Though couture flip-flops and flats make frequent appearances at selective summer camps, only gym shoes have the drive and stamina needed to survive at boot camp. Take your well-heeled soles to camp with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a six-week pass for unlimited boot-camp classes at BCOR Fitness (a $209 value), valid at all locations nationwide. Class schedules vary between locations, and some camps are women only; check online for the most up-to-date schedule and class information.
BCOR's boot-camp workouts scare off unsightly pounds, helping bodies of all shapes and sizes to achieve their fitness goals, desired dress sizes, and dreamscape pants widths. Oscillating between fun indoor and outdoor workouts, BCOR troop leaders guide fitness fans through a physically demanding regimen that sculpts, tones, and shapes statures. Sweat soldiers can burn 500–1,000 calories in a single class. Select a fitness level that fits your comfort level, such as beginner, intermediate, advanced, or fighter jet, and then steam ahead with the support and motivation of fellow exercise enthusiasts. Classes focus on cardio, flexibility, core building, and upper- and lower-body strength training, improving stamina and curbing desires to replace legs with Segway wheels.
Like the rare but beautiful hamster-lizard, BCOR boot camp is a cross between a gym membership and a personal-training session. Soon-to-be slim bodies get the attention and inspiration needed from friendly drill sergeants to maintain full-throttle commitment levels throughout each class.
