From Josh Saunders
Founder of The Bootcamp Effect
Serving Langley, BC

At first, I was hesitant about joining the fitness industry, it’s an unregulated field where anyone can say they are a trainer. See, I didn’t want to be the typical trainer who charged 60 bucks an hour while counting reps and holding a clipboard. In fact, I came to this realization mighty fast as my first job as a personal trainer was at a corporate gym that embodied this dinosaur model of training.

Given my athletic background, I could see this was not the way for clients to get the best possible results. After all, it’s 2015, it’s all about GROUP PERSONAL TRAINING! So I set out to build a company based on the training principles that work. Because it isn’t doing endless ab crunches, it isn’t running on treadmills for an hour, and it isn’t lifting heavy weights and then sitting around for 5 minutes. What works is those habits and routines that had been instilled in me since I was young that have essentially made me the fat burning machine I am today.

Now these types of workouts are tough to do by yourself, (trust me) and it helps like crazy having social support and a coach to guide and motivate you… By being in a group, often with “strangers”, your human will to impress, and the competitive spirit within you will help you yield YOUR GREATEST RESULTS.

I am an internationally certified strength and conditioning specialist. This is the most difficult certification to obtain in the fitness industry, and you must possess a university degree to even take the test. My passion is fitness, and am excited to share my passion and results like these with you…


“The Biggest Winner Challenge was a huge accomplishment for me. Having an actual start and finish date really made a difference on my commitment. I hit the gym 4 plus days a week and changed my eating. I completely cut out all dairy, wheat and sugar, basically going Paleo with protein shakes and bars (lots of water). The support of all the trainers and new friends I’d made was so encouraging and helpful. It IS an extended family; you are always greeted with smiles and welcomed to every class. It is such a positive and energetic atmosphere. I will keep on making myself the best “ME” I can be and I know The Bootcamp Effect Team will support me in all my challenges.
I LOVE IT There!!!”
– Marla Giacomazzi


I joined Bootcamp Effect more out of support for someone else, to be their accountability. Then once I got going on Bootcamp I was hopelessly addicted! With the trainers and other bootcampers getting along so well, it is a great environment to exercise and workout in. I consider everyone at Bootcamp my friends, and I feel like I owe everyone an explanation if I miss a class when I am usually a regular. I love the multiple options on times in the evening, it fits into my hectic work schedule no problem. I signed up slightly before The Biggest Winner 2.0 contest started, and following a four bootcamps per week schedule and taking diet tips from Josh and the other trainers, I lost over 10% of my starting body weight! I still have some weight to lose, and I will stick with The Bootcamp Effect at Bootcamp U because I know it works! Thank you Bootcamp Effect!

After having my 3rd baby I needed an exercise that would fit into my busy schedule and get my body back into my “skinny” jeans. Bootcamp has been an excellent experience all the instructors know how to push you and get great results. I always leave saying that was a good work out and I have seen the difference losing my baby weight.
– Michelle Baldinger

“After reading thru the book that Josh gave me (he’s talking about the BE Fit Nutrition rules), I decided to change what I was eating. The first thing that I did was I eliminated gluten from my diet and all processed foods. If it was in a can or premade I didn’t have it. I also I stoped having coffee and pop and drank only water and protein shakes. I also tried to eat smaller meals throghout the day. For breakfast, I would start with cereal or oatmeal and then try to eat protein and fresh veggies alternateing every 2 to 3 hours while at work. Once I got home I would usually have chicken or fish with hot veggies or a salad . I also tried to not eat anything after 8 pm.
I usually saved Saturday for my cheat meal but sometimes I would mix it up and do it on a Friday. Usually my cheat meal would be eating out at a restraunt or eating premade food. The two things that I focussed on avoiding were gluten and booze, everything else was fairgame for my cheat meal.”
– Shane Clifford


On July 4th I went for a physical and weighed in at 198lbs. I was overweight but still feeling pretty good as I was fairly active but had absolutely no thoughts or ambition to follow a proper diet. I was the running trainer for a group that ran the Scotia half marathon in June and as a thank you at our wind up party they gave me a 2 month membership to The Bootcamp Effect. I started my membership at the beginning of August but before that I took a long hard look at myself during the month of July. I looked at where I wanted to be a year from then and after mulling it over and formulating a game plan I was ready Aug 1st to implement it. Just so you know my goals were to weigh in the 160’s which was a weight that was foreign to me since high school and to run the Boston Marathon. This was a race I had run 10 years earlier when I was 50. The two best things I did for myself was to actually start my membership and to radically change my diet. I became Vegan. The first month at Bootcamp I dropped 8 lbs and was well on my way but I needed a bit more motivation and guidance. September arrived and with it was the start of the Biggest Winner. I decided to enter it to see if I could lose the 10% body weight which would get me closer to my first goal. I started at 190.2 lbs and I committed to going 4x a week to the club. I followed the guidelines laid out by Josh of writing down all my meals and jotting down my perceived effort of my actual Bootcamp workouts. Writing down my meals really worked. It took the guess work out as I could go back and see what I had eaten that week if the results I was hoping for didn’t show up on the scale. While I felt I was working out hard I never gave myself a mark of more than 8-1/2 out of 10. Even at that I was being pretty generous. I always felt I could have given more and I would always vow to do so during the next class. At the halfway point I weighed in at 179 lbs. which I was extremely happy with. I knew however that it would just get harder from here on and I really didn’t have a clue on how I was going to drop 8 more lbs. I am really not into starving. Josh had the answer for me when in one of his Emails he mentioned the 2 plate rule. It made perfect sense to me and I adopted this formula for eating during the last 3 plus weeks of bootcamp. The weight just dropped off and I weighed in on contest day at 164.8 lbs. To get to this weight I just stuck to a basic game plan of following a 4 day workout schedule, putting in a stronger effort and being absolutely religious to my diet. Doing so allowed me to hit my goal big time. I was actually trying to win the contest so I dropped a few more lbs. than I had originally planned. I have gained a few back and I am now holding steady at 168-169 lbs. One goal down one more to go. I start training Jan 7th for my goal race on May 4th and I see no reason why I will not be successful. Like the wall at Bootcamp states, there is no try I will just do it. I have now been going to The Bootcamp Effect for 5 months and have been Vegan for the same. I realize being Vegan is not for everyone, in fact it is for very few. That said it follows the same principals of Josh’s 2 plate rules, I just get my proteins from different sources. The change in my body and my mind has been very rewarding. I enjoy my workouts with my trainers and I enjoy being surrounded by like minded people. Not all my decisions in life have been winners but this one certainly has been. Thanks to everyone at The Bootcamp Effect for inspiring me to better health and for pushing me in my athletic endeavors. Thanks also for allowing me to share my story.

“The Bootcamp Effect has truely changed my life. I have always been an active person my entire life and always dedicated to staying in shape. I struggled with results for so long so I thought by working out more, that would give me instant results. I was wrong. I was always just maintaining my weight and build and never losing any inches. The problem with the gym is you dont truely work your hardest. Most people when they are tired they just give up and take a break, with the Bootcamp Effect you are forced to go that extra mile and push past the pain. Its that push and strive that everyone needs in their life to reach maximum results. I thought there was nothing out there that would work for me and when i found this bootcamp i was definately in for a surprise. The workouts are intense but so much fun at the same time. The trainers really care about each person individually and helping them reach their goals. I was impressed to see results so soon for myself, i almost couldnt believe it. I was shedding inches and pounds by the week. I have been with the Boot Camp Effect for just over 3 months now and have lost about 15lbs! My goal was to lose about 10lbs but I have ambition to keep going. If you really put your mind in the game and work at it, then this Bootcamp is a 100% success to reach your goals!”
– Nicole Benson
A year ago if someone said that I would be going to Bootcamp 3 days a week, I would have told them they were crazy!! I always thought it was something that was for all those people that are already in good shape. I am definitely proof that you don’t have to be one of those people. I know I would not be so dedicated if Josh was not invested and dedicated to helping transform us. The fact that he believes that *I* can do, which I never got from any gym, it keeps me motivated to keep going. After the first month I lost 3% body fat and 7 inches off my body. I am almost into my 5th month and loving the fact that I can feel my body getting stronger and stronger literally! I also love the fact that each class is different and never boring. Thank you Josh for your continued support and infectious enthusiasm!!
– Colleen Goodman
I’m super proud of myself. I’ve come along way. I thought it would be a lot harder than it was (well it was hard.. but you know what I mean). I knew once I signed up, I was thinking of backing out and i didn’t think i would be where i am so soon. I look back at pics and I never want to be like that again. But i cant take all the credit, your help was a big part to getting me to where i am now. Your great, your motivating, your friendly, and you yell at us sometimes..but with a smile on your face. The money is worth it.. its more $$ than a gym.. but you get more out of it.. results, meal plan, food diary and support etc it has been well worth my money.. i dont think i could of done it alone at the gym myself and in 3 months…I saw results. You get what you pay for. I didn’t know alot about working out when i worked out at the gym, and even from doing this.. I’ve learnt a lot..Thanks for the great results!!
– Samantha Cook
I am currently attending Josh’s Boot Camp. I can not say enough about this camp and great trainer. I had been wanting to improve my health for a long time but hardly had the motivation to go to the gym. I had moderate to severe asthma which really effected my exercise. I started searching for a personal trainer and then was convinced to join this bootcamp. Best decision I ever made. Now I am in the 8th week and I am feeling great and my asthma has significantly improved. When I joined the boot camp I was having a lot of fears about being able to keep up with the class and I imagined that I was going to get yelled at like a drill sergeant. Josh was the complete opposite of what I had expected. He is very professional, very energetic, respectful, inspiring and encouraging. Josh is a delight to work with and completely devoted to his job and you can tell he really enjoys what he is doing. He cares about every single person who attends the camp. Each workout is different which keeps it a challenge and is a lot of fun. Also really appreciated all the nutritional tips as well. Don’t miss your opportunity to get in shape and have fun while doing it. You will meet a lot of great people who will also be a great support team. Thanks Josh for all your hard work and dedication if it wasn’t for you I would not be where I am today!
– Tanya Onisimchuk
Thanks Josh! The bootcamp was great and so are the results! 8 weeks ago I started bootcamp with Josh now I need a whole new wardrobe! I had tried other exercise programs but never seemed to quite get the results I was looking for. Then Josh asked me to participate in his bootcamp program. Finally someone who could push me to my limits and more but still having fun at the same time. Who needs Bob and Jillian when you have Josh around. Not only did Josh help us with our fitness program He also helped us with our eating habits as well. Now I can say I am not only happier and healthier but “skinnier too”. I am well on my way to achieving my goal. See you for the next session. P.S. don’t worry Josh I just love to shop!
– Jacquie Thrussell
I just want to thank you formally for the really fantastic boot camp! Love your energy and positive attitude. It has been a blast working out! Never thought I could do it! Your knowledge on fitness and nutrition has taught myself and my family how to take the right paths in the future. Your bootcamp program has really motivated me to get moving and has given me the energy and drive I need to reach my goals. The last 9 weeks have been challenging but very rewarding. Thanks again!
– Tina Spurgeon
A BIG THANK YOU to Josh!!! I had been looking for something to kick my butt into gear for a while now and was introduced to Josh’s Bootcamp – FANTASTIC!!! Fun – Challenging – Educational. Josh taught us how to eat right and challenge our bodies to the max… The 200 Butt Blaster – WOW!!!! Josh’s PASSION for fitness and ENTHUSIASM is contagious and I encourage anyone who is looking to get in shape while making new friends and having FUN to catch his “Fitness Bug” ! ! ! Thanks again Josh ~ you ROCK!!!!!
– Mary Taylor
“It is the best thing I ever decided to try. After two babies and being at a very miserable size 12 nothing I tried would get rid of that stubborn weight. I tried joining a gym, a dance fitness studio, pilates, when that failed I tried home dvds such as Zumba, The 30 Day Shred with Jillian, Hip Hop Abs. I was stuck and nothing was working. Surfing the web one day, I stumbled across the Bootcamp Effect website and after reading all the reviews, I thought I have nothing to lose by trying it out (first week free). After that week, I was so impressed I decided to join for a month. Well the trainers are phenomenal and they kicked my butt everyday I went. Josh is as humble as they come and it is refreshing to meet a trainer that is so genuine. You can tell that Josh is living and working his passion and it shows in his dedication to his members. I have so much respect for Josh, Kurt, and Krystine and the energy they bring to the classes. It is impossible to get bored because every workout is different and so much fun. I am almost a size 8 now, my body continues to change. I feel stronger, I am more toned and I feel fantastic. I will never be able to thank the trainers enough for giving me my life back. Try it out for at least a month. You won’t regret it. Three months later and all my skepticism is gone and I plan on being a member for a very very long time.”
-Kiran Gill
As the past 10 months have been a very productive 10 months, in terms of getting back into shape. I wanted to thank you for all that you have done for me and I have been lucky to find such an easy going schedule that I am able to work it around my busy work life. Though, in recent news, since I was unable to get the shift and depot that I wanted for the coming year. As of that, I will be unable to continue Bootcamp for the forseeable future, although it has not been ruled out in my future. I regret nothing of my enrollment with The Bootcamp Effect and I have nothing but good things to say about the program and trainers. As well as you, Krystine was an excellent trainer and I will really miss her motivational tactics on me. This was not an easy decision because I have changed over these 10 months. From my burly 220lbs when we first met, to my current 203lbs with much added, and appreciated, muscle. I will definitely be passing on a good word for this company and I expect nothing but great things for this company in the future. I really would like to thank you for the opportunity to better myself and to get yelled at, it was fun.
Thank you, and Krystine for everything. You guys are second to none.
– Kurtis Wade
My back has been feeling better, but kept me out of the gym for a long time. I really enjoyed the 2 workouts that I did attend last month. My body felt pretty good after. It felt good working out again. It gives me more energy both physically and mentally. I really enjoy working out with you. I appreciate your patience with my injury and your willingness to adjust a workout just for me. People ask me why I travel so far, when I live next to a gym? I guess your genuine interest in your clients and your flexibility keeps me coming back. Thanks Josh.
– Darla Young
“Krystine, I’ve worked with other trainers and was in the gym way more than I am now but I have never seen the results as I am seeing now.
You are an amazing trainer and I love you!!”
– Ellen Campbell
I asked Josh a few questions about power training and what I can do to become a more explosive athlete. He was very knowledgeable and helpful with all the questions I had for him, not only that, he offered to train me and help me become a better athlete. His drills were unique and tailored to my specific needs. Within weeks I noticed my speed and explosiveness had increased and I was training harder than ever. As a soccer player we need to be fit and healthy, Josh made sure there was proper warm-ups and cool downs that matched just what I needed. Whether I was training for a sport or just to stay in shape, Josh had the knowledge of all the exercises I needed to know. His routines are never boring and he pushed me to the maximum. Josh is an all-around excellent trainer and he helped take my athleticism to the next level, a level I thought I could never reach!
– Scott McIndoe
Krystine, thanks for the email. I am LOVING it! Really appreciate the workouts you have prepared for us, feeling the ‘exercise pain’ during the day just the right amount, clothes are fitting looser and I’m feeling stronger each day. Also appreciate your expertise in teaching me (correcting my form) how to get the most out of each workout. I will admit that at the beginning of each dragon boating practice, I am cursing you a bit =P…but just a tiny bit and I’m grinning from ear to ear by mid-practice because I can out paddle (endurance & strength) many on our team. =D
Thanks for EVERYTHING…for taking the time to clear the air at the beginning, for your expertise, motivation and patience! I highly value all you have to offer!
– Tryva Radmacker
Just wanted to say a quick thank you for all the hard work you do. Tonight was my last class and it was very bittersweet, I will miss you guys but I’m excited about going to Depot. I don’t know if I ever would have passed the PARE without your help, motivation and guidance. You are all so amazing at what you do! The Bootcamp Effect has changed my life, and my body. I may weigh the same as I did when I started but I look completely different. I have nothing but good things to tell people about you, and I will recommend you to anyone I can. You have all made a difference in my life, and I’m sincerely grateful. Hope to see you guys again in 6 months. I will no doubt hear Krystine in my head saying “Come on Erin! We’ve got goals!” while I am gone. Take care, and keep up the good work!!!
– Erin Sutherland
Before joining to The Bootcamp Effect I thought I was in pretty good shape………I was wrong. Josh and his team have taken fitness to a whole new level for me. I have been part of several bootcamps across Canada over the years and I can say without any hesitation that The Bootcamp Effect, and its trainers, are the best I’ve come across. A couple of highlights that have kept me coming back for more:
· The classes cater to all fitness levels and goals (beginner vs veteran, weight loss vs building muscle mass)
· Highly motivated trainers that will push you
· Knowledgeable on diet and exercise as well as the science behind the two
· Very friendly environment (has a family feel to it)
· Wide array of equipment (TRX, Ropes, Medicine balls, Weights, Tires, Kettlebells etc.)
· Intense (1 hour sessions, in and out if you have a busy life style)
· Never boring (always something new)I’ve been involved in sports and working out most of my life and The Bootcamp Effect has revitalized my drive to improve my fitness level. Over the last 4 months I have increased my strength, lost body fat, and gained muscle mass. Thanks guys, I haven’t had this kind of drive to improve my fitness level in a long time!
– Fraser Taylor
I want to thank you and your staff for the wonderful bootcamp experience. I have attended bootcamps in the past but yours is definitely the best one I’ve been a part of. I do plan on coming back in the near future for sure! You have a passion for what you do and it shows.
– Colette Hagel
Tough Mudder was an awesome event and I feel very fortunate to have experienced it with you and everyone from bootcamp. I am proud to not only be a member of The Bootcamp Effect, but to also belong to this amazing group of truely awesome people. You are the best! I don’t think there is anyone else who could do what you do, as well as you do and the way you do it!
– Jason Robertson
I love my bootcamp! Yes I do feel like its mine… The Bootcamp Effect has done more for me than I can believe…or begin to understand how. It is an amazing place of support, laughter, challenges, knowledge, friendship and yes more work than I think I can do. BUT I do it…happily. When Im not there I cant wait to get back in BE land. Ok well it had to be said thank you for listening :) :) :)

bootcamp schedule

Backed By Science:
Your boot camp workouts will vary every day of the week, with each phase changing monthly. You will not get bored with the same old routine. Instead you will perform exercises designed to melt fat off your body and boost your metabolism, so you can lose weight faster. Your body will be shocked as you will be doing an hour of resistance training, cardio and core all in 1 hour. Remember there is no weight loss solution that does not require effort.

Nutritional Guidance (also backed by science):
You will get access to our members page and e-newsletter with all the information you need to make informed choices about the habits you need to make to obtain your best results. And of course, if you need to chat with one of our fitness professionals, we are always here to help.

2 Trainers with 3 Levels of Programming:
At The Bootcamp Effect, we know everyone is not the same, so we provide modifications for all exercises. And with 2 trainers in the majority of our sessions, you’ll be taken care of whether you’re a beginner, working around injury, or a seasoned bootcamp veteran needing advanced progressions. Our innovative 3 levels of workouts are designed to help you lose fat and stay injury free no matter what fitness level you are.

Fun Positive Environment:
If you’re thinking at this point, that boot camps are too tough or you have had a bad experience in the past and you don’t want to be yelled at. Then I want you to throw away these negative thoughts and limitations. All exercises can be modified to make them easier so no matter what shape you’re in, you can do this. There is only positive energy and encouragement at The Bootcamp Effect.

You getting pushed out of your comfort zone and working harder than you ever would if you were training on your own. “Beginners who workout with trainers GET MORE RESULTS than beginners who workout by themselves.” – Men’s Health Magazine (Dec 09).

Our Promise to You:
You will never think about exercise the same after you walk through our doors. At The Bootcamp Effect, our trainers are not going to stand around and count your reps and get in a conversation with you about our lives. We’re going to be motivating you, getting excited and devoting our efforts to ensure you perform each exercise correctly and with your best effort. Your results are what is important to us and we will go above and beyond to ensure you get them!

Remember, this is your body and you only have one, so take your health seriously, get the body you want, commit, and see the amazing results that will blow your friends away. Are you looking for RESULTS? what are you waiting for….

In most traditional personal training, there is way too much time sitting around talking about personal lives and counting reps. You may even see some trainers checking themselves out in the mirror!!!!!!! That’s insane!

Well what most personal trainers don’t want you to know is…

Most Langley personal trainers charge between $40-$80 per session, and with this old slow paced model of training, you probably need to schedule at least 3 sessions a week just to see the results you’d expect. So after 1 month of personal training you’d be paying at least $480/month for a cookie cutter workout from an average personal trainer.

With The Bootcamp Effect workouts, you’ll enjoy the supportive attitude and social support of your like minded workout partners, and take your efforts to the next level. I know from experience, you will work harder in group training.

See how The Bootcamp Effect stacks up against the competition

If fitness came in a bottle, everyone would have a great body. The Bootcamp Effect prides itself on providing you with the workouts, the atmosphere, and the experience that will enable you to fall in love with your health and fitness. I know when this happens, it will make all the difference for you!

And to give you the opportunity to see if we are a good fit for each other and to remove all doubt about my program, you are welcome to come try us out for a NO HASSLE FREE TRIAL WEEK!
