Since the rise of the Internet, people have struggled to tear their now-useless phone books in half. Bulk up to succeed where others have failed with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get four weeks of body camp at Pure Workout in Murray (a $249 value).
The trainers at Pure Workout chisel bodies with a comprehensive plan that includes a movement assessment and always-dynamic workouts. After the preliminary movement assessment, clients sign up for classes, which begin on the 5th and 20th of every month. During sessions, coaches frequently change the types of physical activities performed in each session, keeping muscles guessing more effectively than hosting an annual body-part trivia night. Training exercises combine cardio and resistance activities, weights, and props both indoors and outdoors—check out the photo gallery for visual examples of a day in training.
The trainers at Pure Workout have stripped away the glamour of giant, impersonal gyms. They usher guests into a no-excuses zone where simple weights and calisthenics reign supreme, leading their classes with a potent mix of fitness expertise and tough love. Their routines vary, but each boot-camp session sparks friendly competition between attendees as they flip tires, heft weights, and sprint up hills. With no regard for noncommittal members who sneak helium into their kettlebells, the staff prizes Pure Workout's exclusive atmosphere—a quality that earned the gym a feature on NBC 5 and the title of CityVoter's Best Boot Camp in 2012.
