I joined bootcamp at the start of the summer after being recommended by Marcus, a long time member as well as a co-worker and friend of mine. I had never been to a bootcamp or any other type of group training so I was quite nervous and didn’t know what to expect. From day one Josh and his team made me feel extremely comfortable starting from a very beginner fitness level to where I am today. The type of workouts Josh puts together along with the nutritional information have allowed me to reach and set new goals faster than I ever thought. If you ask anyone that knows or works out with me Bootcamp Effect has truly changed my life. My success from the biggest winner challenge this fall was the result of 100% consistency, both in getting my workouts in 4-5 times a week as well as building a solid meal plan. Preparing meals at the start of each week had a positive impact on my energy levels for my workouts and decreased my chances of making the wrong choices. I never felt guilty having a higher fat or calorie meal here and there because I would make sure it was built into my weekly plan. The most valuable aspect of Bootcamp to my success is the many new friends I’ve met in the 7:30PM time slot. These people along with Josh and his trainers are your biggest keys to success that you won’t get at your everyday gym. Thank-you to Felix for challenging me and making sure I get to every workout, Rani for the nutrition and meal planning tips, Rene and Gary for making me comfortable at bootcamp right from the start, and of course Marcus for getting me to suck it up and start in the first place. Overall bootcamp is a challenge I need in my life to help reach goals I find very difficult to achieve at a contemporary gym. Thanks again Josh and your team, you definitely have a Bootcamp Effect advocate for life.
