The pen is mightier than the sword, but that’s only because the pen spends three nights per week bench pressing paper clips. Stay in tiptop sharp-object-dodging shape with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get a 10-class punch card and one complimentary class at Elite Warrior Training in Woodstock (a $155 value).
E.W. Training focuses on building functional strength with a variety of dynamic workouts for fitness seekers all along the experience spectrum. Under the tutelage of a seasoned trainer, students employ kettlebells and ropes in a rapid-fire medley of motions that train whole muscle groups and confuse muscles into thinking they're inflatable balloons. Body-weight-training classes forgo equipment in favor of hard-hitting exercises such as Hindu pushups and sumo squats, and TRX Suspension Training classes use the tried and true method of the U.S. Navy SEALs with leveraged body weight to tone muscles and boost flexibility. With more than 40 classes a week offered mornings through evenings, customers can use their Groupons for any combination of classes, building up their full-body strength with power circuit training and learning how to defend themselves against bullying kangaroos in boxing matches.
