Fitness boot camps leave participants armed with the ability to impress job interviewers with impenetrably tight bear hugs. Ensnare high salaries with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a two-week P.U.S.H. Boot Camp membership (a $90 value) at NikkiSquared at the Janie Howard Wilson Elementary School in Lake Wales.
Led by fitness savant Nicole Almeida, NikkiSquared's P.U.S.H. Boot Camps bring the individualized focus of a personal trainer out of its natural habitat and into the lives of others for three one-hour sessions per week. Almeida tailors each regimen to the recruit's individualized needs, with an initial nutrition consultation, medical-history overview, and body-composition test. Her three-pronged assault on hindered health habits includes strength conditioning, cardiovascular sweat summoning, and a nutrition overhaul. After a fortnight, fitness-seekers may be left with acorn-smashing biceps, inflatable-castle-filling lungs, and a stomach that could double as an instrument in a bluegrass ensemble.
