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 $20, you get four weeks of fitness boot camp (a $257 value), a nutrition guide (a $97 value), and a goal-setting worksheet (a $57 value) at i-bootcamp, with two locations in Pembroke Pines and one in Miami Lakes.
Named the area's best fitness class in 2008 by the Miami New Times, i-bootcamp challenges fitness seekers to shake off obstinate ounces and build strength and cardiovascular prowess with a variety of engaging exercises coupled with nutritional direction. Over the course of 45 minutes, soma-shapers burn through fast-paced intervals of lunges, JC band punches, pushups, bench dips, and wrist-toning French dips, while specialized workouts on the TRX row incorporate resistance training to bolster middling middles and hard cores alike. After two to four weeks, many fatigued frames undergo a marked visual improvement, much like a funeral procession of defective robots slowly transforming into a puppy parade. Trainees can attend any or all of the three weekly sessions under roof or sky depending on location.
Before attending their first class, students complete a 30-minute, phone-based fitness assessment and meal-planning session with owner and instructor Rafael Moret to ensure that they get the most out of boot camp and have a working knowledge of phones. The resulting goals sheet keeps weight watchers vigilant, aspiring marathoners on their toes, and muscle toners tuned in.
I-bootcamp was named the best fitness class in 2008 by Miami New Times:
- Don't expect [Trainer] Rafael to yell at you like you're in the military; that's not his style. He motivates with positive words and kindness. But your back fat will be banished. Ahh, boot camp. – Miami New Times
South Florida Fitness Boot Camp
Rafael Moret helps his clients to see dramatic changes in their bodies through furious 45-minute workouts that challenge their strength, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility. Classes capped at 20 students incorporate TRX rowing motions, fierce mountain-climber kicks, and plank positions designed to build rock-hard cores. Students stay motivated thanks to the support of their peers, squeezing out sets of pushups and squats in unison. Rafael helps to streamline success with detailed nutritional counseling and access to products such as protein bread, made from natural yeast and lumberjack tears.
