Unlike summer camps, boot camps won't require you to put on a fundraising talent show to stop a nefarious computer company from turning Lake Cowabunga into its new industrial-waste depository. Team up to fight unfitness with today's Groupon: for $99, you get 10 boot camp classes (a $200 value) from Paradigm Sport in Aptos. Boot camp sessions are held at 9 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at Seascape Park, and at 9 a.m. on Saturdays at Seascape Beach.
The talented trainers at Paradigm Sport aim to boost physical prowess and to instill men and women of all ages and skill levels with focus, drive, and an athletic mindset. The one-hour, 20-person boot camp takes place in a soothing, beautiful setting, belied by its intense, fat-melting workouts that blend full-body muscle toning with calorie-burning cardio. Little rest between exercises challenges the fitness afeared to test their limits, and instructors and peers motivate one another to keep intensity high, muscles moving, and spandex in style. While a single boot camp session can light a fire under summer workout plans, a series of 10 gradually dialed-up workouts can put trainees well on their way to achieving fitness goals—whether it’s to lose weight, gain energy, or become strong enough to bend time and stop Saved By The Bell from going off the air.
