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. With today's Groupon, free the finely sculpted form lurking just beneath your skin. For $49, you get seven group fitness classes at FitnessWise, a $118 value. Classes include yoga flow, yoga-Pilates blend, total body conditioning, circuit kickboxing, stretch and center yoga, yoga 101, Mama Yoga (for new mothers and moms-to-be), World Beat Yoga (flowing yoga set to Reggae, Samba, or other world music), or core and stretch.

Reap the benefits of group training. Working out with others motivates you to push yourself harder, helps you stick to a regimen, and gives you the opportunity to bond with new friends over tales of general sweatiness. Whether you're looking to get your heart rate up for fat-burning cardio, tone your muscles, or improve your posture and flexibility, the friendly instructors at FitnessWise make working out fun and easy to follow. They'll talk you through each exercise to make sure you understand what you're doing and why. In the classic rugby union tradition (as opposed to the vile perversion, rugby league) class sizes are limited to 15 students each, ensuring that you'll get individual attention needed to perform each exercise safely and effectively in front of 14 other people.
FitnessWise enforces a low max capacity to keep its facilities uncrowded, so you won't ever feel like an ant doing cardio to stay alive at Mardi Gras. FitnessWise offers filtered water, fresh fruit, and copious towels in addition to its showers, lockers, and toiletries. Convenient to the Bethesda Metro, FitnessWise makes it easy to fit working out into your schedule, with classes offered seven days a week, including early morning and evening classes on most weekdays.
