Final Day of S2S Boot Camp! - WooHoo!!!

Saturday, May 30, 2009

Four Weeks of intense quick workouts and stimulating challenges and the Sweatsuit - Swimsuit Boot Camp made an athlete out of me. I may be a long way from meeting my weight-loss goal, and don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for the 24 pounds and 2 dress sizes I've lost; just the same, I now consider myself -

"a person who is trained or skilled in exercises, sports, or games requiring physical strength, agility, or stamina." (Merriam-Webster) -

When I made the decision to do the boot camp I truly believed that I would become stronger and have more stamina and flexibility. I just didn't know how much I would enjoy the process. Oh yes, I've got sore muscles and I may not have the cleanest house on the block, I've learned so much in four shourt weeks.

I've learned that I can get results in a quick, intense workout using the Spark Videos. I also learned that I can start with a milder version of an exercise; and, with repetition of the same exercise, develop an ability to advance, doing the exercise with more strength and intensity.

The most important lesson that I believe I have learned is that being an athlete is knowing that by consistently challenging myself physically, and mentaly, my emotional and spiritual well-being prospers. My faith that I can do what is required is stronger and my joy is increased when I have met a physical challenge by pushing through the mental roadblocks of doubt, frustration, and fear.

Boot Camp has given me the tools I need to continue to grow as an athlete.

    I tried doing the New YOU bootcamp, the one at the beginning of the year. I did it about a week ago, and I only got to about day 5. The cardio 5 times a week is what got me. Congrats on finishing bootcamp!
