Without goals, no one would unicycle the Appalachian Trail or train a flock of carrier pigeons to deliver meat pies to unsuspecting haberdashers. Achieve myriad goals with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get five group sessions at Fitness Together (a $150 value). This offer is valid at the South Memorial Drive and South Yale Avenue locations.
The muscle tutors at Fitness Together work with clients to develop custom workout plans for slimming figures, running marathons, and gaining muscle mass. Trainers evaluate the current fitness states of clients with body-fat measurements, strength and endurance assessments, dynamic-movement analysis, and suspended sword-fighting sessions. Each group session involves four students or fewer and typically consists of 15 minutes of cardio and 45 minutes with a trainer. Trainers point out when exercisers are doing stretches incorrectly, help tone trouble zones, and motivate bodies to keep going when they’d otherwise quit or become distracted by the fragile beauty of a passing hummingbird. Fitness Together generally offers one-on-one training, but this package allows for peer motivation and still operates a small enough group to provide individual attention.
