David Clair’s number one goal as the director and a trainer at Fitness For Living Boot Camps is to lead his patrons in having fun. He says, “If it is not fun, you won’t do it; you’ll always have an internal struggle staying motivated.” Here, the strong muscles, solid core, and slimmer waistline just happen to be a byproduct of having fun in the outdoors.

The trainers motivate clients to whip into shape with a series of smile-inducing fitness activities that often incorporate teamwork, including obstacle courses, games of soccer or basketball, and relay races. To further hone in on flexibility, strength, and balance training, campers complete a high-intensity regimen of CrossFit, TRX suspension, and Tabata training, interspersed with heaving sand bags and jumping rope. Alternatively, the Powerfit yoga camps take a blend of flowing Vinyasa-style yoga poses and Pilates techniques to the outdoors. The sessions focus on toning core muscles and building strength and flexibility. The trainers also help clients slim down with nutrition tips and meal-plan programs, and send out motivating emails that have nothing to do with money-hungry princes.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?

On weekends, the 10 bowling lanes at The Connection in the UMC at UC Boulder glow under neon club lights so that guests can practice their dance moves as well as their curve balls. The lanes are also open throughout the week, ready to entertain students, townsfolk, and thrill-seeking armadillos who wander into the entertainment hub tucked into the University of Colorado Boulder's University Memorial Center. The center's eight regulation pool tables won the runner-up title for Best Pool on Colorado Daily’s CU & Boulder's Best 2011 list, and it also hosts pinball, foosball, and air hockey tables, a full wall of arcade machines, and games for Wii and other systems.

At Posh, socializing and learning amalgamate with beginner-oriented classes in which students carouse while creating take-home paintings. In the 2- to 2.5-hour classes, local artists lead participants through step-by-step instructions as they create the selected painting, which may be anything from a work inspired by Van Gogh's legendary Starry Night to a depiction of a bouquet or a nighttime cityscape. While pigment slingers design their takes on the selected painting, they're encouraged to socialize, seek help as needed, and if desired, they can purchase beer ($3/bottle), champagne ($5/glass), or a mimosa ($5/glass) for mid-painting tippling. One glass of house wine is included with this Groupon. Brushes, easels, aprons, paint, and canvases are provided for students, providing ample time to perfect drawn-on mustaches and jaunty beret tilts pre-class.
