What You'll Get
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 $89, you get a boot-camp package from X-Team Fitness (a $550 value). Boot camps are held at various locations throughout Richmond. Each package includes:
- A six-week Life Transformation Challenge boot camp (a $225 value)
- Three nutritional-counseling sessions (a $200 value)
- Two comprehensive baseline-testing sessions (a $125 value)
The certified fitness trainers at X-Team Fitness craft dynamic six-week workout plans that motivate men and women of all fitness levels to break through their self-perceived limitations and transcend to a higher plane of health. During the six-week Life Transformation Challenge boot camp, coed groups of 10–30 team up to conquer one-hour cardio, interval, and strength-training workouts scheduled at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays, though not those weekdays lost to time-travel accidents. Carefully designed by a team of trainers, the intense workout regimen incorporates a variety of outdoor settings selected to trigger latent species memories of better fitness by inundating students in the habitats of their lean Cro-Magnon ancestors. Exercises and activities also change daily to keep various muscle groups working and maintain peak levels of motivation.
Students who enroll in the boot-camp course also receive three confidential nutritional-counseling sessions, during which a registered dietitian assists them in crafting a defensive strategy to keep marauding hordes of chips and spear-wielding donuts at bay. Personalized baseline tests determine each client’s unique metabolic profile and overall physical health with the help of FDA-registered medical devices. These tests assist in goal tracking by identifying those areas of the body that contain calorie-ridden catacombs in need of excavation.
