Without goals, no one would unicycle the Appalachian Trail or train a flock of carrier pigeons to deliver meat pies to unsuspecting haberdashers. Achieve myriad goals with today's Groupon: for $65, you get six one-on-one personal training sessions and six drop-in boot camp sessions at Studio Element Personal Training in Richmond Heights (a $450 value).
Endowed with hardened biceps and degrees in exercise science, the certified trainers at Studio Element design workouts to match their students' unique abilities, limitation, and needs. These fitness gurus draw from vast reservoirs of kinesthetic and physiological knowledge to demonstrate safe and effective exercise techniques. Learn how to perform bicep curls, bench squats, and calf raises, without injuring yourself or your livestock. With their trainer's encouragement and heartening high fives, clients find the motivation to push themselves harder and achieve their goals.
Boot camp forces partakers to muster all their moxie for cardiovascular, strength and agility training. Arriving at Forest Park at 6:00 a.m., groups of 12 to 25 campees warm up with a jog, then charge through a course laden with muscle-building obstacles and mettle-testing strenuousness. Sessions use the park in its entirety, allowing students to zig-zag between Grecian columns built for the 1904 World's Fair, admire works by Van Gogh as they sprint through the art museum, and exchange stretching tips with squirrels under the trees by Round Lake.
Customers must call within three months of purchasing this Groupon to schedule their first session.
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.
