Joe Decker isn?t your ordinary fitness trainer. He might just be the planet?s fittest human, at least according to Guinness World Records. He earned the title of World?s Fittest Man in 2000 after mastering a 24-hour challenge comprising a 100-mile bike ride, a 10-mile run, 1,100 pushups, and other exhausting feats. Today, his boot camp program, Gut Check Fitness, helps exercisers tackle goals that are just as lofty with outdoor workouts that have won accolades from TrailRunner magazine and the attention of Coca-Cola's fitness programs.
Each ever-changing workout leads participants into the great outdoors, where they discover the true meaning of ?gut check,? a military term used to denote a test of courage, character, or determination. With the help of several talented trainers, Joe propels athletes through a gauntlet of fitness drills that torches dozens of calories and fortifies muscles throughout the body. The classes? main piece of equipment is the earth, which provides hills for climbing, gravity for resistance, and solid ground for sprints and bodyweight exercises. In addition to basking in the trainers? shouts of encouragement, the group cheers one another toward each milestone, fostering friendships while creating an ongoing incentive to achieve.
At SD Trainer, seasoned instructors replace drill-sergeant screams with encouraging mantras in their one-hour indoor sessions that welcome clients of all fitness levels. During sessions, trainers round out weightlifting sessions, resistance drills, and core workouts with cardio routines such as light running and obstacle courses. They switch up session routines regularly to ensure courses are never the same from day to day, leading wild-card days that incorporate hiking, crawling, and high-stakes Uno games played with 50-pound cards. In addition to bolstering workouts with nutrition guidance, trainers work to cultivate an atmosphere of positive camaraderie designed to push campers further toward their weight-loss goals.
Whether fitness seekers want to lose weight or maintain their hard-earned physiques, they'll be challenged to meet their match at Fit Body Bootcamp. A one-hour routine gives the metabolism such a boost that it could keep burning calories even after the session is over. Each session is led by a qualified personal trainer and limited to 20 campers.
