Michelangelo famously claimed that the human form of a sculpture resided in the stone itself, and that the artist’s task was merely to free it using totally tubular nunchaku moves. Free the sculpted form beneath your skin with today’s Groupon and get a fitter physique for the new year with a one-month membership and two personal training sessions at one of 10 Fitcorp gyms in the Boston area. (This Groupon is cannot be used at the Boston Racquet Club.)
Fitcorp’s 10 clean, well-maintained facilities are workout wonderlands with state-of-the-art cardio and strength-training equipment. Your month-long membership (normally $89) is an ideal opportunity to try out Fitcorp’s amenities; start toning up and get on an exercise bike to finish Wittgenstein’s “Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus.” You’ll also receive two personal training sessions with Fitcorp’s professional fitnessmen ($90 value). The friendly, certified, and degreed trainers can teach your mirror compliments. Plus, this Groupon waives Fitcorp’s $50 joining fee; you'll never have to pay it if you choose to extend your membership.

- All-in-all we think this gym is one of the best values for your money in the Cambridge area. The member rates are reasonable. The hours are good. The locker rooms are clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. You have your choice of going to a number of their locations. And, they have enough machines to go around (the wait is minimal, if there’s any at all). – Robin H & David F, Yahoo! Local
- This place is a great value with friendly staff, regularly updated equipment, regular class schedule, and great facilities. – bostonfratboy, Citysearch
- I love this gym. It has the most beautiful locker room...It’s clean, they have all the newest random exercise accessories that you never had any idea what to do with until you see a trainer using one on someone. They have TVs and individual TVs on the treadmills and some ellipticals. – Layla P., yelp
Fitcorp's trainers have big shoes to fill. Founder Gary Klencheski earned his exercise technician certification from the American College of Sports Medicine and served on the Governor's Committee on Physical Fitness and Sports for 20 years. Klencheski's passion and expertise trickle down through each of his gyms' eight facilities, where each personal trainer has a degree in exercise science, a nationally accredited certification, and the charisma of a dictator holding pompoms.
The gym's array of fitness services includes cardio and strength-training equipment, as well as group Pilates, yoga, boot-camp, and Zumba classes. Massage and acupuncture sessions keep the body in high gear, and an onsite nutritionist offers nutrition tips developed by registered dietitian Amy Boyce.
