It's different from your typical boot camp since it’s inviting to both genders. Tara remarked that the Sunday classes have attracted “people that do yoga, athletes, runners, and even some martial arts guys.” Don’t worry, guys, there are no light-weight hand weights or pelvic pulsing exercises, which are staples of some boot camps and barre classes. If you are looking for a bikini-style boot camp, you’ll be taken care of, too. Your body will appreciate the killer exercise against the wall, which targets the back side. Three days later, I’m reminded of it every time I take the stairs.
What makes the experience do-able is Ed’s demeanor. Ed is much more approachable Bob Harper than tough-love Jillian Michaels. He's encouraging you throughout the workout, while also ensuring that you focus, breathe and hydrate.
What medal do you get for giving it your all?
Thirty minutes of recovery yoga with Tara!
Her finale enables you to stretch, relax and reward your body for its exhilarating workout. And, of course, there’s an extra-long savasana with gentle adjustments and blankets.
Will I go back? Absolutely. And I’ll bring some of my more masochistic guy friends and girl friends with me.
