Pure Adrenaline at Pure Power Boot Camp

A

great workout is supposed to shake things up – push you to the limit and, at the same time, make you feel good about yourself. And that is exactly what happened when I took a class at Pure Power Boot Camp in Southampton last week. (OK, maybe I felt good about myself after the workout. But that’s what happens when you challenge yourself, and I experienced runner’s high, or whatever the equivalent “strength and conditioning” term is, for the rest of the day.) Pure Power Boot Camp, a no-nonsense fitness boot camp, recently opened its newest location in Southampton. Though it employs the same militarystyle fitness tactics as the popular New York and Jericho locations, the Southampton location has a decidedly Hamptons edge – it’s all outdoors. The concept and mission behind Pure Power Boot Camp is simple: They are a no frills, real deal fitness facility that encourages community and strength by using a uniquely designed obstacle course. It’s no doubt intense, but it can be adapted to fit the fitness needs of any participant. The fitness program is hard-core in the sense that it pushes “recruits” to get the absolute most out of their sessions, but not in a way that caters solely to the athletically adept. Pure Power is accessible to everyone, and stalwart military notions of teamwork, confidence, perseverance and power are emphasized, as you push yourself to complete the course.

Hearing “Come on LAFFEY” while I was that keep you prisoner,” but they have an oddly trying to swing across about 25 or 30 monkey bars – comforting undertone to them. As in – we’ll whip remind me again how many times I did this as a kid? you into shape, but we won’t abandon you. (I guess – is a lot more motivating that you would think. The quality that Pure Power most wants to see the concept of “A good soldier never leaves a man in its recruits is persistence. Lauren will modify behind” applies here.) an exercise to adapt to any I arrived at my Friday physical condition.

I should mention that since the course is outdoors, before I knew it, we were looping around the obstacle you might want to consider wearing longer pants to course, completing challenges along the way.
