Like tug-of-war tournaments and harmonized singing telegrams, workouts are more effective when done with a group. Join a fitness community with this Groupon: for $20, you get a 20-class Yoga & Fitness pass from MetaBody (a $350 value). This Groupon is valid at 28 New York City-area locations.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin the day with a refreshing yoga class or wind down by burning calories with an evening boot-camp session.
Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves as well as the occasional heart-pumping round of “What’s My Line.” In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help to prepare them for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching from MetaBody’s team of certified nutritionists. Because the pass sets a 5-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
