I’ve been getting a lot of questions about Boot Camp. What is it? Are you going to yell at me – is it intimidating – can I handle it and keep up?

Boot Camp is a dynamic program that focuses on high intensive outdoor exercises. We train outside rain or shine. It is a combination of resistance training, cardiovascular training, sport specific and military drills, flexibility, and core training, along with chanting, singing, and loads of fun! By far is one of the best ways to get in shape fast!

At Boot Camp, I am not going to stand over you and yell at you with intimidating tactics to do more. I will push and motivate you though. And I expect the very best from everyone that participates. You only owe it yourself – Like I always say “Victory is reserved for those willing to pay the price.” You will learn to push yourself, mainly because it’s only human nature to challenge yourself when you are in a group setting. Of course not everyone is athletically inclined, but by being surrounded by a group of people who support and encourage you; you’re naturally only going to do better.

My goal is to create an empowering environment that will challenge you and make you better. It is about getting in shape, but it’s also about nutrition and about being better at everything that you do. You will learn to take your body to its limit and beyond.

But make no mistake it is still Boot Camp and I do expect you to always show up in time, shut up, pay attention and give 100% as there is no slacking. It is about intensity, commitment, discipline, courage, effort, teamwork, sweat, dedication and PRIDE!!!

At Electra I run two Boot Camps: Project BootCamp, which is early morning at 6:30am Tuesday and Friday’s; and Women Only Boot Camp which is at 9:30am Tuesday and Thursday.

So what to expect when you enlist in Boot Camp – You will lose weight, lose body fat, tone and firm up your body, you will improve your posture, you will sleep better, you will gain confidence, and you will look and feel your best.

Just remember this: Any trainer can get you tired – but a true fitness specialist will make you better!
