People exercise to feel good, live longer, and train for jury duty after the city swaps benches for Stairmasters. Prepare for even the most strenuous of civic obligations with today's Groupon: for $47, you get three 45-minute personal training sessions at Vita Fitness & Physical Therapy (a $174 value), with locations in Milwaukee and Fox Point.
The personal trainers at Vita Fitness work in tandem with licensed physical therapists to design custom regimens for clients of all fitness levels. After evaluating posture and weak areas in the body and appraising flexibility with a Twister test, the expert shape-shifters draw up workouts that may employ Woodway treadmills, Keiser strength equipment, free weights, and balls. Guests also get advice on weight loss and nutrition, as well as sport-specific training tips for everything from running to racquetball to underwater jai-alai. Six trainers on staff at the 3rd Ward gym and more at the Fox Point location easily accommodate schedules for early birds, lunchtime larks, and nighthawks. On-site extras include private lockers, showers, a smoothie bar, and off-street parking.
