Mild-mannered Dallas dames can engage in some super-heroic feats of strength after dropping the kids off at school with today’s Groupon. For $59, you get four weeks of boot camp at Boot It Up Fitness, a women’s-only program located in the Galleria (a $159 value). Classes are offered at three times (6 a.m., 7 a.m., and 8 a.m.) on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
After years of watching gym-hopping women try to escape unwanted male attention by fleeing on treadmills, trainers Lisa Kasberg and Jane Alvarado decided to create a stable, structured workout environment free of leering, sparkle-skinned Twi-hards trying to get their digits. Boot It Up's challenging program is tailored to all sizes, ages, and skill sets. You’ll squat, thrust, jog, and jump your way through 12 one-hour workouts, developing increased confidence, strength, and flexibility along the way.
Take a tip from the X-Men's Danger Room and reap the benefits of group training. Working out with others motivates you to push yourself harder, helps you stick to a regimen, and gives you the opportunity to bond with new friends over comparisons of general sweatiness. And if you purchase some for your old friends, you can all firm up your physiques in time for holiday parties, competitive wassailing, and Santa’s lap.
Boot It Up boot camp is brand new and hasn't built up any user reviews yet. But in these testimonials, the clients praise the camp’s transformative powers:
- Boot It Up bootcamp has changed me in so many ways. I'm so much stronger than I was when I started, both mentally and physically, and lost about 8 lbs. – C.H.
- Since starting boot it up fitness it has really made a difference on the way i look at myself. i feel stronger and healthier, and i have been able to do things i never thought i could! – E.B.
- I have tried other boot camp classes before but I would find myself losing interest and not going back. With Boot It Up Fitness, I do something fun every time. This will be my third month doing the class and I have seen a real difference in my body and my energy level. – A.S.
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 eight-year-old Henry Duggins. They 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 for when they get back:
- 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.
