Fat Camps in Maryland
SuperFit Boot Camp for Women
Fat loss camps, or weight loss camps, operate with a military-like discipline and can last for a couple of weeks to several months. Fat camp programs include interval-style training, strength training and cardiovascular workouts such as running and biking, as well as nutrition counseling. The intense daily program at a fat camp provides the structure, support and professional guidance to help clients achieve long-term healthy lifestyle changes. The programs are strenuous, so check with your doctor before signing up for a fat camp program.
SuperFit Boot Camp for Women is based on the Complete Fitness System four-week boot camp program for weight loss and strength training. The program was started by David Wehrenberg, a former Baltimore police officer and certified fitness expert. Wehrenberg has more than 28 years of experience as a trainer certified by the National Athletic Trainer Association. He is also a nutrition expert certified by the American Academy of Sports Dietitians and Nutritionists. The program meets five days per week or three days per week for those who want a lighter regimen. Exercise programs consist of running, weight lifting with dumbbells and kettlebells, yoga and medicine ball exercises. Participants in the program receive a nutrition evaluation, body measurements, fitness assessments, as well as support and nutrition education. There is a money-back guarantee for participants who do not lose weight or feel better after completion of the program. SuperFit Boot Camp for Women is located in Waldorf, Maryland.
