Since the invention of cars and online dating, humans have needed extra motivation to marshal muscles into shape. Avoid the temptation of driving a car to work or pulling it with your teeth by shaping up with today’s Groupon: for $49, new clients get a six-week boot camp, pre- and postcamp fitness assessments, a nutrition plan, and a shopping guide at Pittsburgh Fit Body Boot Camp in Wildwood (a $348 value).
The certified personal trainers of the Fit Body Boot Camps are half drill sergeant, half high-school football coach, half mathematician, and all expert. After a preclass fitness body assessment, the instructor and group atmosphere combine to encourage trainees of all levels to push past fitness thresholds and recurring images of trucks chasing them. Students sweat through an ever-changing arsenal of training itineraries that work on building muscle, maintaining healthy cardio levels, and dropping pounds in a minimal time period (a $249 value for six weeks). The sessions are fun and energetic, sparking positive memories of slender past summers riding exercise bikes down the boulevards and swimming through medicine-ball pits.
In addition to the fortifying classes, a nutrition plan (a $25 value), a healthy-shopping guide (a $25 value), and a postclass fitness assessment help flab fighters keep lost pounds unfound by fusing fitness regimens with their whims in the kitchen.
Though the term “boot camp” may conjure images of aggressive drill sergeants barking orders as their recruits struggle through grueling tasks, JM Fitness sessions are much the opposite. Their enthusiastic trainers motivate patrons in indoor boot-camp classes, issuing positive reinforcement as they work together to burn calories and excess fat through challenging, but not defeating, exercises. Each 35 minute session is designed to promote fat loss with a varied routine of interval training that may involve weightlifting, push-ups, sit-ups, and plyometrics. Many activities require participants to band together to tackle obstacles, bolstering a sense of support and camaraderie. Instructors then lead exercisers in a cool down with stretching, leaving them more limber than a linguini noodle basking in a Jacuzzi.
