Boot camps are a quick way to get in shape for upcoming marathons or adrenaline-pumping prison escapes. Jump the fence with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a 1 month, 20-class pass to Boot Camp Las Vegas (a $250 value). This Groupon is good for classes at your choice of the following nearby park locations: Somerset Hills Park, Red Ridge Park off Arby Avenue, Mission Hills, Mountain View, Centennial Hills Park, the Vistas Park, or Desert Breeze Park.
The 60-minute outdoor workouts increase endurance and strength while facilitating weight loss through a series of high-intensity exercises. You’ll do power kicks, harness pulls, hill work, challenging obstacle courses, lunges and squats with weights, and more. Between the camp's seven locations, more than 70 classes are offered each week, making it easy to achieve basic fitness goals, kick athletic training into high gear, or make forearms strong enough to climb Jack’s beanstalk. Since the group classes promote a team mentality, students motivate each other to take on new challenges and strive for their physical best.
Boot Camp Las Vegas's instructors, who are certified personal trainers, are tough as nails; they each had to complete 64 days of Boot Camp Las Vegas training to prove their mettle before training others. But their hearts are as soft as puppies’ ears, perking up to listen closely to your health and happiness. By the time you've attended the last of your 20 boot camps, you'll be so strong and nimble that tight-lidded jam jars will tremble beneath your gaze. Register for classes online (you must use all 20 classes within one month of your first class).
Boot Camp Las Vegas champions the 2009 Best Workout Place: Staff Pick award from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and has been featured in both the Review-Journal's Living section and a monthly fashion reporter's column.
- We prefer being shouted at by drill sergeantlike instructors at one of 60 hourlong classes, offered from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. across the valley. Each session emphasizes different body parts, all include cardio. – Best of Las Vegas
- My arms now beg for tank tops. Pre-Boot Camp the only thing they begged for was a Pillsbury poke. Sure, the discipline hurts; but it's a good hurt. – Xazmin Garza, Review-Journal
Boot Camp Las Vegas
Julie Johnston founded Boot Camp Las Vegas in 2005, when—after unsuccessfully trying to lose 60 pounds through a battery of exercise techniques—she considered enlisting in the military solely for the physical challenge and camaraderie. Upon reconsideration, she decided to reclaim some turf from the lazy birds in nearby parks and stage her own workouts to build the physical and mental toughness she knew she was capable of developing. Today, a team of instructors—all certified personal trainers who have completed 64 days of boot-camp training—preaches Johnston's program to exercisers of all fitness levels. To help monitor and maximize workouts, they stage weigh-ins, take measurements, perform physical-fitness tests, and dish out a nutrition packet to shed light on healthy eating.
