A nutritious diet and vigorous exercise can decrease body mass and increase flexibility, making it easier to fit into compact cars or undersized airmail envelopes. Get into flat-rate-shipping shape with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get four weeks of unlimited health-club membership (a $40 value), a one-on-one weight-loss consultation (a $97 value), four weekly weight-loss coaching sessions (a $197 value), four personal-training sessions (a $200 value), and one week of unlimited tanning (a $12.49 value) at National Fitness & Tan in Wauconda (up to a $546.49 total value).
Exercisers seek out stronger muscles and leaner forms in National Fitness & Tan's state-of-the-art health-club facility with encouragement from a staff of weigh- loss and workout professionals. Rows of advanced fitness equipment fill the 8,000-square-foot health club instead of bulky, human-sized hamster balls or stationary penny-farthings. Pump up with strength-training machines, cable machines, and free weights, or get your heart racing on a treadmill, treadclimber, or elliptical machine, all of which are equipped with televisions to keep brains entertained while bodies get fit. During four sessions with a personal trainer, novices develop a balanced fitness program through conditioning routines and overcome fitness plateaus. They can continue calorie mastery at home after a one-on-one appointment with author and weight-loss expert Trista Rodéo. Trista will analyze clients' eating habits, create meal plans based on their nutritional needs, and explain which foods are best for the body and which are waxen centerpieces. After the consultation, four weekly weight-loss coaching sessions ensure clients stay on the right track.
