Weekend Bootcamp! - Saturday, 2/22/14, 9am

  • This location is shown only to members

I run a bootcamp for members, family, and friends on the weekends. It's open to all ages, levels of fitness, experience, etc. and is completely donation based.  Afterward, just donate whatever you think it's worth, and all proceeds will go towards improving the upcoming bootcamp experiences.

 

One big bonus, I hold the bootcamp at a community park with a playground, so if you have kids, please bring them, have them participate with you, or just play at the playground.

 

We go through the following progressions over 90 minutes, all to some awesome and energetic music to motivate you:

 

1.) Dynamic Stretch and Joint Rotations

2.) SAQ Training - Speed, Agility, and Quickness (Hurdles, Cones, Speed Rings, and Agility Ladders)

3.) Metabolic Circuit - Kettlebells, Medicine Balls, Resistance Bands, TRX, Body Bars, Dumbbells, and Battling Ropes

4.) Static Stretch and Yoga-style Cooldown

 

The idea for adults to do this type of exercise is to work the complex chains of the body, and not just a single group, and focus on reconnecting you with the reflexes you had when you were younger.  For everyone including kids, this is an excellent way to build coordination, balance, agility, strength, and flexibility, while enjoying an energetic and supportive group atmosphere.

 

It's challenging, but I've had folks run through it that haven't exercised in many years, and they were fine. If you're super-fit, you can challenge yourself by increasing your effort and limiting your rest between sets. If you're brand new to exercise, you can take it really slow, do only the basic movements, and get plenty of rest in between. You can tailor your workout and effort to how you feel that day, and it's perfectly fine, no matter what you do.

 

My fitness background, I've been into sports and training all of my life, and was a high school basketball coach for 15 years, and a coach overall for 25 seasons. Many of my former players are my best friends today, and that's probably my biggest reward. I am a Certified Personal Trainer, having graduated from NPTI. While I take all precautions to take your injuries and condition into account, please understand this is at your own risk, and that you should pace yourself, and take it super easy, especially if you are new to exercise. And don't worry, I am a coach first, not a drill sergeant, so you'll have only positive vibes and encouragement from me. :)

 

I will take the first 30 people (not including your kids) for the bootcamp, so sign up early. I encourage you to carpool. Please bring a towel, a water bottle or sports drink, and get some rest the night before.

    Thanks everyone who showed up for making it a successful bootcamp. It's good to have a smaller size group so we can focus on each exercise more.

    Unfortunately, there were quite a few no-shows. Sorry all, if you RSVP'd and didn't show or didn't change your RSVP, I'm gonna mark you as a no-show. Please try to change your RSVP or let me know in advance, so I can plan accordingly.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
