UFC Gym?s fight-centric gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, UFC Gym sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym?s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.

Your chances of being kidnapped exponentially increase with your ever-increasing awesomeness. You can only fend off foes with your secret potion of hair gels and toothpicks for so long; real strength and self-defense come from serious training. Today's Groupon punches super-villains right between their lasery, well-intentioned eyes: for $19, you get three intense fitness or Krav Maga classes at KMDC Training Center (a $60 value). This deal gets you a hour of extra class and one more class option than the normal Krav Maga introductory special, plus it’s open to all ability levels. Take three one-hour Monkey Bar Gym/Strike classes or Krav Maga classes within a two-week period to slim down, buff up, and build your confidence so you can build that deck. Note: All three classes must be of the same type.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.
