What You'll Get
Exercise would be a doubly efficient venture if people could split into two halves and have both body sections burn calories simultaneously by riding a tandem bike. Today's Groupon to the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington makes the most of feasible workouts and fitness activities: for $49, you get a one-month adult or family membership, choice of one personal-training session or one private tennis lesson, and a $25 credit toward programs of your choice (up to a $179 total value). Choose to redeem your membership sessions at the National Capital, Alexandria, Arlington, Reston, Bethesda, Potomac Overlook, Arlington Tennis and Squash Center or Silver Spring locations.
The YMCA of Metropolitan Washington has been serving families and family-free individuals for more than 150 years. Today's deal gives you one month of individual (an $83 value) or family membership (good for two adults and any children under the age of 21 residing in the same household, normally $104) to this venerated institution and its numerous locations, which have numerous amenities, including fitness equipment and indoor and outdoor pools (pool availability varies by location). You also get the choice of one personal-training session with a certified trainer to help jump start a stymied fitness routine or improve a preexisting one ($75 value). Personal training can even incorporate popular elements, such as Zumba, cycling, belly dance, kickboxing, playing catch with computer monitors, and more. If you prefer squeaky-shoe sports, you may instead choose one private tennis lesson, available at the Bethesda/Chevy Chase location, Silver Spring location or the YMCA Arlington Tennis and Squash Center ($75 value).
The $25 credit can be used toward the cost of the YMCA's numerous adult and children's programs. The credit can also go toward mind-and-body wellness classes, such as yoga, Pilates, and meditation, to improve soul and soul sack alike. Program availability varies by location, and $25 will likely not cover the entire cost. Whatever your fitness needs, this membership to the YMCA will help you close in on them. If you like having excuses, you might prefer Nevertime Fitness, which only opens its single Barrow, Alaska, location during solar eclipses.
The National Capital YMCA location on Rhode Island Avenue gets a 3-star average from Yelpers, and the Monroe Avenue location in Alexandria gets a 3.5-star rating from three Yelpers. Lilaguide reviewers give the Sunset Hills Road location in Reston a four-star average.
