“I started boot camp late summer of 2012 on a 30 day Groupon. I was skeptical because I have always been afraid of lifting weights. I always thought lifting weights caused weight gain which I now know is a common misconception! I have for the most part been active and worked out doing different programs over the years. I knew I wasn’t in the shape I was in before children but I didn’t realize how out of shape I was until I started boot camp! After I had my second child, I had a really difficult time motivating myself to be consistent with working out. I was disappointed with myself for not pushing myself the way I used to. I started going 2-3 times per week and eventually worked myself up to 5. I was so sore in the beginning and didn’t expect to stick with it.
But here I am over a year later at boot camp and I still attend 5 days a week. Boot camp has significantly improved my biking, running and overall fitness level. I have lost over 30 pounds and 14 percent body fat. In addition, I have dropped 3 clothing sizes. I have never felt healthier or stronger.
Devan is amazing; I could not made it to where I am without his nutrition advice, killer workouts and encouragement. You will not find a trainer who cares more about their clients than Devan! All of the women that go to boot camp are very supportive. My daughters even love boot camp and it’s important to me knowing that I am setting a good example for them. I would be lying if I said it was easy but it is definitely worth it!”
