What You'll Get
Without goals, no one would unicycle the Appalachian Trail or train a flock of carrier pigeons to deliver meat pies to unsuspecting haberdashers. Today's Groupon to Memphis Adventure Boot Camp for Women helps you achieve myriad goals with a fitness trainer's expertise and motivation: for $49, you get four weeks of boot-camp classes (up to five classes per week), held outdoors at 1203 Ridgeway Road, weather permitting (a $197 value).
Led by certified Adventure Fitness trainer Dexter Tenison, MSS, Memphis Adventure Boot Camp for Women combines fitness training, nutritional counseling, and professionally projected "hip hip hoorays" to help women achieve their health goals. The boot camp's intensive outdoor exercises include core conditioning, short-distance running, jumping rope, circuit training, hiking, sport yoga, kickboxing, Pilates, sport drills, and obstacle courses. All exercises can be modified to accommodate any level of physical fitness, ensuring participants walk away with only good sorts of aches and pains. As your four-week session progresses, the 60-minute workouts will increase in difficulty, providing a continuous challenge and opportunities to advance. Like a margarine knife to a stick of butter, boot camp will carve your body into a supple figurine with improved self-confidence and lower caloric content over the course of one month.
Boot-camp classes are held Monday through Friday, starting promptly at 5:30 a.m., 8:00 a.m., 5:15 p.m., and 6:15 p.m. Once you've registered with Memphis Adventure Boot Camp for Women, you can attend up to five classes a week for the included four consecutive weeks. Participants are advised to bring their own exercise mat, set of small hand weights (5–8 pounds), water bottle, and running shoes.

About Memphis Adventure Boot Camp
Dexter Tenison knows how to lose weight. Weighing nearly 300 pounds after college, Tenison decided it was time to make a change. Throwing himself into martial arts and personal training, he discovered a healthier lifestyle that he realized was inspiring others to reach their own goals. With that, he decided to open Memphis Adventure Boot Camp. Voted Best Health Club by Memphis Most in 2011 and 2103, Tenison’s all-female boot camps combine the group vibe he found in his martial-arts classes with the personal attention and drastic results from personal training. Camps span several weeks at a time, aiming to whip frames into shape with ever-changing fitness regimes that spice up traditional exercise, such as jogging and resistance training, with fresh add-ins, including obstacle courses, lunging, and building body bridges across quicksand. To cater to all conditioning levels, every workout is easily modifiable, and no participants will ever be pushed to overexert themselves.
