Boot camp helps participants to break a sweat without resorting to the complicated process of freezing a drenched gym towel and shattering it with a hammer. Obliterate stale workout routines with today's Groupon: for $29, you get five boot-camp classes at Elite Bodies by J. Ellis Jones, located at the Brooklyn Ballet building (a $150 value). Classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. or from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Owner and head trainer J. Ellis Jones and his accomplished staff accompany all seekers of health on their quests for weight loss and buffness. During intensive one-hour boot-camp classes, groups of up to 10 fitness-mongers singe calories with a series of workouts designed to mold musculature and create more perspiration than running a one-minute mile on Jupiter. The fitness center's exercise gurus emphasize mental training to help students to hone their focus and determination as biceps and abdominal muscles emerge from hibernation. Participants can choose between morning and evening class times, allowing for post-work or pre-sundial-reading calisthenics.
Elite Bodies by J. Ellis Jones
Elite Bodies owner and certified trainer J. Ellis Jones utilizes his training as a kickboxer, a football player, and a tae-kwon-do expert to temper his clients’ mental fortitude and physical prowess on weights and exercise machines. Whereas one-on-one or boot-camp sessions tone and hone muscles, professional nutrition and weight-loss counseling melts fat cells like they're a snowman reading a steamy love letter under a lamp. To ensure long-term success, Elite Bodies' certified personal trainers customize clients' individual programs and track their progress along the way. Full-length mirrors allow guests to keep tabs on their form, and unlike a restaurant staffed by lazy robots, the small, private studio ensures that patrons never have to wait for machines.
