In today's high-octane workplace, one must adjust to the reality of sleeveless, bicep-broadcasting business suits and the decline of deal-closing golf games in favor of sweat-slicked cage matches. Get in shape to vault over the corporate ladder with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a four-week boot-camp membership at Dallas Fitness Boot Camps in Addison (a $147 value). Boot-camp classes run three times a week for a total of 12 sessions.
Master fitness trainer Ron Routhier draws upon his experience training recruits for the U.S. Army to help civilians of all fitness levels slim down in 30- to 45-minute sweat sessions. During the four-week boot camp, groups of 20 to 30 workout warriors congregate three times a week inside the boot camp's 10,000-square-foot indoor facility, which boasts a soccer field, weight rooms, and low-impact flooring. Campers will push their limbs, cores, and cardiovasculars as Ron runs through an ever-changing smorgasbord of exercises, with movements modified to accommodate beginners and experienced fitness fanatics alike. In addition to his motivational workout sessions, Ron outlines a customized nutritional program for each individual based on their fitness goals, weight, and jackhammering experience.
Dallas Fitness Boot Camps
Chris was in terrible health. At 51 years old, he was battling two issues familiar to many Americans—high blood pressure and high cholesterol. So, he started attending Dallas Fitness Boot Camps. In time, he lost 40 pounds and 18% of his body fat, which enabled him to get his cholesterol down to normal levels and finally ditch his blood-pressure medications.
Though the classes completely changed his life, Chris didn’t have to make an exorbitant commitment—coach Ron Routhier asks students to attend just three 30-45-minute workouts each week. That’s all the time it takes for Ron’s masterful approach to emerge. The former infantryman spent years as the trainer in charge of soldiers that had met or exceeded the Army’s physical fitness standards. That discipline shows through now; in fact, another of his students boasts that Ron’s training got her in better shape than she was while in the Army Reserves. That’s not to say that students are expected to arrive in tip-top shape—Ron’s routines can be modified for all fitness levels, and his plans include nutritional guidance that helps people supplement their exercise with custom diet plans.
