Aside from climbing out of rattlesnake-infested quicksand or posing for rattlesnake-infested watercolor portraits, few activities combine the focus and physicality seen in traditional martial-arts training. Get a heart-pumping, snake-free experience with today's Groupon: for $45, you get 12 kickboxing-based fitness classes at LaVallee's USA Black Belt Champions in Liverpool (a $149 value). Classes are held at the Liverpool dojo on Tuesday and Thursday at 5:45 p.m. and Friday at 6 p.m.
Students aged 18+ tame tension and blast dumbbell boredom during one-hour classes at LaVallee's USA Black Belt Champions, where martial arts meld with fitness drills to mold muscles and boost stamina. Led by sensei Kim Andrello, the Ring Ready Fitness classes induce sweating and promote pulmonary health in pumped-up practitioners, reducing stress and burning calories with each punch, jab, and cleverly rhyming quip. Along the way, you'll build strength and endurance, getting ever so much closer to transforming your out-of-shape shape into the chiseled hourglass, ruler, or human hexagon you've always wanted to be.
The dojo's unassuming white brick and red trim contain room to unleash your inner kanagroo safely in both the ring and on the mats. Founder Kyoshi Steve LaVallee has owned dojos and mentored students since he was 18 years old, and continues to offer advice in a weekly blog and audiocast, encouraging students to rebound from defeats, helping parents talk with their kids, and continually stressing the importance of pulverized brick and glass in a balanced diet.
