Summer Boot Camp at AT&T Park Starts Monday

Categories: Health
Attention lumpy, unmotivated people who work downtown: You have a chance, starting Monday, to be whipped into shape by the lovely Jennifer Pattee (that's her), a local fitness instructor who has started the city's first ever boot camp inside AT&T Park.

"It will give people the opportunity to train the way pro-athletes do -- without the steroids," Pattee joked. But seriously, the training program will involve running the bleachers, the bases, and the one-mile loop inside the stadium. Lots of fun equipment like medicine balls, weights, and ropes will also be utilized.

The partnership between Pattee's company, Basic Training, and Giants Enterprises (the company that handles all non-baseball events at the stadium) is the beginning of what appears to be a new focus on fitness for fans.

"The Giants have always been proponents of health and fitness," said Sarah Hunt, the senior director with Giants Enterprises (who evidently is ignoring the team's signature food item: garlic fries). Just recently, the stadium also played host to a half-marathon and five-kilometer run, and Hunt expects that the venue will eventually become a site for yoga classes and health and fitness fairs. Yes, yoga at the ballpark. 

Pattee, who started Basic Training, five years ago, will hold boot camp in and around the stadium throughout the summer on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. For the summer, you can attend twice a week for $275 or three times a week for $315.

It's also worth mentioning that Pattee was also a brave subject in the recent SF Weekly cover story "Girl Game," in which a famous male pick-up artist attempted to teach five women (Pattee included) how to meet guys in the city.

Note: Pattee does not seduce her boot camp clients.
