Boot camps harness the power of peer support to motivate exercisers, just as villagers harness the power of fire to frighten local Frankensteins. Feel the burn with this Groupon.

Campers can expect some light jogging, weight lifting, core exercises, and obstacles courses, all of which aim to tone muscles and build more endurance than trying to escape It's a Small World on a stationary bike. Take a look at the FAQ for a list of what to bring. Classes will be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather.
Windy City Adventure Boot Camp
When certified trainer Diana Ozimek isn't demonstrating practical exercises as a correspondent on NBC Chicago news, she's leading phalanxes of women on fitness forays throughout Lakeview. Like athletes in the off-season, campers lunge across open fields, blast through plateaus while jumping rope, or speed up progress with a time-altering montage. Sessions cycle through a constantly changing roster of exercises to keep muscles confused, and because routines are gender specific, they can focus on workouts specifically designed for women. The non-competitive classes foster a supportive environment, and nutritional advice keeps campers on the straight and narrow between meetings.
If you're even thinking about it, just try it. You'll be glad you did.Gina B., Yelp, 8/13/10
