Boot camps apply military concepts to daily life, as do dance parties set to Morse code and tanks converted into school buses. Declassify your abs with this Groupon.
$49 for Four Weeks of Aquatic Boot Camp (Up to $169 Value)
During 12 aquatic boot-camp classes, which are spread across four weeks, trained instructors motivate aqueous adventurers to slim down with pool sprints, poolside exercises, and water treading with the added resistance of weights. Students must bring their own equipment—including fins, goggles, and a bathing suit—to class. Though these classes are designed for triathletes, runners, and cross-fitters, fitness seekers of all levels are welcome. See the full boot-camp schedules for the Houston, Shenandoah, and Webster locations.
Groupon customers can also purchase the land boot camp for $39 (a $79 value).
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Sgt. H2O's Aquatic Boot Camp
Trainer and fitness guru Justin Bradshaw modeled Sgt. H2O's Aquatic Boot Camp after the rigorous training he received as an Army diver. Each aquatic session tests fitness practitioners of all ability levels with moves designed to maximize lung capacity, boost swimming speed, and tone the entire body. Water adds extra resistance that amplifies the effects of exercise, and the pool’s gentle gravity proves easy on the joints. Exercisers tackle tasks such as pool sprints, towel swims, treading water with weights, bending submarines over one’s knee, and group exercise drills, as well as aquatic conditioning kicks. In Dallas, Sgt. H2O's personal training programs entitle trainees to attend complimentary boot-camp classes if they complete three hours of personal training per week. An online depository of nutritional advice helps students keep their weight-loss or healthy-living efforts on track.
