Today’s Groupon will light a fire inside you—but not the kind you endured during your fire-eating internship at the circus. For $69, you get four weeks of unlimited sessions at Camp Gladiator (a $160 value). This deal is good at any of Camp Gladiator's eight Austin locations. Bring your own mat, towel, water, and sweat.
Camp Gladiator is a fitness boot camp far different from the boot camp you sent your disobedient teenage son to that one time on Maury. The Austin camp is headed by trainer Ally Davidson—also known as the 2008 American Gladiator Grand Champion. No drill sergeants will be barking commands through cigars as you drop and give them 200 push-ups in the rain at this boot camp, but there will be obstacle courses, tug-of-war, plyometrics, sprint and agility drills, and, well, some push-ups. As with personal trainers, fitness boot camps deliver results. Unlike with personal trainers, however, this deal lets you attend as many sessions as you like at whatever location you choose—all at a flat and modest price.
Regardless of how many times you yourself have been named American Gladiator or Ninja Warrior, this Groupon is perfect if you are looking to lose weight, try something new, or gain the endurance needed to survive a season of Bar Mitzvahs.
The next camp starts on January 11. Sign up for your camp using the directions on your Groupon.
Yelpers give Camp Gladiator's Dallas camp it a near-perfect 4.5 stars, and two others give the Austin camp a five-star rating:
I used to be AFRAID of boot camps…Not at Camp Gladiator. Ally and Ali (isn't that cute?!) are so supportive of everyone's fitness level and encourage you to "kick your own butt." what makes it great, is that you want to. – felice t.
I just completed my first week, and so far it's been just the thing I needed. I already feel stronger, not to mention that I sleep much better and feel great both mentally and physically. – Jill P.
- The trainers were motivating without being mean or pushy and thankfully they weren't TOO perky. – Nickie G.
