MMB – Boot Camp Homework

Hi Everyone,

Happy Monday to you!  Did you have an awesome weekend?  I hope you are walking into your Monday rejuvenated, refreshed, and ready to take life on!  Excellent work by everyone who was able to make it out to classes this past week.  This past weekend was special because it was the St. Patrick’s Day Boot Camp on Saturday and Running Boot Camp on Sunday!  Joanne Vieira, Ken Vieira, and Paula Allen deserve special recognition for making it out to both!  Way to go guys! 

Erin and Brian Campbell won the costume contest for most spirited on Saturday!    Check out their photo.  Gotta love the socks!

  • March Contest – Liquid Green = Liquid Life is still going on.  Continue to log your green juices and smoothies and let’s find out who is consuming the most greens out there!  Winner receives a $60 class card.
  •  NO BOOT CAMP ON SATURDAY!  As a reminder, I’ll be away at my fitness conference.  I have a work out listed below that you can use on Saturday to fill in for Boot Camp.  Grab a friend and do the work out together!  I’d love to hear how you did 🙂

  • Spring Fitness Challenge begins on April 1st!  It’s time for our spring fitness challenge where you’ll go through a variety of fitness tests for six weeks in order to measure your progress and improvement over six weeks.  For every boot camp, the first 30 minutes are focused on fitness tests that are recorded.  The second 30 minutes will be be a variety of boot camp style drills that will tax your body and leave you dripping wet and fired up!
