The best benefit of fitness training in a group setting is that instead of attacking you, wolves are more likely to join your pack. Today's Groupon gets you four weeks of boot-camp–style fitness in the park from A Better U Personal Training for $70 (a $180 value). Choose to attend any outdoor session scheduled April–September at either of two locations (Blueberry Hill Park in Sewickley or Cornell Stadium in Coraopolis). Sessions meet three times a week from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. and are for women only. The next available camp begins April 5 in Blueberry Hill Park and April 19 at Cornell Stadium.
The highly skilled trainers at A Better U lead these thrice-weekly sessions outdoors, come rain, shine, snow, or sliced-turkey storm. The motivational body-shaping gurus designed Fitness in the Park to provide a comfortable but challenging environment for women of all fitness levels. Because workouts are for women only, you don't need to worry about competing for attention or looking graceful; instead, you can proudly display your sweatiness like an obscure indie-rock-band button. High-intensity workouts are specially calibrated to squeeze the best results out of a concentrated time frame, and your instructor's well-practiced lungs will coo encouragements throughout. Train for an upcoming marathon, work off extra pounds, or simply enjoy the great outdoors while motivating the squirrel population. Participants should bring a towel for mopping sweat, a water bottle for hydrating parched internal organs, and 5-pound weights for giving sass-mouthed biceps a talking-to.
The mental and physical commitment required by Fitness in the Park sessions can kick-start a sluggish exercise routine. A Better U has been pumping hearts in the Pittsburgh area since 2001, providing personal-training services, focused weight-loss help, and health assessments to anyone with a yen for healthy living.
Check out what past clients are saying about A Better U Personal Training in these enthusiastic testimonials:
- Getting in shape is all about discipline and pushing yourself. A Better U personal training did just that, motivating me to start working out, discipline myself to stay on a routine schedule, and learning how to exercise and lift weights properly! – Joshua Dziabiak
- My biggest improvement by far has not been what I have lost, but instead, what I have gained. My stamina and energy levels have increased dramatically, as well as my over-all health and mindset. In the beginning, it was the accountability to my trainer that kept me going. Now, I look forward to my sessions as part of my daily routine! – Wendy Burlingame
A Better U Fitness in the Park
A Better U Fitness in the Park steps into the sometimes-confusing morass of personal fitness to meet clients where they live, whether physically with one-on-one personal-training sessions in area homes, or in the digital landscape with online personal training. The fitness fixer-uppers carry out an initial assessment that includes taking measurements and consulting with the client to pinpoint their health and body goals. After an analysis of existing workout equipment, trainers act as a personal shopper, making recommendations for potential upgrades, or bringing supplies from the Better U stockpiles. Practical nutrition advice always accompanies workouts, helping clients weed out temptations from pantries such as sodas, cookies, or live-in cake salesmen. For larger groups, personal trainers set up clinics for office workers and sports teams.
