Lillie S. lost 19 lbs in 12 weeks, a total of 12.3% of her body weight, to earn the money pot and the title of BIGGEST LOSER in 2015.

Not far behind, was Jackie M.J. with a total of 18.2 lbs lost.

Two more shout outs to Marcia D. and Lissette M. for completing their 12-week journey and losing under 11 lbs and 15 lbs respectively.  YAY!!

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU LADIES!!!  As I mentioned before, I’ve witnessed a lot of sacrifice these past few weeks and you hard work has paid off!!!  Hats off to you!

TIPS FOR HOLIDAY EATING…

December 23, 2015

Ladies,

It’s unavoidable – work luncheons, boxes of chocolate everywhere you turn, family parties, traveling…. the temptation of eating is EVERYWHERE in December!

IN THE UNITED STATES, HALF OF ALL ANNUAL WEIGHT GAIN OCCURS DURING THE HOLIDAY PERIOD.

Ok, so let’s establish that few people are watching their waistlines between now and January 1st.  The least I can offer you to help the excess weight gain is this:

If you’re going to eat, CONTROL THE CARBS!
CARBOHYDRATES, although necessary, are what contribute to most of the weight gain, so eat them strategically over the the holidays.  Don’t deprive yourself, just take in smaller portions.

Examples…

  1.  Load up on meat/chicken/fish and vegetables – and less rice or potato.
    Unknown1
  2. Dessert – you see a variety of sweets that you like?  Take a bite size serving of each.  All you need is a taste right??   I mean think about it…  why waste your calories on something that has absolutely no nutritional value?
    Unknown1
  3. Drink of choice – WATER.  Would you rather eat the calories or drink them?  Plus, what better way to wash everything down and stay refreshed.
    Unknown1
  4. Don’t eat until you feel sick – GEEZ!  Eating is for energy! Remind yourself that eating is about fuel, it’s about providing our bodies with the nutrients and energy needed to be productive as we move and think.  We don’t need much!  Don’t overfill the tank to the point where you’re sluggish and uncomfortable.

    DON’T BE THIS GUY!

CONGRATULATIONS TO CINDY MELO!!
You deserve the title of “Student of the Month” through your hard work and dedication!

Age: 28

Profession:
Business Analyst at FPL

How did you hear about us?

I started training about 8-9 years ago, can’t remember when exactly. I was working at the insurance agency upstairs next to Bootcamp. I would see the poster advertising it every time I had to go to get the mail.

Fitness Background:
Prior to Bootcamp I was never into sports. I enjoyed going to salsa classes for many years but stopped.

Favorite exercise/workout: Arnold press and “crazy ropes”

Least favorite exercise/workout: pull ups and burpees

Changes I’ve noticed:
Bootcamp has transformed my lifestyle and my view on fitness forever. I’m trying new things that I would have never dreamt of doing such as half marathons, 5ks, swimming when I don’t even know how to, biking, etc. I can’t go a day without working out. The best part is that I’ve met great people along the way. The coaching staff and all of the wonderful bootcamp ladies motivate and help me reach my goals. This will be my forever 2nd home.

It’s looking…

December 4, 2015

…like it’s going to be a wet one!  Forecasts are calling for rain all weekend so let’s not take a chance – tomorrow’s SOLE SISTERS workout has been moved to FIU.  My legs were pain free for the first time today since our last stairs & ramp workout so I suppose it’s time for round #2!

Ladies, meet us at our usual spot tomorrow morning at 7 AM for another sweaty and rewarding workout!  Hope to see you all there!
