The most secretive body parts are muscles, which hide behind layers of skin and appear only occasionally to help lift cars off trapped kittens. Flex your biceps in the absence of a cat emergency with today's Groupon: for $30, you get four cardio kickboxing classes at Kick Fever Fitness (a $60 value).
Kick Fever Fitness was founded by certified trainer and third degree martial artist Carol "Kick Fever" Glasgow as a fun and challenging workout for those hoping to shed pounds, tone muscles, or simply punch out pent-up stress on something softer than nearby Dodge Colts. During the one-hour classes, you'll learn basic kickboxing moves and obliterate calories as you twirl into a side kick, lift into a front kick, and learn how to throw a punch. Classes are fun and easy to follow, and equip students with a working knowledge of the handiest moves for dropping jaws and turning heads—and that's just the self-defense part.
Though normal boxing combines a total-body workout with the pleasure of being repeatedly punched in the head, Kick Fever Fitness draws its strength from its combination of aerobics, boxing, and martial arts. The fast-paced classes enable participants to shed upward of 800 calories while increasing strength, flexibility, and the odds of impressing frenemies at an upcoming high-school reunion. Classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and weekends at 11:00 a.m.

Kick Fever Fitness
An accomplished track athlete in her native England, Carol "Kick Fever" Glasgow discovered martial arts upon her emigration to the U.S. She eventually earned a third-degree black belt and started teaching cardio-kickboxing classes that help students develop proper form and real self-defense skills as they pound away at heavy and speed bags. Her high-energy workouts burn calories and sculpt the body of each participant while improving flexibility, coordination, and balance. Carol also shepherds students through personal-training sessions that include a medical evaluation and fitness assessment and also serves as a personal shopper with a right cross ready for surly mannequins.
