With thumb-wrestling season just around the corner, everyone is focused on getting those taut, sexy thumbs all the Hollywood stars have. Today’s Groupon makes sure you don't neglect the rest of your body: for $35, new customers get three 30-minute personal-training sessions (a $113 value) at Fitness Edge. This Groupon can be used at any of the three Fitness Edge locations in Lakewood, Rocky River, and Avon.
There are numerous reasons to try personal-training sessions. Self-motivating is difficult, and it's hard to go solo when getting over halrobaphobia (the fear of exercise equipment and warm metal). Fitness Edge's certified trainers will keep you motivated with one-on-one attention and shouted encouragement. Challenge your body to a duel with constantly changing, multifaceted workouts that push you to your physical peak, and get your heart pumping faster than well water on a sacrificial pyre of chanting Furbies.
Whether you want to shed a few pounds, add toner to your muscle cartridge, or simply study personal trainers in their native habitat, today's deal gives you the means to give your goal a what-for. Call ahead to schedule a session at your preferred location.

Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
Mat maven Colette Barry's signature Barry Method of instruction draws from her years of kinesthetic expertise, combining the lengthening sequences of yoga with the strengthening exercises of Pilates. A robust schedule grants Colette and her staff of instructors ample opportunities to guide students through the muscle-reforming routine throughout the week. Precise movements and isometric conditioning target restricting back and shoulder pains by realigning wayward postures while forging a mind-body connection that is more focused than a medical laser studying for the MCAT. By enlisting the gravity-subduing technology of Total Trainer apparatuses, Barry Method sessions ensure a physique-toning workout for students regardless of their physical ability or levitation skills.
Got Gut boot-camp participants generally flock to the fitness grounds two to five days a week, but with today's Groupon secured under your terrycloth headband, you can attend as many of the 60-minute sweat fests as you please. During your four-week program, you'll receive unlimited physical and nutritional guidance from Debi's highly trained instructors and get to take your body to its buffing limits during increasingly challenging cardio and strength-training workouts. The group sessions promote a team mentality, so not only will you feed off the supportive vibes of your peers, but you will also likely walk away from the experience with a new secret bicepshake.
The staff at Herbal Therapy Body Wraps envelops clients in bandage-like wraps saturated with a cocktail of herbs to rejuvenate the skin and slim the silhouette. The expertly selected cadre of herbs works to drain the body of extra fluids and toxins and to soften weathered hides. Wraps infuse skin with goodies for 60 minutes during each session, aiming to contour while providing immediate inch loss, relaxing the body, and easing joint pain. The treatment may also help reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite, ensuring a smooth canvas onto which tattoo maps to secret gumdrop lairs. Wrapees can wear underwear, a bathing suit, or a fashion-forward grocery bag under herbaceous layers. Herbal Therapy recommends multiple wraps to achieve optimal results.
G&G Fitness caters to both bodybuilding buffs and amateurs wishing to enhance their earthly edifices at home with a range of premium equipment, including such notable brands as Life Fitness, Octane Fitness, and Precor. As trained physique formers, G&G's friendly staff members easily hunt and lasso the ideal muscle-molding or heart-strengthening apparatus for each individual customer's specific needs. Avoid outdoor biking's headaches of potholes and projectile burritos by staying indoors on an immobile Vision Fitness E1500 ($499), an upright exercise bike that offers a comfort arc seat, contact heart-rate sensors, and easy-to-adjust pedal straps. Elliptical machines ($799+) and treadmills ($1,495+), offer great ways to calibrate cardiovascular chronometers any time of the day or night. For muscle-sculpting, home-gym systems (starting at $1,299)—which combine benches, pulley systems, and weight stacks in one space-saving package—give exercisers a way to bolster biceps and strengthen solar plexuses without having to traverse crowded gym floors.
