A strong man wrestles you to the ground to show off; a stronger man boosts your self-esteem and then accidentally breaks three of your ribs with a supportive hug. Learn the tenets of both strength and community with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a five-week boot-camp program at Boot Camp Morning Crunch (up to a $305 value). This Groupon is valid at all 12 boot-camp locations, but all classes must be taken at the same location. Clients can activate their Groupon only at the start of a new five-week boot camp; see website for dates.
Boot Camp Morning Crunch bulks bodies with a dynamic routine led by encouraging sergeants that administer drills without the militant attitude. With an unlimited pass, exercisers can attend up to five one-hour classes per week, challenging the body with a constantly changing routine designed to rototiller through traditional exercise plateaus by forbidding the muscles to get lazy and forcing them out of their favorite alpaca pajamas. Over the course of a single class, trainers pull both cardio and strength training tasks from an arsenal that includes push-ups, lunges, hill running, stairs, and squat thrusts. Each of Morning Crunch's instructors promises only to inspire participants through praise, shying away from screaming at them or pulling their pigtails.
Boot Camp "Morning Crunch!"
Fitness industry veteran Dulcinea Lee Hellings's goal is to bring a high-quality, effective exercise regimen to people who don't love big gyms or can't afford personal trainers. In 2004, she realized that mornings could be used for more than hitting the snooze button over and over for two hours, and founded Boot Camp "Morning Crunch!" to help fledgling exercisers whip into shape.
She designs her all-levels programs to be scream-free morning motivators⎯the first stop in her patrons' journey of daily accomplishments. The fast-paced, ever-changing circuit of strength and cardio exercises keeps bodies guessing and minds from becoming bored. Each of the boot camp's outdoor locations has a different dedicated trainer who gets to know each student personally, remembering their names and memorizing any interesting freckle patterns. They complement their morning routines with a smattering of evening options for those who prefer to work out after the day's activities.
