The pen is mightier than the sword, but that’s only because the pen spends three nights per week bench-pressing paperclips. Stay in tip-top, sharp-object-dodging shape with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get one month of unlimited boot camp at Legacy Fitness, valid at either of its locations, in Gardner or in Olathe (a $50 value). Three sessions are available in the mornings in Gardner, and two are available in the evenings in Olathe for late-night lungers.
Legacy Fitness is the muscle-bound brain baby of Cory Adams, a personal trainer with six years' experience in the Johnson County area, who aims to help clients reach their fitness acmes via heart-accelerating boot-camp sessions. With 75–90 clients per month, his students train in a friendlier take on boot-camp-style classes, which use bodies as the primary anti-apathy weapon. Fledgling fitness-seekers tone tummies and mold muscles with plyometrics, calisthenics, body-weight exercises, interval training, and strength training. Small-group training sessions allow for more jedi-approved solo instruction, as each workout gives athletes the potential to burn an average of 500 to 800 calories and pants stuffed with old fast-food receipts.
While online reviews are still building for Legacy Fitness, past clients speak positively about their experiences in video testimonials.
Cory Adams never yells, berates, or curses at his patrons during his Legacy Fitness workouts. Instead, he motivates them with his sense of humor and positive encouragement. To keep them engaged and prevent them from suffering workout burnout, he leads them in a new routine every day. This ever-varying approach prevents bodies from adapting to his workouts, so muscles must always work their hardest, burning more calories and building strength more quickly. On any given day, clients might flip oversize tires end over end and work as a team to push a car down an empty street or do sprints and heave medicine balls in a gym. His functional workouts help patrons tone their entire bodies more safely and effectively than swimming laps in a quicksand pit.
