There's a ritual to the boot-camp sessions that nationally certified personal trainer Mike Salvietti leads online six days a week. After spending about 10 minutes running through warm-ups to increase joint mobility, participants plow through up to 30 minutes of metabolic resistance training. Each 45- to 55-minute session wraps up with thorough stretching to minimize soreness and recovery time. The exercises work quickly, reducing body fat, toning muscles, and speeding up metabolism in as little as six sessions spread over two weeks. They're easy to jump into, too; boot-campers only need to bring running shoes, water, and a towel they can twist around their head and spin like a helicopter.
