BOOTCAMP #5- QUINCY- “ONGOING” – Please read the info thoroughly and the instructions on how to sign up!!

INFO: THIS WILL NOT BE YOUR TYPICAL RUN A LAP AND DO SOME JUMPING JACKS TYPE BOOTCAMP!! I WILL BE RUNNING THESE CAMPS FOR 1 HOUR AS MODIFIED VERSIONS OF MY BOXING/MMA/CIRCUIT TRAINING BASED CONDITIONING PROGRAMS THAT I RUN WITH PRIVATE CLIENTS. WE’LL BE RUNNING THROUGH A GREAT BLEND OF CARDIOVASCULAR CONDITIONING, STRENGTH, TONING, AND MUSCULAR ENDURANCE!!

DATES: EVERY WEDNESDAY AT 645PM & SATURDAY AT 8AM FOR AS LONG AS WE WANT

LOCATION: 254 Quarry Street, Quincy  OR BASEBALL FIELD AT BOTTOM OF THE HILL(TBD WEEKLY)

INSTRUCTIONS: To Sign Up for the Camp, fill out the New Client Intake Form - http://www.snf-fitness.com/client-intake-form/ – and in the NAME field write your “Name – QUINCY ONGOING” in all Capitals. That way I’ll know that you’re signing up for the Camp and not 1 on 1 Training at this stage. You’ll also need to go to the Downloads area, and go to “Form 1″ – print that out, fill it out, and bring it to Session 1.

PAYMENT: $12/Session Walk-In fee – no more pre-paid options


BUILD YOUR OWN “BOOT CAMP”

______________________

I’m once again offering the “Build You Own Boot Camp” option. It works as simple as this…… Get a small group of friends together (minimum of 4 and maximum of 10) that want to workout, pick 2-3 tentative days/times that work best (camps are best when done 2-3 times per week), send me your ideal schedule, I will price it out, and I will bring the Boot Camp right to you!!! I’ve done this successfully twice in the past and it’s worked out great. My most recent one was put together by a Client of mine that found 5 girls to work out with her, and we built a Camp instantly.

Also, these Camps should be considered as modified versions of my VERY popular 1 on 1 Sessions I do with Private Clients that operate off of Circuit Training/Boxing/MMA based principles. Here we do a VERY solid Full-Body workout that blends a strong cardio aspect, with Stations and equipment. I do not operate my Camps with just jogging, pushups, jumping jacks, etc. You should certainly consider this more as “Small Group Training” and you’re getting a Session that I typically charge $55-75/Session, for as little as $10-$20 per person!!

PROGRESS TRACKING/MONITORING

_______________

One of the items I try to educate my Clients on the most is properly tracking their progress. For those on Strength Programs, your progress is most likely monitored in the gym….how many pounds you’ve added to your bench press, military press, squats, etc. But, for the majority of my Clients who’s goals are primarily weight loss or toning, they need to steer their focus and mindset off of just stepping on the scale each and every morning. I try and have the majority of my Clients focus on their change in total body fat percentage as opposed to the scales. This is one of the best ways to check your balance between the “fatty” weight you’ve lost and the lean muscle you’ve added to your body. One of my absolute BEST Clients who I’ve worked with since late March has seen a complete transformation in her body and general fitness while only fluctuating approximately 2 lbs since we started(and she was a Client who first stated “I need to lose 10lbs or else!!” at our first Consultation). For Clients that are VERY overweight, yes, the ‘scale will tell your tale’ as you drop a lot of weight at the beginning of a Training Program, but you should primarily focus on your percentage changes and general appearance. I’ve purchased brand new sets of monitoring equipment that you can see under the DO’s section below.

To properly monitor your progress, follow these very general Do’s and Dont’s at the beginning, middle, and end of your Training Program….

DON’T: weigh yourself each and every day, weigh yourself at different times of the day, get freaked out if you’re weight fluctuates a couple pounds in the wrong direction, rely on internet based BMI calculators, stare in the mirror EVERY morning

DO: try and gain access to the equipment listed below, monitor weight only once a week, wait for UNsolicited “wow have you been working out” type compliments, remember that lean muscle does carry weight, take before and after photos every 4 weeks during a 12-week plus Program, focus on nutrition just as much as your “gym-time”…..(plus more tips to come…)


Recent Upgrades I’ve made in some Progress Tracking/Monitoring equipment….

  • Omron HBF-306C Fat Loss Monitor – Gives Body Fat % and BMI readings in under 15 seconds (portable hand-held style monitor)
  • Accu-Measure Body Fat Caliper – An accurate “pinch and inch” style Body Fat testing device
  • MyoTape retractable/lockable tape measure – A very accurate measurement tool that you can use accurately on yourself due to the locking mechanism – to be used on areas such as Arm, Waist, Hips, Thigh, and Calf


If Clients are unable to monitor their own progress on a personal level, I’m happy to utilize all 3 of these tools at our first Consultation, or before our very first Training Session. Second tracking/measurement round should be done after 1 month, and most certainly no earlier than every 2 weeks….
