I never thought working out during my lunch break would give me energy to continue and finish my day. I’ve always wanted to work out but with my busy schedule I never found time. Our boss let us know we were starting a wellness program at work. Meeting Trainer Scott was exciting, a little nervous but I knew I was ready to workout. I let Scott know how busy my schedule is and that if he can show me to get a good workout during my lunch hour, he said yes, we can do a good 20 minute work out and you still have time to eat your lunch. I thought to myself, 20 minutes? No way! We started slow but Scott has a good eye when comes down to everyone’s individual strength and stamina. I never thought I could push myself or even feel energized after working out. I actually felt calm, centered and more focused after my work out.
I was nervous when I started the class because I hadn’t had a regular workout routine in a while before joining, but my fears were put to ease when I started. While I found the workouts difficult, they were not overwhelming and I noticed a lot of improvement in a short amount of time which was very gratifying. The variety of workouts kept me motivated; before joining Scott’s boot camp I could never work out regularly for more than a month because I’d lose interest.
My sister invited me to joining this boot camp with her. I’m very glad I listened to her! We ended up enjoying it so much that our brother decided to join as well. The other people in the class are great too. I found the environment very supportive, which just pushed me that much more to better myself.
I found the boot camp schedule very convenient. Since it’s offered at different times 5 days a week, I could easily show up a few times a week without having it interfere with the rest of my schedule.
I’d highly recommend Scott’s boot camp to anyone. Scott is a great trainer and the workouts and other people in the class are great!
