Unlike summer camps, boot camps won't require you to put on a fundraising talent show to stop a nefarious computer company from turning Lake Cowabunga into its new industrial-waste depository. Team up to fight unfitness with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a two-week boot camp with nutrition seminar and grocery tour at Raising the Barr Fitness Boot Camp (a $124.50 value).
Raising the Barr guru Clint Barr leads the battle against sedentarianism with experience as a former A-advanced-level baseball player in the New York Yankees organization, and a masters degree in exercise science. Boot campers of all ages and fitness levels engage in a hodgepodge of athletic maneuvering to keep muscles as surprised as someone opening a refrigerator to find only a bowl of marbles. Class sizes of 20 or fewer ensure individualized attention, and boot-camp sergeants eschew militaristic yelling and college fight songs for firm, motivating encouragement.
Personalized camp experiences also include a nutritional seminar to complement gym work with kitchen work and a grocery trip to illuminate the aisles to diet success. After 14 days of stretching, performing pushups, running, jumping over mini hurdles, and more, boot loads may be lightened thanks to reduced levels of body fat. A schedule of classes are offered Monday–Thursday in the morning and evening, and also on the second and fourth Saturday of the month. Campers should arrive with preparedness kits that include running shoes, a fitness mat, and a water bottle. Those who enroll for a full month during their two-week Groupon session will receive a 10% discount on that enrollment fee.
