For the last 4 weeks I have had the opportunity to run another Urban Boot Camp. Urban Boot Camp (UBC) is held outdoors from 0430-0530, Monday thru Friday. We are outside unless rain or lightning becomes a safety issue. Programming is such that all fitness levels will be satisfied with the intensity. Each week the intensity escalates. The recruits have individual goals in regards to fitness and nutrition. Their goals are tracked and they receive feedback on a regular basis. By doing this not only do they learn about fitness but they often learn things about themselves. Things like internal strength and fortitude and how to help another recruit find their inner power.
Truthfully everything I have written in this blog is about me. The real reason I am writing it is to let you know how it affects me, their trainer. The deep felt reward I feel when I see them power through obstacles (both mental and physical) is amazing! To see them progress is 'just the best'!
My schedule is pretty full and adding an early morning workout can be a challenge. It's typical for my alarm to buzz at 0315. I have to be onsite before everyone else in order to set up for the workout. After all, what would it look like if I came rolling in and everyone was waiting on me! After the session I buzz onto my next class or personal training client. The day goes on...and it's a long day but I LOVE IT!
Helping my recruits reach their goals, learn about fitness and themselves is an amazing feeling for me. I am honored to have been apart of it! Most importantly I hope each one of 'my people' continue their journey!
In closing I say thank you Urban Boot Camp recruits! HOOAH!
