Boot camps apply military concepts to daily life, as do dance parties set to Morse code and tanks converted into school buses. Declassify your abs with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a four-week training program (unlimited sessions per week) from Petaluma Adventure Boot Camp (up to a $265 value). Sessions take place at Sonoma Mountain Elementary School and New Life Christian Fellowship; check the schedule for upcoming sessions.
Experienced trainer Jayme Larson and a talented team of fitness wizards lead students through strength and conditioning exercises and cardio activities designed to help improve health, shed pounds, and build camaraderie. The four week course, which welcomes students of both genders and all health and skill levels, begins with a precamp evaluation, in which the staff introduces participants to the program, reviews medical histories, and takes students’ measurements to track progress and begin creating life-sized sand scupltures. Thrice-weekly classes prompt pupils to jump rope, traverse obstacle courses, run short distances, firm up cores, and partake in other strength- and health-building exercises such as sport yoga, pilates, and kickboxing imaginary ice-cream trucks. A one-hour nutrition seminar encourages fit feasts, and a registered dietician helps craft individualized meal plans to aid in the body-shaping quest.
Classes take place several times a day, Monday–Friday, and this Groupon is good for unlimited sessions per week of muscle manuevering. The list of necessary survival gear includes an exercise mat, set of small hand weights, water bottle, running shoes, and a coat rack on which to hang lost dress and pants sizes.
Though Petaluma Adventure Boot Camp sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Fitness Revolution Petaluma
Standard gyms let members loose in rooms full of fancy exercise equipment, where they're free to choose the variety and intensity of their workouts. Unfortunately, they're also free to make mistakes without even knowing it, which can lead to injuries and stunted fitness goals. That's why Fitness Revolution Petaluma centers on a different fitness philosophy: instead of rooms full of equipment, they have a facility full of fitness professionals who lead programs tailored to members' current fitness levels. Whether in group training sessions, yoga, youth sports performance, or their variety of specialty workshops, the experts rely on simple equipment and exercises that mimic the body's natural movements to help members reach goals faster than a soccer player with rocket cleats.
