What You'll Get
Unlike the instant gratification of government-funded genetic engineering, manually achieving a slim and toned physique can be a lonely, bumpy road. Give your willpower some company with today's deal. For $47, you get a three-week women's-only boot-camp session, including a diet plan and nine workout sessions, at Maximum Fitness, a $147 value. Get your elliptical to stop waxing poetic on the benefits of cardio by enrolling in real-live-human–led boot camp for maximum muscular results.
The Mount Washington fitness studio begins each three-week session with a brief orientation, in which new campers are weighed and measured, in addition to posing for "before" photos. A diet plan is set in place, and campers are then led on a guided tour through a local grocery store to learn about effective fat-burning food groups before embarking on the hard-core lifestyle of the fit. The three-week training camp consists of nine 45-minute classes that focus on a fat-fighting combination of cardio interval training and resistance training. Open to all fitness levels, the boot camp provides women with personalized attention, motivation, and shapelier "after" photos. Classes are held each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 5:30 a.m., 6:30 a.m., and 6 p.m.
Though diets that consist exclusively of gravy and Slim Jims bring temporary euphoria, being fit and eating healthily create a long-lasting happiness that even the tastiest of meat juices can't smother. While this deal may be purchased as a gift by men, women, or satyrs, classes are open to women only.

About Maximum Fitness
The sledgehammer slams the earth with a resounding thud before being discarded for a game of toss-back with a medicine ball. Such training methods are but a small slice of the workout routine possibilities at Maximum Fitness. CrossFit—an innovative strengthening and conditioning program that veers away from using traditional muscle-training apparatuses—has even gained popularity among the training programs of police academies, military special-operations units, and high-profile federal agents who yearn to get better at hopscotch.
On any given day, the training team provides students with new routines based on a combination of Olympic sports, gymnastics activities, and metabolic conditioning that may include moves such as sprinting with barbells, pull-ups, or inverted rowing. By changing things up all the time, trainers hope to inspire participants to remain engaged and feel challenged to always bring their best effort to improving their health and wellness. Each session is also timed and scored, encouraging students to keep aiming higher.
