The certified trainers at Norman's Biggest Loser Boot Camp help trim inches and train fledgling martial artists in a supportive, motivational environment. Those looking to reach fitness goals while gaining self-defense skills can explore tae kwon do to improve health and remind smug bookshelves that their days are numbered. As a nonaggressive martial art, tae kwon do emphasizes self-discipline, self-confidence, and self-respect through sparring, board breaking, and forms. An included uniform outfits neophyte martial artists.
Over the course of one hour, boot campers are immersed in an intense circuit routine divided into minute-long increments, whirling like a perspiration-powered teacup ride through cardio, weight training, yoga, and Pilates stations. With strength as the primary focus, stubborn pounds fall away and flexibility returns to sinewy muscles, resulting in a reported 8-inch average loss in the first three weeks. The first-, third-, and last-week mark milestones where clients measure their weight and celebrate their successes in a friendly class atmosphere free from yelling, berating, and floggings with partially thawed squid.
