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 $29, you get a four-week boot-camp program (up to a $247 value) and one-month gym membership (a $50 value) at Fit for Life Solutions in Foster City or Mountain View (up to a $297 total value).
Fit for Life Solutions, helmed by the certified trainer-and-bodybuilder duo of Forrest Folen and Roy Schuhmacher, trims waistlines through a program of high-intensity cardio- and strength-training boot camps. During dual indoor-outdoor training sessions, Schuhmacher guides boot campers in exercises ranging from full-body stability-ball work to leg training on squat racks. Like an inexpert British poker player, participants lose pounds in a lively social setting. The 45-minute classes begin at 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. Monday–Thursday at the Mountain View location, and 9:15 a.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 7 p.m. Monday–Thursday at the Foster city location.
In addition to curbing body-fat percentages for showcasing vintage bodysuit collections, each fitness package includes a one-month membership to Foster City Athletic Club. Sculpt muscles inside the cycling studio or don a pair of goggles for an afternoon of racquetball before hitting the steam room or jacuzzi to soothe muscles and ornery backhands.
Though Fit For Life Solutions occasionally features a discounted price online, this Groupon offers the best deal available.

They switch up class routines regularly to ensure courses are never the same from day to day, leading workouts that incorporate obstacle courses, class challenges, and group/partner workouts. In addition to bolstering workouts with nutrition guidance, trainers work to cultivate an atmosphere of positive camaraderie designed to push campers further toward their weight-loss goals.
