A strong man wrestles you to the ground to show off; a stronger man boosts your self-esteem and then accidentally breaks three of your ribs with a supportive hug. Learn the tenets of both strength and community with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a four-week Body Blast boot-camp package, which includes a 30-day nutrition guide, at motivFit (a $199 value). Today's deal is valid at motivFit locations in Ventura, Agoura Hills, and Thousand Oaks.
The team of trainers at motivFit, along with fellow co-founders Carrie and Jeff Morgan, ousts the militaristic attitude of regular boot camps, replacing negative reinforcement with positive motivation and the occasional cupcake on a stick. The Body Blast Challenge encompasses both food and fitness plans for exercisers of all stripes, as all trainers hold certifications that enable them to scale routines to new and seasoned athletes between the ages of 16 and 65. Each one-hour session coalesces strength, cardio, flexibility, core, and balance training, fortifying bodies from top to bottom without encasing them in iron. Clients experience outdoor elements in each class as trainers pull from an arsenal of exercises that includes partner and team drills, high-intensity aerobics, trail runs, hikes, and beach workouts. Patrons should provide their own mat, towel, dumbbells (5–8 lbs. for women, 10–12 lbs. for men), and water bottle for each session, and check each location's website for class schedules.
motivFit facilitates forward motion in physical fitness by also equipping each exerciser with a 30-day nutrition plan. The menu includes a trove of tasty, health-conscious recipes and corresponding grocery lists, as well as a breakdown of the amount of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats needed for optimal workouts and optimum weight-loss. The company also stores nutrition information in an online database as a quick resource for tech-savvy patrons or desktop PCs self-conscious since the release of slimmer tablet models.
A successful exercise regimen involves just as much inspiration as perspiration, according to the certified trainers who helm motivFit. Their fitness and nutrition programs don't just teach participants to count and burn calories; they jump-start lives by pairing goal-focused coaching with group accountability. Designed with both fun and safety in mind, challenging outdoor workouts empower participants to make exercise a part of their daily routine. Aerobics and trail runs torch calories instantly, and weightlifting and resistance training rally the metabolism by building lean muscle mass. Group activities such as relay races build camaraderie, transforming participants into teams that motivate one another. The workouts can be tailored to any fitness level, allowing new exercisers and elite athletes to train side by side. As pounds and inches melt away, confidence grows and self-esteem blooms as boldly as a tulip watered with Buzz Aldrin's joyful tears. Nutrition resources such as recipes and meal plans complement the workouts, helping participants forge healthy lifestyles for the long haul.
