The best benefit of fitness training outside and in a group setting is that passing wolves are more likely to join your pack than attack it. Acquire a six-pack and four-legged friends with today’s Groupon. For $59, you get four weeks of boot-camp sessions (a $197 value) at Dallas Fitness Boot Camps. Dallas Fitness's boot camps are held indoors and outdoors on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at three locations -- in Farmers Branch at 6 a.m., in Addison at 5:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., and Sunnyvale at 5:30 a.m.
At Dallas Fitness Boot Camps, the enemy is predictability. To combat this deadly dull foe, the Dallas Fitness Boot Camps coaches—Jermey Calahan, a former member of the St. Louis Rams; Ron Routhier, a U.S. Army Master Trainer; and Nicole Spurgeon, a top figure competitor—will throw down a fresh guerrilla-ambush worth of challenges for the muscles and brain every session, fueling constant gains and keeping classes engaged. Over the course of each 45-minute session, participants might run, jump, slam out push-ups and lunges, chase chickens, punch slabs of beef, and close with wrestling a live alligator. Or they might do something bizarre and unexpected, such as lift heavy weights multiple times in succession. In the heat of each workout, participants will sweat out weakness, fear, and monosodium glutamate as they gain the unsurpassed functional strength of a body in fluid, powerful motion. Additionally, Coach Calahan's nutritional guidance and 24-hour email support will help slimming campers hold on to their fitness gains once class is over.
Sticking to an effective workout routine is much more difficult than working up a sweat during a tense game of Jenga or an uncomfortably long handshake. Dallas Fitness Boot Camps' varied exercises and attentive instruction will keep participants motivated in a way that fitness-algebra class never did. Besides getting one for yourself, you can also turn flabby friends into boot-camp buddies with a few gift Groupons.
Though Dallas Fitness Boot Camp has few online reviews, there are some customer testimonials posted on its website:
- I am in the best shape of my life, and DF Coaches have been there for me every walking lunge of the way. I know that it would have been an incredibly difficult journey without their inspiration, guidance and amazing training routines. – Derenda
- I always made the excuse that I don't have time before I started DF Boot Camps. The workouts are fast, fun, and deliver powerful results. – Jen

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.
