Get into the habit of exercise with a class 3 times/week!

We all know the best way to get in shape is to do regular periods of exercise through the week. It's even better when you do it with a variety of activities including weight training, agility, cardio, stability and stretching. And wouldn't it be even better if you could do this all outside when the weather is good? In the fresh air with ocean views (in the case of my class)? After a few weeks of this you are in great shape and have gotten into the habit of exercising! Sound good so far?

This is where we do our class when it's nice out!
And now I'm going to say 2 scary words. Boot and camp. I have tried to explain in the past that boot camp is really nothing to be afraid of. In general these classes do not actually involve drill sargeant-like instructors barking orders at you and making you do push-ups in the pouring rain.

My class involves 3 x 1 hour sessions per week -- one of these classes will always be a weight training circuit in the gym; 1 will be agility and/or interval training and may involve a 10 minute run and; the other day is a mixed bag I call Game Day! You are always welcome to go at your own pace/intensity level and take breaks whenever required. We end each class with a 10-minute session of stretching and, when the classes are at the beach, this involves looking out over the ocean or up at birds and blue sky. Also, if it's raining/cold/wet, we stay in the nice, warm gym.

Do you have to be in great shape to start doing boot camp?
No, you definitely do not! I keep my classes small (no more than 12) so I can help everyone--whatever level they are at. You do need to talk to me if you have any lingering injuries or chronic physical problems that prevent you from doing any particular movement--but, generally, all exercises can be modified for your fitness level.

Time and Cost
Mon/Wed/Fri Mornings at 6:15. Our classes are early so you can get your workout done and still make it to work! Cost is $10/class - prepaid monthly!
