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 $40, you get one month of boot-camp classes (up to three classes per week, a $199 value) at Scenic City Adventure Boot Camp, located in Hixson.
Owned by certified trainers Kevin and Kristen Harvey, Scenic City Adventure Boot Camp’s fun, challenging environment provides flab-fighting workouts and sweat-producing support to women and men of all age and ability levels. Tone triceps and hone glutes with the comprehensive, energy-inducing program that incorporates effective exercises, including core conditioning, jump roping, sport yoga, and obstacle courses. Have an out-of-gym experience with up to 12 classes (three per week) within the four-week period. The average camper’s stats show a 3%–5% reduction in body fat, 5-12 pounds lost, and a 43% increase in ability to crack peach pits on command. Break a sweat with outdoor workouts in the warmer months or at the fitness facility in the colder months. See the class calendar to schedule women-only or coed sessions. Though ample encouragement is provided, equipment is not, so be sure to bring a set of 5- or 8-pound hand weights and an exercise mat.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press named Kevin Harvey of Scenic City Adventure Boot Camp as a finalist for the Best Personal Trainer award in 2010. ChattanoogaHasFun reviewed Scenic City Adventure Boot Camp.
- Women of all fitness levels join the Boot Camp. Some are just getting started, and others are upping their work-outs. It seemed like the perfect mix for me, and, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice all the girls are to each other. – Rebecca Cruz, ChattanoogaHasFun
Scenic City Boot Camp
Initially established as a social outlet for aspiring exercise participants, Scenic City Boot Camp has since successfully coached hundreds of un-trained students of all ages prepare for major fitness events. During one-hour classes, which are held indoors and outdoors, weather permitting, a seasoned instructor guides students through an ever-changing routine of moves inspired by methods such as interval training, proper breathing, running, and recovery techniques. To keep campers accountable and motivated, all classes offer nutritional food plans, track their progress with before-and-after measurements, and occasionally test their reactions to sneaker-shaped inkblots.
