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 $47, you get one month of unlimited boot-camp classes (a $139 value) and a nutritional counseling session (a $49 value) at Glatter Fitness (a $188 total value).
Personal trainer and applied-health-science major Michael Glatter hosts a boot-camp program geared toward leading guests to healthier lifestyles. Manufacturing sweat through traditional drills and individual support for each participant, the month of energetic boot-camp sessions helps melt away fat and build strong muscle, self-confidence, and bear-tackling ability. Groups of 5–30 exercisers decimate social-loafing theory as communal camaraderie keeps everyone's limbs moving and mouths puffing through circuits of sit-ups, squats, and planks. Workout docents raise fitness levels with the sun in early-morning classes to spike students' energy for the rest of the day, as well as evening classes to complement work schedules and twilight jogging addictions.
Lapsed members occasionally receive motivating phone calls to spur them back to class, helping keep every student accountable and dedicated to their cumulative progress. A nutrition-counseling session helps augment muscle-building results with a more nutritionally complete and health-supporting diet that features only marginal amounts of dorito pizza.
Michael Glatter has appraised fitness from many different perspectives—as an athlete on a wrestling team, as a competitor in power-lifting meets, as an Applied Health Science student in a college classroom, and as a personal trainer. He brings his extensive athletic experience to Glatter Fitness, pulling from his knowledge of kinesiology and expertise in various training methods to craft workouts designed to slim physiques and tone muscles. His constantly varied boot-camp workouts are packed with strength-training and cardiovascular exercises such as kettlebell swings, lunges, and mountain-climbers.
