Personal trainers work personally with clients to help them reach their goals, unlike impersonal trainers, who pop in workout DVDs and tell their clients "Just Watch." Meet face-to-face with a friendly guide with today's Groupon: for $499, you get a four-week fitness program with coaching at Underdog Fitness. This Groupon is valid at the the gym's East 74th Street location and both of its locations on Broadway.
Underdog Fitness's ACE-certified personal trainer, Steve Oberfest, sweats alongside clients in intense, personalized workout programs that bolster muscle, trim fat, and tone torsos. Trainees meet with Steve twice a week for 60-minute sessions that combine body-resistance exercises with equipment use tailored to each person's fitness level. Oberfest specializes in kettlebell exercises, weights, and boxing, as well as welcomingly training the most out-of-shape individuals and giving his expert opinion on sweatband color choices. Dietary coaching, daily trainer check-ins, and home training for out-of-gym days keep clients motivated throughout the program's duration. Each session takes place in one of Underdog's private gyms to reduce fear of prying paparazzi or a walk-by towel snapping. Additionally, the Groupon customer who loses the largest percentage of body fat will receive $1,000 toward future personal-training sessions.
