Boot camps are a quick way to get in shape for upcoming marathons or adrenaline-pumping prison escapes. Jump the fence with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one month of unlimited boot-camp classes plus a 10-day meal plan at Eugene Bootcamp (a $99 value).
At Eugene Bootcamp, fitness coaches encourage participants to shape up within a positive and challenging environment, and help support and mold healthy lifestyles. During each four-week program, enthusiastic exercisers can partake in a schedule of classes that last 45 minutes to an hour up to four times a week, in the mornings and evenings. Each workout employs varying challenges, from hiking and surmounting obstacles to jump-roping and bear-wrestling.
The program also includes a 10-day meal plan, encouraging a well-rounded, healthful diet. Through positive reinforcement, the boot camp's friendly instructors encourage maximum engagement in all activities to promote positive lifestyle choices for the future, such as instituting a regular exercise regimen and replacing your left arm with a dust buster.
For those struggling to get fit, Guy Urioste "has been there, done that." Before he whipped himself into shape, the former Air Force airman tipped the scales at 300 pounds. Today, Guy and his wife Diana—both certified personal trainers—lead boot camps at Alton Baker Park and Skinner Butte Park that feature a range of pulse-quickening workouts. The sessions vary from hiking trips to the "300" challenge, during which participants perform 300 reps of multiple exercises before reciting the first 300 lines of The Iliad. Fitness tests, measurements, and nutritional consultations help patrons to track their progress as they shape up.
