Sit-ups remain one of the best methods of reshaping the abdomen, second only to standing in front of a lit cannon. Enjoy explosive exercise with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a four-week boot camp from Code Pink Fitness Boot Camp, valid at 16 locations. (a $174 value). Boot camp sessions are held three times a week.
Code Pink camps are designed to help women seek out their svelte, healthier selves with engaging one-hour workouts and positive reinforcement. Before any fat fighting occurs, a highly trained instructor evaluates participants' fitness levels to plan a regiment that will accomplish the best results. During each session, women don pink duds and sweat out complimentary colors with low-impact exercises customized to each camper's fitness level. Ladies careen through challenging obstacle courses, build bulk with strength-training exercises, and get limber with flexibility routines drawn from yoga or Pilates.
One-on-one nutritional counseling slays dietary Sphinxes and their confusing riddles and replaces them with a detailed program to accompany the workouts. Some women have seen dramatic results from the camps, such as reducing waist size by three inches, body-fat percentages by 5%–8%, and jean sizes by two units. Participants are encouraged to bring a set of 5-pound dumbbell weights, an exercise mat, and a child-like sense of wonder for the post-workout finger-painting sessions. Check the calendar to find the next session.
