Unlike the instant gratification of government-funded genetic engineering, manually achieving a slim and toned physique can be a lonely, bumpy road. Give your willpower some company with today's Groupon to Black Label CrossFit in Mount Washington. Choose between the following options:
- For $39, you get a month of unlimited coed CrossFit classes (a $199 value).
- For $69, you get a month of unlimited coed CrossFit classes (a $199 value) plus three personal-training sessions (a $225 value; a $424 value total).
CrossFit-certified coaches remold muscles and bust bad habits during a lifestyle-altering month of unlimited coed classes. Used by Navy Seals and Marines, the CrossFit regimen shrinks silhouettes by targeting 10 fitness domains, including stamina, strength, and the ability to resist breaking into a cookie-dough factory. To create a well-rounded athlete each session features a wide rotation of exercises, a process that eradicates progress plateaus. Because each session is highly adapted to each student, guests of all experience levels rub elbows in the same class, allowing meeker bicep curlers to be inspired by unstoppable bench-pressing machines.
From the schedule, which offers two 60-minute sessions a day Monday–Saturday with the exception of Wednesday, workout warriors can create an itinerary to fit their personal workout goals, using their newfound buffness to control the amount of time it takes to star in a home-movie version of The Hulk. Though classes are kept to a manageable size, those looking for supplemental tutelage from the certified coaches can opt for three one-hour personal-training powwows that help to further refine CrossFit techniques.
The sledgehammer slams the earth with a resounding thud before being discarded for a game of toss-back with a medicine ball. Such training methods are but a small slice of the workout routine possibilities at Maximum Fitness. CrossFit—an innovative strengthening and conditioning program that veers away from using traditional muscle-training apparatuses—has even gained popularity among the training programs of police academies, military special-operations units, and high-profile federal agents who yearn to get better at hopscotch.
On any given day, the training team provides students with new routines based on a combination of Olympic sports, gymnastics activities, and metabolic conditioning that may include moves such as sprinting with barbells, pull-ups, or inverted rowing. By changing things up all the time, trainers hope to inspire participants to remain engaged and feel challenged to always bring their best effort to improving their health and wellness. Each session is also timed and scored, encouraging students to keep aiming higher.
