"Get in shape" hovers near the top of many New Year's resolution lists, right next to "deal with raccoon infestation" and "figure out how raccoons get trapped in the TV." Stop watching so many TV shows starring raccoons with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 2.5-hour nutrition-and-fitness seminar, along with a book and audiobook, at Alessi Personal Fitness in East Amherst (a $97 value). Choose between sessions on Saturday, June 25 or Saturday, July 23.
Certified fitness trainer and author Dr. Derek Alessi helps his clients achieve lean, firm physiques with a pragmatic approach to training, nutrition, and lifestyle. Alessi's 2.5-hour seminar, conducted with the assistance of local gourmet guru Chef Steven Binks, teaches attendees how to prep healthy meals, shop effectively, and get a Buick LeSabre out of a ravine. Alessi provides practical help for both beginners hoping to successfully launch new fitness regimens and longtime weight watchers looking for improved results. With an emphasis on sustainable lifestyle changes instead of crash diets or misguided workout fads such as couch surfing, the seminar provides a foundation for long-lasting weight loss and overall vitality.
After the seminar, students will receive one-week access to the online Live It Fit System, as well as weekly exercise and meal plans, a wealth of healthy recipes, a copy of Alessi's Lose Fat Forever book, and an audio edition of The Promise. Seats are limited, and each session includes dedicated time for a Q&A session, during which attendees can ask Dr. Alessi questions about fitness or optimal Proust translations.
