Exercise would be a doubly efficient venture if people could split into two halves and have both body sections burn calories simultaneously by riding a tandem bike. Today's Groupon makes the most of feasible workouts: for $49, you get a four-week outdoor Shake and Bake boot-camp program from CrossFit Akron (a $300 value).
Rain or shine, the dedicated coaches at CrossFit Akron guide workout warriors through 12 one-hour Shake and Bake boot-camp sessions, hosted at Hardesty Park, Firestone High School's track, and Sand Run Metro Park. The Shake and Bake program delivers high intensity and constant variety in every workout, leading to rigorous outdoor sessions based on everyday activities such as climbing stairs, hauling groceries, and sledding downhill on an HDTV. The included fitness evaluation offers a jumping-off point for later muscle-building sessions, which meet mornings or evenings three days a week for four weeks. Under the skilled tutelage of the brawn-bringing trainers, students bound past fitness goals like runaway gazelles over a taxicab, shedding pounds and strengthening core muscles while enjoying the outdoors.
