Unlike summer camps, boot camps won't require you to put on a fund-raising talent show to stop a nefarious computer company from turning Lake Cowabunga into its new industrial-waste depository. Team up to fight unfitness with today's Groupon: for $25, you get 20 boot camp classes (a $400 value) at Bodysport Fitness Center, located in Las Vegas Sport Park. Bodysport can hold more than 100 people in its 3400-square-foot indoor training facility, stocked with commercial-grade equipment and a staff of certified personal trainers committed to making clients of any age or skill level sweat their way to slenderness. Like a Ford assembly line reformatted to build muscley humans, the boot camp program takes the unadorned frames of its students, passes them down the conveyor belt of fitness, and sends a shiny new Adonis to the showroom. Bodysport doesn't use negative reinforcement to get results; trainers push students to their physical limits with encouragement and the reward of a looking like a statue of a shirtless Thomas Jefferson.
- Their workouts are well planned out and very effective. Both my wife and I train there and our routines are individualized for our different needs…They go out of their way to motivate and get my lazy butt in the gym. – A Google Maps reviewer on 07/29/10
- Mel has been my personal trainer for over a year. He pushes me hard but as a result I am tone, fit, and feel great! – SUNNY8307, Citysearch
Bodysport Fitness Center
At Bodysport Fitness Center, highly trained instructors motivate pupils of all athletic abilities during high-intensity group boot-camp classes designed by experienced personal trainers. During each coed session, a barrage of full-body workouts replaces lazy fitness routines and helps build lean yet strong physiques. Each trainer adapts his or her program to fit the personalities and abilities of the students, and changes the regimen routinely to confuse muscles, enraging them until they get strong enough to do something about it.
Exercisers feed off each other’s energy during the fun 45-to-60-minute sessions, cultivating a group bond and camaraderie based on mutual success and encouragement. The recently revamped program may incorporate elements of kettlebells, free weights, kickboxing, and even yoga alongside classic boot-camp musts, including calesthenics, plyometrics, core workouts, and primal screaming. During comfortable weather, students work away excess calories in scenic outdoor parks and move into the gym’s 8,400-square-foot facility in cases of extreme heat.
