Boot camps are a quick way to get in shape for upcoming marathons or adrenaline-pumping prison escapes. Jump the fence with today's Groupon: for $59, you get one month of boot-camp fitness (14 classes) at GetYouInShape.com (a $225 value).

GetYouInShape.com boot camps eschew the military-style intensity of their namesake for a more encouraging environment, helping participants reach their fitness goals and develop positive habits for life. The program includes individual lifestyle advice as well as nutrition seminars, tips for workouts on the off-days, and tools such as calendars, handbooks, and nutritional journals. Founder and former professional athlete Brad Linder has designed an outdoor fitness regimen fueled by camaraderie and frequent high-fives, handpicking a staff of certified trainers to ensure that those looking to shed weight, gain tone, and improve overall robustness achieve their goals without compromise or ill-gotten unicorn elixirs.
- The trainers are thorough and constantly explain the proper techniqes [sic] just to instill the mindset that form is critical to achieve maximum results. I really like the flexibility of the schedule since it's more conducive to success. – Dory, Yahoo! Local
- I like Brad because he provides an atomsphere [sic] that makes working out fun and enjoyable and he is always encouraging. This is by far the best training experience I have had. – A Google Mapper on 4/19/2009
Get You In Shape
Brad Linder is something of an authority on physical fitness. As a younger man, he played professional basketball. Later, he studied the workings of the body while earning his masters in health, kinesiology, and sports studies. Along with his wife, Cynthia, Brad has not only penned the Amazon bestseller, Three Steps to Your Best Body in Record Time, but has also been featured on The Doctors for their successful boot-camp program.
Their hand-selected staff of certified personal trainers helps them lead the 60-minute group sessions that are chock-full of strength-training and cardio drills. To supplement the exercises, the team offers nutritional guidance, stokes the flames of willpower with motivational emails, and helps clients avoid temptation by disguising themselves as construction workers and rerouting ice cream trucks.
Get You In Shape also provides one-on-one personal training sessions, as well as corporate wellness programs that keep office personnel from succumbing to the snares of a sedentary lifestyle. When not helping clients shed pounds, Get YOU in Shape donates time and money to various charitable organizations, such as Christian Community Action, Wounded Warriors, and Special Olympics.
