Working out is No. 3 on the list of most popular daily activities in America, behind not working out and teaching dogs to swear. Spend your time wisely with today's Groupon: for $59, you get 20 sessions of CrossFit boot camp at Body Construction Personal Trainers (a $299 value). Camp meets Monday through Friday at 5:30 a.m., 6:30 a.m., 9 a.m., noon, 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.; and on Saturday at 8:45 a.m. and 10 a.m.
For 23 years, Body Construction's muscle mavens have served up sizzling platters of down-and-dirty, movement-centered CrossFit-certified boot camps. Trainers lead 10 to 15 pupils in one-hour muscle-plumping workouts using CrossFit, the prinicipal training program for those whose jobs depend on physical fitness, such as SWAT teams, firefighters, and birthday clowns. All exercises are scalable depending on ability, and trainers are licensed, insured, and CPR certified. Like a season of Love Boat, each session staves off brawn boredom by guest starring different exercise implements and methods, such as raising chins above pull-up bars, lifting kegs, or sledgehammering tires.
Roy Taylor wasn’t always an NASM-, NASCA-, AFAA-, and ACE-certified personal trainer. He was once a 6’5” kid who weighed 145 pounds. He combated his lankiness by working out, ultimately gaining 95 pounds of muscle. At Body Construction, which he founded in 1986, his current and former bodies both shape his personal training technique. Welcoming of all fitness levels, Roy and his trainers work with everyone from kids to members of the FBI. He leads intense, daily CrossFit classes as well as stocks his gym with machines and uses equipment such as tires, sledgehammers, and monkey bars during workouts.
