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 $29, you get five boot-camp classes (up to a $100 value) and a waived enrollment fee at Survival Fitness in Carmel.
Survival Fitness, which took home 2010 Best Gym on TheIndyChannel.com A-List reader contest, pumps up hearts and abs with challenging sweat sessions. During each workout, the knowledgeable instructors at Survival Fitness will motivate boot campers of all fitness levels to perform a quick, intense workout, which includes cardio, resistance training, throwing bags of rice onto pickup truck beds, and plyometric exercises. Since each class focuses on different muscle groups, bodies will be constantly challenged for a more effective workout and more dramatic fitness gains. Students should witness a trimmer figure, racier metabolism, and ripe muscle farm. Classes are held six days a week mornings and evenings; check the schedule online for a full listing.
Survival Fitness Gym
It’s hard to imagine a trainer more dedicated to fitness than Josh Kuklak, the owner of Survival Fitness Gym. An ACE-certified personal trainer, Josh holds state records in powerlifting on the bench-press and deadlift platforms, and has also competed in hockey, tennis, karate, and weight training. Along with Diana Fisbeck, also an ACE-certified trainer, he leads boot camp-style workouts that call upon muscle confusion—through constantly varied routines—to promote building strength and melting fat.
Their boot camps fuse cardio, resistance training, and plyometrics into workouts that change every day to prevent workout burnout. Leaving treadmills and weight machines behind, the sessions incorporate a slew of nontraditional fitness equipment. Students might flip oversize tires and hang from gymnastics rings one day, and then heave sledgehammers and box heavy bags until they cry uncle the next. Their basic-training class focuses on core work and endurance, and strength training blends elements of powerlifting, bodybuilding, and functional training to pack on muscle and annihilate fat. The fitness duo also leads personal-training sessions, motivating clients to reach their goals and harmonizing with them during workout songs.
