Perspiration gets mischievous when cooped up inside the body, acting out by drenching armpits on first dates and disguising itself as tears during job interviews. Release disgruntled body water with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a 10-class punch card at CrossFit United (a $150 value).
CrossFit United's corporal crafter, Nate Bacott, crunches, pumps, and pushes people of all ages and skill levels into stronger, firmer bodies with an ever-changing combination of strengthening and conditioning exercises. The body-transforming journey follows the CrossFit program, intense workouts with a focus on a rotating lineup of weightlifting and body-weight-based moves, such as pull-ups, pushups, power lifts, and pigeon squats.
Nate shepherds small classes, giving members personal encouragement and adjusting sessions to match the physical abilities of each attendee. Every muscle and tendon strains during the total-body workout, resulting in a more balanced physique than sport-specific or uncoached gym training or experiments with in-the-flesh Photoshopping. CrossFit United accommodates students, parents, and busy professionals with an extended schedule of classes starting as early as 6:30 a.m. and as late as 6:30 p.m.
