The trainers at Wave Effect Boot Camp use their daily contact with members to instill in them new ideas about fitness and nutrition, much like tossing a stone into a pond and watching the ripples spread. They lead three boot camps a week—an approachable commitment level for even the busiest of busy folks—packed with workouts that can cause the body to continue to burn fat even after the pushups have ended. The trainers strive to cultivate a fun and motivational atmosphere while they introduce fitness challenges ranging from sprints to calisthenics, and eschew angry sea shanties in favor of peppy modern music.
