After her third child was born, fitness professional Kim Goodman knew she needed a new way to stay fit. She eventually found the inspiration she hoped for right under her nose: her baby. With a little experimenting, she created a workout regimen that allowed her to bond with her baby while burning calories. Many of the exercises are built around simple things most new mothers have on hand, like their own body, stability balls, and, yes, a baby.
And so Mommycise Fitness came to be, with classes designed for expectant mothers and those with children ages 6 weeks to 3 years. Her 60-minute regimen combines fat-burning intervals, strength training, cardiovascular exercise, and stretching. Mothers and children get to enjoy close contact during class while doing mutually safe exercises, designed with the post-natal body in mind. Kim warns moms to dress to exercise?the class summons up a good sweat?and to bring any baby gear they need with them. Mommycise Fitness provides all the other necessary pieces of workout equipment, including yoga mats and light weights.
Navy Special Operators are recognized as some of the world's most feared warriors. Run using the same aquatic training program that tests the mettle of real-life divers and explosives techs, Hellbender's Amphibious Bootcamp sends exercisers plunging in and out of the water as they blast through a blend of calisthenics and aquatic exercises. A diverse collection of former sailors, soldiers, and firefighters lead the classes, shouting encouragement as as students switch from pushups and pull-ups to freestyle, breaststroke, and sprint swims. Movable obstacles including sandbags, weights, and decommissioned bathyspheres also wait beneath the depths, challenging endurance as they bulk up screaming muscles. Classes welcome all fitness levels, but exercisers should be able to tread water, swim at least 25 yards without stopping, and arrive with their own goggles and swimsuit.
