When you did fitness alone, you couldn’t figure out the machines, did a wimpy walk on the treadmill, went home, and ate Funyuns. Today’s Groupon brings back the buddy system with $75 for three 45-minute personal-training sessions at Fitness Together, a $225 value. With five participating locations in the Baltimore area (in Timonium, Owings Mills, Ellicott City, Severna Park, and Annapolis), 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.
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.
After three sessions at Fitness Together, you’ll 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.
Although Fitness Together has few reviews, trainer Mark Dees was featured in Baltimore Style.
