Voted Cityvoter's second-place Best Boot Camp 2010, Fitness For Living fosters full-body fitness with outdoor exercise classes and certified personal trainers. The Fitness Boot Camp helps hone core strength, free cardiorespiratory canals, and tone tummies while sculpting muscles into the most loveable likenesses of ex-presidential candidates. Tough-love trainers and 10 to 15 campmates sweat to rotating workouts, which compile conglomerations of bounding, stair stepping, running, crunching, pulling, and pushing to tighten measly muscles. Check the schedule for twice-weekly class times.
The Yoga Boot Camp, led by sport-yoga and ACE-certified personal trainer Linzee Klinkenberg, fuses flowing Vinyasa-style yoga with Pilates to mollify mottled minds. Classes accommodate 10 to 15 and meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays to increase strength and endurance, enhance core stability, trim waistlines, and boost flexibility until benders are able to shuffle a pack of card with their feet. Toning techniques vary daily, employing dumbbells, resistance bands, and deep, long poses. Average muscle molders generally lose weight and clear their minds of old memorized Care Bears reruns after five weeks in the hands of Fitness For Living's health-honing gurus.
David Clair’s number one goal as the director and a trainer at FitLiv is to lead his patrons in having fun. He says, “If it is not fun, you won’t do it; you’ll always have an internal struggle staying motivated.” Here, the strong muscles, solid core, and slimmer waistline just happen to be a byproduct of having fun in the outdoors.
The trainers motivate clients to whip into shape with a series of smile-inducing fitness activities that often incorporate teamwork, including obstacle courses, games of soccer or basketball, and relay races. To further hone in on flexibility, strength, and balance training, campers complete a high-intensity regimen of CrossFit, TRX suspension, and Tabata training, interspersed with heaving sand bags and jumping rope. Alternatively, the Powerfit yoga camps take a blend of flowing Vinyasa-style yoga poses and Pilates techniques to the outdoors. The sessions focus on toning core muscles and building strength and flexibility. The trainers also help clients slim down with nutrition tips and meal-plan programs, and send out motivating emails that have nothing to do with money-hungry princes.
