Within every human body lie untapped reservoirs of strength, which can be accessed through hard work, determination, and a hatch just above the navel. Dip into a fountain of fortitude with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get 10 fitness boot-camp classes over a three-month period from your start date at Staten Island Fitness Bootcamp (a $160 value). Classes are held outdoors on the South Beach Boardwalk May–October or in inclement weather and from November–April at Diforte Gym on Hylan Boulevard.
Staten Island Fitness Boot Camp shifts idling body engines into energy-boosting gear with 50-minute motivational workouts three days a week. Designed to push exercisers further than they would normally push themselves, the calorie-burning conferences blend strength, cardio, and agility exercises with plenty of social support from the group and encouraging cheers from overhead seagulls. Anatomies engage in a mix of rope jumping, running, and medicine-ball work to incinerate fat, bolster metabolism, and build physical and mental strength. Groupon holders can choose 10 classes from any of the schedule's morning and evening slots, fitting neatly into the spaces between recurring dreams about playing jai alai with U2.
