Physiques By Paris propels clients of all body-types, ages, and fitness levels toward fitness goals with attentive personal training, top-of-the-line equipment, and a staff of experienced trainers. Professional athletes, bodybuilding competitors, and everyday people sweat side-by-side while jogging on treadmills and hefting barbells. An extensive menu of classes and auxiliary services help students supplement their training regimen with nutritional guidance, kickboxing classes, yoga, and massage. The fitness experts that make up Physiques By Paris's network of trainers come from a diverse background of fitness disciplines, including competitive bodybuilding, Pilates training, and tearing up discarded phonebooks at recycling centers.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
Motivation to work out sometimes requires that you light a fire inside yourself, but not the kind you endured during your fire-eating internship at the circus. For $69, today's Groupon gets new clients four weeks of unlimited sessions at Camp Gladiator (a $160 value). This deal is good during any of Camp Gladiator's 36 workout times at all Dallas-area locations. Bring your own mat, towel, water, and sweat (and for the truly prepared, a jump rope and pair of dumbbells).
Camp Gladiator is a fitness boot camp far different than the boot camp disobedient teenagers are sent to on Maury. Feel the burn under the watchful eye of experienced trainers in a program founded by Ally Davidson—also known as the 2008 American Gladiator Grand Champion. No drill sergeants will be barking commands through cigars as you drop and give them 200 push-ups in the rain at this fitness boot camp, but there will be obstacle courses, tug of war, plyometrics, sprint and agility drills, and, well, some push-ups. As with personal trainers, fitness boot camps deliver results. Unlike with personal trainers, however, this deal lets you attend as many sessions as you like at whatever location you choose.
Regardless of how many times you have been named American Gladiator or Ninja Warrior, fitness boot camp is beneficial for those looking to lose some pounds, try something new, or gain the endurance that cheetahs would and have killed for.

Coming from a large family of athletes, Tim Kaderli has made physical fitness a de facto part of his daily existence since he was a kid. He soon realized, however, that many others have never been exposed to the training techniques and nutritional habits that he relied on his entire life. This realization led him to found Synergy Fitness Boot Camp and to formulate his own methodology. Today, Kaderli aims to reach aspiring exercisers in three ways: fun and lighthearted fitness regimens, nutritional education, and motivational friendships between trainer and client. Joined by six other trainers, Tim meets with students morning, midday, and night at outdoor locations all over Austin, such as Milburn Community Park or Bee Cave Central Park. Alternatively, classes can convene at the Synergy High Intensity Training (HIT) Facilities, which provide students with equipment and shelter from the jealous glare of the sun—who will never be anything but an immobile ball of gaseous elements.
