Personal trainers are considered great motivators, on par with teachers who get their students to write award-winning M* A* S* H fan fiction. Let someone motivate you with today's Groupon: for $99, you get 10 30-minute personal-training sessions at Kamp Pendleton Personal Training in Reston (a $350 value).
Kamp Pendleton Personal Training draws its moniker from certified trainer Daryl Pendleton, who Northern Virginia Magazine named best personal trainer of 2008 and whose gym readers' said had the best athletic aura in 2009. Before they select one of six training programs, Daryl encourages clients to consider their goals, whether to tighten and tone, lose weight, or train for a sport such as basketball or marathoning. Once committed to a program, cadres of 10 to 15 exercisers dominate boot-camp-style exercises over 30 minutes, including cardio circuits and free weights. Daryl's fitness facility boasts expansive space, professional equipment, and its own doppler radar.
