Because they are automatically disqualified from the World's Strongest Man competition, many women never bother to develop the functional strength needed for such everyday tasks as stacking boulders and pulling airplanes with their teeth. Get your body looking more Wonder Woman–esque with today's Groupon: for $35, you get five one-hour women-only boot-camp sessions, plus a 14-day meal plan and custom dog tags, at Michigan’s Adventure Boot Camp for Women (an $102.91 value). This Groupon includes This Groupon is valid for redemption at six of the boot-camp's locations in the Detroit area. Camps are held Monday through Friday from 5:30–6:30 a.m.
Free from the competitive environment of a testosterone-stuffed gym or mixed-martial hopscotch tournament, women's boot camp encourages the estrogen-enhanced of all ages, skill levels, and abilities to motivate each other in a comfortable group setting. Adventure's certified trainers constantly challenge participants to achieve higher levels of fitness, and the one-hour classes take workouteers through a variable variety of self-slimming, calorie-crushing exercises that might include core conditioning, short-distance running, jumping rope, obstacle courses, sport yoga, Pilates, and a few last-minute surprise twists, such as discovering that boot camp was all a dream.
Michigan’s Adventure Boot Camp recommends that you bring running shoes, an exercise mat, a set of 8–12 lb. hand weights, an insult-spewing parrot to provide extra motivation, and a water bottle. Aspiring perspirers can check class availability and register for sessions via the website. Groupon purchasers will attend one week from any of the four-week camps provided throughout the year. It is recommended that participants attend one of the first two weeks in the program, as classes become progressively harder throughout the course.

Each boot camp spans four weeks of exercise, with classes held up to five days a week. Classes might meet indoors or out, depending on which of the nine locations a client chooses to attend, but the regimen of exercise remains the same. Trainers cook up new routines daily, which might include fitness kickboxing, jump-roping, obstacle courses, or sport yoga, in which the class plays a scrimmage using the first student who manages to contort themselves into the shape of a football.
