Taking advantage of Houston’s outdoor spaces, trainers coach classes of students into heavy sweats, combining cardio and bodyweight resistance exercises with light free-weight lifting. Students should provide a towel, a set of 5- to 12-pound weights, and running shoes for themselves. Over time, the exercises promote weight loss, improved posture, and higher energy levels throughout the day.

Houston Adventure Boot Camp
Karen Mones's passion for fitness began at a young age, exercising to Jane Fonda videos with her mother. She went on to play softball, earn her bachelor's in exercise and sports science, and obtain six instructor certifications in everything from yoga to strength training. She founded Houston Adventure Boot Camp to share her knowledge and passion for fitness with as many people as possible.
She and her trainers create different regimens each day, taking advantage of the city's natural spaces and natural forces to enhance their workouts. They challenge gravity by having students lift their own bodyweight or free weights. Students plow through the heaviest friction the air can throw at them in sprints, and they hold up under constant pressure from the sun to nap in the middle of a field.
