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: for $60, you get one month of unlimited classes at CrossFit Impact in Glenview (a $200 value).
Building on fitness fundamentals such as strength and coordination, the trainers at CrossFit Impact sculpt corporeal cathedrals with intense, functional conditioning and group encouragement. A schedule of one-hour classes relies on short, varied sets to occupy jealous minds while bodies bask in heart-pounding attention from jump ropes and kettlebells. Held in the spacious gym or outside under the sun, sweaty camaraderie powers up to 15 exercisers through strenuous reps on rowing machines and arm-slackening games of medicine-ball catch, and the coaches take trainees through a routine that hits on each of the 20 standards of fitness: endurance, speed, strength, flexibility, power, coordination, agility, balance, and donut stomping. The routines are broadly designed to be accessible to students of all ages and fitness levels, and exercise experts scale each activity's intensity to match individual abilities and goals, watching with pride as students blossom into dynamic athletes confident enough to sack race kangaroos.
