  • Get In Shape for Women - Medford
    The clients at Get In Shape For Women don't just rave about looking better in their clothes. They talk about having the stamina to keep up with their kids and feeling beautiful on their wedding day. That's because GISFW is about providing smart, supportive workouts. Instead of fending for themselves at a gym, clients enroll in small-group personal training that gives them support from their trainer as well as from other women with similar health and fitness goals. Groups of four women follow a four-part training program, which includes cardio, weight training, nutrition, and, most importantly, accountability to achieve results. GISFW customizes client workouts to a client's ability and progress accordingly. This formula has worked for countless women, as the trainer-founded brand has expanded to more than 100 locations across the country.

  • Boston Body Pilates
    It was the early 1980s, and after devoting about a decade of her life to fitness, Zayna Gold felt like her body was beaten up. Over time, she began noticing that her high-intensity gym workouts were hurting her body as much as—if not more than—they were helping it. Her husband, Clark, was having the same problem. An avid weightlifter and runner, he found the physical wear and tear was starting to prevent him from maintaining his physique. Zayna recalled teaching Pilates early on in her career, and how it worked her entire body with low-impact movements. She returned to the lengthening and strengthening classes, and by 1989, she and Clark founded Boston Body Pilates. Their mat, equipment, and barre classes each call upon low-impact stretches and resistance moves that strengthen the core, elongate muscles, and promote overall muscle tone. Zayna's signature program, Brand New Body, challenges students to complete 30 Pilates or barre classes over 2–3 months; and upon completion, they may notice significant changes to their figure. The schedule also includes spinning classes, in diverse variations such as Zen Spin and Spin Bootcamp. In any class, Zayna and her large team of instructors inspire their students to establish a mind-body connection, helping them to feel both physically and mentally stronger, much like solving a crossword puzzle carved in stone.

  • The Paint Bar
    Helmed by a mother-daughter duo, The Paint Bar nurtures budding artists through themed painting classes set in a welcoming atmosphere. Brush-stroking disciples receive step-by-step guidance from skilled instructors, who lead classes designed to replicate a specific image, such as the famous Citgo sign, Boston's skyline, or van Gogh?s lesser known masterpiece, Frowny Emoticon. The Paint Bar supplies Monets-in-training with a 16"x20" canvas, paint, brushes, an easel, and an apron, though painters should wear clothes they don't mind getting splattered. Classes are generally held four or five times per week, at varying time slots; check out the calendar to reserve a spot, as class space is limited. Though this Groupon is not valid for alcohol, The Paint Bar offers an intoxicating selection of brews, wine, and all of the 1975 issues of Popular Mechanics.

  • Giroux Bros. Martial Arts
    No one is born with the ability to do a roundhouse kick, but—under the guidance of the sage instructors at Giroux Bros. Martial Arts—most can learn.

Students learn to kick, chop, and block from instructors who hold black belts, including founder Steve Giroux, a 6th-degree black belt and regular contributor to the martial arts community at large.
