Come out and support one of your coaches as he displays his mixed martial arts talent in the cage at the War Memorial in Ft. Lauderdale, this Friday night.  You can see the front desk for more info on tickets, or call 305-225-4610.  You’ll find out why they him “The Specimen”!


This Saturday, Nov 1st, we tackle the magnificent Key Biscayne bridge at 7 am SHARP!  If you’ve never run the bridge, now is your chance to do it!!  It’s a great workout, engaging not only your cardiovascular system, but your legs and butt muscles too!!  We will be meeting in the parking lot immediately before the start of the bridge.  See you there!!  If you want to car pool, comment below and let us know.


I know ladies, it’s a hypocrisy….a contradiction set forth to confuse us and our children.  Not only are we constantly fighting the temptation of candy and sweets leading up to Hallowe’en, but the actual day itself entails you to go out and get as many sugary treats as possible!  Then we tell our kids that sugar is bad and will rot their teeth.

OK, so here’s the deal…

We all need constant motivation to do what’s right, day in and day out.  We need motivation to brush our teeth (cavities), we need motivation to work out and eat right (cellulite), we need motivation to work (bills), etc..  It’s human nature.  You know that sugar is bad for you, so let me highlight a harmful effect that may motivate us more than others:

If the obvious promise of a slimmer waistline doesn’t tame your need for sugar, maybe the desire for smooth, younger-looking skin will??  Yup, sugar attaches to proteins to form harmful new molecules called advanced glycation end products (or, appropriately, AGEs for short). The more sugar you eat, the more AGEs you develop, contributing to damage to the collagen and elastin in your skin…. a.k.a. WRINKLES!!!  (Not to mention that it contributes to type-2 diabetes, osteoporosis and cavities!!)

The wonderful thing is that we do not have to give up the sweetness of sugar in order to be healthy; we just need to replace it with better alternatives….fruit!



Your Bootcamp Coaches!

    I wish Halloween was not about candy 😦 After having kids, I am really starting to dislike it! I don’t want my little one’s eating that crap! I will have to work my magic tonight and “lose” some of their gains overnight!
