In today's workplace, sleeveless, bicep-broadcasting business suits are a common sight, and deal-closing golf games are eschewed in favor of sweat-slicked cage matches. Get in shape to vault over the corporate ladder with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one month of unlimited boot-camp classes at RW3 Fitness in La Jolla (a $249 value), valid at locations on Pearl Street and Girard Avenue.
Certified personal trainer Ray Wetterlund III, whose fitness guidance has been sought by NBC, Fox 5, Inside Fitness Magazine and other media members, shifts physiques into sleeker shapes by teaching 60-minute boot-camp classes held six days a week. Participants of all ages and skill levels set hearts thumping during an initial warm-up, then thrash biceps and core muscles into strengthened states by training with dumbbells and weighted balls. Undulating, heavy battle ropes challenge arms to make wave motions to prepare for gripping anacondas that have swallowed several kettlebells. As they dangle from suspension gear or unfurl elastic bands, limbs build up enough ferocity to pummel punching bags. The class marches forward with plyometrics, which send bodies skyward in timed leaps, and bodyweight exercises such as push-up and pull-up variants that target multiple muscle groups. Gams can also take to the great outdoors by jogging, running uphill, and climbing stairs. Finally, a cool-down period eases clients back into everyday movements so that they don't arrive late to meetings due to lunging the walk to work.
