John Atkinson

“I have been attending bootcamp for just over 3 years now and when I 1st started I told them I will commit to a month. Little did I know that I was hooked and haven’t looked back. I was in a fitness rut where I would run every day in the spring and summer then when the weather changed I would sign up a local gym with no real structure and basically go through the motions until the weather got better and repeat the same routine. When I finally committed to attending bootcamp and saw how the classes are structured, how the trainers take the time to show you proper techniques, encourage you to push yourself I finally found what I was missing in a daily workout.

Even though I would attend classes 6 days a week I still wasn’t dropping any weight and I was just fooling myself that I could eat whatever I wanted and justify it by saying “I went to gym today”. It wasn’t until August 2017 that I decided to sit down with Josh and ask him for advice on what I wanted to achieve. I asked another member Kaitlyn if she would be interested in doing this and she agreed and I think it was very beneficial because we would share ideas, meal ideas and supported each other to reach our goals and to this I want to thank her. Josh changed my whole diet and it was a struggle to change but I had to do it if I wanted to lose weight.

I have met some really good friends here and it’s great to see how everybody supports each other and helps try to achieve their goals. Emily, Jess, Kaitlyn, Meagan and the rest of the 6.30AM class I look forward to sweating out the nights’ workout.

To Josh, Karen, Joe, Ruth and all the other trainers thank you for pushing me to try to lift more. Squat more. Finally to Alicia – someone who is not afraid to use my full name when she sees me “dogging it” or standing on my sled. Thank you for your constant support and great attitude towards making my 1 hour workout worthwhile.”
