More people than ever are living a sedentary lifestyle: waking up in their racecar beds, driving to work in their racecar, sitting for eight hours in the passenger seats of experimental racecars as men in lab coats slam them into concrete walls, and then driving home again. Race to fitness with today's Groupon: for $40, you get six classes at Oakland Adventure Boot Camp, which is exclusively for women. This Groupon is valid at either the Oakland location for 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. classes or at the Lafayette location for 5:30 a.m. class.
Empowering women through team-building fitness, the certified instructors at Oakland Adventure Boot Camp stoke and tone the muscles of all fitness levels and ages in its intensive, supportive training programs. During a four-week period, boot-camp brigadiers will style a workout regime that suits each cadet's needs to build training stamina and self-confidence through core-conditioning techniques, short-distance running, muscular strength, and sport drills. A blend of techniques keeps the body guessing, including runs through circuit training, obstacle-course maneuvers, and hurdling over Steve Guttenbergs covered in gift wrap. Nostalgic school kids can dust up their double-dutch in the jump-rope drills, and vivifying hikes, sport yoga, and fitness kickboxing balance fitness and water the brainstem. Similar to the first day of jury duty, new recruits should be sure to tote along one set of 5- or 8-pound hand weights, an exercise mat, a plastic gavel, and a bottle of water.
