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


"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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
