Like a chemistry final senior year, an outdoor boot camp pits students against the elements, induces sweating, and ends with everyone throwing a couch into the principal's swimming pool. Toughen your muscle molecules with this Groupon.

$35 for One Month of Unlimited Boot-Camp Classes ($150 Value)

In open-air classes, instructors guide boot-camp recruits through unpredictable drills that incorporate pushups, crunches, jumping jacks, and heavy ropes. This Groupon is valid at Century Park in Vernon Hills and at Basic Training Academy's indoor facility in Wood Dale. Basic Training Academy offers 24 classes per month; classes are offered at the Wood Dale location from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Basic Training Academy

Basic Training Academy programs—captained by personal trainers who have either earned or are completing their NFPT certification—enlist the power of positive reinforcement to keep patrons sprinting toward their fitness goals. The 60- to 90-minute sessions, which trade in the shrill screams and sarcastic parrot sidekicks of a drill sergeant for supportive mantras, focus on flexibility, strength, and conditioning. Three levels of boot-camp classes put physiques through challenging calisthenics, torching fat while attendees hustle through picturesque landscapes and vault over elk in parks and forest preserves.

People who want to augment their training experience can enlist in Basic Training Academy's AZPAC (A-Z Physical Assessment Consultation) program. Personal trainers work one-on-one with clients to assess lifestyle patterns before creating personalized long-term fitness strategies. To cement the bonds of workout camaraderie and give students a chance to bask, the academy also holds an annual retreat to Devil's Lake State Park, where participants escape the noise of the city and learn that Devil's Lake is just like a normal lake, only with more chocolate in it.

"Unsurpassed for Excellence"
We drive almost daily year round to walk through the various preserves with our two dogs and each one has its own unique traits but there is not a bad one among them. Some have more ticks than others if you are walking a dog so check them carefully before driving home. The trail system in... Read More
