Just over a week into the 30 Days to a Better You challenge, and TODAY’s Jenna Wolfe brought the fun — and the sweat — to the plaza crowd.
As a certified personal trainer, Wolfe regularly kicks people’s butts into shape at the gym. She said a boot camp is a great way to mix up the routine.
“I love boot camps,” Wolfe said. “It’s a great combination of strength training and of cardio at the same time.”
A good boot camp will offer a number of different exercises working a number of different body parts, all helping to get that heart rate up. Wolfe likes to go with a variety of short exercises to keep from getting bored.
She had plaza fans reaching for their toes and curling into crunches. “We’re going fast for ten, slow for four,” Wolfe shouted to the crowd as they kicked high.
“Jog it out,” said Wolfe. “We don’t rest.”
As the crowd worked out, two men stood among them, one eating a banana and the other a bagel. Turns out, they were actors Kevin Daniels and Michael Mosley from USA's new show "Sirens."
“Unfortunately, they left the doughnuts inside,” said TODAY's Erica Hill, as she joined in on the exercises.
