Unlike summer camps, boot camps won't require you to put on a fundraising talent show to stop a nefarious computer company from turning Lake Cowabunga into its new industrial-waste depository. Team up to fight unfitness with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a four-week Best! Me boot camp from Fitness Inspiration! Inc. (a $240 value).
Fitness Inspiration! Inc. replaces tired workout routines with an adult recess, inciting riotous muscles into a sweat-induced frenzy with group classes structured to meet participants' individual fitness goals. Certified fitness trainer Becca Marino trains iron-pumpers three times a week with dynamic and functional 60-minute sessions. A pre- and post-boot camp fitness assessment tracks improvement, and nutrition and wellness handouts help give lifestyles a total makeover. Held at various locations at Shelby Farms Park, Best! Me boot camp injects fresh air into heaving lungs, creating the ideal recipe to tone muscles, improve flexibility and endurance, and bolster Rubik’s cube-solving skills.
Each class doubles as a support group of sorts, with prizes, parties, awards, and occasional confessions of Post-it–note larceny. Participants stay motivated with weekly inspirational emails from Coach Becca, who makes herself available for immediate feedback following each session. Participants can choose from a variety of morning and evening sessions; check the schedule for times. Parents can also take advantage of childcare, available during some classes.
Becca Marino fought an eating disorder for 13 years before enlisting in a six-month recovery program. During this time, mentors surrounded and supported her. Thanks to their encouragement, she broke free of the eating disorder and nourished a desire to help others do the same. Marino marched off to earn a bachelor's in health, fitness, and recreational resources, specializing in exercise science. Then, she racked up personal training certifications to start her career in fitness. But even as she went to work in gyms, wellness centers, and other fitness facilities, she felt as if she couldn't help people the way she wanted to.
In 2009, she broke down the barriers that kept her from inspiring others and opened Fitness Inspiration!. She and her team promote mindsets and beliefs that facilitate external action. This positive approach to physical and mental transformation manifests itself in every workout, from personal and small-group training sessions to group classes and boot camps. Teachers also host wellness workshops and outreach events that nourish self-worth and awaken a desire for participants to treat their bodies like temples or shrines to JTT.
Becca's powerful positive methodologies won her a 2012 Natural Memphis award for Best Personal Trainer, and her Best Me! boot-camp program was awarded the title of Best Natural Body Care Program.
