Strength, the workhorse of physical existence, is an ethereal substance found only in classical sculptures, cyborg technology, and the verbal inspirations whispered by boot-camp gurus. Today’s Groupon unlocks the classical and futuristic whispers: for $40, you get four weeks of unlimited fitness classes from Texas Boot Camp (up to a $180 value for new clients, up to $90 for existing). Today's deal is valid at six locations in the Houston area, with morning and evening sessions. See the sidebar for a list of locations and times.
At Texas Boot Camp, the enemy is predictability. Three days a week (two days for Beginner Boot Camp), your instructors will throw down a fresh guerrilla-ambush worth of challenges for your muscles and your brain, fueling constant gains and keeping you engaged. Over the course of the session, you'll run, jump, lift weights, slam out push-ups and chin-ups, chase chickens, punch slabs of beef, and end with a live-crocodile wrestle. In the heat of your workout, you'll sweat out weakness, fear, and monosodium glutamate while beginning to gain the functional, unsurpassed strength of a body in fluid, powerful motion.
Texas Boot Camp classes are designed for people of all fitness levels and goals. The friendly instructors will break down the moves and make sure you complete each exercise for optimal safety and effectiveness. Working out with others motivates you to increase your effort level, ultimately decreasing your belt-loop level while smashing any loathing for fitness through a brick wall. Be sure to bring an exercise mat or towel, five-pound weights, plenty of cold water, a sweat towel, gloves for groundwork, and a watch or heart-rate monitor.
You must be 18 years or older for Texas Boot Camp. Register online before attending class.

Texas Boot Camp Fitness
Texas Boot Camp Fitness's certified trainers fortify physiques with an ever-shifting compendium of exercises performed in an outdoor setting. Attendees of all fitness levels sprint and jump toward fitness goals, lifting their own body weight when performing pushups, chin-ups, and acts of levitation. Arms hoist weights, resistance bands stretch between partners, and friendly competitions reveal hidden stores of stamina and strength. Pushing beyond pure leadership of boot-camp classes, instructors supplement workouts with nutritional guidance and lifestyle advice. In the interest of safe and easy mirroring, coaches emphasize clean technique rather than speed or the benefits of cloning.
