Since the rise of the Internet, people have struggled to tear their now-useless phone books in half. Bulk up to succeed where others have failed with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a six-course On Ramp course and two weeks of unlimited access to Albany CrossFit (up to a $150 value), valid at either the Albany or Clifton Park locations. Groupon holders must schedule their On Ramp course within three months of the feature date and the deal is good for 30 days from the first On Ramp class.
The energetic trainers at Albany CrossFit burnish bodies with the same sweat-manufacturing workout routines used by police academies and tactical operations teams, focusing on principal strength and conditioning. Before hefting a single kettlebell, students must first complete a six-course On Ramp program, which teaches groups of four to eight newcomers the recurrent movements of the CrossFit curriculum, including deadlifts, squats, and challenging your reflection to a flexing contest. In addition to mastering techniques in the physical realm, pupils will also glean healthful tips from lectures on nutrition and mobility. The entire On Ramp course must be completed in two weeks, including all relevant at-home assignments, which may cover postworkout recovery and how to turn your neighbor's house into your personal gym.
After completing the On Ramp program, guests can attend two full weeks of CrossFit classes. Each one-hour workout of the day blasts bods with oft-changing movements performed at maximum intensity––similar to doing jumping jacks while reading the climax of a John Grisham novel.
