What You'll Get
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 $25, you get five drop-in boot-camp sessions and a complimentary fitness assessment with nutritional counseling at Extreme Boot Camp in Covina (a $100 value). You have six months before your Groupon expires, but after you take your first class, you have one month to attend the remaining four. After completing the five boot camps, those who register for an additional six-week session will receive a 20% discount.
The certified personal trainers and former military machos of Extreme Boot Camp are half drill sergeant, half high-school football coach, half mathematician, and all expert. They want you to go tactical on flab but not without realistic encouragement and support. First, these legionaries of lean will uncritically assess your level of fitness. They'll take down your measurements, weight, and body-fat percentage so you'll be able to tangibly record your progress. Then, after receiving some sound nutritional guidance to aid your ascendance to health, you'll be drafted into a squad of equally athletic peers who you'll bond with through muscle burn and un-ironic high-fives.
In Extreme Boot Camp, the enemy is predictability. Each day, your instructors will throw down a fresh guerrilla-ambush 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'll 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.
Covina's Extreme Boot Camp sessions commence at 5:30 a.m. Monday–Friday, outside the Covina United Methodist Church. Sessions are currently scheduled to run from June 21 to July 30, August 9 to September 17, and September 27 to November 12. Because today's Groupon is good for five drop-in classes, you can attend workouts whenever it is most convenient; just call to secure your first visit and initial fitness assessment. The camp requests that you bring 5-pound to 10-pound dumbbells, an exercise mat (not a yoga mat), running shoes, a jump rope, water, and a killer extreme-workout face.
This Groupon is only valid at the Covina location.
