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.
$99 for Six-Week Extreme Body Transformation Boot Camp ($325 Value)
Led by a staff of enthusiastic instructors, each 45-minute class focuses on resistance training—participants lob medicine balls, hoist pairs of 15- to 25-pound dumbbells, and bench-press their imaginary friends to burn fat and tone muscle. Boot camps take place at 8 locations. Clients must provide their own dumbbells, and should also bring a towel or mat, water bottle, and athletic footwear to each session. The camp concurrently encourages healthful eating with a 21-day meal plan that eschews excess calories or vegetable replicas carved from pats of butter.
Fit Fun Bootcamps with Dustin Maher
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in kinesiology exercise science, ACE-certified trainer and Fit Fun Bootcamps founder Dustin Maher designed MamaTone Fitness to help moms vanquish weight gain after childbirth. Inspired by his own mother—who cooked his siblings and him healthful meals but rarely had enough time to exercise—Maher strives to imbue his clients with the motivation to do both. Whether training new moms, moms-to-be, dads who had moms, or curiously fast sons whose moms found them in the middle of a Kansas corn field climbing out of a spaceship, his group classes and boot camps immerse participants in a full-body workout with moral support from neighboring exercisers.
