Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today’s Groupon to Condition Kettlebell Gym. Choose between the following options:
• For $49, you get five fitness classes and one introductory kettlebell workshop (a $137 total value).
• For $149, you get an entry into Six-Week Fat Loss Challenge (a $325 value).
Led by Russian Kettlebell team leader Delaine Ross, Condition Kettlebell Gym's waist-trimming trainers have earned accolades for their personalized workouts. Before attending drop-in courses, clients must attend a roughly one-hour introductory workshop (Saturdays at 12:30 p.m. and Sundays at 1 p.m.) that teaches basic kettlebell safety and demonstrates the correct way to bowl them through the china shop next door. Consult the schedule to find 45-minute kettlebelling sessions at times that don't conflict with previously scheduled car chases.
Competitive workers-out can enroll in a six-week weight-loss challenge that includes 20 group classes (not useable on Saturdays), with winners receiving cash prizes or three-month kettlebell gym memberships. From July 16 to August 27, competitors can sweat out liquid flab in gyms, attend weekly meetings, absorb food facts at three nutrition seminars, and take a tour of the Dekalb farmers' market to take turns lifting the heaviest vegetables available. Entrants must complete a hydrostatic body fat test at the start and end of the program, as well as submitting before-and-after photos.
