Thanks to fitness regimens, people no longer have to resort to public-speaking presentations about wasabi-eating contests to work up a sweat. Sidestep the podium with today's Groupon: for $22, you get four classes at Baby Boot Camp (up to a $60 value), available at three locations in Cape Coral: one on Cape Harbor Drive, one at Cape Coral High School, and one at Monkey Playhouse on Pine Island Road. These group classes are designed to fulfill the fitness needs of new and expecting moms and dads.
Conceived by fitness guru Kristen Horler, these fitness classes help expecting and new moms get fit in a supportive environment, combining strength-training exercises, cardiovascular drills, Pilates, yoga, and ab work. Moms-to-be can attend the prenatal program (with a physician's note and recommendation) to prepare for the rare delivery that exceeds the sit-com standard of seven minutes, as well as the rigors of newborn wrangling. Post-birth students are encouraged to bring along their new joy-bundles, thereby facilitating familial bonding and eliminating the need for a babysitter to come by and time their wind-sprints for them. All instructors are highly trained, and the boot camp's structure abides by the guidelines of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American Council on Exercise.
All four classes must be redeemed at the same location and used within 60 days.
