CAMPTON HILLS— Jackie Kold Fitness and Yoga is holding a Get Smokin’ Hot Boot Camp, June 9-27. The camp will be held from 9-10 a.m daily in a ladies-only setting and each class purchased individually

Camp will be held outside at the studio at 5N201 Shady Oaks Court in Campton Hills and will include nearby parks and trails.

“Because this camp is geared to women, it will address their specific fitness needs,” saidJackie Kold, studio owner and personal trainer/ yoga instructor who runs the camp. “Camp size is limited to 12 female participants to offer the highest quality of instruction.”

All enrollees are asked to bring a dry goods donation for Lazarus House. A donations list is available on the studio website at and also on the Lazarus House website at encourage donations, the studio is offering a drawing for a free boot camp day. Each time a dry goods donation is brought in, an entry into the drawing is made.

In addition to more traditional boot camp exercises, these sessions will include power yoga with bands and free weights to provide full range of motion exercises. Kold will utilize techniques she has developed over the years and specifically designed to help her son, Garrett prepare for the Air Force Special Forces. Garrett, now in the Air Force, will help lead the camp on select days while he is on leave this June.

“My workouts also have a strong ‘guts and butts’ component because these are key areas where women want to lose weight and tone up. For flexibility and strength, we warm up and cool down with yoga,” Kold said.

In addition to personal training, Kold also offers yoga classes for women at studio, including power yoga classes, which strengthens her students using free weights during yoga poses.

Daily Camp Cost is $20 if you register by May 25, and $22 to register after that date while space lasts. For more information, visit or call Jackie at the Studio at (630) 584-2254.
