What You'll Get
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 CrossFit Greendale. Choose between the following options:
For $52, you get two weeks of introductory classes and one month of unlimited CrossFit classes (a $105 value).
For $70, you get two weeks of introductory classes and a one-month premiere membership, which includes unlimited CrossFit classes, yoga classes, and tanning services (a $145 value).
Led by CrossFit Level 1 certified trainers Frank Colavita and Erin Stewart, CrossFit classes combine weightlifting, gymnastics and sprinting into a strength-and-conditioning program that hones in on endurance and agility. Participants in 15–20 person On Ramp classes receive personal coaching as they work up to training shape by learning basic core lifts and maneuvers such as deadlifting weights off the ground and heaving stalling airplanes off crowded runways. After two weeks, On Ramp graduates confront more of CrossFit's 4400-square-foot gym through workout-of-the-day courses, which build upon On Ramp exercises with gymnastics and specialized moves. Pull-ups, pushups, and sit-ups sculpt upper halves, jump ropes course cardiovascular exercise through entire bodies, and Turkish get-ups strengthen shoulders quicker than scooping gravy with a fez.
Certified instructor Renee Fabry guides premiere members through the added benefits of dhanda and longi yoga. Dhanda practitioners increase bodily suppleness and strength by moving through a series of postures while using a staff; patrons of longi coil, slide, and pull on ropes during postures that stretch and align limbs while potentially exiling toxins and improving circulation. Premiere members can also bronze their bodies during 10- to 15-minute sessions in CrossFit's tanning beds for men, women, and pasty phoenixes.
