over two decades now internationally-recognized fitness
& lifestyle expert Tom
Holland has led his original Nantucket Beach Fitness Camp
on the sands of the picturesque island of Nantucket. Always held the first two
weeks in August, "campers" are led through a truly unique fitness program in the early
morning Jetties Beach sunrise. Not a "boot camp," [how hard is it to
yell at people?] Tom prefers to call it an "Adult Gym Class, "providing a fun yet challenging workout tailored to each
fitness level. Cardiovascular drills, strength exercises, plyometric and agility
stations, team events and much more. Tom also teaches while he trains, giving
fitness, nutrition and motivation tips throughout each and every workout. From the beginner
exerciser to advanced athlete, Tom challenges each person to push his or her own
personal limits. Camp size limited - register early to reserve your spot!
