Fitness boot camp opens in Louisville


Fitness For Living has expanded its Fitness Boot Camps to
Louisville. The company, which has operated indoor and outdoor camps in
Boulder, Lafayette and Longmont for seven years, is offering the new camps in
Louisville’s Fireside Elementary gymnasium.

Each five-week Boot Camp session meets for 10
exercise-driven classes and is designed for a wide range of ability and fitness
levels. Activities include running relay races, hopping steps, hoisting
sandbags, negotiating an agility circuit or traversing an obstacle course.

“I love the fact that the workouts change every day and you
never know what you’re going to get,” commented Lee Ann Baronett, a camp
participant. “On top of that, having a group of people to help you through the
workout makes a big difference too.”

The new Louisville Boot Camps, which started Nov. 3, meet
Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Fireside. Additional camp
sessions will held Jan. 6 to Feb. 10 and Feb. 10 to March 17. The cost is
$145-$185 and includes before and after fitness assessments, body composition
tests and nutritional guidance.
