I admit it, I am one of those gym-goers that walks around a little unsure of where I should start and in what order I should work out my muscle groups. I have always been athletic, but I wouldn’t have considered myself strong. I would walk in to the gym and feel like I was not maximizing my time spent in there. Well, that is the person I USED to be.
As a single mom, I was teaching at a charter school, always pressed for time, and looking to change up my fitness routine. I bought 2 Groupons to try some new workout ideas. The first Groupon was for Synergy Personal Training; they offered 2 weeks of unlimited bootcamp sessions and the second was for another bootcamp, which I also tried.
Ready to try something different, I met Coach Rob for a consultation and decided to try different boot camps. I tried both the 5:30am bootcamp and Rob’s 6:15am bootcamp; 2 1/2 years later, I am still going to his bootcamp 5 days a week.
I admit that I bounced around and tried everything from the complex to the simplest of programs and my favorite, by far, is Coach Rob’s bootcamp. His focus on keeping his classes relevant, fresh, and concentrated on proper form, leave me exhausted in just 30 minutes. Rob is constantly pushing us boot-campers to our limits with positive reinforcement and makes us feel like we are in a private sessions with him. In the 2 1/2 years I have been at Synergy, there has not been one injury in our bootcamp. I think our coach’s education and ability to lead a great workout is a key reason we have such a strong core group of bootcamp attendees.
Thank goodness I have never been one to watch the scale because I weigh 10 pounds more now than I did when I started. By the BMI chart at my doctor’s office, I am considered over weight! HA! I have only increased my endurance, feel that I can protect myself if necessary, and I am stronger than I have ever been! The benefits of starting my weekdays in a positive and productive environment, with my fellow boot-campers pours over into every aspect of my life. I am living and loving sharing my life with like-minded people!
