We hear a variety of myths about fitness and our services as people are considering becoming a part of our Fit Family.

For example:

-I need to get in shape to become a boot camp member

-I’m already in shape so 30 minutes can’t possibly be enough

-I play/ do xyz sport so I don’t need to do any strength training

And the list goes on…

Our dedicated and successful early morning client Karen C came to us already in fantastic shape but looking for something she could do on a tight schedule.

Karen was in great shape as a volleyball player in high school and in early adulthood. She had children and noticed when her youngest was about 1 year old that she had gotten out of shape.

She was inspired to resume athletics when she saw Ironman participants in the heat of their big triathlon event.  She convinced some friends to sign up and train with her for a sprint triathlon. Over the course of the next four years, she trained for and participated in many triathlon races, but eventually the time commitment (both to training and away from her family) took its toll. Karen found herself burnt out on triathlons and looking for something faster and more convenient.

Enter exercise DVDs.

For Karen, the issue was never about getting to the workouts or getting the work done. She was and is very self-motivated, but after several years of individual sports and training alone- doing videos in her basement- she was bored and lonely.

Karen says, her initial goal was to get to FBBC 3-4 times per week. Most weeks she makes it 5-6 sessions per week. She says she hasn’t lost any weight or inches but that wasn’t the objective.

What she wanted to see if she could do was maintaing her already great physical shape with less time dedicated to exercise.  She has done this AND met some new people and gotten closer to existing friends. We call that a win.

​​We talk a lot about the ladies that work out with us at FBBC but what about those awesome men that come in too? Today, I’m going to highlight one of our fantastic FBBC dudes!

Dan Martin is a great guy that wasn’t new to fitness, but he wasn’t making much effort to make fitness and his health a priority. As time goes by you wake up one morning, look in the mirror and say, “OMG, where did these rolls come from? Why can’t I fit into my pants anymore?”

Even though Dan knew how to work out he would let life get in the way as he put it and really wasn’t doing anything towards fitness.

From a workout standpoint I wasn’t doing anything and over the past 10 years I added about 30 pounds to my body. Physically I wanted to change. When I’m active or working out I have always been in a better place emotionally and mentally.”

This is true for most people. I really don’t hear people say they feel awful after a workout even if it was a tough one. Most people feel great afterwards and when they attend more often, each day they feel better and better.

One of Dan’s excuses for not working out before was “life getting in the way”. With the 30-minute workouts Dan does not allow life to get in his way anymore. He has seen how you can fit fitness into your life if that’s what you really want.

The schedule offered by FBBC is perfect since there are various sessions throughout the day and they are only 30 minutes. I am able to swing in for a morning workout to get the blood flowing and back home to get ready for the day before anyone else is even up.

My energy level is so much higher which makes is easy for me to get up in the morning and make it to my 6:00am session. I feel great and FBBC gave me the kick start I needed to get back into fitness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.”

I honestly love how bootcamp works with anyone’s schedule. There really is no excuse not to be here. You get in and get out, bam your workout is done in 30 minutes. And when you pay attention to what you put into your body your results will come faster and you’ll be amazed. It just takes some effort and determination on your end. We got you on the rest.

During the challenge I lost 15 lbs, 3.75” and 2.5% body fat. I really like seeing the numbers going in that direction but more importantly I feel so much better physically and emotionally. 

I have made significant physical changes but more importantly I have changed my behavior by working out consistently and eating better to ensure a healthier lifestyle. I still enjoy the same foods I used to eat, just not as much or as often.”

Dan it was such a pleasure to see in the morning. We are very proud of his achievements!

Go get it Dan!

Today’s message is about staying the course…
On every path there will be obstacles;
there will be setbacks:
  • Injuries
  • Stressful times at work
  • Emotional stress
  • Loss of family members/ pets
  • Financial stress
But it is crucial that no matter what you keep going forward all the ways you can. 
You might need to take a break from your favorite thing to let an injury heal or to restore financial balance to your life
but what can you do in the meantime? 
Can you keep a food log?
Can you go for walks? Can you do Youtube videos at home?
Can you do a travel workout?
We have all heard that “where there is a will there is a way”. This is true. 
It is crucial that regardless of the setback or the circumstances you keep doing the best you can. 
Listen, everyone “falls off the wagon” from time to time. Some folks fall off it a few times a year. Some seem to be in an on and off
pattern until things click…
the most important thing is to keep getting back on it, no matter how many times you fall off.
No journey is a straight line to success.
Just keep doing the best you can.
We are here for you and committed to your success,
Megan K and the team
