Heres the #1 Fitness Tip
This fitness tip is so simple and yet it makes all of the difference when it comes to your results.
The sad reality is that over 90 percent of gym goers fail to achieve their goal—even after a full year of consistently exercising.
Perhaps you can relate?
It shouldn't be this way. I believe that you deserve to get the best results possible from the time that you invest in exercise.
The simple fitness tip that I share below has the power to change everything for you...
Your results are equal to the level of intensity in workout.
In other words, you get what you give when it comes to exercise and results.
When you simply go through the motions, while staying in your comfort zone, then results will always be a hope for tomorrow and not today's reality.
What exactly do I mean when I say intensity?
Intensity is a measure of how much energy you're expending while exercising. The harder you push yourself, the higher your intensity. When you're simply going through the motions of a routine, without digging down and giving it your all, the workout has low intensity and your results will disappoint.
While you exercise, pay attention to how you feel. Could you be working harder? If the honest answer is yes, then step it up a notch. It's worth it...
In addition to seeing awesome results quickly, there are two more benefits to bringing up your exercise intensity.
The first benefit is that when you bring the intensity you're able to shorten exercise time. This means less time spent sweating away in the gym and more time doing the things you really love. All while getting even better results than with longer, low intensity workouts.
The second benefit is the after burn that you'll experience after an intense workout. Simply put, this means that your body will continue to burn extra calories long after you have finished exercising. Talk about supercharging your results! Just imagine how quickly your body could transform when you begin to harness the power of exercise intensity.
One thing to remember—it's important that you never sacrifice proper form in favor of intensity. As soon as your form starts to be compromised, reduce your intensity to where proper form is achieved.
I'm here to help you transform your body (and your whole life!) through the power of fitness.
Call or email today to get started on a fitness plan that will bring the intensity and deliver the results.

Following a protocol that typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes, the practitioner uses finger pressure and traction on areas of tension in the bones, joints and soft tissue to create fulcrums, or points of balance, around which the body can relax and reorganize. Zero Balancing can help relieve body aches and pain, release restrictions in movement, and provide lasting relief from emotional distress to improve overall quality of life.

I’m from Ellicott City and I was looking for a workout that would really challenge me. I looked up Stephanie’s website online and I saw some testimonies were too hard to believe, the results were phenomenal so I took Stephanie up for a free day of boot camp. When I came, I interviewed everyone that I could get in front of and everyone had the same thing to say: they love coming, they feel good, they’ve had results, I said OK, I will buy into this. I started with a 4 month membership. I love it, I have so much fun, I’m looking forward to my workouts. I’ve made some really great friends. If you’re thinking about joining The Boot Camp Girl, please do, we are having a ball at the Clarksville boot camp!
I’ve been with The Boot Camp Girl for about a year in the Clarksville boot camp. My initial goal was to lose 20 pounds. Once I lost 10 lbs I thought that was as far as I could go, but we had so much fun in boot camp. We kept going and I met my goal of 20lbs down and I feel so much different. It’s such a great feeling to pull out all of your Winter clothes and have them be too big and have to go shopping. I have people that stop me all of the time and say “You Look Great!”. I feel like I look how i should look where before I felt too big for myself. I’m back to where I feel like I should be. I feel great!
I’ve been coming to the Clarksville boot camp for a year now and in that time frame I’ve lost 26 pounds. I’ve decreased my 1 mile time from 8 minutes to 6 1/2 minutes and I’ve run two 5K’s my best time being 22:21. I’m having a blast at boot camp, staying challenged every week, being competitive with other participants in boot camp and having a great time. Every workout I come to I feel charged up and my strength is up. Having a blast. I highly recommend The Boot Camp Girl!

I am from Columbia and I joined The Boot Camp Girl program because I was looking for a program that had everything that I need that I could just follow the program and I would just achieve my fitness and my health goals (I attend the Columbia boot camp and the Clarksville boot camp). I wanted something that had a support system through the program, with the instructors and the students. I have actually been able to achieve all of my fitness goals, I’ve lost over 20 pounds and I’ve lost almost 14 inches. I love coming to boot camp, I love the friendships that I’ve made, and I love the support system that’s here. It’s not just the exercise, but there are tools and resources to help you with the food so you could be successful there. So if you’re looking for a program that will help you to make radical and immediate changes in your overall fitness and health goals, The Boot Camp Girl is for you!
