Do you hate exercise? Do you detest exercise classes? Are you gym-phobic? If your answer is yes to one or all of those, then Anna Gunn and Jennie Votel's boot camp for women at Lake Merritt could be a perfect fit. Women of all ages, sizes, and shapes regularly partake in Oakland Adventure Boot Camp, and Gunn and Votel make everyone feel like a winner. With a combination of activities each day, combined with their shouting, silly jokes, and gentle nudges, you don't have time to complain. Just feel the burn! Warning: The women who go to the 5:30 a.m. class are pretty fierce. First-timers, try the 6:30 a.m. or 9 a.m. classes to get your feet wet. Just make sure to bring plenty of water.
