Testimonials from our bootcampers
Pinole Valley Bootcamp has changed my view of working out.  It’s not just for weight loss or getting in shape.  PVBC is good for the mind, body and soul.  It gets you outdoors for a breath of fresh air that will help you relieve some stress and clear your thoughts for the day.  I joined in March 2013 and it has completely transformed my body into ways I never thought possible and has given me strength that I didn’t know existed. I thought my prior workout routines of aerobic classes and gyms were keeping me in shape, but I was wrong.  It wasn’t until now that I know what being in shape really means.  You have to try it to believe it.   Pinole Valley Boot Campers are not only encouraging and great group of people, but they come in all shapes and sizes.  Sue and Sharon will work alongside you to make sure you are doing what works best for you so you never get discouraged.  You will never get bored or dread your next workout, you will look forward to it.  Mindy 

I was searching for a workout regimen that would offset my sedentary daily lifestyle of sitting in front of a computer, in an office.   Pinole Valley Boot Camp was the answer to my exercise dilemma! The classes 2-3 times a week are outdoors all year round. My body is in constant motion and I am keeping fit and losing inches. Sue and Sharon offer a challenging and creative workout each class. But best of all, the boot campers are always enjoyable and encouraging. Now I am hooked and can’t see myself ever quitting!    Marcy -


I am so glad I found Pinole Valley Bootcamp! Sharon and Sue, the masterminds behind Pinole Valley Bootcamp, have designed an awesome program that is challenging, effective, and FUN! Each session includes weight training and cardio exercises. Sue and Sharon plan everything out so you don't have to worry about anything and you get a full body workout each and every time. Plus, the great variety of exercises means you'll never get bored. In just one session I've lost three inches off of my waist, I can see that I'm getting toned, and I feel great. Running a mile non-stop used to be a challenge for me, now with Sue and Sharon motivating and pushing me, I'm sprinting up hills carrying weights and it feels great!
"Since joining Pinole Valley Bootcamp, I
 have looked forward to every single session. I never know what we'll be doing but I believe without a doubt that I could not get a better workout elsewhere. I have been pushed so much harder than I could ever even imagine pushing myself at the gym or on a run. I've always preferred to work out solo so I wasn't sure if this kind of class was for me. But I find that I work harder here than on my solo jogs or at the gym. There's something about working out with a supportive group of people that are all out there with you, dripping sweat, struggling through that last push up or lap, that gives me the strength to not give up or slow down. It doesn't matter if you can run a marathon or you can barely jog, Pinole Valley Boot Camp really is for everyone." -Casey-


"I have been attending Pinole Valley Boot Camp for over a year. This is the first time in my life that I have consistently worked out and loved it. The classes are outside at different places in Pinole and are always creative and exciting. There is much support and encouragement from fellow boot campers. I never thought I would be looking forward to exercising but I am. Most importantly, I have developed a sense if what I can accomplish that is so empowering. I have lost weight, become physically stronger, and feel so much better about myself. As a 60 year old teacher and cancer survivor, this is great stuff. Thank you Sue and Sharon." - Jane -
