You don't have to join the armed forces, or pay an arm and a leg, to go to Boot Camp.
The Colony Pool and Tennis Club will offer an outdoor fitness boot camp Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 7 to 8 a.m. in July.
Each class will be led by Patti Foot, a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor. According to the Colony Pool website, the class "will mix traditional calisthenics and body weight exercises with interval and strength training."
Foot will tailor each class to those present, so eveyone from beginners to experienced athletes can work up a sweat.
If boot camp is a little too intimidating, the club will also offer vinyasa yoga classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Rachael Grywalski Welz will teach the classes, which will increase core and upper body strength and flexibility.
All classes will take place on the beach at Colony Pool from 7 to 8 a.m. and are open to all Chatham residents. Membership at Colony Pool is not necessary to take the classes.
The cost is $15 per class, payable on Community Pass. A prepaid Fitness Class card will be held at the front gate of Colony Pool and punched by the instructor before each class. After six paid classes the seventh is free.
Classes begin the first week of July.
