Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today's Groupon: for $19, you get entry in the 21-Day Drop a Jean Size Challenge and Nutrition Plan with Mike Salvietti from Rock Your Body Boot Camp in New Hyde Park (a $147 value).
Unrelentingly upbeat fitness-smith Mike Salvietti of Rock Your Body Bootcamps collaborates with registered dietitian Jayson Hunter to forge three-week drop-a-jean-size meal plans. The sustainable, effective nutrition strategy prescribes a balanced daily intake of meat, veggies, fruits, and carbs, and the three-a-week workouts combine strength training, cardio, and routines that potentially boost metabolism. The group workouts foster a sense of camaraderie and accountability, and this high-energy approach provides a more honest means of reducing clothing size than purchasing onesies from a baby store. Boot camps are held Monday–Saturday. Before-and-after measurements help to track the progress of weight loss and the development of any superhero capes.
Rock Your Body Boot Camp
There's a ritual to the boot-camp sessions that nationally certified personal trainer Mike Salvietti leads online six days a week. After spending about 10 minutes running through warm-ups to increase joint mobility, participants plow through up to 30 minutes of metabolic resistance training. Each 45- to 55-minute session wraps up with thorough stretching to minimize soreness and recovery time. The exercises work quickly, reducing body fat, toning muscles, and speeding up metabolism in as little as six sessions spread over two weeks. They're easy to jump into, too; boot-campers only need to bring running shoes, water, and a towel they can twist around their head and spin like a helicopter.
