Any waking bear must shake off the hibernative coat of winter with a dedicated regimen of bicep curls and cardiovascular honeycombing. Today's Groupon revitalizes a body with a personal training session, one month of unlimited fitness classes, and a customized routine for home exercise (each an $85 value) for $40 at ADAPT Training in Beaverton. A variety of heart-pumping classes along with individualized coaching turns yesterday's putty into tomorrow's firm musculature or pleasant Silly Putty.
ADAPT's spacious facility gives both seasoned and inexperienced fitness devotees the resources they need to get in touch with their health. During a personal training session, a professional trainer's experienced eye (his left eye) looks over your physical needs and creates a program packed with diverse customized exercises. A session endows students with knowledge of what it takes to achieve a rewarding workout before they take advantage of a month of unlimited classes. Strength-building sessions and flexibility courses mold calorie burning and muscle molding into healthful routines. Classes are held Monday through Saturday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Today's Groupon also includes a home workout routine with exercises specially selected for you by a trainer. You'll leave knowing how to shed pounds on nights when CSI is a re-run, the dog refuses to go on a walk, or there's no more yarn left for knitting sock puppets of former vice presidents. Fitness opportunities present themselves left, right, and center to annihilate winter excuses and embrace the defrosted circulation of spring. An appointment is required.
ADAPT Training went five for five with six fitness fanatics on Citysearch:
A star offensive lineman for Stanford University, 315-pound Brian Cassidy—his team up by five touchdowns against Washington State—set up for a routine extra point. Suddenly, a player leaped across the line of scrimmage and landed on Brian’s knee, tearing both his ACL and MCL in one life-changing second. His hopes for an NFL career nearly dashed, Brian moved on to his rehabilitation, but instead he suffered one more debilitation: a herniated disc. Nearly paralyzed, Brian had a breakthrough: as a muscular-training specialist pointed out, his body wasn’t aligned properly, making his recovery nearly impossible. Brian started training with a new focus, emerging months later faster and stronger than ever before—and dedicated to a new multilevel training philosophy that he continues to develop at ADAPT Training.
There, trainers help clients recover from their injuries or simply enhance their personal fitness level by ensuring that four key structural joints—the shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles—work in balance with one another and maintain their proper alignment, thereby strengthening the durability and gas mileage of the entire body. Clients participate in everything from classes focused on physical therapy to strength-training regimens to boot camps, all personalized to meet the individual needs of each student.
