It’s not an easy feat to become a Burn Athlete. It takes dedication, guts, motivation, determination and a ton of discipline. Not only do our female Burn Athletes have to be below 15% body fat, but they also have to complete our Strength and Conditioning Assessment in under 10 minutes. It might seem simple on paper, but believe us when we say it’s a true challenge!
Today we’re shining the light on our Burn Athlete of the month, Beth Williams, and what makes her stand out above the rest. Let’s see what’s in her gym bag?…

How did you find out about Burn?
Burn fell into my lap! I was getting CPR/AED certified and a burn trainer beside me in class suggested that I interview with a guy named Devan who was starting up a brand new boot camp in the area and needed trainers… I remember one of the first sit down meetings with Devan included him asking me what my ultimate goal was and I replied with “I want to own my own gym one day.” Little did I know that 4 years later, I’d be the owner of a Burn Boot Camp in Cary with a second one on the way in Chapel Hill!
