Adventure Boot Camp

It's January, so naturally we all turn to thoughts of self improvement. Yeah, yeah, that just means getting rid of that layer of protective fat we all acquired over the holidays (or earlier : ). Well, this is an adventure blog so we've got to find an adventurous way to get fit.

Here's a fun article from the St. Petersburg Times about women who joined an Adventure Boot Camp where the motto is, "Be the star of your own reality show." According to John Kent, the leader of an Adventure Boot Camp in Florida, "Participants can expect to lose 5 to 12 pounds, 3 to 5 percentage points of body fat, and 1 to 3 inches in the waistline during each four-week camp."

The article focuses on the women of Kent's camp so to find an Adventure Boot Camp near you, click here and you'll be taken to ABC's official list of camps around the world. This might be a great opportunity for your whole adventure club!
