Fitness Boot Camp...Day 1

Week 1 Update...
I made it through the first week! Yeah! I am hooked on this boot camp. I actually want to sign up for an additional four weeks after the first round. It is a great way to get motivated and have support from the trainer, Kimae Dolan, (who is fabulous!) and the other 20 plus women in the camp. I will write a final update after the camp is finished.

Day 1...
This morning marked my first day of a 4-week fitness boot camp and I wanted to share my experience with brides that may need some inspiration getting in shape before their wedding day. The program is through Seattle Weight Loss Boot Camp and is held at Greenlake on the lawn, rain or shine. This morning it was rain and mud! I have to say though that working out in those conditions is invigorating. You learn to ruff it and get your heart rate going. I feel energized and ready to make a positive change in my health.

My good friend Anne Griffith who is getting married this July inspired me to join with her. Anne is a fitness guru in her own right as a nutritionist and fitness coach. She offers her own version of a bridal boot camp but it is one-on-one with personalized meal plans and fitness training. Check out details at Northwest Influence & her blog.

I will send an update on Monday to let you all know if I survived my first week! At the end of the program I hope to have a success story to share.

I welcome anyone who would like to leave a comment about their own fitness success stories!
