FIFTEEN DEEP IN THE OUTHOUSE LINE


Recent grads Jason and Teresa made it look like a walk in the park. Nice work kids.

Here's what Teresa had to say about her first section with the big group. I would like to say that at first I thought I wasn\'t going to like Bootcamp Fitness as much as the (XYZ GYM) but I have quickley changed my mind! My body has responded so much better to your class. I used to get terrible shin splints at the (XYZ GYM) from all the jumping which I don\'t get at your classes. Also, yours seems much more structured and focused on really improving my body than the (XYZ GYM). Thank you

For Time:

5 Rounds of the Following
7 Reps Shoulder Press
7 Reps Push Press
7 Reps Push Jerk
1 mile run

Loading: males 85lbs / females 60lbs.
