Exercise brings the whole body to life–your heart begins to race, your muscles begin to contract, and your brain begins to split into three exobrains. Nothing will ever be the same after you use this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $29 for a one-hour kettlebell crash course, plus a pair of wristbands (a $73 value)
- $22 for three drop-in group kettlebell classes (a $45 value)
- $39 for eight drop-in group kettlebell classes (a $99 value)
During the kettlebell crash course—which is typically private, but may include up to three students per class—an instructor provides an in-depth look at kettlebell workouts and demonstrates many of the exercises that can be performed using kettlebells. Afterward, students put their new knowledge to the test during a challenging workout. Groupon customers should call ahead to make an appointment for their crash course.
Beginner kettlebell classes take place on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. Kettlebell conditioning classes take place on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7 p.m., on Thursdays at 10 a.m., and on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. Previous experience with kettlebells is required for the conditioning classes. See the schedule.
Taken at face value, laid-back fitness is an oxymoron. But when distilled into the same philosophy, these three words can put a whole new spin on getting in shape. The brains behind this approach is founder Ryan McGowan, who uses his background in engineering to view fitness through a systematic lens. When designing programs, he and his team take into consideration ancillary factors—mood, surroundings, how strong gravity is that day—and always leave plenty of room for rest and healthy eating between bouts of intense training.
For Ryan, the road to Laid-back Fitness was one of trial and error. Years ago, he bulked up as a college football player; after an injury, he slimmed down and trained for triathlons. Wanting to find that happy medium, Ryan came up with what his facility's website calls a "casual approach to intense training." That approach shines through during sessions of personal training as well as group kettlebell classes, where participants swing, snatch, push, and press their way into better shape. Outside the Laid-back Fitness facility, Ryan also calls on his engineering experience to design and build gyms in the homes of clients.
