Boot camps apply military concepts to daily life, as do dance parties set to Morse code and tanks converted into school buses. Declassify your abs with this Groupon.
$19 for 12 Boot-Camp Classes ($144 Value)
Trainers hold boot-camp classes six days a week, allowing a maximum of 30 students to ensure they can provide personalized attention. As upbeat music sets an energetic tone for class, they'll demonstrate maneuvers and scale routines that are too difficult for fledgling boot-campers. Alongside in-class training, clients can unlock a trove of online resources to further facilitate fitness, including a scheduling widget to plan future classes and a nutrition journal in which to confide true feelings about Brussels sprouts. See the full class schedule.
Fox River Fitness Boot Camp
Fox River Fitness Boot Camp’s instructors Joel Zeiner and Alicia Doerr—endowed with NETA and NSCA personal trainer certifications, respectively—specialize in reintroducing physical activity to those who have long done without. On orientation day for new students, they'll record a confidential health history, take measurements, and set goals designed to aid students in tracking their progress. They equip each attendee with all the accessories and gear needed for each class, meaning that trainees need only bring comfortable clothes in which to move and sweat.
Inspire Fitness Studio—the fitness center used for the boot camp—boasts ultra-modern yet unintimidating confines that aim to appeal to the peepers while comforting new clients. Exposed golden-brick walls warm up the ceiling’s network of industrial piping, while floor-to-ceiling windows reveal picturesque views of the river and synchronized parasailors.
