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 $49, you get 10 women-only boot-camp classes at White Plains Adventure Boot Camp (up to a $273.75 value). Each student must provide her own exercise mat and set of hand weights.
Certified personal trainer Dawn Robertson acts on a personal passion for women's health by leading ladies through White Plains Adventure Boot Camp's intense training regimen, which stokes metabolisms with weight-training and cardio. Pulling from an arsenal of exercises that aim to burn fat, boost metabolisms, and build muscles, each one-hour class slings a new routine in order to prevent participant boredom and muscular snoring. Sessions aim to stoke metabolism and torch calories by cranking up the class to high intensity, but trainers will scale routines to any fitness level and promise never to push exercisers beyond their limits. Regular boot campers may note such body-bettering benefits as toned muscles, piqued endurance, straightened posture, and chiseled abs that can't be washed off. Classes meet in the south gym at White Plains High School on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m., and indoors at Mamaroneck Avenue Elementary School Monday–Friday from 5:15 a.m. to 6:15 a.m.
