CONGRATULATIONS TO TWO VERY COOL KIDS!

Boot Campers of the Month!

IMG_0338.JPG

Consistent attendance, Check!

Great work(out) ethic, Check!

Noticeable improvements in stamina, strength & endurance, Check!

Embracing the Boot Camp Culture, Check!

Involvement in a healthy lifestyle through activity outside Boot Camp, Check!

Exemplify an overall healthy lifestyle, Check!

Trisha & Neil were chosen as BOMs because, as you can see from the list above, they meet the most important areas in the criteria for this recognition. They attend on a regular basis together, motivate and push one another to strive for greatness. Many times, they even run to and from their home to their boot camp workout. They always come in with smiles on their faces and are ready to get to work. And Neil is always sure to thank the trainers with a handshake once the workout is completed. Both Trisha & Neil show an incredible amount of confidence and maturity in a predominantly adult program.

Recently, they both conquered their very first Spartan Kids Race in December, 2017. They asked many questions about the race wanting to be prepared. Trisha & Neil enjoyed the race so much, they plan to conquer the Spartan Sprint this January, a 3+ mile extreme obstacle course race that requires both physical and mental toughness.

Both Trisha & Neil are in high school and grew up playing soccer & volleyball. They both currently participate in their school golf teams. They initially went to BC to keep their mom company.  At times it’s hard to be motivated to go every night, however, their quest to be fit and strong overcomes those obstacles. Spartan was the next level for them and the experience of the Kids race gave them a good check on where they are and where they need to be in terms of fitness. And according to their father, “They like the trainers at Boot Camp the most as they feel they are very supportive. They both make me and mom very proud!”

Well, they make the Fit Body Boot Camp Training Team very proud as well and have inspired us so much to see two young people so focused and dedicated to their health & fitness. They are certainly the future of fitness!

The BOM that completes 2017!

Congratulations to Laura Moffett

Boot Camper of the Month20376167_10211716375159599_31947932310126986_n.jpg

Now this Georgia girl is truly INSANE and suffers from a serious affliction of FOMO (fear of missing out).

Laura loves to be active and she loves to be active, especially in the great outdoors. Even more, she loves people and being active among like-minded friends. She has competed in just about every outdoor event there is. From Turkey Trots to mountain biking with the Trail Angels to running triathlons and half marathons, camping the eastern Sierras with her family, racing the Ragnar Trail Relay, hiking in Yosemite and recently backpacking to summit Mt. Whitney, there’s just nothing to keep her down.

And being the social butterfly that she is, Laura decided she wanted to try out Fit Body Boot Camp…..just to change things up a bit and meet more people.  She has been committed to her fitness regimen and she shows up with a big smile on her face on a regular basis and works hard. She is always inviting friends to join in and has made even more friends at boot camp as well. Since attending Fit Body Boot Camp, Laura has participated in our hiking and fitness challenge events, completed her Spartan Trifecta and her very first full marathon while training with us. She continues to achieve greatness in all she does and that’s why she’s the BOM!

and Jamie G. is the BOM to be!

CONGRATULATIONS TO JAMIE GRUENWALD!

Boot Camper of the Month

This lady is the ultimate Super Hero!!!!

Jamie has been a member of Fit Body Boot Camp since July of 2013.  She is ALWAYS smiling, ALWAYS positive and ALWAYS gives it her all. Two years into the program, Jamie had a fainting spell and was unable to workout until tests determined the cause. Sadly, the blackout, as well as the time off caused her to worry and fear set in. It was difficult for her to get back to her regular workout routine. She looked for alternative ways to get her workouts in. She was determined. Her determination helped her to overcome her fear and she eventually returned to Boot Camp with more dedication and persistence than ever. She came back disciplined in her approach and very goal oriented. She worked hard not only on her physical strength, but mental strength as well.

In 2017 she completed the following races: Disney 10k, Into the wild 10k, Angels 5k, as well as 5 total Spartan Races.  She completed her Spartan Race Trifecta, three of the most grueling obstacle course races around, consisting of a sprint (3+miles), a super (8+miles) & a beast (13+miles), totaling over 24 miles of difficult terrain, heavy lifting and insane obstacles.  But She’s not done there. She still plans to complete a Disney 5k and a Terrain Race before the year is over. and maybe, just maybe, she will find a way to finish one last Spartan race to complete a double Trifecta.

Jamie personifies the demeanor and attitude we not only seek, but one that proves successful in tackling our exercise regimen. The Fit Body Boot Camp crew noticed the transformation in her, both physically and mentally. They noticed her taking on new challenges, with focused determination on working toward lifting heavier, so she was unanimously chosen to be this month’s BOM!

Trainer Val is quoted as saying, “I’ve been here for over a year and Jamie’s push up is the most perfect push up I’ve seen so far!”

Way to go, Jamie!

 

Riley & Makena, they are the BOMs!

Congratulations to our Teenage Boot Campers of the month!

IMG_0891.PNG

Friends helping each other to better health.

Riley and Makena are regular attenders at Fit Body Boot Camp in Foothill Ranch. You won’t usually see one without the other, although, they do keep up a regular fitness regimen whether together or not.

IMG_4783.JPG

These two girls do more than encourage each other to stay fit!  Surprisingly, they are only 17 and seniors in high school. They go to school, they are on the cheer squad, they both have jobs and Riley even student teaches as well, yet they still find time to take care of themselves and are committed to getting to boot camp sessions.  Never have they come in without a huge smile on their faces, ready to have fun and work hard. They not only encourage themselves, they encourage others. These days, most teenagers do not have the drive and determination of these two when it comes to fitness. They demonstrate the benefits of consistently working out, showing a better ability to stay focused on other activities, perform better in school and take nutrition more seriously.

Recently, they were on a mission to prepare themselves for prom so they remained devoted to pushing each other and making sure to attend workout sessions on a regular basis.IMG_3327.JPG

Workout buddies really do make a difference and are important for success. Studies show a 43% drop rate for those who workout out alone compared to a 6.3% drop rate for those working together with a partner.

And according to Elizabeth Lombardo, PhD, MS, PT, psychologist & physical therapist, “Having a reliable workout buddy increases your chances of sticking with your program & can provide some healthy competition while keeping you within safe limits.”

So Congratulations, to Riley & Makena for proving that a buddy makes a difference!

 

More BOMs coming your way!

CONGRATULATIONS TO PAT & PATTI

BOOT CAMP MEMBERS OF THE MONTH!

IMG_9504.JPG

LOVE IS IN THE AIR!

Bright and early at the crack of dawn, you will find both Pat & Patti ready to get their fitness on. They start their day in prayer & meditation and then it’s to boot camp they go. There’s something to be said for couples who start their mornings together and take their health seriously. And there’s something to be said for a wife who wants her husband to join her. And there’s especially something to be said for a husband who listens to his wife when she wants to bring him along to a workout.

Pat and Patti both embody the inviting culture and family connection at Fit Body Boot Camp. They have made arrangements to have their daughter join in during her college break to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle, and have befriended just about everyone they come across. If you were new to the 5:00 or 5:30 am session, chances are you were welcomed by Patti as she will always seek out any new person who walks in the door to make them feel comfortable and encourage them to do what they can and not be intimidated. Pat is also a member of Trainer Ali’s Level 1 Hike Club and helped the program by being the “sweep,” which basically means he has to wait for everyone to reach the hike’s end before finishing himself….not a popular job. As you can see, Pat & Patti clearly put others before them and make an amazing team to brighten the day with smiles on their faces every morning.

And together, they both make the WORLD’S BEST COOKIES EVER!

Congratulations to both of you for exuding your love on everyone and being great examples to family and health!
