So, starting today, we implore you to get off your duff and sign up for the next bootcamp session at Flex Pilates. Classes meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at either 6, 7, or 8 a.m. for you early risers, or 5:30 or 6:30 p.m. for those looking for a serious post-work burn. If you've never taken a boot camp at Flex before, the cost is $299 for the entire month of August, while alumni are $329.

Commitment phobic? Not sure what your daily schedule will look like? No problem! Sign up for the unlimited monthly package for $379 a month — ideal if you plan on staying true blue to your workouts. So, what are you waiting for? The only thing you have to lose is a couple of inches.
