This is motivating...
A dose of motivation can make a huge difference.

The best part of my job is seeing clients change their life. Whether they drop a few sizes, lose the baby weight, get off their blood pressure meds, or shrink their waist, the enthusiasm is always contagious.

There really isn’t a clear way to describe the happiness and confidence that settles in once you’ve realized your fitness goal. You have to experience it.

Though each successful client has unique goals, one element unites them.

They all have a strong desire. It’s this desire that fuels their motivation to take action.

You see, I am in a unique position. I meet and see everyone’s progress. I know how to get you (or anyone else who walks through my door) into great shape. I can coach you through a 50-pound weight loss. I can guide you to a healthier body. I can even train you into a toned athlete.

But there is one catch.

You’ll need to follow through with the plan and take action.

Saying that you want to get into great shape isn’t enough. You need a strong desire—and that’s just half of the equation. The other part (and the most important) is ACTION.

Nothing happens until you take action.

You can want it, think about it, mull it over, ponder it, plan it, and then re-plan it. But nothing happens until you take action.

While I may not know your story—you may be dissatisfied with your body and know that you can improve your fitness level. You want to look better, to have more energy, to experience fewer aches and pains, and to enjoy the satisfaction as you achieve your goals once and for all.

I know that all of my successful clients were once in your shoes. They wanted to change their bodies. They felt urgency. And then they did what most fail to do. They took action and made the changes and followed the plan.

But there is more to it than that. They committed to a program, did the exercise, stuck to their eating plan and met their goals. There’s nothing more gratifying than getting back into those clothes that now sit in the back of your closet.

People who take massive action get massive rewards. And those that simply talk about losing weight will continue to put weight on, year after year. I see this happen a lot with people who put off exercise.

So what do you want?

  • To drop 20 pounds?
  • To feel younger?
  • To look better in your bathing suit?
  • To become healthier?

How bad do you want it? How much desire do you have? Enough to take MASSIVE ACTION?

The rewards are great IF you do.

Congratulations to Sandy for being the March Student of the month!
"Sandy has done an amazing job in The Boot Camp Girl program. I remember how push-ups were challenging for her on her first day and now she is impressing everyone on how strong she has become. She also helps to set the pace which helps everyone around her to work harder. She has also completely changed her eating and lost 10 lbs in one month! She also is setting a positive example for her friends and they have followed her lead with healthier eating habits. Thanks to Sandy for all of her help and positive influence on everyone around her!" -Stephanie

"Sandy always makes each workout so much fun! The progress she has made in The Boot Camp Girl program is incredible!

"Sandy is a great role model and inspiration to others. She always pushes her hardest to bring her fitness to new levels. She gives 110% at every session and she has reached every goal she has set for herself. It was a pleasure having her be a part of the bootcamp family and we wish her all the best in her travels!" -Alex

"Sandy always gives 100% in workouts. She pushes herself and others to excel to the next level of an exercise or fitness goal. She has embraced the transformation challenge and has achieved great success by changing her eating and exercise habits. She embraces physical fitness as part of her everyday life. Sandy is always ready and willing to help other students or instructors with exercises or setting up for class.

Things are really good, Stephanie. Feeling stronger and better than ever. Celebrated my 60th. Buying new clothes (I've never been in size 6 pants!), did five 5K runs over vacation (one was in 33 minutes -- very flat terrain), water skied, paddle boarded (at Gunpowder Falls, inspired by your field trip), ran a mile in less than 10 minutes. What I thought was a bunion is not bothering me. I haven't taken migraine meds since May -- used to require them 3-4 times per month minimum. I'm doing work outs that were impossible when I first started in February. It's unbelievable what a difference 6 months can make! You are doing God's work 😉! Thank you so much
- Anne

You are doing a great job. Thanks for putting so much thought, effort and expertise into our workouts. Keep up the great work you do. The results, variety of workouts, available time slots/flexibility of scheduling, length of class time, support from coaches and others in the class.
- Tammy

The program is flexible and tons of support from the instructors. I like the support system that trainers provided. I also like all the great workouts every time I go.
- Dorris

Question: What makes you want to refer others to the program? "Everything! The encouragement, feedback, fun activities, challenging workouts, and positive trainers!"
