Introducing Firehall Boot Camps

tyler-and-amandaAre you having trouble staying motivated to meet your fitness goals? Maybe it's time for you to explore a boot camp. "Boot Camp" is a broad term used to describe group fitness classes that are designed to promote fitness goals, camaraderie, and team effort. A boot camp provides social support when you don't feel like exercising. You benefit from the instructor's expertise, who can offer immediate feedback, corrections, and modifications needed during the specific exercises. Boot camps are fun and motivate people to challenge themselves at least three times a week. There are three new early morning boot camps being offered at the Firehall. Grab a friend and sign up for all three classes.
