"How many times do you wake up, look in the mirror, frustrated by the way you look, suffocating from your clothes being too tight, start the day off with the “I’m going to eat better attitude”, and at the end of the day you lay in bed going over your stressful day and all the “stuff” you put in your mouth for comfort? Just to wake up the next morning to repeat the same cycle over and over.
Ever been there?
And more than once I might add. You want to lose enough weight so that you can at least fit back into your clothes that are stuffed way in the back of your closet, feel better about yourself and self-esteem, and improve your health. Wanting and doing are two different things. You just don’t have the time, or the energy, or there is so much going on right now in your life. Maybe…tomorrow. Do these words sound familiar? They’ve come out of my mouth justifying my situation.
"My name is Penny Jackson, 44 years old, and I want to encourage you to stop wanting and start doing!
First, think back when you really wanted something and went after it. My guess is it wasn’t always easy and it took time, but your determination and focus kept you going until you attained it. Let’s face it ladies. We as women find time in our days to do whatever is important that we want to do. College Station Boot Camp is from 5:30 – 6:30 A.M. Yes, that a.m. means early in the morning. But women of all ages gather together, work out, encourage each other, push each other, and applaud each other. And is it hard? Yes. Does it take time? Sure it does. But we are finished and back home before, before the "wake up, look in the mirror, frustrated by the way you look" – scenario starts all over for you again.
On top of getting to wake up and finish your workout early, how about the added bonus of REALLY learning about nutrition? How your body is suppose to use food, besides storing it from the waist down! I am not knocking how anyone is eating or what “plan” you are on, because I have already been there, done that. But this is absolutely the first time that eating makes sense. Another added bonus is when you eat like you are taught along with the exercise, not only will you feel better, look better and begin to see results, you won’t have those “cravings” to clean out the pantry. It’s amazing!
"So what are you waiting for! Don’t “want” another day. Start “doing” by filling out the registration and getting it turned in to College Station Boot Camp. Then go ahead and set that alarm and be prepared to meet other women who didn’t know 5:30 existed except at dinner time.
You’ll be encouraged and supported as you finish one day at a time, and before you know it the four weeks are over, and you’ll be wondering how you ever managed without boot camp and the nutrition knowledge before. I look forward to seeing you soon!
Just a quick note to let you know how totally impressed I am with your boot camp. I'm a first timer, older and more out of shape than most of the others in the class, and really didn't know what I was getting in to when I signed up ---- just that something had to change and maybe this was a way to kind of jump start some sort of health / exercise plan.
I was shocked when I "bonked" the first day and left thinking maybe this was a mistake and I wasn't in good enough shape to make it through the program. However, day two, with the help of a little protein proved to be much better and I'm already thinking of signing up for the next session.
So this is just a little thumbs up to let you know how much I am enjoying it, how much better I already feel (both physically and emotionally), how happy I am with your approach to exercise and nutrition and how much I feel like I have already learned. I think I've stumbled on to something wonderful and look forward to learning and doing much more. The preliminary material, nutrition logbook and daily emails are great --- you've just really got a top notch program in place.
Many thanks for all you are doing for us and for the hope you have already instilled,
This fitness and weight loss program is honestly the best gift I have given myself. It is motivating, stimulating and challenging…everything my old routine lacked. It jumpstarts my day and I have met a wonderful group of women from all walks of life. I receive dedicated personal instruction – I couldn’t ask for anything more in an exercise program. You need to do this for yourself.
I am 39 years old and was beginning to accept that when we get older, our bodies just get fatter. I had been working out for about two years with little results. Then I saw your ad for the Adventure Boot Camp, so I decided to give it a try. It was one of the toughest workouts I had ever done in my life, but you gave each one of us the confidence that we could do the workouts no matter what our fitness level was.
With a previous back injury, I thought I would never be able to keep up. Well I did and even my husband noticed I was not complaining of my back hurting anymore. Overall, I feel so much better about myself. I am now 6 pounds lighter and 5% less bodyfat just as your ad stated. Thank you for making me feel so good.
See you at the next camp!
I have somewhat of an unusual testimonial I thought I'd share with you. On Wednesday after our hike I had a dentist appointment to have a crown work up on a tooth that broke. My dentist is here locally and her name is Caroline Dang.....she's a great dentist. She was drilling away on my tooth when the anesthetic started to wear off.....I motioned her, and she stopped and gave me another shot and continued. She still wasn't finished when I felt the pain coming back again.....she had to stop again and give me yet a third shot to numb me so she could finish. She couldn't understand why the medication was going through me so quickly because I had to have a crown once before and that didn't happen. I mentioned that I had just gone on a "climb up Mt. Everest" that morning and she said that was it.....my metabolism was running so high that the medication was running through my body faster than normal. She was impressed.....so was I!
I was completely bored with exercising. I have exercised my whole life and needed a change. It's great to be excited about my workout program again. I'm beginning by 3rd camp soon!

The Adventure Boot Camp is simply the best! I particularly like the variety of activities and the sense of fun that's built into the program. I really felt like I was getting the maximum benefit out of the program. I highly recommend the program to anyone wanting to improve their fitness and overall health.
I have to admit I was a little skeptical about something entitled "Boot Camp". I envisioned a lot of yelling and not the most nurturing environment. However, since day one of camp, I have been nothing but thrilled to wake up and hang out with my newly acquainted friends. After two camps, I have learned so many new exercises that have stirred muscles I didn't know I had! The biggest change for me has occurred in my arms, hips and abs. I feel so much leaner and firm. I'm into a size 4 and my energy level has seen a significant boost. So, whether it's interval training with weights or yoga and Pilates, I look forward to every morning's new adventure.
Wow! What can I say about Boot Camp. I can say so much I don't know where to begin. I am 32 years old and have tried many different things to try and get myself into shape. Including working out with a personal trainer that cost me ALOT of money and just ended up hurting my knees. When I thought about doing Boot Camp the idea of getting up to workout at 5:30 in the morning freaked me out a little. Well, I am currently involved in my second camp. After the first 4 week camp I noticed a difference in my body composition that I never had prior. I have never really had a weight problem, yet was never really toned either. My legs and butt were on the flabby side, and as I get older I noticed it getting worse. Right now I feel so good in my clothes - I can't believe it. People have noticed a change in my body. My hips had started getting little fat pockets on the sides and those are GONE! I am amazed at the results of the training that the Adventure Boot Camp gives us. Getting up and working out at 5:30 has been easy to adjust to and believe it or not, I have lots of energy throughout the day. I Love Camp and the Adventure Boot Camp concept is awesome. I love camp and I love what is happening to my body as a result of it!
Thank you for the dedication to all of us! You are awesome!
In February of this year, I started my first boot camp with the Adventure Boot Camp, I must say I was a bit unsure of my strength and abilities. Could I even keep up? Boot Camp? I've been there before! In 1988 I left the United States Marine Corps after serving eight years and being in the best shape of my life. Now, I'm a 47 year old female, 50 pounds overweight and in the worst shape of my life. I allowed allowed the corporate demons to suck up my soul for the past 12 years. I have tried every diet in the book from Weight Watchers, Fit For Life, drugs and personal training - unsuccessfully. Now it was time for a rebirth and I knew boot camp would do it. But could I handle it 22 years later when waking up at 0430 is a challenge in itself . Well the Adventure Boot Camp makes sure everyone at camp finds their personal success. As this was accomplished so was a gradual physical, emotional transformation. Now while attending my third boot camp, I am stronger, healthier, with noticeable increased energy levels and have dropped one dress size. I have achieved my personal goals and much more . My weight, I no longer worry about because I feel too good to be preoccupied with my negative thoughts. This is truly a life changing experience and if you're ready for the commitment, join the journey, come aboard. If not, stay home and sleep your way through life! I did it for 12 years. :-) Sempre Fi ! !
I have been away from a fitness lifestyle for years. I replaced fitness for watching my 'bottom lines' grow. I saw the Adventure Boot Camp's ad and was compelled to act for two reasons: #1: it didn't sound like a sissy camp. #2: I had no time management rationalizations to use against exercising locally from 5:30-6:30am, a time slot previously reserved for snoring. What is the result? I have more energy and I am proud of myself for getting something started. I did not choose this program because of the staff's extensive credentials. Now that I have done this for two weeks, I know that it is their expertise at working different muscle groups every day & incorporating different exercises that has made the workout difficult, and yet possible for me. The variety keeps it fresh and makes it a total body workout. I would highly recommend this program for anyone seeking to rekindle their love for a fitness lifestyle.
I arrived at boot camp overweight and out of shape - a true couch potato who loved food and hated exercise. But, I knew it was time for a change and the Adventure boot camp sounded like just the cure. What I was really looking for was something to jump start me into better fitness and eating habits. What could be better than four weeks of intense fitness training with other women under the guidance of an experienced trainer? And the classes were great! The variety of activities and pace of the class made the hour fly by each day. Don't get me wrong, it was a lot of hard work. the Adventure Boot Camp pushed me harder than I would ever push myself working out alone. But they also allowed for the individual abilities of each participant. It didn't matter that I was the slowest or the weakest. What matters is that I worked at and improved at everything. And the results are impressive. During the four weeks, I lost eight pounds. I lost two inches each around my chest, waist, and hips. I also lost over one inch on each arm and leg. I improved my one mile run time by 10%. Plus, I have more energy than ever. Best of all, it has given me just the boost I was looking to attain. I'm now eating better, sleeping better, and exercising regularly. I have the hope and belief that I can continue my new fitness habits and my journey to a leaner and healthier me. And I'm looking forward to returning to future boot camps to challenge myself again.
