Getting in shape, much like speed-reading Russian literature, requires concentration and the strength to forge ahead through painful, protracted inner monologues. Forge ahead toward fitness with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a four-week martial-arts boot camp at Ocala Fighting Fit Boot Camp (a $119 value).
At Ocala Fighting Fit Boot Camp, fists and feet deliver knockout blows to calories during 12 boot-camp classes that draw on MMA and kickboxing combat techniques to whip thighs and abs into shape in a nonintimidating environment. During the four-week martial-arts boot camp, students of all fitness levels and skill sets entrust their bodies to certified instructors who orchestrate exercises that most efficaciously achieve results, and periodically motivate stragglers with photos of a skinny, timid, teenage Hulk. Grueling kettlebell lifts alternate with kickboxing drills and other interval and cardio exercises as students will their ways through three weekly sessions.
Though many of the workout techniques trace their roots back to the ring or battlefield, students need not worry about facing real-life fighters or referees speaking another language, and can focus instead on evicting fat cells that have overstayed their welcome. Emphatic shouts and hi-yahs resonate throughout Ocala Fighting Fit’s expansive studio as small groups take to the hardwood floors for morning and evening classes.
