"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-
Casey's update 02/2013:
Pinole Valley Bootcamp is a great fitness program. I love that each class is a new and unique experience. I’ve been coming since October 2010 and cannot imagine going back into a gym. I quickly she 40lbs and I continue to get stronger and feel great. I love being challenged and pushed. Sue and Sharon are great at doing both!
"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 -
"Pinole Valley Boot Camp is amazing! After just a few sessions, I saw a positive difference in my body, mind, and eating habits! Each workout is challenging and different with lots of personal attention no matter what your fitness level. Plus, I'd rather work out in the fresh air than a stuffy gym any day!" - Sue R.
"I have really enjoyed boot camp. I know that sounds funny but it has given me a lot of benefits, even just attending once a week. First it made me put myself first for a change, Its given me more energy, its gets me pumped up and something to look forward to at the end of the week. It has helped me look at my eating habits. It lets me know that I am not alone in this battle to get fit and healthy , and it has given me comradeship. It has also helped contribute to me loosing 18lbs in these last 6 weeks. I am hoping to come back after the next 2 weeks. " -Wendy.
"Thanks for a great 6 weeks. I was looking for something to kick-start my regular workout and Pinole Valley Bootcamp did the trick. I regularly work out in the morning and I wanted something to supplement my regular routinge. In the 6 weeks with Pinole Valley Bootcamp I lost 4lbs and noticed an increase in my endurance. The workouts were challenging and different every time. I love working out outside. We had days of blistering heat, wind, rain and sun and we worked out in all of it. Our bodies never go used to the routine!
I reconnected with some old friends and met some new ones too. The cameraderie is great, not matter what your workout level is you are challenged to push yourself a little harder and the group is behind you all the way.I'll be back!" - Mary-
