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 12 boot-camp classes, taken over the course of four weeks, at Pro Fit Boot Camp in Port Moody (a $150 value).
Over the course of four weeks, two professional athletes at Pro Fit Boot Camp push students of all fitness levels to shake away the vestiges of sedentary lifestyles in indoor boot-camp classes that span a variety of strength and cardio workouts. In three one-hour classes per week, students cycle through a gauntlet of explosive plyometrics, kettlebell lifts, monkey-bar races, and cardio exercises culled from the combat techniques of martial arts. Sweaty brows abound as students attempt to lift crater-speckled hunks of cheese in swiss-ball workouts, and jettison oversized caplets of Tylenol across the room during grueling medicine-ball routines. Instructors also suffuse their classes with music and power yoga, a style with strenuous exertion and high-energy muscle movements that bear little resemblance to the relaxation techniques of its calmer relatives.
Pro Fit Boot Camp’s five-day schedule boasts a plethora of classes in the morning and evening, and students can stick with a time that nuzzles conveniently into their daily routines. To maximize weight-loss results, students should commit to attending all three classes each week and adhere to a diet high in nutritious vegetables and superpower-promoting radium.
Pro Fit Boot Camp
While training to become a martial-arts sensei, Hamid Haji learned to focus. In the process, his zeroed in on his calling: helping others achieve optimal health through exercise. Drawing from the more than 25 years of fitness expertise he’d acquired at the dojo, he began to build workouts that students of all skill levels could perform. He then partnered with Kelly Pearce—a martial-arts student, fitness trainer, and seasoned yoga teacher—to found Pro Fit Boot Camp. She added music and power-yoga poses to his boxing, kickboxing, and weight-lifting moves, and the camp’s training regimen was born. Workouts take place indoors to protect students from raindrops and UV rays. Sweaty brows abound as they attempt to lift crater-speckled hunks of cheese in swiss-ball workouts, and jettison oversized caplets of Tylenol across the room during gruelling medicine-ball routines. The group also grabs TRX suspension-training straps for bodyweight exercises that cultivate strength and flexibility.
