Pic11 So many of us struggle at this time of year to maintain our
fitness goals, much less launch into new athletic endeavors. But sometimes all
it takes is a little encouragement and camaraderie to get our bodies moving in
the right direction. If there’s a woman on your holiday list in need of a
motivational push, sign her up for a women’s boot camp fitness program and
she’ll surely be appreciative.

Boot camp programs combine strengthening, toning and
cardiovascular fitness exercises in an encouraging group environment, designed
to help participants gain fitness, lose weight and have fun. A few
organizations that I’m familiar with are AlaVie Fitness in the San Francisco
Bay Area and Mile High Boot Camp in the Denver
area. There’s sure to be a women’s boot camp in your area, and many offer gift
certificates to make your holiday shopping a breeze.
