Boot camps are a fun, challenging and productive way to reach your fitness goals.  They are an excellent way to enhance aerobic capacity and muscular strength and endurance.  Our workouts include a multitude of unique training tools from agility ladders to slosh pipes to pushing a truck up a hill.  It’s a great workout with great variety and for every fitness level!    Many people enjoy this type of adventure because it's a team work environment.

Goal Setting

TRX Suspension Training

Last weekend was great!  I attended a TRX Group Suspension Training Workshop.  It was an 8 hour day packed full of education and hands on TRX.  Going into the workshop I was already an avid TRX fan and I left feeling empowered to do more!  In my Kettlebell X-Fit group exercise classes we use the TRX in addition to kettlebells and sandbags.  The takeaway I got from this training was that TRX is a powerful tool for everyone.  From the beginner to the advanced each individual will meet specific fitness goals.

Are you on track?

If you made a New Years fitness resolution are you on track for success?   When February rolls around the majority of the people have pushed their resolution to the side.  Take control today and embrace your resolution for a heathier YOU in 2012!!

New Years Resolutions....

If your New Years resolution is goal oriented. How will you attain that goal?  My advice is to set  your end goal and 'back into it'.  For example if your goal is to lose 20 lbs by November 15, 2012 then you would create a plan to lose a certain number of pounds per week which would roll into your per month goal and then BAM- achieving the smaller goals was pivitol in achieving the November 15, 2012 goal you had set for yourself.  

Success of my clients means the world to me!

With Thanksgiving around the corner I would like to say I am thankful for so many things! Every time one of my personal training clients breaks a plateau,  when Urban Boot Campers finish week four stronger, faster and healthier than they were at the start and when those Kettlebell X-Fit Group Ex participants lift and push more weight than they thought they could or take it up an intensity notch on the TRX or sandbag.   I am very thankful that I have the opportunity to work with the best clients!!
