A strong man wrestles you to the ground to show off; a stronger man boosts your self-esteem then accidentally breaks three of your ribs with a supportive hug. Test the tenets of both strength and community for $49 with today’s Groupon: you get one month of family-centered fitness boot camp (a $149 value) from Fitness 4 Mind and Body. Choose month-long participation in one of the following: total-body fitness camp, sports camp, or parent-youth camp.
Depending on the camp, sessions take place in a variety of scenic locations around Austin and Round Rock. Every class is in a small-group setting where friends, family, and neighbors sweat and move muscles until they’re fitter and more trim than an edmontosaurus on a diet of sunshine. Fitness 4 Mind’s experienced, attentive instructors guide each activity and make the workouts fun and challenging. Here are descriptions of the three camps.
Total-Body Fitness Camp is a one-hour mixed-technique class that takes place outdoors three times a week. Participants shred flab with a variety of total-body exercises, and one class every week is devoted solely to cardio.
Sports Camp causes workout burn with lightly competitive sports and training exercises (including football, basketball, and badminton) along with attendant conditioning and racquet twirling. Every class is taught by a former college or professional athlete and uses real techniques and drills. Each week you’ll switch up sports to keep burning calories and crushing boredom like so many karate-ready cinderblocks. Working out as a team keeps you motivated and encourages you to work harder.
Parent-Youth Camp is general athletic conditioning. Parents and their kids healthily bond over working out, discussing good sportsmanship, and going over proper nutrition with a registered dietician. Plus, a variety of former athletes make guest appearances. The times for this class have been recently updated; it is only available from noon to 6 p.m. on certain Sundays in June, July, and August.
