On today’s episode of Nature Watch, we hunt down Seattleus Flabbicus — a pale, fleshy mammal emerging from winter hibernation. (Parental advisory: could scare small children.)
Fact is, months of cave dwelling have you looking a little grizzly. Time for drastic measures — via trainer Traci Barnum’s new Bikini Boot Camp classes. The twice-weekly, no-slacking-allowed workouts will whip even the laziest tails into bikini-bearing shape.
Barnum’s a rare species herself (the former gym owner is as encouraging as Oprah but as tough as Parker Posey in Dazed & Confused). And her 60-minute circuit training sessions (including jumping jacks, push-ups, and squats) really produce results.
So go on, try the class solo at a chic Capitol Hill studio or drag a friend to Green Lake. Women of all fitness levels are welcome.
All you have to do is bear it.
