With today's side deal, $11 gets you one fun and furious outdoor fitness class from Basic Training (a $25 value). The sweating and stretching takes place inside the home of the Giants, AT&T Park. Basic Training's instructors mix strength, cardio, speed, and power into their workouts, and then add heaping tablespoons of friendship and fun to cook up muscle-building, calorie-burning, full-body chemical reactions of delicious fitness.
The courses take advantage of all the epic challenges a professional sports stadium has to offer, including thigh-searing stairs, sprint-worthy turf, and more push-up spots than you can fathom. Basic Training's experienced, motivating instructors won't make you march in step, salute them, or shave your head, but they will push you hard. They're athletes themselves who know how to help you meet your goals for a 10K, marathon, or pinewood derby. Plus, they'll teach you proper body mechanics and why and how each exercise works.
The hourlong classes take place rain or shine and are offered between July 5 and August 13 on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Registration for classes takes place online.
