What is Bootcamp Connect?
Bootcamp Connect (formerly known as Westside Adventure Boot Camp) is a four-week outdoor program of fitness instruction, nutritional counseling and motivational training in Santa Monica, CA.
This program has been specifically designed with the 35+ crowd in mind. It is the bootcamp workout for anyone who has ever wanted to try one but been afraid to do so. I call it the Anti-Bootcamp Bootcamp. You’ll work hard and see results but in a nurturing, supportive and encouraging environment. We create camaraderie not competition. There are no whistles, no barking orders, no drill sergeant, no judgement.
In BC you will CONNECT to…Body, Mind, Soul, Breath, Nature and Community.
BC utilizes the revolutionary Mindful Fitness Flow system, a holistic integration of strength training, core conditioning, mobilization, yoga, and meditation. Classes are kept small…maximum 10 people, so they have a group personal training feel.
Whether you are a beginner, need to lose 10+ pounds, or are just tired of the same routine, come try this whole new approach to exercise where we lift, stretch, condition and play our way fit!
