A strong man wrestles you to the ground to show off; a stronger man boosts your self-esteem and then accidentally breaks three of your ribs with a supportive hug. Learn the tenets of both strength and community with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a four-week boot camp session (three sessions per week for a total of 12 sessions; a $180 value) at one of the Transformation Boot Camp locations in Dallas, Allen, Garland, Lewisville, and Mesquite.
Combining cardio and core workouts with cross-training exercises, Transformation Boot Camp helps participants rid themselves of excess mass while improving their strength and self-confidence. Boot camp sessions include jumping jacks, lunges, crunches, pushups, fire-eating, agility drills, and more. The workouts are complemented by a host of perks, such as an initial fitness assessment, online meal planning, and discounts on supplements, future boot-camp sessions, and back issues of magazines about coffee mugs.
Founded by fitness expert Mike Thornton, Transformation Boot Camp is designed to give campers of all fitness levels a friendly, supportive environment where they can confront their lazy inner demons. This Groupon is valid for early morning or evening sessions held three times weekly; click here for links to each location's schedule.
Though it has yet to receive many online reviews, Transformation Boot Camp has been featured multiple times in the Dallas Morning News for its alternative approach to boot-camp fitness programs. Transformation Boot Camp creator Mike Thornton has also contributed custom outdoor workout regiments to Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine. Customer testimonials are available on the company's website:
- But while it's still possible to find camps that would do any drill sergeant proud, some camps are moving away from the bullhorn-barking style of instruction often associated with demeaning participants and pushing them until they vomit. Now, instead of yelling "drop and give me 20" in the face of those who don't sweat enough, some instructors inspire campers with rousing cries of "hooyah" and high-fives. – Lori Price, Dallas Morning News
Transformation Boot Camp
Celebrating their 12th year in business this year, Transformation Boot Camp’s team sums up their philosophy on living in one simple phrase: “We are never done.” In that spirit, Transformation Boot Camp celebrates positivity, teamwork, and the gallons of sweat that fuel people down the path to fitness. Each boot camp begins with a body assessment that allows students to track every ounce, inch, or percentage of body fat lost. To compliment the cardio-heavy circuit training, Transformation Boot Camp offers a set of Power Tools to help each boot-camp member hit their goals, including meal planners and refrigerators that make wisecracks about unhealthy food choices. All of this explains why Transformation Boot Camp was named Living magazine's "Best Weight Loss Program in North Dallas" in 2013 and 2014.
