Fitness training, like kidney transplants or gun safety, should never be self-taught. Enlist athletic expertise with today’s Groupon: for $47, you get a three-day Club H Fitness trial membership, a thorough movement evaluation, and a personal-training session at E3Sports (a $290 value). This Groupon is good at both the eastside and westside Club H locations.
The team at E3Sports knows the foundation of fitness achievement lies in proper performance training. Far too often, aspiring Atlases balance the world on their shoulders without the proper bracing techniques; based on extensive strength and conditioning research, E3Sports ameliorates misguided training through exercises designed to increase athletic skills and to decrease the risk of injuries. A full-body movement assessment session ($75) determines where individual strengths and weakness lie, forging a blueprint to iron out wrinkles in poly-cotton human armor. Using the exercises prescribed by the assessment, a personal-training session ($110) fine-tunes the body from ankle to scapulae. Prehab exercises focus on injury prevention and how to protect the body from noncontact injuries such as ligament and joint failures or psychosomatic hair pain. Movement exercises stimulate the central nervous system with dynamic progressions that put muscles through their entire range of motion.
After training, take advantage of a three-day, all-access membership ($105) to either of Club H Fitness' fully equipped Manhattan locations. The eastside spot contains a luxury spa, on-site childcare, and a juice bar, and the westside Hell's Kitchen location, frequented by Broadway performers, has a five-star hotel feel with advanced cardio rooms, yoga and spinning classes, and weight training for anyone trying to out bench-press brazen Billy Elliots.
