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 $50, you get one month of boot-camp classes at PT Fitness (a $179 value). PT Fitness boot camps for July meet on Highland Park Drive and Overton Park Drive. Both camps run on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from July 5 to July 29. Classes on Highland Park Drive (Cityview/Bellaire) are for women only and begin at 5:30 a.m., while the Overton Park Drive (Tanglewood) boot camp offers two coed classes that start at 8:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
PT Fitness boot camp incorporates challenging circuit workouts to help clients of all fitness levels lose weight, increase muscle tone, and improve overall health. During each hour-long session, an experienced instructor keeps you motivated through a diverse and challenging regimen of cardio, cement foot pounding, strength training, pigeon punching, and agility exercises. Each class is a different mix of total body workouts designed to be difficult and fun, with visible results.
Classes are held outdoors, so be prepared to defend yourself against surprise elements like wind, rain, and elusive sasquats. Be sure to wear comfortable sneakers and bring an exercise mat, towel, and small hand weights (3–5 lbs.). Get your one and only body in shape for the upcoming season of life you've been randomly chosen to spearhead. Call ahead to reserve your spot in class.
Must be 18 or older or accompanied by a parent. Classes are subject to availability.

PT Fitness Bootcamp
For most of his life, Ron Green exercised and tried to eat right—a Herculean task, working as he did in the demanding restaurant business. Try as he might, he couldn't get down to a healthy weight. So he decided to hire a personal trainer—and for the first time, he felt himself outrunning the Sisyphean treadmill and inching closer and closer to his goals. The experience so inspired him that he decided to become a trainer himself to help others break out of holding patterns, and deposit their energy into exercises that gave them a return on their investment. Now, certified by the National Academy of Sports, he leads a team of trainers in helping clients through athletic, personal, and group training.
In the signature boot-camp classes, they aim at helping campers lose body fat while sculpting functional muscles, unlike glam muscles only good for filling out sleeves or wowing the admissions board at Harvard. The trainers also supplement sport-specific training, one-on-one sessions, or group training with nutritional guidance to help clients reach their goals quickly.
