A new service at Bass Lake is providing Mountain Area residents and vacationers another option to get or stay in shape.
Bass Lake Boot Camp provides an hour-long fitness class with personal trainer Darren Tong, 8 - 9 a.m., Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Sponsored by Bass Lake Boat Rentals (54406 Marina Drive), adjacent to Ducey’s on the Lake, the one-hour class consists of cardiovascular, strength training. and flexibility exercises.
“Because the boot camp class is designed to be cardio intensive, people will receive the benefits associated with cardiovascular exercise and also have the ability to strengthen their muscles and improve their flexibility,” Tong said.
A San Francisco native who grew up in North Beach (“Little Italy”), Tong has 13 years experience as a personal fitness trainer, specializing in functional and balance training with a focus on core stabilization and stretching techniques.
Married with two children, Tong’s hobbies include basketball, swimming, bicycling, and tending to his saltwater tropical fish.
“Having the class right on the lakefront is not only convenient for vacationers and local residents but it allows those health and fitness enthusiasts an opportunity to experience a fun and challenging workout in the beautiful outdoors,” Tong said.
The Boot Camp costs $20 per session, with discounts for Mountain Area residents and members of the military. Advance reservations are not required.
