Before he became a certified personal trainer in 2008, Daniel Cone served in the US Army for two years in an infantry division that specializes in parachute operations. Today, he uses his military training to lead boot-camp classes and personal-fitness programs at Xtreme Fitness. The indoor and outdoor boot-camp classes incorporate weight training and a range of exercises such as lunges, jumping jacks, and shoulder dips. Daniel or another certified instructor performs individual body adjustments throughout the class and modifies exercises in order to accommodate all fitness levels. Xtreme Fitness enhances personal-fitness programs with cross training, fitness evaluations, and nutrition and lifestyle coaching. For a more relaxing workout, clients can take a morning yoga class or do pushups during a bubble bath.
Fitness Together corrals experienced personal trainers to craft individually tailored and effective workouts for health-seeking patrons of all ages. After assessing each client's safe starting point and unearthing their secret dreams of becoming human tow trucks, a trainer will piece together a workout routine that combines cardio and resistance training. Exercisers will then pump their hearts through interval- and speed-centric cardio sessions, aiming to amp the organ's endurance through intense, frequent bursts of activity. Meanwhile, resistance training combines cross-muscular techniques with alternating periods of intense and recuperative activity in an attempt to avoid workout plateaus and overtraining and confuse muscles with new moves occasionally instructed in riddle form by a sphinx in a sweatband. Buttressing these strenuous motions is an educational nutrition plan that provides clients with the accountability necessary to change eating habits for good. Though not available with this Groupon, like-minded fitness seekers can also enroll in small group training.

In 105 degree heat, participants stretch muscles, stimulate blood flow, and strive for a meditative mental state.
Carrie Rezabek Dorr dedicated the first years of her life to professionally dancing and choreographing at events across the country.

Her signature barre workouts allow students to steady themselves on a ballet barre while performing invigorating sequences of isometric exercises, which tone muscles throughout the legs, core, and arms. These sequences alternate between strength-building exercises and deep, restorative stretches, taking care to avoid unnecessary joint stress by eschewing any bouncing, jumping, or belly flopping. Although instructors may play uplifting music throughout each class, the workouts typically require a yoga-like focus as students constantly monitor and adjust their form and technique.
