Not Quite Boot Camp

Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:14 pm by Drew

I don't know that anyone will read this, but I'm going to say it anyway...

Starting Sunday, I'm getting off my butt and doing what I'm supposed to. For the past three weeks, I've been getting up early and going to the gym, but I haven't followed it up with cardio and diet. (Cardio - no excuse. Diet - its been a bit hectic)

So I'm making a public commitment to do better for at least the next …

Come Run With Us

Fri Jan 15, 2010 7:54 pm by Drew

Marcus and I did the Walt Disney World half marathon on January 9. We both had done a half marathon before, but never in such a large group.

The run was great. It started outside EPCOT, ran over Disney roads, then through the Magic Kingdom (including running through Cinderella's castle), and back to EPCOT.

While it was fun, it would have been better in two ways: 1. not be so stinking cold …

Boot Camp is Over. Now What?

Fri Apr 09, 2010 3:53 pm by Drew

One of the worst things about boot camp is when it ends. Yes, it is wonderful to not have people yelling at you to "Hold Plank!!" for an hour, but what do you do after that in order to not lose the progress you made?

Let's get some ideas, people!

A Shot of Motivation for those in need

Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:04 pm by Drew

A couple thoughts to motivate you in the hard times.

If you quit when things get hard, you will never realize exactly what you can do and how far you can go.

The saying goes "Pain is weakness leaving the body." I'd like to add that pain is also a way to remember that you were built for more than eating and sitting. I remember some of the days that were the hardest and I HATED …

Confession Corner

Fri Apr 09, 2010 4:01 pm by Drew

Okay, so I did boot camp last year. Three of them, in fact. Since then... let's just say I fell off the wagon and haven't tried to catch it till recently.

I went from 270 (1/09) to 237 (8/09), mostly because of boot camp. However, after August, I have done very little, except run occassionally. I'm back around 255. I CONFESS!!

I know that I am not the only one. Someone else 'fess up. …

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to take the time to write this letter because trying to talk to all of you one on one is hard and I'm afraid I will leave someone out who is very important to me. So I wanted to tell you some things that have been on my heart the last two weeks, and I wanted to make sure you all heard it right and straight from me.

This boot camp has been an amazing experience for me, from the first day I started thinking of ideas for it, to over 140 of you registering and coming to us in hopes to change something about your self, and believing that you can with Banjo, Paula, and I encouraging you - that in and of itself means so much to me.

Some of you have taken your training and diet to a level only equaled by world-class athletes. Others are trying very hard to be disciplined enough to work this into an already crazy life style. And some of you are just along for the ride and learning a little here and there, but haven't quite committed to this experience 100% - at least not yet. I want to encourage all of you, that it still isn't to late to take it all up a notch.

If you have yet to get the response you are desiring, and know for a fact you are giving it your all, I will meet with you one on one and sit down with you until we figure out the problem. I am committed to this program making a difference in your life. I will give you a hundred percent, but only to those who will invest 100% into their efforts.

The two-week mark is probably the toughest place to be in a program like this. You are hungry, tired, sore, sleepy.... and many of you haven't felt, or seen, any results that are significant enough to brag about. YOU MUST STAY THE COURSE!

I told you in orientation that your body is like a locomotive picking up speed. This two-week investment is the biggest hurdle and hardest cross to bear. The first two weeks takes an immense amount of energy for very little return. Think of how much energy it takes a huge locomotive to get up to speed. It is the beginning of the journey as that train accelerates that takes most of its precious energy. But once we get to our cruising speed... It will take miles of track to slow you down. And at the two-week mark, the physiological investment has been made to make conditions perfect to lose weight and gain desired lean mass.

Don't throw away your hard work by stopping your train while all your energy should be focused on acceleration alone. The next two weeks I can promise results, if you are following the boot camp diet guide and showing up to class. You will change your life and physique forever.

Many of you have seen me get aggravated in class and seem rather curt with some that perform an exercise wrong. I apologize, but it is only because I want the best performance I can get out of you all. If you are doing the exercise wrong because you are modifying, or if I see you are at least trying, then just communicate with me. Those of you who missed instruction from not paying attention, I have less patients with. This makes me ornery because it can cause you to do an exercise wrong that hurts you or your partner, or at the very least, you wont get the full benefit out of the described exercise. This boot camp is very detail oriented, as is the nature of this whole program including the diet. So please for me, and for you, try to pay attention to all the instructions.

Let me close by telling each of you it is an honor for Banjo, Paula, and I to be trusted to train each of you. (If someone wrote that to me I would call "Bull Crap" he's not talking to me... but I am). For you to share 6-7 hours of your, and your families' precious time every week with me, is a humbling thing that I do not take lightly. We have put our stamp and reputation on the line. We boast of change, we believe in this program, we believe in each of you, and we want you all to be our next success story, AND YOU WILL BE... but you canNOT give up.

This, hands down, has been the greatest boot camp we have had to date... and I am grateful to every one of you. Please commit with me to finish this program with 100% effort. If you have messed up, then recommit right now.

"Never, never, never give up!"
