Getting in shape, much like speed-reading Russian literature, requires concentration and the strength to forge ahead through painful, protracted inner monologues. Forge ahead toward fitness with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get 12 instructional yoga DVDs (a $109 value), plus shipping and handling (a $14.95 value) from APY60 (a $123.95 total value).
Official yoga trainer for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and APY60 developer Kurt Johnsen guides students through 60 days of power-yoga classes performed at home. Each session begins with a warm-up and transitions into a continually tweaked workout that challenges muscle memory daily with varying moves and shouted algebra problems. Exercisers can keep up by searching out the remote control's slow-motion button or using the APY60 endurance-class DVD that also helps spur metabolism. In addition, the DVD set graces doorsteps alongside a nutrition guide with recipes and a step-by-step fitness chart, so participants can monitor improvements and log workout results with appropriate emoticons.
