Thomas Edison declared that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, a fact he discovered while inventing the volcano. Work up a healthy sweat with today's Groupon: for $50, you get six boot-camp sessions at BeneFit Studio’s new Eastern Avenue location (a $120 value).
BeneFit’s boot-camp classes encourage physique reconfigurement via military-style workouts led by seasoned trainers. All boot campers will begin with an assessment of goals and body-fat composition to ensure everyone understands their own bodily ambitions, whether they include losing a few pounds or bench-pressing file cabinets to impress coworkers. Trainers Fran Santangelo and John Anderson execute intense, heart-pumping one-hour workouts that take place inside BeneFit’s spacious new studio as well as outdoors, blending cardiovascular exercises with strength-training drills to form a calorie-melting tapestry of fitness. A final look at body-fat composition allows muscle molders to assess their progress and register their remaining bits of flab as endangered species. Students can bake mounds of skindough into rock-hard loaves of muscle during any of BeneFit’s six weekly boot-camp classes, held Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6 a.m. and 7 a.m.

BeneFIT Studio, Salon and Spa
Sunlight pours onto the hardwood floors and exposed brick walls of BeneFit Studio, creating a serene backdrop for a diverse range of wellness services. Cardio and strength-training equipment speckle the studio, challenging trainees as they work their way through personal-training, boot-camp, and yoga sessions. Just beyond the training rooms, soft white curtains shroud the salon and Aveda spa, where guests perch upon cushy chairs as aestheticians dole out cuts, colors, and manicures, as well as facials and professional BEAM spray tans. Massage therapists also revitalize clients with Swedish and sports massages. And for ongoing wellness, a staff nutritionist crafts custom meal plans based on the goals and shadow heights of individual clients.
