Sometimes it takes that extra PUSH! (success story of a 44 year old mom)

This is a guest post by a current client: My name is Cheryl and I’m 44 years old. I’ve been working out at New Port Richey Bootcamps for a little over a year now. I’m a typical on again, off again bootcamper, hitting goals when I need to and slacking off when I don’t. Though I want to give up at times, there has never been a time throughout the past year where Derek hasn’t called me to yell at[…]

It’s summer and I’m sure you’ve at least had to put on the dreaded bikini or bathing suit so far this year, or you’ve remained more covered up that a US soldier in the deserts of Afghanistan! I wrote a blog the other day “Burn Fat for 3 Days (in only 20 minutes)” explaining the importance of not including the treadmill in your weight loss efforts and how you could be wasting your time! Instead new research continuously shows that full body,[…]

Burn Fat for 3 Days (in under 20 minutes)

When it comes to fat loss, slow and steady loses  the race. “According to American research published in the journal ‘Obesity,’  men and women who did 300 hours of cardio over the course of a year lost an  average of only 5 pounds,” Craig Ballantyne, owner of,  said. “That’s 60 hours of cardio to lose one pound!” More intense  training — in shorter bursts — burns calories more quickly and burns more fat  overall.

Every Bit of Progress Counts

Only a tiny loss this week.  I know some people think that a few inches is quite significant, but it’s not quite what I need to lose per week so I’m a little behind at the moment.  Hopefully if I do a few extra high intensity cardio sessions it might be better next week. This week has been a long one.  Training has been hard work. I am on low carbs, I am pretty tired at the moment, so it[…]
