What You'll Get
Though sweat indicates a great workout, inward sweating denotes an athlete with true humility. Sprint modestly with today's Groupon to Waterfront Fitness. Choose between the following two options:
• For $49, you get four weeks of outdoor boot camp, with up to three classes per week (a $175 value).
• For $84, you get eight weeks of outdoor boot camp, with up to three classes per week (a $300 value).
Classes are held at Elizabeth Caruthers Park, Willamette Park, and Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
Waterfront Fitness's certified instructors sweat alongside their calorie-incinerating clients in rigorous outdoor workouts that range from calisthenics to cardio-focused games. Fast-track fitness courses allow clients to avoid futile treadmills and belligerent, grunting bench presses, undertaking a regime of power walking, lunges, squats, and push-ups on sunlit grass. Eight-week sessions ramp up the intensity of four-week sessions, but both groups contain no more than 30 pupils per class.
Head trainer and owner Jason Bell earned a degree in exercise and sports science from the University of Sydney in Australia, and also imparts knowledge as a soccer coach with the Portland Timbers' youth-development program, passing down soccer gems such as proper kicking techniques and fluid choreography for player-led intermission shows.
