Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get a six-week Gut Buster boot camp at Private Workout (a $149 value). Choose from locations in Dallas, Flower Mound, Irving, and Plano.
Private Workout's fitness gurus sculpt bodies and programs with an eye toward privacy and repeatability, allowing customers to practice routines in the setting that feels most comfortable to them. Muscles power participants through the boot camp's cardio-resistance regimen, which ramps up heart rates while building muscle just as a vacation in the Sahara ramps up fear of lions while building character. Trainers deliver clear, regimented instructions, timing exercise while observing first-time attendees in a one-on-one session. In subsequent sessions, participants work through routines, coordinating movements based on instructor commands. Each routine is carefully individualized, featuring exercises chosen by experts to meet each fledgling sweat savant's stated needs and goals.
Private Workout's efficiency-focused staffers draft half-hour workout regimens specifically designed to meet each client's physical needs and personal-health goals. The trainer explains the workout and introduces all equipment, then evaluates clients' fitness and helps them set goals. Members can then return for their 30-minute sessions, which are held nearly every day between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. The workouts are designed to keep heart rates up for 30 minutes, which helps stave off disease and ramp up metabolisms. Guests who'd like more individualized attention can also sign up for personal-training sessions to work toward milestones, whether they'd like to tone up for fingerless-glove season or lose weight.
