Without goals, no one would unicycle the Appalachian Trail or train a flock of carrier pigeons to deliver meat pies to unsuspecting haberdashers. Today's Groupon helps you achieve myriad goals with a fitness trainer's expertise and motivation: for $49, you get three one-hour personal-training sessions at Next Level in Lawrence (a $225 value).
With its talented team of muscle molders, Next Level uses a variety of fitness techniques to tailor slimmer silhouettes in one-on-one sessions. Using the tactics from several different training methods, personal-strength sherpas combine body-busting workouts with nutrition knowledge to create a personalized conditioning system designed to help both pro athletes and fledgling iron pumpers. The modest gym houses rows of barbells, as well as a collection of strength and stretching equipment, to fuel fat-eradicating workouts. Each one-hour session is completely customized to the client's goals, whether they're seeking to shed weight, build brawn, or arm-wrestle a rhinoceros.
