Before fitness instructors can holler motivational maxims at their students, they must first graduate from a premier hollering academy and serve two years in the Scream Corps. Get motivated with this Groupon.
$50 for a Five-Week Boot Camp (Up to $305 Value)
For one hour every morning, trainers whip pulses into a frenzied gallop as patrons circulate between cardio and strength training. Any given workout might consist of pushups, squats, lunges, running, or jump roping, as the teachers spare no method in the quest for fitness. They schedule classes at slightly different times depending on the location, but almost all sessions take place in the early morning. The latest classes wrap up by 8:15 a.m., leaving plenty of time for students to shower and get to work or spend the day flexing in the mirror and winking at their reflections.
Boot Camp "Morning Crunch!"
Fitness industry veteran Dulcinea Lee Hellings's goal is to bring a high-quality, effective exercise regimen to people who don't love big gyms or can't afford personal trainers. In 2004, she realized that mornings could be used for more than hitting the snooze button over and over for two hours, and founded Boot Camp "Morning Crunch!" to help fledgling exercisers whip into shape.
She designs her all-levels programs to be scream-free morning motivators⎯the first stop in her patrons' journey of daily accomplishments. The fast-paced, ever-changing circuit of strength and cardio exercises keeps bodies guessing and minds from becoming bored. Each of the boot camp's 12 outdoor locations has a different dedicated trainer who gets to know each student personally, remembering their names and memorizing any interesting freckle patterns. They complement their morning routines with a smattering of evening options for those who prefer to work out after the day's activities.
