Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get six Body by Jimmie Training Classes at Alter Ego Fitness (a $480 value).
Armed with 15 years of personal-training experience, dedicated fitness fiend Jimmie Jennings leads his students through rigorous individual and group training sessions to improve corporeal strength, stamina, and eating habits. The Body by Jimmie plan tailors one-on-one workouts to individual health ambitions, calling on gams to run sprints, arms to curl weights, and minds to solve a Rubik's cube while jogging in place. For a social sweating session, opt for a small-group gathering, which drills up to five pupils amid encouraging flurries of high-fives. Jimmie also divulges salubrious tidbits for improving eating habits and limiting student intake of motor oil.
Alter Ego Fitness
Alter Ego Fitness's facilities are designed to make exercise efficient and engaging. User-friendly gear from manufacturers such as Precor and MedX lines weight-training and cardio rooms. To keep minds engaged during workouts, Precor cardio machines are equipped with headphone outlets hooked up to flat-screen televisions.
The facility houses two separate free-weight rooms, each designed with a different ambience to invigorate iron pumpers and barbells tired of floating up and down all day. The ladies-only weight and cardio room lets women sweat and socialize in peace, while the saunas offer a place for all gym-goers to unwind their newly acquired physiques. A spacious group-fitness room hosts Pilates, yoga, Zumba, and Tai Chi classes set to upbeat or tranquil music as the lesson dictates.
