Chi-Town Boot Camps' supportive coaches stir nutritional guidelines into 45-minute boot-camp workouts to build sturdy and slim physiques. During sessions, cardio drills boost heart health and strength training pits muscles against weights and body resistance. Core work hardens tummies in preparation for balance exercises, which enable slip-free tightrope walks above snake pits, even if the tightrope is made of more snakes.
