Body By Groupon/Living Social

Disclaimer:  No I am not being paid to write this post.

Now, on to the rest of it...

I can't recall when I actually joined Groupon and started taking advantage of their deals.  I think it was last year when the boot camp I found at a bridal show put one out.  Since then I have come across many great deals, but mostly on fitness programs that I would otherwise be unable to afford.  It's been a great way to get back into shape and figure out what works for me and what doesn't.  The following are some of the deals I have gotten:

Downtown Adventure Boot Camp - 1 month of camp (3 days/week) for $20, normally $150
The Dailey Method (Barre Method) - 3 classes for $15, normally $18 per class
California Family Fitness - 1 month family membership, 2 personal training sessions, 4 tanning sessions for $39
Bikram Yoga - 10 class card for $25, normally $100
Prime Time Boxing - 30 minute one-on-one training session, 45 minute group session, jump rope for $25

Obviously the idea behind these deals is to get you in the door, get you interested, and get you coming back for more.  I ended up doing a few months of the downtown boot camp, a month of The Dailey Method, and a month of the Prime Time Boxing (I still haven't tried the yoga).  I might revisit some of these places once the wedding is over and we have some cash flow again.

A few months ago I stumbled upon Living Social.  This is another similar site with amazing deals.  Last week I came across a 6-week bootcamp that is actually in the area where I live.  Normally $129, the camp was on living social for only $35.  I'm using it as my last chance workout to keep me motivated before the wedding/honeymoon madness kicks in.  It started last night, so I will keep you posted on how the first week goes.  It's three days a week, so I can probably work in some cardio on my off days.

During one of my training sessions with California Family Fitness, I joked with my trainer that I had become quite the Groupon whore when it came to fitness.  He told me that I need to get a "Body By Groupon" shirt and that I should write Groupon and tell them about it.  Hmmmmm...

Are you subscribed to Groupon or something like it?  Have you scored any amazing finds?
