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 30 days of fitness boot camp plus a wellness package that includes one personal training session, one yoga session, and a variety of complimentary extras, from Trainer J's Bootcamp on Brilliant Avenue in Aspinwall (up to a $270 total value).
Led by Jason (Trainer J) Ferraro, Trainer J's Bootcamp guides bodies toward slimness and strength with its 30-day fitness regimen. Indoor and outdoor classes focus on weight loss, strength building, toning, nutrition, and cardio training. Fulfill Rocky-fuelled fantasies as you let loose with high-energy jump-roping exercises, abdominal workouts, and jumping jacks—all while enjoying the positive support of the instructor and your fellow classmates.
In addition to the 30-day boot camp (a $200 value), one free session of group personal training (a $25 value) and one free session of group yoga ($10 value) further sculpt physiques. A free protein shake (a $5 value) and complimentary meal-plan book (a $10 value) help students fend off the temptation of ice-cream sandwiches and beer-battered marshmallows, and a haircut at Supercuts (a $20 value) adorns their newly fit frames with freshly cropped follicles. This Groupon also enables purchasers to repair battle-hardened muscles with a 50% discount on therapeutic massage at neighboring ESSpa ($55–$150) or harden them further with a $5 discount on protein powder.
Bootcamp classes are currently being added but are tentatively scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, giving weekday-work warriors the opportunity to exercise after a grueling day at the cotton-candy mines. Call for the most up-to-date schedule.
Body Proud Fitness Boot Camp
Though the term “boot camp” may conjure images of aggressive drill sergeants barking orders as their recruits struggle through grueling tasks, Body Proud Fitness Boot Camp sessions are much the opposite. Their enthusiastic trainers motivate patrons in outdoor boot-camp classes, issuing positive reinforcement as they work together to burn calories and excess fat through challenging, but not defeating, exercises. Each one-hour session is designed to promote fat loss with a varied routine of interval training that my involve weightlifting, push-ups, sit-ups, and plyometrics. Many activities require participants to band together to tackle obstacles, bolstering a sense of support and camaraderie. Instructors then lead exercisers in a cool down with yoga and stretching, leaving them more limber than a linguini noodle basking in a jacuzzi.
In addition to the calorie-blasting boot camps, Body Proud Fitness Boot Camp’s weight-loss specialties include one-on-one personal training and nutritional counseling. Clients gain access to the Truestar at-home training and nutrition programs, which lead them toward overall wellness with custom meal plans and supplements paired with tailored fitness routines.
