WABA Members Get to Work It Out

“Membership with Benefits” is a blog series in which we highlight a different WABA member benefit each month. Last month we featured Tranquil Space and Flow Yoga, two Washington-area yoga studios. This month we’re featuring Results Gym, Embody Pure Fitness, and the YMCA.

With the start of a new year, many of us make fitness-related resolutions. Whether we hope to lose weight, eat better, or simply feel better in our bodies, the beginning of the year is a great time to start a new fitness routine. However, the chillier temperatures can sometimes dissuade us from wanting to hop on our bikes to achieve those goals. Luckily for members, some of WABA’s discount partners offer indoor exercise opportunities.

As a WABA member, you receive discounts at Results Gym, Embody Pure Fitness, and the YMCA.

De-Stress Your Way Through the Holidays With WABA Discount Partner Lunar Massage

“Membership with Benefits” is a blog series in which we highlight a different WABA member benefit each month. Last month we featured Czech Active Tours, a U.S.-European bike touring company. This month we’re featuring Lunar Massage, a D.C.-based massage studio.

Between the holiday shopping, the holiday parties, the holiday food, and the family holiday gatherings, are you mildly stressed out? Are your shoulders and neck feeling the resulting strain—or are you simply in need of a brief reprieve from the hubbub? We think so! Luckily, we have an appropriately relieving solution: a massage with WABA discount partner Lunar Massage!

Lunar Massage offers free membership to all WABA members (an initial $40 savings). And membership means awesome, discounted massages at Lunar’s three cozy D.C. locations! WABA members get lower prices on each massage, 20 percent off all massages in your birthday month, special members-only discount days, and a $10 referral credit for new local clients.

Whether you need some pain relief after a long, hard winter ride or crave straight-up stress reduction, Lunar Massage‘s membership is a great way to survive the holiday season. If it is a friend or coworker who is in need, give them the gift of massage: WABA members get 10 percent off all gift cards and gift certificate purchases.

Tour the European Countryside By Bike With WABA-Discount Partner, Czech Active Tours

“Membership with Benefits” is a blog series in which we highlight a different WABA member benefit each month. Last month we featured Bike Escapades, a US bike touring company. This month we’re traveling to Europe by bike, featuring Czech Active Tours, a US-European bike touring company.

What could be better than touring the European countryside by bike? Touring the European countryside by bike while someone else handles the logistics! Czech Active Tours, a small bike touring company, provides fully supported bike trips throughout central Europe. Your lodging, breakfasts and dinners, a tour guide, and luggage transport are all taken care of, allowing you to focus on the sites rather than on the planning.

Visit an olive oil mill in Spain. Walk the streets of Seville. Enjoy a boat tour of Budapest. Meander through Austrian vineyards. Tour Gothic, Baroque, and Renaissance cathedrals, churches, monasteries, and castles in the Czech Republic.  Czech Active Tours makes this all possible. And by bike!

Join Czech Active Tours on any of their bike tours and save $100 as a WABA member. For every member that takes advantage of the discount, they will donate an additional $50 to WABA. For the month of November only, Czech Active Tours is also offering a special discount to WABA members. For groups of four or more, they will offer an additional $50 off per person and $50 off bike rentals.

Now THAT’S a member benefit!
