Balanced Body Bootcamp's Kristen Poczulp and her team of enthusiastic instructors help whittle away excess body weight from their clientele with an effective fusion of exercise, nutrition, and group support. Students can immediately start burning away the optimum number of calories without tedious, repetitive exercises such as building train sculptures out of dumbbells and sweaty adhesive. The inclusionary group environment holds each student accountable for her participation while providing a forum for building camaraderie and discussing blueprints for a disposable snow skyscraper.
Nutritional guidance, including a registered dietician-created meal plan and a sample grocery shopping list, can help guide slimming figures past the temptations of modern fast-food boulevards to satisfying, healthy meals. Participants should bring water, a towel, a set of light hand weights, a set of heavier hand weights, and an exercise mat for outdoor sessions.
Balanced Body classes fill up fast with up to 30 people per session, so consult the FAQ, plan ahead, and register for your class of choice.
All classes must be used within four weeks of your first class.

Balanced Body Bootcamp founder Kristen Poczulp, a certified personal trainer, leads a team of fitness buffs at two locations. Eschewing the issues that frustrated her at conventional gyms, Kristen and her trainers rely on group motivation and accountability to motivate women to keep their commitments to exercise and end unhealthy relationships with the snooze button. The one-hour boot-camp workouts blend intervals, circuits, and strength training that can be tailored to fit ladies of all ages and fitness levels. Alternatively, 60-minute Long and Lean classes focus on getting heart rates up.
