$59 for a Four-Week Fitness Boot Camp to Raise Money for Parkinson's Disease Research ($120 Value)
An experienced trainer heads up these group sessions, which employ floor routines, ropes, chains, squats, and other exercises to build strength and torch calories. Clients attend 60-minute classes three times per week; classes start at 5:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. Monday–Saturday. The proceeds from the boot camp go to a charity to research Parkinson's disease.
The professional trainers at Grit Gym take a no-nonsense approach to their job: they want to get athletes into peak physical form and have fun while doing so. Before starting personal-training sessions, a staff member assesses each individual's condition by checking their mobility and taking note of their fitness goals. Then, the trainers devise a tailored workout regimen that focuses on building your personal strengths; they'll work on giving you explosive energy if you're a linebacker or help you achieve long-distance stamina if you must run on a hamster wheel to power your house. Above all, the training team emphasizes a positive attitude and a sense of determination during classes and boot camps—instructors are quick to dish out positive feedback and constant support to keep clients motivated.
