A good workout regimen provides the courage needed to march back into the office, take the clown nose off, and demand a smaller, funnier car. Fill oversize shoes with self-confidence with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a four-week unlimited Farmington Valley Fitness Boot Camp program at Tyler English Fitness, with locations in Canton and West Hartford (up to a $297 value). Farmington Valley Fitness Boot Camp operates on a four-week cycle, with three weeks of boot-camp classes followed by one week of self-guided recovery and regeneration sessions.
Fitness trainers Tyler and Rob English flexed their well-toned mental muscles to devise a full-spectrum lifestyle-fitness program that incorporates both high-intensity circuit training and nutritional counseling. Recently featured on NBC Connecticut and Fox 61, the four-week boot camp tosses fat cells into the inferno with constantly changing weekday workouts. The workouts exercise multiple muscles simultaneously to maximize strength gains and future arm-wrestling-tournament winnings. During regular 45-minute sessions held inside Tyler’s warehouse gym, small groups of core-sculptors eschew machines, juice bars, and other big-gym amenities for simple and fast metabolic training workouts that incorporate kettlebells and other free weights into their heart-pumping regimen. Though the gym gurus provide all necessary equipment, first-time campers should bring an oversized towel or yoga mat, a sweat towel, and water.
Not content to simply deliver a kaleidoscopic array of heart-pumping exercises, Tyler and Rob also provide nutritional counseling to ensure that workout results are not sacrificed at the sundae altar. A group grocery-shopping trip and nutritional seminar are key facets of the boot-camp program, as weight loss cannot be achieved without a diet that is high in vegetables and low in iron magnets.
Though Tyler English Fitness offers a two-week free trial for new clients, this Groupon includes an additional week of camp plus gym access for one week, and still offers the best deal available.
