Although inflatable muscle suits are easy to apply and double as flotation devices, natural brawn actually lifts heavy objects and doesn't deflate when given a routine allergy shot. Blow up your fitness routine with this Groupon.
- $79 for three months of unlimited crossfit with one 3-hour intro course ($495 value)
During CrossFit classes, instructors help clients wield barbells, kettle bells, sandbags, medicine balls, and body-weight resistance to safely mold muscles through functional movements such as squats and deadlifts. Classes change routines regularly in order to keep muscular adaptation at bay.
All students must begin with the free CrossFit fundamentals class, which takes place every other Saturday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. During the class, instructors oversee newbies' technique to ensure safe execution of CrossFit's foundational exercises. Each class is limited to 40 people and is subject to availability. After completing the fundamentals class, students are free to attend regular CrossFit classes. Click here for the schedule.
An experienced personal trainer, amateur bodybuilder, and former gymnast, Carrie Carmichael discovered her true calling while helping her fellow cops stay in shape. Her fitness career quickly evolved from part-time personal trainer to entrepreneur in 2008, when she opened her gym. Alongside a team of certified trainers, Carmichael now conditions clients of all fitness levels with a high-intensity style that uses functional movements and short bursts of cardio to whittle and tone bodies. The trainers safely guide students through the nine foundational CrossFit movements: squats, front squats, overhead squats, press, push press, push jerk, deadlifts, medicine-ball clean, and sumo deadlift high pull.
The trainers teach CrossFit classes in levels one and two to ensure that their clients' muscles are not overtaxed. They also shape up little ones during CrossFit kids' classes. When they're not teaching their students to toss around weighted medicine balls or deadlift a beached whale, trainers customize workouts with personal-training and yoga classes, as well as amplify results with USANA nutrition supplements.
