Week of 9/30/12

Schedule Change for This Week

In Fairfax, classes are Monday and Wednesday this week due to the BFA-Fairfax Open House. No parking, plus many boot campers will be attending the Open House.

Don’t forget that starting this week, we’ll start to meet inside to check-in. We’ll go outside for a bit, then finish inside due to lack of light. So remember to dress appropriately (layers, hat, etc.)

Since we’re moving inside, break out your jump ropes. I love when we can start doing this again!!

See everyone Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday (M & W in Fairfax, Tu in Essex at ADL and Sat in Essex at Aspire Studio).

Week in Review

Fairfax

Monday was squat presses, bar-facing burpees, and wheelbarrow suicides. We were doing most of it in the dark, but I could still see the sweat on everyone! Last Thursday by Lisa Schukei:   ” Just when you thought it was safe to come to Boot Camp….Zombie Attack!!! What a fun warm-up. At one point Amber ran past like a gazelle with Chris hot on her tail running like a zombie cheetah. I noticed some zombie groups planning strategies to group attack their human prey…yikes! We followed up with an Intense 100 rep workout..  This was  our last all-outside workout so we took advantage of the extra space.  Tricep Dips, Squats, Walking Lunges, Push-Ups, Step Hops…arms and legs  were burning! I even heard the infamous, “This is Stupid!” a few times,  a sure sign everyone was working hard to get stronger, leaner and fitter.  The best part for me was seeing the smiles, camaraderie, and encouragement in each group, you guys rock!  Good News of the Night: Brenda is about to become a grandma in just a few short weeks!! ”

Essex

Tuesday we struck gold with all of the medicine balls at ADL. They’re brand new!  Boy, we’re going to have fun with them! We had an amazing workout with wall balls, burpees, and suicides. It all ended with partner med-ball sit-ups. The stars of the night were the kids! These boys were machines, plus they wanted to learn about exercises they could do at home. That’s what I love about our boot camp classes . . . families working out together. Amber & Marianne, Paula & Betty, Christine & Miriam, Barb & Rebecca, Lisa & Kris, Laura & Angela, Pam & Jessica, plus the boys paired up and worked incredibly hard! Looking forward to this Tuesday.

Paula’s Trip on Saturday: Yup…..It was a rainy Saturday morning…What a wonderful day to sleep
in…..Not!…We had a hardworking and determined group of eight that
got up and moved, complained and groaned! Kudos to you! Lisa D and her  husband Jeff, nice to have you join us Jeff! There was Kris G.,who was off for a run after class! Laura G., Betty B. (can you believe that!),  Crystal L., Mariam H., and better late than never…Karen G. showed up for the last part of class, once she found her keys! Not trying to toot our own horn… but before most of you even opened your eyes we completed 75 each j.jacks, x-c skis, lateral lunges, and windmills, warming up….Then right into 350 squats, 140 rear lunges, 125 push ups, 110 burpies and crunches. We all finished up with 200 ab moves…. Not bad, all before 8 am…Great job everyone!! Toot! Toot! … See you next
Saturday at 7:00am!!
