Working out is No. 3 on the list of most popular daily activities in America, behind not working out and teaching dogs to swear. Spend your time wisely with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a one-month boot-camp membership (a $159 value) and a Nutrition 101 class (a $30 value) from Boot Camp U Austin (a $189 total value). Classes are scheduled at a variety of times at eight locations in Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, and Round Rock. Customers who choose to extend their membership will also receive $50 off an additional month of boot camp.
Boot Camp U Austin's expert trainers build up bodies with rigorous boot-camp classes. Membership entitles aspiring athletes to four weeks of constantly changing exercises that keep muscles guessing and interest going strong. Small class sizes ensure individual encouragement and support, preventing students from seeking attention by trying to juggle medicine balls.
Nutrition 101 classes, held Sundays from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., teach students to think of food as fuel for their workouts and everyday endeavors. Additional days and times for the nutrition class will be added in the coming weeks. Aided by a staff of nutrition experts, attendees will master complex food-related concepts, including the glycemic index, metabolism, nutrition labels, and proper spork etiquette.

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.
