Owned by certified personal trainer and elite martial artist Mike Bevard, Capital City Fitness Boot Camps combines intense interval-training workouts and nutritional wisdom to lean out physiques. During each of his boot-camp programs, he fortifies muscles with three weeks of 45-minute classes before letting them take some time off from working out and surreptitiously flexing in the mirror during a one-week rest period. The classes—grouped into themes that include strength training, core work, and kickboxing—channel positive reinforcement to drive home the advice of expert instructors.
Along with metabolism-boosting drills, custom meal plans steer clients toward more healthful eating habits. The camps' overarching goal is long-term wellness, and to that end, its staff has organized online resources, such as home exercises, to help prevent patrons from regaining lost weight. Specialty services can also augment fitness regimens, and include bridal-party boot camps, boot-camp charity fundraisers, and semiprivate personal-training sessions.
