Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a fitness package at K.O.R.E. Wellness (an $80 total value), which includes:

  • One evaluation and movement screen (a $40 value)
  • 12 fitness classes of your choice (a $40 value)

K.O.R.E. Wellness facilitates fitness for exercisers of all abilities with personalized, safe, and effective workouts. An initial movement screening examines each anatomy's aptness for physical activity, charting baseline body-fat percentages, blood pressure, heart rate, and functional movement. Consultants also delve into each client's fitness goals in order to prescribe the ideal plan for ameliorating one's health or bettering one's likelihood of body doubling for Fabio.

Afterward, clients can chase chiseled dreams in any combination of K.O.R.E.'s six class styles. Survival Fitness funnels fighting moves from boxing and kickboxing into a succinct workout designed to boost cardiovascular endurance. For further stamina strengthening, K.O.R.E.'s Mud Run training course dashes through a series of climbable, jumpable, and crawl-underable obstacles to prepare participants for the Marines-sponsored race or to add spice to routines as dull and squeaky clean as a rubber ducky riddled with ennui. Transform calories into taut muscles by strategically swinging handled weights in the Kettlebell class, or work gently with physio bands and body resistance in Functional Movement, tailored to clients with chronic pains. K.O.R.E.'s carte of classes rounds out with classic Yoga and Bootcamp.

K.O.R.E. Wellness

Owner Elise Matthews started K.O.R.E. Wellness when she was 25, hoping to use her background as a semipro goalie to help people to live fitter, pain-free lives. With the belief that impersonal machines can never match the overall core-strengthening benefits of resistance exercises, she trains clients to become aware of how their bodies move. She draws on a litany of certifications, a master's degree in exercise physiology from USC, and recognition from Dragon Door as a level 2 Russian-kettlebell instructor, or the second in a series of nesting Russian-kettlebell instructors.

Each week, the sporty scientist leads many of the more than 30 classes held at her facility. She takes a break from wringing sweat from her clients to provide postural assessments and nutritional counseling, enlisting the help of massage therapist Micheal Burkett and yoga instructor Jenny Prather to ply their relaxing and healing trades at the gym.
