Many fitness programs can be hard on joints, stressing out knees with deep lunges and aggravating pinkies with postworkout tea ceremonies. Go easy on bodily hinges with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a complimentary fitness evaluation and a six-week Non-Impact boot camp at Body by Todd (a $399 value).
Having helped a star-studded clientele that includes NFL athletes, Top-40 singers, and local TV personalities, "Bodyman" Todd of Body by Todd and his team of trainers officiate a six-week Non-Impact boot camp. Campers can select two sessions per week from the schedule, which features 60-minute blocks where students use steps, bands, and medicine balls to tone up and burn fat and hoist accessibly light weights to practice understudying for Atlas. A weekly weigh-in helps keep up motivation, as do the experienced trainers, each of whom have lost 25–60 pounds themselves. As a non-impact program, the boot camps avoid joint-challenging sprints and deep squats, and past students have ranged from 8 to 60 years old. Apprentice hard-bodies will benefit from a three-day fat-flush diet plan, and then couple their workouts with a Flat Tummy Diet eating routine. The diet helps clients keep the weight off with easy recipes that avoid common mistakes, such as devouring dumbbells. For more information, see Body By Todd's frequently asked questions page.
Body By Todd
Although he's now a fitness expert and personal trainer to the stars, Todd "The Bodyman" wasn't always in perfect health. Todd struggled with both childhood lung disease and a ballooning waistline before losing more than 40 pounds and reclaiming a healthy lifestyle. Not only did he overcome those obstacles, he went on to become a black-belted martial artist, serve in the US Army, and eventually marshal his expertise as an active-lifestyle consultant for NBC 4 television. Today, Body by Todd's online resumé sparkles with celebrities such as actor Danny Glover, NFL pro and sports anchor Cris Carter, and recording artist Marti Dodson.
It's not just Todd who has emerged victorious from personal health battles. His team of trainers—which includes new moms and former cheerleaders, gymnasts, and soccer players—has each eked out hard-scrabble victories against excess weight, losing 25–75 pounds each. Todd and his crew have helped more than 10,000 clients reach their fitness goals with custom programs, using straightforward nutritional guidelines and exercises that, like dinner parties spent rubbing elbows with famous Muppets, are easy on the joints.
