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 Groupon: for $49, you get 30 days of unlimited boot-camp sessions at Vancouver Fit Body Boot Camp (a $197 value), located on West 75th Avenue.
At Vancouver Fit Body Boot Camp, the enemy is predictability. Each day, the instructors throw down a fresh guerrilla ambush’s worth of challenges for your muscles and your brain, fuelling constant gains and keeping you engaged. Over the course of a 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. Because Fit Body allows each participant to work at his or her own pace, even the most out-of-shape or over-in-shape person can break a sweat without feeling the heat of competition. When weather permits, classes are held in a nearby park; otherwise, workouts take place indoors on a gymnastic, spring-loaded floor to minimize impact on joints. In cold or tornado-ing weather, sessions will always take place indoors, safe from falling iPods.
Committing yourself to a month of engaging, friendly boot camp means you'll sweat out weakness, fear, and monosodium glutamate while beginning to gain the functional, unsurpassed strength of a body in fluid, powerful motion. Call ahead to reserve a spot in class; 45-minute sessions take place Monday–Friday at 6 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. and on Saturdays at 9 a.m.

Fit Body Boot Camp
The spring-loaded floor at Fit Body Boot Camp helps minimize the impact on joints during jumps, sprints, and other sweat-inducing exercises during trainer Jonathan Lerner's boot-camp classes. Six days a week, he guides students through 45 minutes of weights and cardio exercises while cultivating an encouraging environment. His classes rely on fun—such as dressing up in superhero costumes for the workout—to motivate students, rather than the intensity of military-style boot camps or the anxiety of classes held in a room full of bees.
