Lisa’s Bike & Bootcamp Studio
A workout not for the light of heart! Bootcamp at Lisa’s is an intense hour of interval training that will leave you whipped and sweaty—but the time flies, probably because you don’t have a second to think.
I arrived for a Friday night class a little early, the large studio pulsing with ecstatic music as an enticing spin class wrapped up. Led by instructor Jennifer Vincent, eight other boot campers and I began with a jumprope, pushup, and air squat warm-up. Then we dove straight into 5 sets of intervals—kettlebell combo moves, box jump burpees, pushups on a medicine ball, hanging reverse crunches, and sit-ups. Ladder-style, we stayed at each station for 30 seconds, then did a 60-second round, then 90, back to 60, then 30. In between each round, we did a tabata set of high-knees, burpees, jumping air squats, and planks, followed by a quick rest and water break.
The vibe at Lisa’s is unique, fierce, and tight-knit, ideal for competitive athletes and those who thrive on a good team. It’s not a gym where just anyone walks in, nor is it a place where someone can pay for a membership and never walk in. Lisa, the studio owner, knows each and every one of her clients. She holds them accountable for the commitment they make to the studio, and she makes the commitment right back.
