My husband and I attended the USMC Birthday Ball this past weekend. The USMC Ball is always a special event. Women spend weeks preparing, getting a special dress, shoes, jewelry, their hair done, make-up and the men spend extra care on preparing their uniforms. Most of my clients who are Marine Corps spouses name the USMC Ball as an event they're training to lose weight for and look fit in their ball gown.

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.
I've told my friends and clients for years that if you want to maximize your work-out you should use interval training. We no longer hold on to the belief that you should work-out at a low intensity to burn fat. The bottom line is burning calories. The best way to do this is to incorporate interval training in your workouts. Interval training is when you work hard for a short amount of time (i.e. 1-2 minutes) and then work at a slightly slower pace to recover (i.e. 2-4 minutes).
