Boot Camps in Chelsea

Select Local Merchants

Cassie Moore and Dana Harmon know that whether it's the height of midsummer heat or winter's deepest chill, calories still burn. They specifically design boot-camp classes to take advantage of current weather conditions, mixing classic workout elements such as pushups, lifts, and lunges with more fun elements such as relay races or pinning the tail on an actual donkey.

Brad Pugh has followed a healthy diet and exercise plan his whole life?until a few years ago, that is. Frustrated by the time and energy commitment, he decided to take a break from working out, which led to three years of inactivity and 30 extra pounds. As he huffed and puffed his way back to fitness, he resolved to use this experience as an opportunity to help others get back into shape. In 2000, Brad founded Shaping U Personal Fitness, a gym specializes in small-group exercise programs.

A nationally certified personal trainer, Brad earned local renown when he was named the city?s runner-up personal trainer by Birmingham Magazine. Six days a week, he runs indoor and outdoor boot-camp classes as well as personal-training sessions available on a one-on-one or semiprivate basis. Brad helps his clients modify unhealthy eating habits as well by designing meals based on the 14-day detox plan. Healthy meals centering around lean cuts of meat and high-nutrient vegetables are prepared by a chef and delivered to the home.

Owner and instructor Rachel Hunt and her team of instructors motivate their participants to think beyond the treadmill. At Extreme Fit Training, instructors guide them toward slimmer waistlines and more sculpted muscles in their lineup of ever-changing, high-intensity boot-camp classes. The coed classes are held indoors and outdoors all over the Birmingham area. To keep participants engaged and inspired to continue on, instructors avoid repeating the same workouts during each four-week boot-camp session. Instead, they rotate through resistance, cardio, and core exercises that work the entire body. In some sessions, patrons might jog up steps at an outdoor stadium, and in others they might toss medicine balls. Before patrons attend their first class, their body-fat percentage is assessed and their measurements are taken. With this analysis, the team designs customized goals for boot campers and pushes them to achieve them in each class.
