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 $35, you get a one-month unlimited membership to BBX, Inc.'s Boogie Box Fitness program (a $115 value) at your choice of one of nine Orange County locations: Capistrano Beach, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Laguna Niguel, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente, or Santa Ana.
Mingling the benefits of aerobic and strength exercises, the Boogie Box Fitness agenda burns fat and sculpts muscles in an upbeat atmosphere. During each 60-minute workout, participants bebop to hip-hop while partaking in a choreographed routine of Latin dancing-kickboxing, dramatic dance moves, military drills, and muscle resistance. Each sweaty, endorphin-inducing session can cause up to 1,100 calories to run yowling from the body like cats from the threat of a bath every hour, and the afterburn effect can last 24 hours from the workout’s conclusion. Schedules vary from location to location, with classes meeting anywhere between two and five times weekly.

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.
