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 $35, you get a seven-class punch card for women's kick-fit boot camp at McKenzie Martial Arts (a $70 value).
McKenzie Martial Arts pushes, crunches, and pummels women of all ages and backgrounds into stronger, leaner bodies with rock-hard self-confidence through professional martial-arts training. The women's kick-fit boot-camp class fuses complementary disciplines such as Thai boxing, Western boxing, and other techniques to whip women of all skill levels into fighting shape. Each blood-pumping cardio workout can torch up to 900 calories and tones every major muscle group with intense punching-bag kicking, punching, and tickling drills. Unlike neon-spandex-riddled jazzercise classes at the local gym, kick-fit boot camp imparts real self-defense techniques designed to keep women safe with or without their boxing gloves.
Kick-fit boot-camp classes run Tuesday and Thursday and this Groupon is also valid for the Saturday women's self-defense class, accommodating working professionals, busy mothers, and early rising vampires.
McKenzie Martial Arts
Nowadays, the term “martial arts” conjures up images of flashy Hollywood kicks, championship trophies, and prismatic collections of ranked belts. Many often forget, however, that the martial arts are tools for self-defense. The instructors at McKenzie Martial Arts eschew the glamour and instead focus on teaching students how to protect themselves, encouraging participation from the entire family. They lead kids, teens, and adults through a range of disciplines, including Bruce Lee’s street-level jeet kune do, Gracie jujitsu, and weapon-centric Filipino kali and escrima. During each lesson, they’ll equip students with gloves and padded weapons and let them put their newfound skills to use in a ring or mat-covered training room. Family members, meanwhile, can watch their kin square off by meditating to the point of omnipresence or simply nabbing a spot in the comfortable viewing area.
