken iguanas. Make use of complimentary group- and water-fitness classes, or revel in discounted swimming lessons and kids’ sports programs. Members seeking extra help counteracting common obstacles to healthiness, such as eating candy for breakfast and dipping apple slices in delicious lard, can garner tips and techniques with the three wellness coaching sessions—consultations with a trained wellness coach to discuss goals, complete a balance assessment, and review medical history. Wellness coaching sessions can be combined with personal-training sessions to engage body and mind together, exactly like chess boxing or full-contact rubik's cubing.
The Y Bucks (a $100 or $50 value, depending on membership activation date) act like YMCA-specific coupons, allowing Groupon holders to take advantage of premium services such as tennis lessons, parties, and baseball games with diamond-and-silk bats.

About Greater Kansas City YMCA
A community presence in Kansas City since 1860, the Greater Kansas City YMCA forwards its mission of physical and social enrichment for men, women, and kids of all ages and backgrounds at its 18 locations. Each bustling outpost proffers members an embarrassment of fitness and entertainment riches, with everything from youth camps and after-school programs to group exercise classes, such as cycling, core training, and Pilates. Clubs and social organizations help members meet like-minded friends, and family activities strengthen bonds critically weakened by overzealous games of Monopoly.
