The official fighting system of the Israel Defense Forces, Krav Maga utilizes the body’s natural instincts and teaches simple movements in an encouraging, fast-paced environment, making this potent martial art easy to master for students of all physical sizes and skill levels. Introductory lessons inundate first-timers with a brief overview of Krav Maga styles and maneuvers, from simple defensive movements to soul-combusting staring techniques. This Groupon is also valid for Reaction's regular classes taught by black belts and other experienced practitioners on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings, plus several other classes held in the same Ironman Warehouse studio. These include an IronFit circuit-style fitness class, a speed and agility class, CardioMMA, and Strongman Training, workouts that will make you so ripped and ripply, the ocean will want to surf you, and you'll be able to clear your yard of stray boulders and easily uproot pesky dandelions.

When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
