Charity Bootcamp Supporting The Langley Christmas Bureau

This weekend, The Bootcamp Effect held its 3rd annual bootcamp for a cause supporting the Langley Christmas Bureau.

The generosity of our Bootcamp Community was tremendous as we raised $1432 for the cause.


Thank you. Thank you for being such a wonderful group of people. I know our sponsored family of 4 (with 2 young girls), will have an amazing Christmas thanks to you.

I hope the workout was larger than life and that you all pushed your physical capacity in such a positive setting.

We had 58 people in this year’s rendition with 6 teams vying for the most reps in 8 exercises.

Here’s the workout:


And here’s the results:

Team #2 took first with a name of Santa’s lil lifters written on their sheet. With a name like that, they must have been on PED’s. I’ll have them tested first thing on Monday 😉

Team 1 started on the first exercise. Team 4 started on the forth exercise and so on.

And now, an impromptu and possibly questionable holiday song about bootcamp…

Sleigh balls thrown, then you’re rowing,
On the turfs, sleds are pushing,
A beautiful sight,
We’re happy tonight
Working out at bootcamp effect.

Up and down in a wall ball
Makes you lean against the cold wall,
We breathe out loud
As we work real hard
Working out at bootcamp effect

In the warmup we can do a bar hang
because our rig is 56 feet long

We’ll say no problem to modify
Cause we care about everyone

Later on, we’ll conspire
As we create a new month
To face unafraid,
The plans that we’ve made,
Working out at bootcamp effect

In the workout we may do a complex
Or do a plank waterfall
We’ll have lots of fun with deadlifts
Adding them with pullups and toes to bar

Get results, ain’t it thrilling
Your ‘tude aint it willing,
We’ll frolic and play, the BE way
Working out at bootcamp effect

Merry Christmas!

P.s. All proceeds from the charity bootcamp go towards buying food and presents for a family in need this Christmas, with the remainder of the funds being donated to the Langley Christmas Bureau to disperse as they see fit. The Langley Christmas Bureau is a completely volunteer based charity supporting Langley families in need during the holiday season.
