Although feeling the burn during a workout is generally a good sign, feeling the burn while sitting on the sofa means your sofa is in the fireplace. Engage in controlled, constructive body burning with today's Groupon: for $40, you get one month of indoor/outdoor boot camp at Heart In Sol in Greensboro (a $179 value).
The certified personal trainers at Heart In Sol bolster bodies and increase camaraderie with coed boot-camp programs. Like a bear emerging from hibernation, boot camps benefit from moving outdoors, but inclement weather can quickly flip that fact, which is why both environs play host to the waist-slimming activities. Campers of all fitness levels burn through intense and engaging drills ranging from high-energy plyometrics, calisthenics, and obstacle courses, to low-impact yoga, resistance training, and ab blasters. The muscle-magnifying coaches only take on a small number of clients with each group, maximizing one-on-one interaction between students and instructors. Fitness assessments and nutritional seminars supplement the body-building boot camp to bolster overall health, and team-sporting activities enhance group cohesion, increasing chances of winning full-contact trivia nights. Both morning and evening classes are available, with orientation at the studio, just minutes from the outdoor venues.
