Palm Beach, Fla. (PRWEB) October 12, 2011
Both boot camp trainers and clients alike know the power of boot camp workouts; a tough routine of rigorous boot camp drills is where it all begins. Master Fitness Guru, Melissa Uftring brings these grueling, results oriented fitness regimens that the military puts new recruits through at the Eau Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach.
Fitness enthusiasts can enjoy Melissa’s new Beach Body Boot Camp as participants are led through a series of H.I.I.T. (High Intensity Interval Training) drills in this outdoor beachy-keen class. This fun, full body work-out incorporates various types of equipment such as tires, rope ladders and medicine balls to help guests sculpt their best beach body plus athletic drills, sprints, core work, and an exhilarating barefoot beach run.
Melissa’s philosophy of “train like an athlete” are words to live by and Beach Boot Camp embraces a very encouraging spirit as each “recruit” supports each other. Because of her concentrated fitness and well-being background in Pilates, gymnastics, yoga, dance, nursing and nutrition, Melissa has a keen eye for proper form and technique in training protocols and is able to assess all aspects of fitness, including muscular endurance and strength, as well as flexibility. Melissa’s clients appreciate being taught in a challenging, yet safe and effective manner from the inside out.
Beach Boot Camp is every Saturday morning, 9:30AM – 11:00AM for $25.00 per person and includes all access pass to the Eau Spa Self-Centered Garden and Eau Zone, plus cupcakes for a sweet touch to a salty, sweat-inducing work-out.
