A personal trainer can help you reach your physical fitness goals, but they're usually a bit pricey, and always tell you it's just Lidocaine and B-12 that're making you so mad you feel the need to throw bats at Mike Piazza. Working you out with a much cheaper price tag and limited congressional involvement, Body Design Personal Training.
Grand opening tomorrow, Body Design's an indoor/outdoor fitness program launched by Corey Ritter (the former host of CNN's "Bod Squad") that provides intense, low-cost workout guidance (none more than $35/session) via a staff of personal trainers operating in a rectangular studio with a bulletin board of motivational quotes, ceiling-hung punching bags that lower when needed, and a silver rack holding giant blue yoga balls, the result of no downward-facing doggystyle. Things start with a "NutriFit Analysis", in which you'll spill your health history, lifestyle (eating habits, exercise experience...), and goals before your free two-week trial, where you'll get to swing at the punching bag, jump Jackie Chan-style onto a platform from a ground-placed half yoga ball, do weights using only a yoga ball to support your head (no bench), and swing a kettlebell over your head while standing, then between your legs while crouching -- just be sure to keep your dragon hidden, tiger. You can also hit Piedmont Park at 10am every Saturday for a free 45-minute "CardioBlast" workout that includes sprinting & walking up stairs & hills, mountain climbing, jacks, and burpees, which combine squats, pushups, jumping, and drinking soda really fast.
Get to BDFT's "grand arrival" event to get a gratis workout demo, free food from Doc Greens, Fresh2Order, etc, and rubdowns from Massage Envy, plus live tunes from DJ Kevin Dispain, who's known for collabs with ATL producer Barry Bond, and whose selection of sounds will make you wish you could shake your asterisk.
