At OC Fitness Boot Camp, exercise isn’t just about summoning an instant endorphin rush or fitting into a smaller pair of jeans a few weeks down the line. It’s about helping people live longer, healthier lives. Held at scenic parks and beaches, workouts help participants cultivate a love of fitness that endures when life throws them a curveball or a water balloon filled with chocolate pudding. Here, participants of all fitness levels cheer one another toward goals during strength-building exercises such as burpees, squats, push-ups, and sit-up variations. In addition to torching calories, running and jumping drills fill the group with energy, like a pep rally led by anthropomorphic lightning bolts. A seasoned instructor oversees each camper, doling out exercise demos, technique tips, and a hearty dose of motivation.
Fitness expert Christina Lucy founded Code Pink Boot Camp and has since expanded her fitness program into numerous locations throughout the western United States. Each of the trainers working for Code Pink claims extensive training and accredited certifications in the industry, and must undergo a strict audition to demonstrate their fitness prowess and knowledge of how many annual budgets each U.S. president could bench-press. With a schedule that includes several sessions throughout the weekday, the classes accommodate clients with varying schedules. During each session, instructors guide participants through high-intensity exercises that aim to incinerate fat, tone torsos, and improve overall well-being. The program caters to women of all ages and fitness levels and stresses safety, fun, and perseverance.
After an eclectic career spent running a 30,000-square-foot fitness center in Manchester, working as a chef for eight years, and co-owning a model and casting agency, Wendy Crowther decided to immigrate to California and open Wendy’s Boot Camp. She and her certified personal trainers—Mark, an accomplished mixed martial artist, and Nick a record-breaking pole-vaulter—lead students through intense 55-minute boot-camp sessions. Beyond sprints and pushups, Wendy also works as a certified life coach, spending one-on-one sessions teaching clients how to accomplish career goals and trick rivals into paying their parking tickets.
Orshi McNaughton is a self-proclaimed myth buster, debunking peoples’ misconceptions about the science of working out and nutrition to help them lead healthier lifestyles. She also challenges traditional notions of boot camp, describing her sessions as personal training in a group setting rather than military-inspired shoutfests. Whether inside one of her brand new state-of-the-art fitness facilities or outdoors, she and her nine co-trainers wring sweat from students with interval training workouts that incorporate boot camp and kickboxing. On any given day, classes might make use of kettlebells, battle ropes, pull-up bars, or BOSU balance trainers, as well as more traditional dumbbells, medicine balls, and stationary penny farthings.
