Getting in shape, much like speed-reading Russian literature, requires concentration and the strength to forge ahead through painful, protracted inner monologues. Forge ahead toward fitness with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get five weeks of boot-camp training at Fitness Bootcamp Inc. in North Little Rock (a $200 value). Sessions take place Monday–Thursday, four times a week, every week.
Owner and master trainer Delnorte Chunn has adapted his 16 years of experience as a former Razorback, a skilled personal trainer, and a strength-and-conditioning coach into an intense regimen of fat-scorching exercise. The boot-camp training course, consisting of five weeks of 60-minute sessions, paves a zippy track for physiques to shift anatomical gears into a svelte bundle of undulating abs, captivating quads, and soul-shaking biceps. In addition to Delnorte’s expert knowledge of calisthenics, the program combines the drill-sergeant-esque cajoling of a personal trainer with the group support of a class of peers for a continuous supply of motivation. The system uses no weights or props—only the human form and a self-supplied mat—erecting the foundation for a future routine practicable at a local gym, outside on a sunny day, or in the middle of a boring court case.
Beyond merely inducing figure envy, attaining acme-like physical condition can increase energy and endurance, help to prevent disease and injury, and assist in averting disastrous encounters between coyotes and anvils. Anyone can enlist with Fitness Bootcamp Inc., regardless of current fitness level, though it’s not for the tenuous of resolve—a serious commitment to all four days for all five weeks is necessary to get maximum results. Curriculum bonuses include a fitness consultation and nutritional counseling. Various times for workouts are available to accommodate busy schedules.
