Congratulations Ana – Bootcamper of the Program for March, 2012!

Congratulations to Ana – from the ES location!

I have been a Body Buster member since January of 2011.  The thing I love most about the program is being pushed to my limit.  When I think I’ve got nothing left, not one more rep, not one more burpee or lunge, I do have something left, one last exercise to empty the tank. I also love how everyone is doing the same exercises but we are all challenging ourselves in different ways.

I just renewed my membership for one more year.  I cannot imagine not being a member now.  I thrive on the energy in the gym with the group I work out with.  We all push and encourage each other. Even though workdays are long and I sometimes feel tired and drained on bootcamp nights, after completing the class I always feel so much better.  I have more energy and I’m always glad I made it to class.  Because of Body Buster I am healthier in mind and body.  I have always been active and have been a member of a few gyms. I have always used exercise, either running or cycling, as my stress reliever. Bootcamp keeps me sane, zaps my negative energy and replaces it with positive energy.  I know that physically I am stronger but more importantly, bootcamp helps me deal with stress.

I remember my very first Monday clearly.  We did tons of squats and lunges.  I didn’t walk that whole first week.  Basic movements were impossible.  Thanks to Kara and Body Buster I have made huge gains.  The workouts are tough, but just the right amount of tough.  She knows how to push us and still make us believe that we can do more.  I have made the most gains with the ball.  Ball classes for me are really hard.  I mean really, who runs with an exercise ball above their heads?  WE DO!  My core is stronger and my upper body is much stronger.  Push ups were my nemesis, now I just say, “Bring ‘em on!”

So, thanks Kara and the Body Buster Team for this honour.  I am looking forward to many more programs and many more classes.

Body Buster would like to congratulate you on your accomplishment!

Congratulations Sandy – Bootcamper of the Program for November, 2011!

Congratulations to Sandy – from the EW location!

I have been a Body Buster member since August 2010. I initially joined for a month to see if I would even be able to do this. The first month was very challenging but with the encouragement of other members, who looked great and where long-time members I took the plunge and signed up for the full year. Sept 2011 rolled around and I did it again and signed up for another year!  Joining Body Buster is one of the best things I’ve done for myself in a very long time!

What I really enjoy most about the program is that there is someone there to encourage and motivate me, as I really need this.  Huy, our instructor ensures we are doing our exercises correctly so as not to have injuries and pushes us when he knows we are able to give more. I am really surprised by my own abilities, especially when you hear that little bit of encouragement to not give up, just hearing that makes you push ahead to give that extra and fight through to complete those “Last Ten”.

I am very happy with my results.  I am much more toned and have seen a dramatic improvement in my overall strength, endurance and flexibility.

I have chosen to continue with Body Buster as I do work better with a schedule and having weekly scheduled classes’ keeps me committed, engaged and on track. I do my best to ensure I  schedule my make up classes otherwise I feel guilty and disappointed that I didn’t get in my 2 weekly workouts.  Becoming more active and physically fit has made a huge difference in my life. I am much more energetic, sleep better and am able to handle day to day stressful situations in a much more clear and constructive manner. Although I am hot, tired and sweaty at the end of each class, I still have that great feeling of accomplishment and that makes you want more. The different fitness levels of the individuals in our class is a benefit as well. It is great to have someone who is stronger than you in certain areas as this motivates me to continually push myself. It is also nice to encourage others that may not be at your level and to eventually see them succeed and celebrate their success with them.  I do appreciate the encouragement, support and motivation I get from my instructor Huy.  He is always available before or after class to discuss personal concerns with us or just give us some advice on how to build upon the progress we have seen so far.

In terms of my overall health, I feel stronger both mentally and physically.  Not only do I see the results others have noticed as well. I have gained more confidence in myself, am more energetic and stronger than ever before.  I am proud of what I have accomplished over the last 15 months.  My health was starting to impact my ability to participate in some of those winter activities that I love, especially skiing. I can hardly wait to put on my skis to see the effect of these positive changes.

Since becoming a member of Body Buster I have been reminded of the importance of an active lifestyle for overall well-being and that you must take the time yourself to ensure this happens. I find I now have a more positive attitude to working out and getting into shape.  At times it is difficult to drag my butt to class especially when I am not feeling 100%, but by the end of class I am sure glad I did. The motivation and support from both my instructor and my class members have made the difference for me as I am not always able to do this on my own and would definitely not push myself to the level that I do.

Thank you Body Buster for keeping me motivated and my body challenged with a variety of interesting and fun workouts.

Body Buster would like to congratulate you on your accomplishment!

Congratulations Effie – Bootcamper of the Program for October, 2011!

Congratulations to Effie – from the HP location!

I’ve been a member for six months. I originally thought I would join for one program only but I liked it so much I signed up for the rest of the summer and after the last outdoor program I signed up for the indoor program for the next six months.

There are three things I like most about the Body Buster Program. One is the great workout I get. Second are the other members who are fun, supportive and all working toward the same goals of a better fitness level and good health. Last and definitely not least our instructor Dani is amazing. She pushes us to work really hard but in a encouraging, engaging and fun way.

I have lost 12 pounds and approximately 15 inches.

I chose to continue with Body Buster because I want to maintain my fitness level. The program provides a convenient location,scheduled dates and times and a different workout every time.

I definitely feel better, leaner and stronger. At the same time I joined Body Buster I embarked on a vegan diet and I believe that both of those lifestyle choices helped me achieve the goals of losing weight, improving my overall health and challenging myself to do something that I wasn’t sure I could do. I’ve always been an active person but Body Buster took my exercise workouts to another level which I really am enjoying. It also provides a good stress reliever after a busy day at work.

I’ve gained more intense workouts than I’m used to which was what my exercise workout needed. I developed new goals for myself that I never really thought about before I joined the program. I’ve met good people who are encouraging and inspiring. I found an instructor who has a great, warm spirit but still doesn’t have a problem kicking our butts! I’m encouraged by other members who have been with Body Buster for a couple of years and look great and still feel sore after a Body Buster workout! I really appreciate the interest Dani takes in our goals and helping us by providing nutritional advice and information whether during class or through e-mail.

It’s been a great experience and one that I plan to continue for a long time. I encourage anyone thinking about increasing their fitness level and improving their health to join Body Buster.

Body Buster would like to congratulate you on your accomplishment!

Congratulations Vicenta – Bootcamper of the Program for July, 2011!

Congratulations to Vicenta – from the HP location!

I joined the program at the end of April 2011 and have been a Body Buster Fitness member for 3 months!

There are tons of things that I love about the Body Buster program. The thing I love MOST is being challenged!! I hate going to the gym and can’t motivate myself to work out at home so I know when I come to class that I will be working VERY hard and taking on many challenges.

In the last 3 months, I have lost almost 15 pounds and tons of inches.

I have chosen to continue with Body Buster because I have seen huge changes in my body (i.e. more toning) and love that I am getting faster and stronger. Also, I love the variety of each program and enjoy working out outdoors while meeting new people.

In spite of having asthma, I have seen great improvements in my cardiovascular abilities. I also have fewer food cravings and TONS of energy. I feel stronger and know that I can take on anything!

Before being a member of Body Buster, I didn’t really know what it was to push myself, but thanks to my peers and instructors, I know I CAN push myself every time and there are NO limitations.

I rave to everyone I know about working out with Body Buster. The instructors definitely kick butt and keep me on my toes!!! I love how much fun I have (except when doing the Dani famous burpee specials * ha ha*) and love feeling like a million dollars!!

The experience has been challenging, but worthwhile with great mental and physical results. My body and mind crave the challenge and I know that it’s all up to ME and that I can push through it each time!!! Thanks to the great group at HP and Dani for challenging me to be the best I can be!

Body Buster would like to congratulate you on your accomplishment!

Congratulations Margaret – Bootcamper of the Program for January, 2011!

Margaret – well done!
You are our Bootcamper of the Program for January, 2011!

I cannot believe that almost two years have gone by since joining Body Buster. My first class was in April of 2009. My girlfriend and I decided we wanted to get into shape for the summer and had heard fantastic things about boot camp. I thought it was worth a shot because I dreaded going to the gym. We did an internet search and chose Body Buster because it was close to home. I’ve been hooked ever since.

There is so much that I love about the Body Buster Program. I have to start off with our fantastic instructor Kara. She keeps all of us motivated and encourages us to do our personal best in a safe, friendly environment. The classes she plans are engaging and fun. It is always a complete workout and I leave feeling that I have accomplished something. I also enjoy sharing the experience with my classmates. Seeing all the friendly faces each week and sharing the experience with them inspires me to try my best. It is nice to have others around to share a laugh with when you are in pain and who keep you motivated to push through it.
I’ve lost 13 pounds since joining Body Buster and have gone down three jean sizes. However, I don’t focus on what I’ve lost. I am most proud of the endurance and muscle strength that I am gaining!!

Body Buster has become a part of my lifestyle. I look forward to my Tuesday/Thursday workouts and the thought of not continuing doesn’t cross my mind.
My overall health has improved and it has rippled into all aspects of my life. Not only do I see the results but I feel much better about myself. I’m stronger, happier and more energetic!!!

This is going to sound cliché but I feel that I have gained a new me. Before Body Buster I despised running and wasn’t much for working out. I still remember struggling to complete the one kilometer run my first class (it wasn’t really a run but more of a walk/jog combination). I thought that I never would be able to run the full kilometer and envied the classmates that could. But with the motivation of my instructor and the inspiration of my classmates I finally did complete the run and I continue to improve. Now I enjoy running and sometimes catch myself doing it outside of class. But most importantly I have gained confidence in myself. I am proud of what I have achieved and happy that I am becoming a healthier person because of it.
