When Americans do fitness alone, many refuse to figure out the machines, do a wimpy walk on the treadmill, go home, and eat Funyuns. Today’s Groupon brings back the buddy system: for $85, you get three 45-minute personal training sessions at Fitness Together,a $225 value. With 10 participating locations in the DC metro area, you're bound to pass one on your way to the grocery store and four on your way to the grocery store that carries your favorite brand of Yoo-Hoo. Once you’ve had your first session, you must use the other two within a month.
The muscle tutors at Fitness Together will work with you to determine your goals (drop pounds, run a marathon, get strong enough to finally confront Douglas) and develop a customized workout plan designed to help you reach your true fitness potential. They’ll supervise your squats, offer nutritional advice, and push you until you see results. Individualized attention means it’s all about you—your trainer can point out when you’re doing a stretch incorrectly, help you tone the trouble zones, and push you to keep going when you’d otherwise quit or become distracted by the fragile beauty of a passing hummingbird.
Some people are afraid to go to the gym because they don’t want to look inexperienced to the oiled Adonis pumping iron in front of the mirror. After three sessions at Fitness Together, you’ll begin to gain the confidence and knowledge essential to effortlessly plow through any routine, proving your father wrong once and for all. Even if you’re a seasoned gym rat, you can use this Groupon to add some cumin to your routine and keep your muscles wondering what will come next.
Being self-motivated is hard work. The tasks you routinely complete are usually executed in response to gentle encouragement from the powers above (the IRS, the police, your boss, your landlord). Applying that approach to the area of exercise will increase your productivity and get you serious results in no time.
This Groupon is for new clients only.
