Since the rise of the Internet, people have struggled to tear their now-useless phone books in half. Bulk up to succeed where others have failed with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a one-month membership, which includes an initial fitness consultation, one personal-training session, and unlimited classes, to Upward Motion Personal Training on Adams Street Southeast (a $99 value).
Upward Motion's nationally certified trainers create tailored fitness plans that meld aerobic and anaerobic exercises, bolstering earthly edifices of all types and ages. During the initial assessment, one of these friendly physique shapers gets a feel for the client's posture, flexibility, and ability to strike Paul Bunyan–like power poses, charting out underdeveloped muscle groups and taking note of any previous injuries. After reviewing constitutions and hashing out workout goals, they'll lead clients through a personalized 45-minute exercise regimen that aims to increase cardiovascular health, strength, and flexibility without leaving muscles too sore for everyday activities.
Then, put your training to use in fitness-focused classes, such as Cardio Kickboxing, Pilates, and their offspring, Piloxing. The cardio-intensive Salsa Fitness gets hips swaying to sassy Latin tunes, and the Power Shot classes furnish gladiators on the go with intense 30-minute cardio and strength-building sessions that prepare bodies for lifting and flexing just as effectively as pumping iron deposits from ore mines or arm wrestling a killer whale.
Upward Motion Personal Training lavishes clients with personal, attentive service, including motivational phone calls, birthday cards, and leprechaun valet service. Sunlight streams through floor-to-ceiling windows, cultivating a luminous and vampire-free workout zone.
