Although feeling the burn during a workout is generally a good sign, feeling the burn while sitting on the sofa means your sofa is in the fireplace. Engage in controlled, constructive body burning with today's Groupon: for $99, you get one month of unlimited gym membership and four personal-training sessions at Body Evolution in Pearland (a $310 value).
A locally owned and operated muscle manufacturer, Body Evolution motivates health hunters to pursue fitter lifestyles with a fully equipped facility and experienced trainers. With a one-month membership ($50), gym junkies can tone their meatsuits with muscle-pumping free weights and strength machines, or reap body benefits on the facility’s many circuit-training machines for an intense, time-efficient workout that doesn't require the use of a time-turning device or TARDIS. Meanwhile, group fitness junkies can join in on a variety of classes ranging from Latin dance-inspired Zumba and cycling classes to boxing and Pilates sessions.
With the personal-training sessions (a $65 value per session), customers work with a seasoned muscle magician to get expert help in reaching their fitness goals of shedding fat, gaining muscle, or building the upper-body strength to wrestle a baby alligator. Personal trainers can also provide customers with an accurate analysis of their metabolic rate and body composition using a technologically advanced Korr machine and Bod Pod testing. These ultrafuturistic devices grant individuals insight into their body’s secrets so they can accurately determine their fitness progress.
In Body Evolution's recently renovated gym, rows of traditional cardio machines whir alongside an updated aerobics room and an indoor basketball court. To inaugurate their new square footage, the trainers kicked off a variety of classes, which include Zumba, boot camps, various forms of yoga, and cardio salsa. When not leading personal-training sessions or doling out nutrition advice, the staff keeps the doors unlocked 24 hours a day for all-night access to the circuit- and strength-training equipment. Ramping up results, the staff plugs patrons into a machine-assisted metabolism test that helps make nutritional recommendations such as, "Stop trying to eat this machine." To get families fit together, the gym's Kidz Zone incorporates play and health into programs such as the Wii Fit workout.
