Although body-exchange programs mean no one ever has to stay in one meat suit for long, returning yours in bad condition means you forfeit your deposit. Keep your constitution in returnable condition with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a one-month unlimited membership (a $160 value) for BBX, Inc.'s boogie box fitness program at one of nine Orange County locations. By mingling the benefits of aerobic and strength exercises, the boogie box agenda achieves a high level of fat burning and muscle sculpting in an upbeat atmosphere. During each 50-minute workout, participants be-bop to hip-hop while partaking in a choreographed routine of Latin dancing-kickboxing, overembellished dance moves, military drills, and muscle resistance. Each sweaty, endorphin-inducing session can cause up to 1,100 calories to run screaming from your body every hour. Schedules vary from location to location, with classes meeting anywhere between two and five times weekly.
Boogie Box Fitness
As she struggled to surmount issues with her own weight, Boogie Box Fitness creator Dede Barbanti drew from her professional dance background, martial-arts training, and enthusiasm for exercise to pioneer the gym's rigorous yet fun workout routine. The calorie-flaming moves, which have been featured by Dr. Oz and publications such as Dance magazine, have since spawned BBX Live at Universal City Walk and the more vigorous BBX Hardcore. Behind the regimens' popularity lie easy-to-follow steps culled from kickboxing, strength training, plyometrics, and Latin and hip-hop dance. In addition to motivating patrons to shimmy into fitter physiques, Dede channels her expertise as a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist into the BBX Body membership site. Here, visitors can peruse custom menu plans, exercise tutorials, and life-coaching advice given by the world's smartest biceps.
