Getting in shape, much like speed-reading Russian literature, requires concentration and the strength to forge ahead through painful, protracted inner monologues. Forge ahead toward fitness with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get 10 group fitness classes (a $50 value) from Fitworks at the Stow location. Customers must use all 10 classes within 45 days of their first class.
Inside Fitworks, a dedicated cadre of certified muscle architects, guide eager physiques through intense small-group workouts. Peruse the schedule before sampling a tension-undoing yoga class or a weekend-morning muscle-pump Group Power session, which prepares arms for office arm-wrestling tourneys to determine which employee the boss will adopt. One-hour Zumba classes at both locations harness the rhythmic power of merengue, conga, belly dancing, and more to kill calories while resuscitating sleepy toes. After classes, students can freshen up or flex unused singing muscles in Fitworks' shower facilities.
