You are simply the best! You have made me feel a part of boot camp, and so have the girls. Thank you!

Today was my 12th day of bootcamp and I really noticed a difference. Mostly in my level of endurance, but also my legs are beginnning to feel a bit toner like the old days. 🙂 I know I still have a long way to go, but just wanted you to know that I felt a breakthrough today!! Yippee!! I think 8 weeks of this is exactly what I need. I had let injuries sideline my for the most part and am loving the way I am feeling since starting with you, so thanks for offering such an awesome program.
See you Monday morning!
Has anyone told you today how great you are? Tammy ROCKS THE HOUSE!! Thanks for all you do!

Hi Tammy, Just wanted to let you know that I am absolutely loving bootcamp. I am NOT a morning person so getting up at 5am was the scariest part for me but because it’s so fun when I get there, I am not having as hard of time getting out of bed as I thought I would. You are a great teacher because you push us, encourage us but don’t make us feel like a loser if we can’t keep going. You are awesome and just wanted you to know.
I can't wait until we do our final measurements... I know even with out them that my body has seriously changed! I have more energy and my pants are fitting loose! I am feeling more and more like myself again. I can't believe how heavy I let myself become. I found out about six weeks ago that I have insulin resistance and I have a family history of diabetes so I'm really working to loose weight so I don't end up a diabetic by the time I'm 30. My doctor wants me to go on a weight loss drug but I do not want to. I want to loose weight a natural and healthy way that will stick, not some easy way out where I will gain it all back as soon as I stop taking the drug. Bootcamp has really motivated me and kept me on track with my nutrition and weight loss. I really appreciate you and I have enjoyed doing this so much.
I have somewhat of an unusual testimonial I thought I'd share with you. On Wednesday after our hike I had a dentist appointment to have a crown work up on a tooth that broke. My dentist is here in Yorba Linda, and her name is Caroline Dang.....she's a great dentist. She was drilling away on my tooth when the anesthetic started to wear off.....I motioned her, and she stopped and gave me another shot and continued. She still wasn't finished when I felt the pain coming back again.....she had to stop again and give me yet a third shot to numb me so she could finish. She couldn't understand why the medication was going through me so quickly because I had to have a crown once before and that didn't happen. I mentioned that I had just gone on a "climb up Mt. Everest" that morning and she said that was it.....my metabolism was running so high that the medication was running through my body faster than normal. She was impressed.....so was I!
I really enjoyed the hike....even though I am so badly out of shape, I just hung in there and made it to the top.....like everyone else.....and boy was that view gorgeous! I appreciate that you lag behind for us slower ones.....you make us feel so good about ourselves.....I can't wait for next Wednesday's hike! Thank you,

I was completely bored with exercising. I have exercised my whole life and needed a change. It's great to be excited about my workout program again. I'm beginning by 3rd camp soon!

The Adventure Boot Camp is simply the best! I particularly like the variety of activities and the sense of fun that's built into the program. I really felt like I was getting the maximum benefit out of the program. I highly recommend the program to anyone wanting to improve their fitness and overall health.

I have to admit I was a little skeptical about something entitled "Boot Camp". I envisioned a lot of yelling and not the most nurturing environment. However, since day one of camp, I have been nothing but thrilled to wake up and hang out with my newly acquainted friends. After two camps, I have learned so many new exercises that have stirred muscles I didn't know I had! The biggest change for me has occurred in my arms, hips and abs. I feel so much leaner and firm. I'm into a size 4 and my energy level has seen a significant boost. So, whether it's interval training with weights or yoga and Pilates, I look forward to every morning's new adventure.

This fitness and weight loss program is honestly the best gift I have given myself. It is motivating, stimulating and challengingeverything my old routine lacked. It jumpstarts my day and I have met a wonderful group of women from all walks of life. I receive dedicated personal instruction - I couldn’t ask for anything more in an exercise program. You need to do this for yourself.

I arrived at boot camp overweight and out of shape - a true couch potato who loved food and hated exercise. But, I knew it was time for a change and John's boot camp sounded like just the cure. What I was really looking for was something to jump start me into better fitness and eating habits. What could be better than four weeks of intense fitness training with other women under the guidance of an experienced trainer? And the classes were great! The variety of activities and pace of the class made the hour fly by each day. Don't get me wrong, it was a lot of hard work. John pushed me harder than I would ever push myself working out alone. But he also allowed for the individual abilities of each participant. It didn't matter that I was the slowest or the weakest. What matters is that I worked at and improved at everything. And the results are impressive. During the four weeks, I lost eight pounds. I lost two inches each around my chest, waist, and hips. I also lost over one inch on each arm and leg. I improved my one mile run time by 10%. Plus, I have more energy than ever. Best of all, it has given me just the boost I was looking to attain. I'm now eating better, sleeping better, and exercising regularly. I have the hope and belief that I can continue my new fitness habits and my journey to a leaner and healthier me. And I'm looking forward to returning to future boot camps to challenge myself again.
