Roughly 85% of New Year's resolutions never make it past the hypothetical phase, according to an unfinished study that was abandoned in early February. Follow through on fitness goals with today's Groupon: for $29, you get an initial assessment and three personal-training sessions at BA Fitness in Norman (a $280 value).
At BA Fitness, certified trainers transform fading, feeble bodies into muscle-laden machines with rigorous workouts and personal accountability. Expert fitness friends weigh and measure bodies, create goals, and discuss past dumbbell-polishing experience to assess each participant's physical fitness and tailor a workout program for optimal fat loss. One-on-one sessions emphasize functional strength by employing cable-resistance machines, battle ropes, free weights, and positive reinforcement. Neither the mind nor the plate is a demilitarized zone in the war on fat with BA's thorough nutritional guidance and motivational measures, which instill in students a love of healthy grub and give them an accountability journal to fill with notes on their workouts or the crush they have on the bench press. Each training session takes place inside BA Fitness's lavish 2,100-square-foot private studio, whose blue-and-white-hued walls are lined with motivational sayings and exercise contraptions.
