Boot camps are a quick way to get in shape for upcoming marathons or adrenaline-pumping prison escapes. Jump the fence with today's Groupon: for $38, you get three weeks of boot-camp classes at Pinnacle Performance and Fitness plus a 30-minute consultation with a personal trainer and a customized 21-day meal plan by a registered dietitian (a $179 value).
Pinnacle's boot-camp classes aim for a dropped dress or pant size in 21 days—a belt-based investment that can lead to a positive, lifelong impact on students' health. Each 30-minute boot-camp class incorporates a variety of fun, calorie-burning techniques with variations to accommodate every fitness level, from beginning boot campers to absolute athletes. Classes are held three times per week, according to a three-weeks-on, one-week-off schedule. The boot camp also includes a personal-trainer consultation to help students target areas in need of improvement, as well as a customized 21-day meal plan to help take the uncertainty out of dietary requirements and maximize the program's effectiveness.
NBC6 Corpus Christi covered Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camps' Haiti relief efforts and fundraising for pediatric brain cancer. Caller-Times columnist Denise Malan covered her experience with Pinnacle Fitness Boot Camps:
- The classes are 30 minutes each of exercises such as squats, push ups, lunges, planks and other exercises that I can’t even describe. Farrell demonstrates three levels of each exercise at the beginning of class. Level 1 is the easiest. Level 3 is insane. – Denise Malan, Caller-Times

For Adam Farrell, college wasn’t a time of personal enrichment, but of unhealthy living. Once the young undergraduate student became dissatisfied with the party lifestyle he was leading in college, he began exercising regularly. He found that, unlike the quickly dissipating pleasures of pizza dinners and games of donut-glaze pong, exercise helped him cultivate the overall happiness and confidence he sought. He soon realized that he had both a passion and knack for personal training.
Ten years later, Farrell is a certified strength and conditioning specialist, a well-established personal trainer, and the owner of his own fitness facility. Aided by a staff of fellow fitness aficionados, he conducts boot-camp programs and athletic-performance-enhancement camps, leading high-intensity, circuit-style workouts that aim to slim physiques, tone muscles, and boost metabolisms. The trainers scale these workouts to accommodate clients of all athletic abilities and accommodate restrictive issues, including injuries and deep-seated fears of working out in mismatched gym socks.
