A strong man wrestles you to the ground to show off; a stronger man boosts your self-esteem and then accidentally breaks three of your ribs with a supportive hug. Learn the tenets of both strength and community with today's militantly muscled Groupon: for $35, you get one month of unlimited boot-camp sessions at Edmond Bootcamp (a $249 value).
Edmond Bootcamp offers one-hour sweat sessions throughout the week to fit nearly any schedule. During the month, you can drop in on fitness classes whenever you want to have the camp's extensively trained trainers push and inspire you toward a state of anti-flabbery. The gym provides all necessary equipment including mats, towels, weights, and water. Although classes are sometimes held outside, most classes at Edmond Bootcamp take place in a large, air-conditioned indoor building, ensuring a safe haven from falling iPods.
In boot camp, the enemy is predictability. Each day, your instructors will throw down a fresh guerrilla ambush’s worth of challenges for your muscles and your brain, fueling constant gains and keeping you engaged. Over the course of the one-hour session, you may run, jump, lift weights, slam out push-ups and chin-ups, chase chickens, punch slabs of beef, and end with a live crocodile wrestle. In the heat of your workout, you'll sweat out weakness, fear, and monosodium glutamate while beginning to gain the functional, unsurpassed strength of a body in fluid, powerful motion. Calling ahead to schedule is recommended.
You must be 15 years or older to redeem this Groupon.
Ryan Dobbs began resculpting bodies 11 years ago, when he first acquired his personal-trainer certification. As his career progressed, he logged more than 13,000 hours of training experience, helping hundreds of students punch through the walls barring them from their fitness goals. Eventually, with the aid of his wife Amanda, he opened Evolution Personal Training, a 10,000-square-foot private gym that he now uses to house his Edmond Bootcamp classes.
The dynamic training duo outfit their gym with constantly updated machines, kettlebells, and stability balls, replacing worn-out equipment and upgrading to equipment they've judged more effective. Every new exerciser begins with waist measurements and receives a dietary plan that limits calories and maximizes nutrition. Attendees also get Ryan and Amanda's personal numbers for 24/7 access to coaching, motivation, and counseling on how to maintain a healthy relationship with their dumbbells.
