A pragmatic squad of seasoned trainers, bedecked with an assortment of national certifications, U.S. Army experience, and exercise-science degrees, evokes fun, military-style methods for all fitness levels while inspiring and supporting patrons to push through each indoor and outdoor workout. Confronting an ever-changing routine, bodies can expect bafflement as they perform a regimen more unpredictable than a jack-in-the-box with nothing to lose. With speed and endurance tests, games, challenges, suspension cables, medicine balls, boxing, partner drills, sandbag relays, battle ropes, and pushups, trainers pack a total-body workout into a 60-minute parcel.

With 16 valid locations, this Groupon boasts a flexible schedule of morning and evening sessions at locations across the Dallas area. Like a band of explorers rooting for buried treasure, boot camps meet three times weekly at each location, but students can attend up to 20 classes as desired within the span of their session. Outdoor classes may be moved indoors in the event of inclement weather.
Jay Johnson's Boot Camp Fitness
If you ask a professional cheerleader how she got her toned physique, agile limbs, and powerful muscles, she might point you to Jay and Lin Johnson. The husband-and-wife duo are the brains behind Jay Johnson's Boot Camp Fitness—an exercise program designed to slim waistlines and pump up muscles of students of all abilities, from fitness newbies to professionals and prestigious clients such as the Dallas Desperados Dancers. They have also introduced the program to national audiences through numerous television appearances, including Dr. Phil's Ultimate Weight Loss Challenge and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
Drawing from their extensive training in the US Army and years of fitness experience, the pair and a staff of elite trainers—including professional football players and mixed martial artists—lead boot-camp programs in the Dallas area. Within parks, fields, and parking lots, they conduct high-intensity workouts, keeping patrons engaged with constantly varied regimens, along with games, obstacle courses, and scavenger hunts. They focus on functional training throughout the sessions, challenging students to heave barbells, flip tractor tires, and lug fire hoses.
The trainers also offer a specialized cheerleading boot camp ideal for high-school teams training for upcoming seasons or assistant grocery managers seeking ways to motivate their teams of disillusioned bag boys.
