Program

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 and Playa Del Rey, 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 full body circuit training, 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!

3. Connection

Though Bootcamp Connect you will connect with yourself, others and nature in a Holistic manner. Additionally, if you want to get truly healthy, you will need to address more than just your physical body. Your mind and soul also factor in and meditation is a simple practice to address these areas. All first-time, full-time campers will be given FREE access to my 3-Minute Meditations program and encouraged to participate in the 28-Day Challenge throughout their first camp.

What do I need to bring?

An exercise mat, small hand weights (3-8 lbs.), water bottle, running shoes.

What is the cost (investment in myself)?

Each four-week boot camp has a registration fee of $229. That’s twenty hours of instruction! It averages out to just $11.45 per hour. Where else can you get premiere or cutting edge fitness instruction for that incredible price? Personal trainers can typically charge $60 to $150 per hour for their services – this is a great opportunity to receive motivating fitness instruction by a certified personal trainer for just a fraction of the cost.
