Today’s Groupon brings together like-minded ladies to increase fitness, morale, and results: for $30, you get a one-month membership (a $59 value), access to Zumba classes (up to a $24 value, based on two classes a week for four weeks), and a waived initiation fee (a $99 value) at Curves (up to a $203.84 total value, including HST). Choose from the following locations: Kerrisdale, Kitsilano, Lynn Valley Road, North Vancouver East, North Vancouver West, West Point Grey, and West Vancouver.

Members at Curves, a fitness centre designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that are designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Circuit coaches are always nearby to help manage participants’ machine manoeuvring and muscle making. For 30 minutes, limbering ladies move around a circuit that positions machines inward, encouraging casual conversation while worker-outers release up to 500 units of caloric energy into the fatigued atmosphere. The hydraulic machines use the exerciser’s own body weight to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean bodies perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like they can.

At select locations, Curves Circuit with Zumba combines machine workouts and Zumba Fitness, a Latin-inspired dance workout that helps women salsa, turn, and dip into slimmer figures. Both complete aerobic and strength-training workouts raise heart rates and burn calories while allowing women to meet new friends, arrange a girls’ night out between laboured breaths, or plan a wardrobe of revealing bikinis for their newly svelte doppelgänger action figures.

With today’s GrouponLive deal: for $56, you get two general-admission tickets (a $90 value, including HST) and two Fast Track passes (a $22.40 value, including HST) to the Outgames Closing Party at the Plaza of Nations on Saturday, July 30. Doors open at 11 a.m. The Fast Track pass can be redeemed in advance of the closing ceremonies and expires at the end of the Outgames.

Electro-pop royalty Ace of Base and Dragonette headline a daylong schedule of euphoric LGBTQ cultural events to close out this year’s seminal North America Outgames. The extravagant proceedings stage an upbeat farewell to a week of thrilling athletic competitions, human-rights workshops, and a full slate of concerts, dance performances, medal presentations, and interactive events. Carole Pope’s new-wave rock and DJ Rafael Calvente’s sonic landscapes team up to shred the airwaves into pieces of pulsing, speaker-shaped origami, and a nearby beer garden battles the long-held misperception that only flowers grow on plants.

Fast Track passes whisk guests to the front of lines for homegrown synth-pop trio Dragonette and Swedish superstars Ace of Base. The outdoor waterfront at the Plaza of Nations provides a pleasing backdrop to the vibrant spectacle, which ends with a poignant closing ceremony to recognize the triumphs of participating athletes and the LGBTQ community at large.

A foot reflexology massage hones in on weary feet to relieve tension and increase circulation, and a reflexology hand massage gently kneads overwrought hands and wrists to ensure dexterous sock-puppet performances. Finally, a Neti facial massage extends the stress-subduing treatment to the scalp, face, and neck, aiming to clear lymphatic pathways and minimize the appearance of facial puffiness and fine lines. Organic skincare products and hot, jasmine-scented towels further enhance the soothing experience, helping to vanquish aches accumulated over the years of backpacks, piggyback rides, and freeloading parrots.

In the schweineschnitzel ($18), crispy bread crumbs envelop an escalope of pork with a bear hug as a duo of sautéed potatoes and seasonal vegetables murmur to expectant tongues. Patrons can also try the zigeunerschnitzel ($20), featuring a traditional German noodle spaetzle, which tag-teams tummies along with pork schnitzel and a spicy gypsy sauce. The Vancouver Alpen Club serves local German, Swiss, and Austrian communities and their neutral Mindsweeper allies. A fully stocked bar runs alongside the wood-walled, -floored, and -chaired dining space of Deutsches Haus, whose depictions of the German countryside and clean white tablecloths give it an authentic German flair impossible to gain from claiming to be a descendant of Einstein after failing a math exam.

Today’s Groupon: for $17, you get admission to and 100 paintball rounds and equipment rental at Panther Paintball in Surrey (up to a $35 value).

At Panther Paintball, players spend full days firing technicolor ammo across 57 acres of varied terrain. Paint warriors head to 1 of 12 playing fields, where unlimited CO2 cartridges propel 100 rounds of custom-made Formula 13 paintballs out of a semiautomatic marker gun equipped with a loader and barrel-blocking safety device. Fire acrylic salvos from below ground at the trench field, or turn unsuspecting adversaries into pointillist masterpieces from towers at the city field. Dense forest canopies shadow combatants as they crawl next to dirt mounds and duck behind tires, and referees ensure fair play and the absence of performance-enhancing paint thinners. Panther Paintball outfits sharpshooters in all the necessary gear, including coveralls or camouflage jackets, goggles, and paint-by-number fedoras. Players can also purchase refreshments or more paintball rounds for an additional fee.

Though Panther Paintball sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Tofino
411 Campbell St. Tofino, British Columbia
(250) 725-2132

Enjoy nature sans arboreal attire with today’s Groupon for a tour from The Whale Centre in Tofino. Choose from three options:

• For $39, you get one admission to a 2.5-hour bear-watching tour (up to a $79 value, including a $5 fuel charge).
• For $42, you get one admission to a 2.5-hour whale-watching tour (up to an $84 value, including a $5 fuel charge).
• For $55, you get one admission to a 6-hour tour of Hot Springs Cove with whale watching (up to a $110 value, including a $5 fuel charge).

Kids three and younger are normally free, and tickets for students, seniors, and kids ages 4–12 are normally discounted.

Aboard eco-friendly, quiet-engine vessels, The Whale Centre’s seasoned seafarers lead wildlife watching tours around Clayoquot Sound. A 30-foot Boston Whaler ferries tourists past reefs and islands for a 2.5-hour whale-watching expedition, introducing them to a chance at seeing a host of fluke-flaunting cetaceans such as Pacific gray whales, humpback whales, and orcas. Each whale-watching tour outfits landlubbers with cruiser suits and woolen gloves and hats to prevent teeth from chattering to the beat of “Frosty the Snowman” while guides spew out educational commentaries about the wildlife in sight. Alternately, observe zany antics from the hull of the 24-foot M.V. Eco during the 2.5-hour bear-watching tour through tranquil inlets and channels. West Coast black bears scour low-tide shores for picnic baskets while guides identify individual teddies by name based on their behavior and monogrammed T-shirt.

Those opting for the 6-hour hot-springs tour cruise up the coast on a covered boat—the Hootla – Kootla —toward Hot Springs Cove in Maquinna Provincial Park, keeping their ocular orbs peeled for possible marine-life sightings. Once docked at the cove, explorers trek across a 2-kilometre cedar boardwalk through an old-growth rainforest, rewarding torsos tired of standing up to gravity’s bullying with a soak in the toasty waters of a thermal spring pool. The Whale Centre recommends that hot springers bring along lunch, water shoes, a bathing suit, a towel, and a $3 BC Parks fee to enter the park.
