Unlike summer camps, boot camps won't require you to put on a fundraising talent show to stop a nefarious computer company from turning Lake Cowabunga into its new industrial-waste depository. Team up to fight unfitness with today's Groupon: for $40, you get six boot-camp classes at Ormond Adventure Boot Camp (an $89.70 value). Students may enroll in one camp at either the Ormond Beach or Port Orange locations. All six classes must be used within the enrolled three-week camp session.
Ormond Adventure Boot Camp fosters an inviting yet challenging fitness atmosphere where people of all ages, skill levels, and abilities motivate each other's movements. Free from the competitive environment of a typical gym or hopscotch tournament, camps are led by experienced trainers who help participants to achieve higher levels of fitness. Each one-hour class takes campers through a varying suite of high-energy, calorie-pulverizing exercises that might include core conditioning, short-distance running, jumping rope, obstacle courses, and a few last-minute surprise twists, such as discovering that boot camp was all a dream. Guests will be able to fine-tune their figure thanks to an initial fitness screening and a body composition test.
Ormond Adventure Boot Camp fills its Ormond Beach schedule and Port Orange schedule with a multitude of day and evening classes at a variety of locations, with select ladies-only sessions available. The staff recommends that participants bring running shoes, an exercise mat, a set of 3-pound or 5-pound hand weights, an insult-spewing parrot to provide extra motivation, and a water bottle.
Adventure Boot Camp
In the 15 years since she competed at the national level in track and dance in high school, certified trainer Jennifer Labonte hasn't slowed down. Now as owner and head instructor of Adventure Boot Camp, Labonte motivates her students by sharing her own experiences and helping students work through common daily obstacles to weight loss. Even though she’s an experienced athlete, she doesn't expect her students to run a 100 miles or dead-lift her entire collection of gym shoes. Instead, her boot-camp classes are designed for women of all fitness levels, and she strives to leave no one behind during the one-hour sessions.
During one-hour morning and evening boot-camp classes, Labonte engages students with a range of endurance and old-fashioned strength-building exercises, such as jump roping and sports drills. To ensure each student experiences the full benefit of the class, the instructors take confidential measurements of midsections and body fat and consult medical history. This information allows them to conduct workouts accordingly and lets students track their progress.
