Unlike summer camps, boot camps won't require you to put on a fund-raising 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 $39, you get one month of boot camp, which lets you attend up to 16 classes, at Albany F.I.T. Boot Camp (a $197 value). Classes last 45 minutes and are held early in the morning (5:30 a.m.) at two convenient locations in Rensselaer and Saratoga Springs. Albany F.I.T.'s experienced and energetic fitness specialists lead campers through vigorous, fast-paced workout routines to help them drop fat cells quicker than cell phones drop reception in underwater elevators. Your month of muscle morphing will also include nutritional guidance to help you prevent bacon-encrusted bacon from slithering its way onto your dinner plate.

Albany F.I.T. Boot Camp has appeared in the Times Union and in reader comments on the Times Union blog. Its Saratoga location was featured in The Saratogian. There are also testimonials on the website:
- Not unlike the popular boot camp-style workouts offered in various forms around the country, Saratoga F.I.T. Boot Camp focuses on fat loss and muscle building through short bouts of high-intensity exercise and short rest periods. Push-ups, squats, weight-lifting, stretching, running and circuit training are de rigueur during the 30- to 45-minute classes… – Mareesa Nicosia, The Saratogian
- I was very happy with the positive attitude behind camp and found myself looking forward to getting up in the mornings just to go. – Kathleen from Albany, testimonial
F.I.T. Strength and Conditioning
Corey House founded F.I.T. Strength and Conditioning to help people get in shape with effective workouts bolstered by nutritional support. To come up with fun, high-intensity boot-camp routines, the staff pored over research and analyzed training formats aimed at burning fat and building muscles. They've seen the results time after time as MRT Session members of every shape and athletic ability shed pounds, boost their health, and fare better at family log-tosses. Because the MRT Sessions are indoors, the staff leads them continuously throughout the year, rather than putting members on hold during breaks between sessions or taking the winter off. They help map out smart food choices with nutritious meal planning, and offer private coaching to help members make the most of their workouts.
