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 $135, you get a training workshop from Justin Gelband, Celebrity Trainer (up to a $308.49 value). Choose between the following dates:
- Saturday, June 11, at 4:30 p.m. at Yoga Sanctuary
- Sunday, June 12, at 1:30 p.m. at The Palms Resort
Justin Gelband, who earned the moniker "The Model Whisperer" for his body-chiseling efforts with top supermodels such as Kate Upton and Irina Shayk, brings his corporal crafting to the masses in these workshops alongside fellow fitness and nutrition expert Latham Thomas. Using the same SPRI yellow Xercuffs and D-Ball 1.5 lb hand weight used for professional clients, the 60-to-75-minute sweatfest seamlessly stitches together a bevy of exercises, borrowing the rhythmicity of capoeira, the tenacity of boxing, the core focus of Pilates, and the self-care of yoga to create a patchworkout quilt of fitness. As participants towel off and replenish blood sugar with light refreshments from Orgain and drinks from waterontheweb, Justin and Latham will spend 45–60 minutes sharing diet and nutrition tips and fielding questions, such as, "Which desserts are healthiest" and "When is it appropriate to stuff a turkey with meatloaf?" Later that night, attendees can change into eveningwear for complimentary entrance to TAO Nightclub, where some secret guests will make an appearance.
