The most secretive body parts are muscles, which hide behind layers of skin and appear only occasionally to help lift cars off trapped kittens. Flex your biceps in the absence of a cat emergency with today's Groupon: for $60, you get an all-level, six-week boot camp membership at Crossfit Downtown Winston (a $180 value).
CrossFit Downtown Winston leads exercisers through a general strength and conditioning program based on an inclusive set of movements and exercises with the level of difficulty determined by the participant's fitness level. During the six-week boot camp, trained coaches boasting a broad spectrum of specialties enthusiastically guide students through Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, gymnastics, and holes in Rocky plotlines. Each intense 45-minute session pairs traditional CrossFit accouterments such as kettle bells and medicine balls with sport drills and endurance training, shaking up routines while activating new muscle groups. Personal attention and individual ability-assessments keep exercisers on course at an appropriate pace, slimming waistlines and minimizing the need to bribe electronic scales with magnets. Boot camps convene on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. and 10 a.m. on Saturdays, as the gym opens its doors for after-work workouts or a weekending sweat sessions.
