A personal trainer's job is twofold: they must help people find hidden reserves of strength while humming lullabies to stop Hulk transformations. Discover your inner might with today's Groupon: for $39, you get four one-hour personal-training sessions at Studio Element Personal Training (a $240 value).
Studio Element's personal trainers, who each hold an exercise-related degree and certification from at least one nationally recognized fitness organization, tailor one-hour workouts for each client. Guests hand over the tangle of their individual goals to coaches who weave them into personalized private sessions where clients build muscle by battling their own body resistance on suspension equipment, learning to outmaneuver the trapeze artist who keeps stealing the morning paper. Strength training challenges muscles with weighted balls and free weights, and pushups and other classic calisthenics rev sweat glands into overdrive. As bodies acclimate to their routines, trainers stave off predictability by switching up drills or replacing barbells with pythons. Though the staff strives to defy patrons' perceived physical limits, every session emphasizes shrewd and safe exercise.
Studio Element Personal Training
At Studio Element Personal Training, the trainers begin their work with clients well before anyone breaks a sweat. First, they take the time to talk to clients to find out their fitness goals, along with their current ability level and any limitations. From there, they create custom plans for each exerciser to ensure the most effective—and safe—workout possible. Small-group training classes are also available.
