Boot Camp! What can I say… It has changed my life. I have to say that the thought of getting up at 4:30 a.m. to get to the park to workout by 5:30a.m. at first was a little scary. But then you get there, become friends with the ladies that are with you, along with the trainer, and there is such camaraderie that you actually start looking forward to it everyday. You end up using muscles that you never even knew you had. You groan together, laugh together, sweat together, and cheer each other on. It is a total fitness, full body workout. I am 46 years old and feel better than I have in years. I started noticing small changes in my body around the 3rd week which has motivated me to take the next camp which starts in 2 weeks. It was the best decision I have ever made and worth every penny I have spent, and then some. I can’t wait for the next one!!!!
The boot camp changed what I do and put into my body. I eat better and I actually enjoy working out now. The first week of the boot camp I could barely run 2 laps let alone a mile. Now after 4 weeks of training I can run a mile and a half. I have lost inches, gained endurance and serious muscle in my arms. My attitude is better and my husband says I look great. I feel great and look forward to the next boot camp.
“5:30 AM! Are you crazy?”, I exclaimed upon hearing the time that my first Boot Camp was to take place. This is also the same response that I get from all of my friends and clients when I explain my daily morning adventure to them. To be honest, that early morning alarm is a sound that hurts both mentally and physically. But within a few minutes, anticipation of the challenges ahead sets in! What a rewarding experience each camp has been for me! I finally have found a work-out regimen that I love. The work-outs are great; the camaraderie between all of the women involved is not only encouraging but cherished.
I was going to be in a wedding and I needed to drop some pounds. I had been trying, but I knew I needed someone to push me/motivate me as the “gym” just wasn’t doing it for me. I joined boot camp and immediately thought “Oh my, whose idea was this!” Although the first week was enlightening for those unused muscles, by the end of the first week, not only was I feeling better, but my body clock was also catching up to be a morning person! Boot camp keeps me motivated and moving. You can’t help but want to try your best, or at least better than the day before. Boot camp gives you a positive focus. EVERYONE STARTS AT THE SAME TIME AND ENDS AT THE SAME TIME!
The nutritional guidance is wonderful too. I can honestly say, if I hadn’t of done the boot camp myself, I would not have believed it… I don’t know how many pounds I lost, but I do know that in my first boot camp of 4 weeks, 5 days a week, I went from a size 16 pant to a size 12! I never looked or felt better! I looked fabulous for the wedding and better yet on New Years Eve in my size 12 dress! I have become a believer in proper workout and nutrition. I have continued on to the next session. Following their advice regarding nutrition and cutting out sugar and white flour, I found that having even one cookie was too too sweet for me! I don’t miss the sweets! I have not missed out on anything as on my free day I can have what I want. However, I have learned and now make healthier choices. I am hooked not only on working out first thing in the morning, but the camaraderie that has been formed with the other ladies.
I am the mother of a 7 month old and a 22 month old. Having two closely spaced pregnancies really took a toll on my body.
I still had baby weight from the first baby when I became pregnant with the second. I had lost all confidence in my body mechanics and felt weak, unstable, and uncoordinated, not to mention FAT. I joined Boot Camp because it was something new, it was something finite (I only had to commit for a month. If I did not like it, no big loss…), and it was early enough that my husband could care for the babies if they woke up.
The first week was a killer. I felt like I had been hit by a truck! When we were tested at the end of the first week, I could speed walk a mile in 14:55. I felt there was no way I could walk any faster than that, but at the end of the month, my time was 13:29! Also, at the beginning of the month, I could do 14 pathetic-looking pushups. At the end of the month, I was able to do 34 solid ones. I felt stronger and even though I had not lost weight, my clothes fit better. These fantastic results coupled with the unexpected and wonderful camaraderie I felt with the other woman who were able to consistently get up at “dark o’clock”, convinced me to go a second month.
I was able to run for my timed run the beginning of the second month. I had done some additional running outside of the boot camp and clocked 10:50. Pushups at the start of the second month was 37. At the end of the month, the timed run was 10:37; pushups were 48!!! I am completely hooked on this program. Imagine your workout done before many people even get up! And being in the fresh air for inspiration, compare that to the hamster treadmill in a sweaty gym….there is no going back! The routine varies so that we never know what to expect each day. No boredom here!
This is an attempt to describe how Bootcamp has affected me. I just cannot explain why I look forward to getting up at 4:30 to drive 25 minutes to be at boot camp at 5:30. Is it the absolute commitment of our leader???? Is in the camaraderie of the group attending boot camp????…perhaps all of these but I must say that the coach is the “super glue” I encourage ANYONE considering this program to DO IT! You will NEVER….EVER…want to stop. It is just great. I have no superlatives to describe how great it is….JUST DO IT!
– P.S. I lost 7 inches the first four week session.
I started boot camp hoping that this would be just want I needed to kick myself back into gear. I have not exercised on a regular basis (except for a couple of weeks here and there) for the past 4 years. I had previously taught aerobics classes for over 6 years prior to my 4 year hiatus. I have to say that Adventure Boot camp has far exceeded my expectations. By the end of the first 4 weeks I had dropped an entire size in clothing and my endurance level was greatly improved. I have just completed my 2nd boot camp and am excited to start the next session. I can’t imagine not doing this. It has given me a new appreciation for running and exercising outdoors. I love it!
I’m a stay-at-home mom with 2 little boys. Needless to say, my day revolved around my kids’ schedules, but I noticed that my neglect of myself was beginning to show. So I decided to do something about it and signed up with Adventure Boot Camp. My husband and I didn’t think I’d last more than 1 session because I didn’t have energy to do anything. Guess what? I’m now on my 5th session with 5x the energy than when I first started. If you want to get motivated to get started to a healthier & fitter you, this is the way to go…the classes are never boring and the instructors are great examples.
Committing to Boot camp started out as a way to “step up” my exercise routine and get myself out of my boring routine of just running every day. I had noticed that even though running has been a part of my life since I was a teen, I was not feeling strong any longer and I was getting injured a lot. Getting involved with Boot camp has changed all that for me. I am no longer bored with my routine and I feel so much stronger now while running and I no longer am getting those dreaded shin splints!!! I have increased my speed and I have the stamina to get through a long run now and feel great just like the way I use to feel as a teen while running cross country. Boot camp has totally made me fall in love with my running routine all over again. I look forward to my long runs now on the weekends!!!!!!! The biggest cherry on top for me though is that all my friends have noticed that I am a lot more tone then I use to be. Also, I feel great in all of my clothes again!!!!!!!
