Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?
In additional to our regular one hour classes for kids and adults, we periodically hold seminars with multiple classes, featuring visiting instructors for adult seminars and special games and origami for the kids' seminars. Our kids are often thrilled when one of our regular one hour classes ends with an Aikido inspired versions of tag, dodge ball, and more.
I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
The only pressure you should put on yourself to learn and progress is to attend practice regularly, pay attention, and have fun. The instructors and teaching methods will take care of the rest. Aikido is a true martial art where you can continue to learn, grow, and progress for as long as you practice. Beginners practice safely along with experienced students and can join at any time.
There are no competitions in Aikido, as students learn to practice cooperatively in a common pursuit of self-development.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are very fortunate to receive instruction from one of the most senior ranking Aikido instructors in the United States, David Halprin, 7th degree black belt.
David Halprin's primary teacher, Mitsunari Kanai, was part of the last group of live-in students under the founder of Aikido, Ueshiba Morihei (or "O-Sensei" to Aikido practitioners, meaning "Great Teacher"). Since Aikido is best learned through dedicated practice and guided instruction, we consider our direct lineage to the founder of Aikido to be a strong asset in maintaining high standards and authentic techniques, true to the founders teachings.
To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get in Shape for Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training,
nutrition, and accountability. Each of their small-group sessions are tailored to each exerciser. The trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating 30 minutes of strength-training drills—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each student's abilities. Then, they do 25 minutes of cardio—the trainers might start beginners with a walk on the treadmill or light elliptical training, and challenge more advanced exercisers to high-intensity interval-training sessions for increased results.
The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To track ladies' progress toward reaching their goals, the trainers measure their weight and body-fat percentage every two weeks.

Cofounders Jill Tomich and Peter Lavelle had both been active in the fitness world before they opened Ultimate Bootcamp in 2004. Jill threw her energies into boxing, ballet, yoga, and blogging for a wedding diet-and-fitness website, and Peter, a native Irishman, was a triathlete. In all his pursuits, Peter adhered to the motto "We're not here for a long time—we're here for a good time."
This credo infuses all of the boot-camp programs. Campers from all across the fitness spectrum find accommodation as the workouts meet them close to home. Trainers never push too far, but always challenge. An energetic mix of outdoor-resistance and interval training layers patrons in svelte muscle, builds strength, and burns calories to promote weight loss more effectively than a rice cake's PR agent. Far from the stereotypical idea of a boot camp, encouragement and support roll in from instructors who foster cooperation and camaraderie between fellow boot campers.
Climbing up a 12-foot cargo net. Clambering up inclined walls. Slithering through darkened tunnels. These might sound like the keys to escaping a medieval fortress, but really, they're three of the 15+ feats required to complete the five-mile Renegade Run. Its obstacle-studded course winds through a park, sometimes sticking to paved trails, other times cutting through rough terrain laden with exposed tree roots, rocks, and challenging hills.
Reaching the finish line doesn't just mean conquering a major physical challenge, either—it also means doing good for the community. Proceeds from the race help raise awareness of type 1 diabetes. Proceeds also help fund research on the disease at the Faustman Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital.
