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 today's Groupon: for $20, you get four passes for a boot-camp class from Mirror Image Lifestyle Fitness at Studio Rue in Webster Groves (a $60 value). Buyers that use all four passes within one month will receive one bonus class.
Kirsten Stevens, a licensed nurse, ACE-certified personal trainer, and certified kettlebell instructor, equips exercisers with motivation and an energizing menu of physical challenges at Monday–Saturday boot camps. To sculpt physiques into svelte shapes, the workout pairs muscle-toning resistance training with calorie-toasting plyometrics such as sprinting, skipping, and hurling giant cupcakes into outer space. Students can pummel away lingering self-doubt with cardio-kickboxing moves that raise efficiently heart rates. Intervals of calisthenics build strength and flexibility with bends, twists, and exercises that use participants’ own bodies as workout weights. Weekday classes take place indoors and outdoors, at sunrise (5:45 a.m.) and sundown (5:45 p.m.), allowing students to admire the colorful solar rays and convert carbon dioxide into oxygen.
