Everyone occasionally needs guidance from an experienced mentor to achieve their goals, whether it’s getting into swimsuit shape or discovering that the real magic was inside them all along. Use the buddy system to get fit with today’s Groupon: for $90, you get four 45-minute personal-training sessions at Healing Touch Physical Therapy in Virginia Beach (a $180 value).
Healing Touch Physical Therapy’s staff—armed with professional certificates from organizations like the American College of Sports Medicine and the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America—sandblast away the body’s excess baggage with a five-part personal-training regimen. First, your corporeal sculptor will assess your cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, body composition, and natural imperviousness to anvils. After determining concrete, measurable fitness goals both short-term (do 15 good crunches) and long-term (rip the space-time continuum in half with your bare hands), you and your trainer will vanquish adipose tissue through a carefully calibrated montage of cardio blasts, free weights, balance boards, stretches, and a few surprises to keep the muscles guessing.
