The Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, California isn't just a place to go visit for a getaway, it now also offers boot camp classes. The Terranea's Boot Camp Resort Package offers an hour-long, "military-style" workout that makes use of the resort's 102 coastal acres, followed by access to Terranea's luxurious oceanfront spa facilities for a relaxing post-workout cool down.
The workout begins at the fitness center at 6 a.m. where participants warm-up with traditional calisthenics by the pool deck. After that either a short jog to get to the next location or, on a particularly hard day, 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 can grab a meal at the spa café or enjoy the steam, sauna, swimming pool, outdoor hot tub and cold plunge. For an additional fee, guests can order services including 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.
