Bootcamp's a rockin' workout

Bootcamp's a rockin' workout


Classes can be indoors or outdoors or both. On this day, we did plenty of field work -- running around the parking lot, over hurdles and hopping through rope ladders placed on the ground, upper-body work with a weighted bar, windmills, squats, lunges.

After, we went into the community center's gym for abdominals. I was a bit surprised to see the return of old-fashioned sit-ups, which were proven to be less than effective. They also carry greater risk of injury to the neck and back. But more suitable crunches followed. There were even some yoga postures like downward dog.

South Miami Bootcamp's turbo pace and constantly changing activities will have you sweating but trainer Ed Delatorre and his coaching staff don't treat this like the military. They -- and fellow classmates -- offer encouragement. Students said they all saw results and that they look forward to attending -- even at 7 a.m. Saturdays, Adam Lamnin said. ``You feel better about yourself.''


I wasn't 100 percent this particular morning, but when I am I'd love this class. You target various muscle groups and take advantage of the outdoors. There's a nostalgic kick to being on a open field -- like you're a kid again in P.E. class.



David Pearson, 75, likens Ed Delatorre's South Miami Bootcamp class to a little United Nations. ``It is by far the most integrated -- physically, socially, intellectually -- place of its type in Florida. The workout is terrific but it's almost like a spiritual lift when I leave here.''

Adam Lamnin, 44, once a Class of '82 Christopher Columbus High School jock, later a corporate executive with the body to prove it, says Bootcamp ''changed my life.'' When he started attending six months ago, he was 250 pounds and could not complete one lap around the field. ''It was brutal.'' Now, at 208, he (seemingly) effortlessly navigates through Delatorre and staff's myriad exercises, which can include running laps, squats with a weighted bar, calisthenics, sprints, crunches and an obstacle course.

Fitness Trends: What's hot in 2008


By Lori Corbin
GLENDALE (KABC) -- Rather than take a coffee break at work, some companies are asking employees to lift weights or take a walk. This is just one of many new trends in fitness.
"There's a big difference today between what happened just five years ago and what's going to be happening in the future," said Dr. Walt Thompson.

At a recent gathering of the American College of Sports Medicine, Exercise Physiologist Dr. Walt Thompson revealed the results of a worldwide survey in which 10,000 people were asked what was most important in fitness today.

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to touch base with everyone quickly.

I'd like to talk a little bit about EFFORT.

Effort is defined as:
1 : conscious exertion of power : hard work
2 : a serious attempt
3 : something produced by exertion or trying

How much effort are you putting out into reaching your goals?

Your fitness and health goals, specifically......

Well some of you make an effort to participate in an exercise program and give it 100%, to make sure you meet the physical demands.....
...but then you put a fraction of that effort into your nutritional needs.....

And then there are some you who put all of your effort into making sure you are "eating right" but then at the same time put almost no effort into your physical activity requirements.

To come full circle there is also the group that is using minimal effort on both ends.

Yet everyone is sharing something in common.

You All Want RESULTS

And then even though YOU know how much effort YOU are really putting in...

You start to second guess all of it.

But why?

YOU know you should not have had that extra scoop of ice cream.

YOU know you should have not stepped doing those squat just because you were breaking a sweat.

So then why are you second guessing yourself?

Look at how much EFFORT you are giving it, and then look at the definition of Effort....

Do you really think healthy eating and physical activity are hard work, when the end results is a better quality of life, not matter what your ultimate goals are?

The Answer is NO..

DO YOU WANT RESULTS? In Life and/or Fitness

Then how much REAL effort are you putting in? .....AGAIN,REAL EFFORT!

Only you know.

So Step Up to the Plate Starting NOW........No More Messing Around

Starting Right Now: 100% Effort + 100% Commitment are going to Equal 100% Success & Results

STOP TRYING and JUST DO IT..........
