If humans didn’t exercise, pink spandex would be relegated to the purposes for which the military originally developed it: flinging cannonballs and allowing soldiers to blend in during battles amid flamingoes.

Hardcore Fitness Boot Camp’s certified personal trainers, Larry Nolan and Nadia Lopez, who were voted 2011’s Best Personal Trainers on the Los Angeles Hotlist, help clients to improve bodies by leading 60-minute boot-camp sessions and tailoring dietary tips. The cross-training classes commence with a warm-up of limbering stretches, then marshal up to 30 participants for a medley of cardiovascular, strength, and agility exercises. Suspension equipment hoists limbs skyward during gravity-flouting resistance moves, and kickboxing jabs train feet to punch when hands are busy sketching a foe’s hurtful caricature. While teetering atop stability balls, class participants can tighten their cores and sharpen their focus before performing Olympic weight lifts to set muscle groups afire.
Among the many other salutary activities the class engages students in, partner drills and obstacle courses stand out for their heart-healthy, teamwork-promoting nature. Instructors switch up the boot-camp routine each day, guarding against both physical and mental boredom and sharpening focus more effectively than a pop chemistry quiz administered during a drivers-ed road test. In addition to alfresco reps, custom nutrition tips steer guests toward trim and healthy tummies. A detailed grocery list preps shoppers to follow recommended recipes at home, and guidelines for supplement use grant easier access to vitamins and minerals than blending aquarium pebbles into smoothies.
Though Hardcore Fitness Boot Camp sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Hardcore Fitness Boot Camp
What does it take to make a fitness class hardcore? At Hardcore Fitness Boot Camp, the answer is an intense, 60-minute workout held during the work week, since treadmills often refuse to work on the weekends. Instructors start with static stretching and other warm-ups before explaining the proper technique for exercises with barbells, kettlebells, treadmills, and stationary cycles. They might also have groups run a few miles, though exercisers can never quite be sure what to expect. Instructors constantly change the format of the workout from day to day to avoid fitness plateaus. In addition to this signature boot-camp class, the fitness instructors lead other classes such as Cardio Kickbox Fusion.
