Monkey bars glint in the sun, surrounded by a grassy expanse and a line of giddy guests waiting their turn in line. But these jungle-gym enthusiasts aren?t children?they?re the muscular boot campers in Training Camp?s expansive backyard. In the verdant field, certified trainers lead small, motivated groups through a Cross Training workout of the day, challenging them with sprints around the 1/8?mile track, ropes that hang from lofty trees, or lifting weights in the outdoor weight room. They switch up the routines daily to keep muscles interested, and they scale exercises to suit the fitness levels of all guests.
Training Camp?s instructors also move inside the 4,000-square-foot facility to lead hot-yoga classes. They modify moves within an exposed-brick and soft-floor studio, helping students deepen their stretch as hot air loosens muscles. When not in classes, students can unwind in the smoothie bar and lounge, sinking into the cozy leather couches and awaiting a turn in the private massage room. As an added convenience, the gym offers complimentary childcare Monday?Friday for infants, toddlers and children of all ages.
