Boot camps apply military concepts to daily life, as do dance parties set to Morse code and tanks converted into school buses. Declassify your abs with today's Groupon: for $30, you get one month of unlimited classes at CrossFit Charleston in Wando (a $149 value).
The certified trainers at CrossFit Charleston shun traditional gym workouts in favor of an intensive and intense training program that emphasizes strength and conditioning and can be scaled to all fitness levels. Participants should first schedule a free week of training at CrossFit, during which coaches acquaint novices with the basic movements of the regimen and discuss individual workout goals and the economic principles of Bhutan. After getting a handle on the basics, exercisers are prepared to dive into the weekly one-hour classes, shaping their sinews through traditional weight-training techniques and hoisting kettlebells, as well as rope climbing, flipping huge tires, and bench-pressing equipment-laden volunteer firefighters. Students then take part in Workout of the Day sessions, which rotate through different muscle-molding exercises to burst through muscle plateaus, focusing first on the mechanics, then the consistency, and finally the intensity of each move.
