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 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. Though classes are designed for triathletes, runners, and CrossFitters, fitness seekers of all levels are welcome. West Austin’s four-week sessions begin on May 21, June 4, July 9, and August 6. Classes run for one hour at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with physical-training sessions on Saturdays at 9 a.m.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
SGT. H20's CombatSwim
Trainer and fitness guru Justin Bradshaw modeled SGT. H20's CombatSwim after the rigorous training he received as an Army diver. His challenging exercises encourage full-body fitness, using workouts that build stamina, boost metabolism, improve swimming skills, and promote weight loss. Incorporating the best of land-based cross-training systems, CombatSwim includes plenty of high-intensity interval training and pulse-hiking calisthenics. In the pool, water adds extra resistance that amplifies the effects of the exercises, which include swimming sprints, endurance swimming, and treading water with weights. Designed to sharpen the mind as well as the body, CombatSwim leaves exercisers with the same confidence and conditioning as some of the world's elite military warriors.
