Montville Adventure Boot Camp for Women offers women of all sizes, ages, and fitness levels an invigorating outdoor program to help them reach their health goals. As in the case of magic carpet rides, your adventure starts with a review of your medical history and an in-depth analysis of your fitness level. Using this information, personal trainer Jessica Kucinski plans targeted workouts tailored to fit your needs. Campers meet three days a week armed with hand weights, exercise mats, and plenty of water to burn fat and build muscle at a suitable hydration level. Each week you can expect light running, weight training, and obstacle courses with occasional hiking trips thrown in like slices of cardio-ripened banana into your workout Cheerios.

After working hard for 10 weeks, Take it to the Max clients might not recognize their own reflections. Former 10-week challenge participants have lost enough weight to look like entirely new people. That's because the program doesn't focus strictly on fitness—though team-building cardio and strength classes are a large part of it—it also incorporates nutrition and motivation.
To create healthier diets, participants learn which foods are truly nutritious and "clean," as well as how to measure serving sizes even when the measuring wall in the house is all filled up with the heights of the kids. To help clients maintain the drive to exercise and avoid unhealthy food, the program's coaches teach motivational techniques and encourage participants to support each other.
After having her first child in 2001, Kristen Horler was excited to get back into her regular fitness routine. A certified spinning instructor, personal trainer, and triathlete, she had always been passionate about working out, but as a new mom, she was having trouble finding a fitness program that would accommodate her busy schedule. And so she created Baby Boot Camp, which allows pregnant women and new moms to get in shape while also spending time with their kids. During 45- or 60-minute workouts, certified instructors guide women through cardio, strength training, and stretching exercises using their strollers as props or as extra storage space for lamaze trophies. The company also offers 5K training and nutritional programs designed for new and expectant mothers.
