Summer camps, unlike boot camps, rarely allow campers to spar with their hiking buddies or cook marshmallows by doing jumping jacks over the bonfire. Push your camping skills to the limit with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get one month of unlimited boot-camp and kickboxing classes from Dynamo Training and Island MMA at Peterec’s Martial Arts / Island MMA Training Center (a $352.80 value, including HST).
Dynamo Training and Island MMA welcome pupils of all ages and skill levels into boot-camp and kickboxing classes to limber limbs and unearth rigid cores. Dynamo's boot-camp classes, led by instructor Liz Lampard, work out backgammon cramps with a blend of calisthenics and fighting drills in circuit training, martial arts, body-weight conditioning, and muscular-endurance training. Island MMA urges bodies to conquer endurance workouts and a technical martial-arts training regimen. Children (8–14) and adults (14+) embark on structured classes with after-class optional sparring, all coached by professional fighters. Kickboxing and women-only kickboxing sessions train participants to fight and chisel ice sculptures using jump ropes, shadowboxing, pad work, light contact sparring, and technique coaching. Intensive training sessions may enhance fitness seekers' overall speed, agility, power, and mental focus and can decrease body fat.
Island MMA recommends that competitors purchase their own gear but also provides needed equipment on-site. Participants should arrive ready with a mouthpiece, a groin protector, hand wraps, and an overly protective imaginary friend. The gear is not required, however it is recommended. Island MMA's trainers all bring extensive martial-arts, sports, and military training to their instruction, and Dynamo coordinator Liz Lampard builds on experience training elite-level athletes as well as aiding clients with injuries and structural limitations. Dynamo Training also interrogates suspicious stomachs with nutritional counselling and body-composition tests. Prospective students should check out scheduled morning, afternoon, and evening classes, offered six days a week.
Owner Liz Lampard and her elite squad of trainers combine a kitchen-sink approach to fitness with an all-comers clientele policy that welcomes sweat seekers to group classes designed to challenge both the peak-condition athlete and the career couch potato. Innovative, high-octane flex-fusion programs combine an array of calorie-scorching methods, with 45 minutes of cardio and strength training followed by 45 minutes of Vinyasa flow or Yin yoga. Group sessions rendezvous at several area locations for kickboxing and boot camp. The company's online booking system makes it easy for clients to reserve their spot in class and schedule three-round sparring matches with Dynamo's kickboxing instructor or tax accountant.
