"Get in shape" hovers near the top of many to-do lists, right next to "deal with raccoon infestation" and "figure out how raccoons get trapped in the TV." Stop watching so many TV shows starring raccoons with today's Groupon: for $25, you get 30 days of unlimited boot-camp classes (a $193 value) from Lean Body Fit Camp. Sessions are held Monday through Thursday from 6 a.m. to 6:45 a.m. and from 9 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. at the Power of One Self-Defense Institute, in Long Beach.
Lean Body Fit Camp's 45-minute classes melt away the brain's useless boredom centers while facilitating speedy fitness results. Experienced instructors lead the group in a variety of ornery body challenges such as light running, resistance training, obstacle courses, core work, and team training exercises. Classes convene in a large, open studio, which features a full array of fitness-attracting equipment, including jump ropes, free weights, and glowing bicep-whistles. Campers are encouraged to come to class four days a week, although less extreme participants may also see a sizeable crop of results with thrice-weekly attendance.
Nutritional coaching is included in the program to improve at-home habits. Since Lean Body is an ongoing program, students can join classes at any time and at any personal fitness level. Bring a water bottle and reserve a spot ahead of time, as class sizes are limited to avoid overcrowding and back-to-chest sweat terrors.
Although reviews are still growing for Lean Body Fit Camp, clients rave about their experience in online testimonials:
- I have also learned that by having someone there so supportive [sic], to push you and make sure you do what you did not think you could do, is very effective! Without Chelsea, I would be very intimidated by the whole fitness regimen, and unsure of how to start, get there and maintain. – Yen H.
- Under Chelsea's direction, I focus on the exercise at hand, on my form and how my muscles are responding. She is constantly adjusting our positions to maximize the exercise and to minimize any potential injury. – Kelly Young
