Roughly 85% of New Year's resolutions never make it past the hypothetical phase, according to an unfinished study that was abandoned in early February. Resolve to get fit with today's Groupon: for $50, you get two 45-minute personal-training sessions at Foundation Fitness (a $158 value). This Groupon is valid at the Washington, DC, Annandale, and Fairfax locations.
Foundation Fitness's certified staff helps to instill and maintain wellness through personal training and meal planning tailored to the needs of its clients. Each patron goes through a full physical assessment in order to build a workout program that meets his or her individual needs. Sweat sessions then combine weight, strength, and cardio training to build muscle, shed weight, or grant an excuse to listen to Eye of the Tiger on repeat. Nutritional coaching encourages healthy dietary habits, and rehab training is available to guide athletes through post-injury workouts and help kick addictions to leg warmers. The gym's well-maintained facilities feature cardio and workout machines as well as free weights and mirrors full of encouraging doppelgängers.
Foundation Fitness takes a holistic approach to health by developing personal wellness programs that incorporate nutrition, strength training, cardio, and massage. At all four locations, custom plans are kicked off with a fitness assessment based on the Polar Body Age system, which determines a physical body age and helps track personal goals throughout the program. After the assessment, clients join skilled trainers for one-on-one and small-group sessions, as well as boot camps geared toward goals ranging from just toning up to bench pressing the moon. To further help guests down their results-driven paths, nutrition coaches step in to offer individualized eating plans, and massage therapists ease aches and facilitate greater range of motion.
