The calorie-crushing drill sergeants of Psychosomatic Fitness motivate fatigued physiques in challenging and fun boot camp classes. Kids ages 9–15 can burn off Friday night s'more binges during one-hour Saturday morning boot camp classes. The fun, active boot camps offer cardiovascular and strength training, and focus on mobility, stability, flexibility, and the ability to sing the alphabet backwards while completing a rope course on one's hands. Four weeks of unlimited adult boot camp grant muscle-makers access to all Monday–Friday indoor and outdoor classes. Each lipid-liquidating session starts with stretches and warm-ups, which get hearts racing faster than defibrillator step-aerobics. Then, trainers lead groups of 10 to 20 through a smorgasbord of toning tasks using dumbbells and resistance bands, and finish up the workout with agility drills and core work. A 42-day meal plan guides weight-loss warriors through the nutritional wilderness, helping them reach their goals and avoid diet shakes made from chocolate-flavored cardboard.
Psychosomatic Fitness values variation in its exercises, as evidenced by the gym's whiteboard that lists each day's unique workout rather than a decree banning everything but jumping jacks. In an area equipped with mats, free weights, and suspension-training equipment, participants work through regimens that may include everything from squats and push-ups to wall sits. There's variety in the types of training available as well—these include one-on-one personal training along with boot camps and group-training sessions.
