What You'll Get
Although feeling the burn during a workout is generally a good sign, feeling the burn while sitting on the sofa means your sofa is in the fireplace. Engage in controlled, constructive body burning with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one month of unlimited CrossFit training and a personal training session at Ventana CrossFit in the foothills (a $190 value).
Ventana CrossFit improves the physical fitness and well-being of eager pupils through the CrossFit training method, which combines movements such as pushing, lifting, and running on a variety of body-beefing equipment. Unlike a standard gymsperience, members of Ventana CrossFit aren't abandoned in a sterile labyrinth of barbells, treadmills, and minotaurs, but receive personal coaching in an outdoor group environment guided by a knowledgeable trainer. Fostering a challenging group atmosphere is part of the CrossFit approach, which empowers trainees through motivational coaching. A personal training session offers CrossFit neophytes a one-on-one introduction to the system, counseling work-outers on proper exercise form, motivational techniques, and how best to use newly svelte bodies to slide into high-security bank vaults.

About Ventana CrossFit
The certified trainers at Ventana CrossFit don't subscribe to gimmicky quick-fix weight-loss programs and fad diets. Instead, they value long-term lifestyle changes achieved through hard work and dedication, motivating their clients to change how they look at themselves and their overall wellness. In each class, they lead small groups of students through the high-intensity Workout of the Day, which challenges different muscle groups each time the sun rises to prevent fitness plateaus.
These total-body toning exercises are based on CrossFit's nine fundamental movements, including squats, shoulder presses, and dead lifts. The trainers take a custom approach to classes and can scale exercises to suit students of all ages, fitness levels, and character classes—from the feeble sorcerer to the burly barbarian. In addition to performing the foundational moves, students also swing kettlebells, heave medicine balls, and jump rope to carve a lean, toned physique.
