Unlike abstract paint splatters and ghosts, muscles become more effective when they have a defined shape. Gain concrete form with today's Groupon: for $20, you get three one-hour A.B.S. classes at Underground Fitness Revolution in Alachua (a $60 value).
The enthusiastic staff at Underground Fitness Revolution combines motivational-training and fitness-coaching techniques to shape bodies of all fitness levels during intense, boot-camp-style workout sessions. One-hour A.B.S. classes, held Thursdays at 6 p.m., are designed to strengthen abs, posteriors, shoulders, and other antagonistic parts of the anatomy. Limited to 12 members, the exclusive workout begins with a 20-minute warm-up that increases flexibility and mobility and includes a step-by-step briefing of the next phase. After the warm-up, an intense 20-minute core, butt, and shoulder workout builds endurance and tones targeted areas before a four-minute core-strengthening exercise transforms stomachs into surfaces so rippled that students will have to fend off passing bands of whitewater rafters. It is recommended that students bring water and a towel to each session.
Underground Fitness Revolution
Nathan Trenteseaux, owner of Underground Fitness Revolution, values two simple attributes in his clients. He looks for intensity and dedication. He provides students with 1,273 square feet of padded flooring and modern exercise equipment––kettlebells, battling ropes, TRX suspension trainers––to discover for themselves if they have these qualities. He helps them along with plenty of personal attention in small group classes, though that's not the first step. Initially, Nate shows new students the basics, requiring that they display the mental fortitude to get through his introductory lesson before he lets them join the rotation of regular classes or wear a cape that says "superhero" on it.
