Sit-ups remain one of the best methods of reshaping the abdomen, second only to standing in front of a lit cannon. Enjoy explosive exercise with today's Groupon: for $45, you get 30 days of unlimited boot-camp classes at Ballston Spa Boot Camp (a $150 value).
Ballston Spa Boot Camp scales moves to challenge exercisers of all stripes. Each workout incorporates an ever-rotating roulette of agility, core, cardio, strength, and flexibility moves. The camp’s trainer constantly switches up the boot-camp routine in order to continuously challenge the body while blasting through exercise plateaus like a bull charging a wall of papier-mâché bricks. As exercisers progress and raise their endurance levels, increased intensity keeps the difficulty high to further tone muscles and boost energy reserves. For each class on the studio’s weekly schedule, students must bring a mat or towel, a pair of 5- to 10-pound dumbbells, and a light jacket in case of weather conditions such as rain or showers of sweat pouring down from the International Space Workout Station.
