Try a Little Boot Camp this Summer
If a full resort getaway to get in shape is not in the cards, how about a daily boot camp at a luxurious resort?
For $40, Terranea’s Boot Camp Resort Package offers an hour-long, vigorous “military-style” workout that makes use of the resort’s 102 beautiful coastal acres, followed by access to Terranea’s luxurious oceanfront spa facilities for a relaxing post-workout cool down. The program is open to – and challenging for – men and women alike!
The workout begins at the fitness center at 6 a.m. where participants warm-up with traditional calisthenics by the pool deck. Following the warm-up, the class ventures out around the property, usually by a short jog to get to the next location or, on a particularly hard day, by doing lunges up a steep coastal hill. The class eventually makes its way down to the beach cove to begin speed and agility drills in the sand. Along the way, the class stops at various points for a variety of exercises including tricep dips, push-ups and sprints. The class concludes back at the fitness center where participants are guided through mat work targeting abs and arms, followed by stretching.
After the workout, participants reward themselves with a day of rest and relaxation at the spa which includes a spa café where they can fuel up, as well as a steam, sauna, swimming pool, outdoor hot tub and cold plunge. For an additional fee, guests can indulge in a variety of massage, body treatments and facials.
Terranea’s Boot Camp is offered throughout the year in six-week intervals, with the next session beginning July 26, 2010. The program is open to both resort guests and non-guests who can either drop by for a single workout or participate regularly throughout the session. Participants can purchase either the Basic Boot Camp (workout only) or the Resort-Style Boot Camp that includes access to the spa.
Prices are as follows:
– Basic (workout only): $20 daily drop-in; $325- 3 days/week (6 weeks); $395- 5 days/week (6 weeks)
– Resort-style(with spa access): $40 daily drop-in; $650 3 days/week (6 weeks); $795- 5 days/week (6 weeks)
