Sit-ups remain one of the best methods of reshaping the abdomen, second only to standing in front of a lit cannon. Enjoy explosive exercise with today's Groupon: for $47, you get a four-week fitness camp at North Bay Adventure Boot Camp (a $269 value). This Groupon is valid for the camps in Napa, Sonoma, and St. Helena.
Run by multi-talented athlete Jeff Larson and his team of physical trainers, North Bay Adventure Boot Camp helps slim down silhouettes with a blend of motivational fitness instruction and nutritional counseling. During the four-week camp, enrollees endure up to three intense sessions per week, during which instructors unleash a rotating lineup of sweat-inducing activities. After a warm-up routine to boost mobility and prevent injury, campers work to their best individual ability on muscle-toning kettlebell and weight-training exercises, outdoor hikes, and obstacle courses littered with hula hoops and black holes.
North Bay Adventure's schedules offer a mixture of full 60-minute and express 30-minute sessions available Monday through Friday, giving students the weekend to recharge their bionic legs. Each recruit should bring their own set of dumbbells (5-8 pounds for women, 10-15 pounds for men), an exercise mat, a foam roller, and plenty of water to every class, and trainers suggest extra accoutrements such as towels and gloves. A complimentary nutritional guide outlines basic dietary counsel, encouraging healthy eating habits without having to install barbed wire around junk-food cabinets.

Fitness Revolution owner Jeff Larson and his team of trainers know all about breaking a sweat. Each day, they challenge their students with fitness classes that string cardio and resistance workouts into a challenging chain of intense exercise. They also understand that water and electronics don't mix—instead of hosting their classes inside gyms filled with treadmills and stationary bikes, they stage their regimens outdoors, fortifying their workouts with rejuvenating sunrays and the encouraging shrieks of onlooking robins.
