The most secretive body parts are muscles, which hide behind layers of skin and appear only occasionally to help lift cars off trapped kittens. Flex your biceps in the absence of a cat emergency with today's Groupon: for $35, you get one month of unlimited boot-camp classes at BFF Bootcamp's locations in Nutley and Pompton Plains (a $247 value).
The encouraging staff at BFF Bootcamp leads creative and challenging group workouts for people of all fitness levels, incorporating low-impact exercises in an engaging indoor environment. Boot-camp sessions are held five days a week for up to 60 minutes and target a range of muscle groups with a variety of strength and cardiovascular exercises. Strength-building routines invigorate bodies with a powerful series of push, pull, elevation, and rotational exercises using equipment such as kettlebells, weights, and milk jugs filled with cement. A barrage of multi-joint movements and boxing exercises strives to improve cardio with heart-racing techniques. Classes take place in an air-conditioned gymnastics facility equipped with cushiony floors to minimize impact on joints and falling iPods.
In addition to group workouts, BFF Bootcamp provides clients with personalized reports detailing workout results, areas of improvement, and frozen-meat-slab punching speeds. Though BFF Bootcamp arms its participants with workout equipment, guests are required to bring their own towel, water bottle, and boxing gloves on boxing days. Classes at the Nutley location are held Monday–Friday at 6:45 a.m. and 9 a.m., and classes at the Pompton Plains location are held Monday–Friday at 5:30 a.m. and 6:45 a.m. The Nutley location also offers a 5:30 a.m. class that is currently full through November, though the Groupon will be valid toward this class when it opens up.
BFF Fitness Boot Camp
BFF Fitness Boot Camp blends the high-energy atmosphere of a gym with the support system and nutrition advice of a weight-loss center. The certified personal trainers motivate fitness-seekers of all levels with positive reinforcement. They stage monthly weight-loss contests to celebrate achievement and fuel a healthy competitive spirit in their students, and write up detailed fitness reports every six weeks that outline workout results, areas of improvement, and frozen-meat-slab-punching speeds. Even their indoor air-conditioned gymnastics-style facility is supportive, outfitted with cushioned floors to reduce the joint stress of already low-impact boot-camp workouts. To further help their clients reach their fitness goals, they offer group personal training and nutrition counseling.
