About Us

Our Approach

At Angel’s Boot Camp you can guarantee that you will get a great workout no matter your fitness level.  All exercises have options for more advanced participants as well as different options for those just getting started AND all those in the middle. Each workout is different, fresh and effective every time you show up. 27 workouts scheduled throughout the week, scheduled at various times so that you can be sure to get your exercise in every day. Overuse injuries are a thing of the past. Angel’s workouts include creative detail and knowledge that will hit every muscle during the week while keeping joints moving and healthy (injury free). If your approach to fitness is to not have to think about what you need to do and you like to be motivated by others around you, this is the best solution for you. The trainers take care of the workout formula for you while the community of Boot Campers sweat along side each other until the beeper tells them it’s over.
