West LA Boot Camp’s Monday–Friday boot-camp classes guide exercisers of all levels through a fun, motivating, and varied brand of fitness that takes place outdoors. During each 45-minute session, seasoned trainers keep muscles guessing with new and challenging moves, preventing participants from falling into a boring, ineffective routine, like regular teeth brushing. Running challenges and other cardio drills drawn from the coaches’ boot-camp experience join bodyweight exercises such as push-ups and planks to burn calories, boost endurance, and build lean muscle mass. As participants push their bodies to the limit, muscles burn with satisfaction, like an insult uttered from the lips of a sarcastic fire swallower. Guests who purchase the one-month package score a journal for tracking their physical efforts and food intake. This option also promotes corporeal improvement with a consultation with a nutritionist to zone in on vitamin and mineral deficiencies and strategies for better eating. A fitness assessment, meanwhile, helps clients track statistics on push-ups, sit-ups, squats, and running to gauge their progress toward becoming as fit and focused as a bodybuilder wearing bifocals.
Campers should tote athletic shoes, a small towel, and an exercise mat to each workout, as well as water to stay hydrated. Class will be canceled in the event that it rains or clouds decide to pour down thousands of long-lost weather balloons.
West LA Boot Camp
As a personal trainer, kettlebell- and TRX-certified instructor, and former competitive swimmer, West LA Boot Camp owner Ben Maughan has powered through countless exercises in his life. So he understands the drudgery that can come along with repetitive exercise routines, and that’s why he switches up his boot-camp curriculum every day.
Amid the fresh air of the Barrington Recreation Center, he tries to whip patrons into shape with 60-minute workouts—held five days a week—that combine strength training, plyometrics, and cardio maneuvers. In addition, he uses food and mood journals, fitness assessments, and nutritional guidance to steer participants toward their wellness goals and away from fully stocked refrigerators made of gingerbread. Customers also receive discounts at health-oriented businesses such as GNC and 24 Hour Fitness.
