What You'll Get
The easily winded will want to dust off their personal windmakers. Today's Groupon gets you six classes at Boot Camp U for $29, instead of the usual $69. Participants can get their booties boot-camped at any of Boot Camp U's three Austin-area locations. Take advantage of the indoor Round Rock location by paying an additional $10 when redeeming your Groupon at that location.
Boot Camp U's trainers are all trained in a field of exercise that is not competitive eating, so you won't have to worry about sustaining sprains and injuries like you did at that Medieval History major's boot camp. They will push you to your limit, with a dynamic regimen of cardio, strength training, agility exercises, balance drills, circuit training, motivational owl hoots, and more. Each class packs a different workout, so expect the unexpected. Don't expect dramatic instant weight loss, though. Boot camp will boost your strength, stamina, and flexibility as it replaces body fat with lean muscle, which weighs more than fat. You can lose weight, but it takes time and motivation.
To keep you motivated, owner Robyn and her cast of fitnessy trainers will give you a monthly body composition assessment and test so that you can track improvements. They'll also keep you personally up-to-date on all aspects of form, technique, and nutrition. Class sizes are small, so you won't get lost in the crowd like you did at your mass wedding. After graduating from prestigious Boot Camp U, you can write your own ticket looking superfit.
Three Yelpers give Boot Camp U Austin five stars:
- This is a great experience for me. Robyn is so knowledgable and such a great motivator. She cares about her students and encourages us to perform at our best. – Theresa B.
- It's like having the best of both worlds. The advantages of a personal trainer and of a boot camp at the same time and being cost effective too. – priyanka a.
- At Boot Camp U they take the time to make sure your form is correct to maximize your workout. – Ryan C.
Letters from Boot Camp
Boot camps are fitness regimens designed to train and condition your physique; they are not actual sleep-away camps for fashion-conscious children to learn to craft and model boots, a mistake unfortunately made by the parents of 8-year-old Henry Duggins, who dropped him and his suitcase off at a boot camp last week, before leaving on their three-week cruise. Here’s a letter Henry wrote them.
- Dear Mom and Dad: Boot camp is confusing. There are no boots here, and everyone is always exercizing [sic]. They are very strong. Every day, we get up early to do exercizes [sic] and it is hard but fun. When people ask me where my parents are, I tell them about your boat cruise and they look conserned [sic]. There are no beds here also and at night I sleep on a gym mat. I think I might hate you. Love, Henry.

About Boot Camp U Austin
Robyn Pettinger, named one of Austin’s top trainers by Austin Fit Magazine, helms a small and exclusive team of trainers who put their kinesiology degrees and years of fitness experience to use during intense, yet supportive outdoor boot-camp classes. These seasoned teachers keep classes small so they can give each participant personalized attention as they lead them through the rotating tapestry of strength-training and cardio-boosting workouts. They cull movements from a range of sweat-inducing sources, including circuit-training programs and balance drills, and use no-frills equipment—such as bands, medicine balls, and dumbbells—to create an intense and varied session designed to work the entire body and ward off muscle boredom.
The staffers can also track student progress with body-composition assessments, as well as offer guidance on cultivating healthy-eating habits and boosting metabolism during a 24-Day Nutrition Challenge.
