Boot camps apply military concepts to daily life, as do dance parties set to Morse code and tanks converted into school buses. Declassify your abs with today's Groupon: for $40, you get 12 boot-camp fitness classes at Big Time Results (a $120 value).
Helmed by ACSM-certified trainer Noah Alldredge, Big Time Results blends exercise and nutrition to build healthy bodies with an approach that earned glowing praise from magazines such as 417 Magazine. During the 60-minute boot-camp classes, encouraging trainers lead fitness seekers through exercises and occasional games that tone muscles and burn calories. Cardio intervals raise heart rates to bolster endurance, and resistance-training tools such as kettle bells and exercise balls to cultivate metabolism-revving muscle mass. Abs level up after reps of crunches, and bodyweight exercises construct backs strong enough to give piggyback rides to baby sumo wrestlers. Saturday-morning courses cover the basics of boot camp, and weekday sessions work out both upper and lower bodies.
To foster healthy eating habits and prevent clients from gnawing strangers’ shoes, Alldredge, a registered dietician, shares nutritious recipes that take a healthy spin around familiar favorites such as avocado corn salsa, Noah’s chili, and grilled turkey burgers.
