10 Years

I have to say, I am feeling a bit reflective of late.  This October we are celebrating 10 years of launching Boot Camp Challenge®.  So, I decided I would take you down memory lane and show you what "basic boot camp" (original name) looked like 10 years ago...
  • I thought launching a fitness class at 6am was STUPID!
  • Our first assessments consisted of body comp, measurements and a TWO mile run (which no one completed).
  • We had no consent and waiver forms.  I KNOW, my attorney's would have KILLED me.
  • We had no nutritional component.  We were going to "outsource" that!
  • Said this would be the only camp I would do.  Again, I did NOT want to get up this early on a regular basis. 
  • I was the only trainer.
  • I did not believe the results of all the campers at the end of camp.  People don't lose that much body fat in 6 weeks.  I only did a second one to make sure the results were accurate.  (They were :)
And the rest, as they say, is history.
  Here is to another 10 years of great successes with Boot Camp Challenge®.  Except this time, YOU will help create the memories.
