For the remainder of the year my running goals are still on track (can’t resist the pun haha) and will take me through the end of the year. Strength training goals? Not so much. After finishing 90 days of Les Mills Pump I was going to start another 90 days of P90X. Like with running I need a plan to keep me focused and consistent.
That’s where Tina Reale comes in. That’s Tina on the far left and she was my roommate at the Runner’s World Half and Festival. Tina is the owner of Best Body Fitness and Best Body Bootcamp. Ironically, I contacted Tina in August to get more information about the bootcamp workouts and how well they would work with running 4 days/week. I decided to put off joining until January. After meeting Tina in person and talking about BBBC I couldn’t wait to join! Being her roommate was a sign right? It was going to be exactly what I needed to 1. try something new and different and 2. to get me through the end of the year with cross training and strength training. Sign me up!
One week into BBBC and I love it! The weekly plan focuses on the total body with strength training and intervals for cardio all worked into a program that includes 3-4 days of running. Reading your weekly plan you might be tempted to think “this is easy”. You would be wrong! It’s the supersets that challenge and kick your butt by the end of the workout. I still feel like standing on the the upside down Bosu is a battle, but I’m getting better and there’s a little less wobbling every time I step onto it.
The one thing that Tina said that convinced me to join and has stuck with me since is that the program is not about who loses the most or who works out most often. It’s about your “best body“. It’s about progress and improvement from where you are personally instead of progress compared to others. I’m looking forward to the challenge of 7 more weeks of bootcamp!
Week 1 BBBC goals:
- Drink 64 ounces of water daily. Success!
- Take vitamins daily. Success!
Week 2 BBBC goals:
- Do a daily plank.
- Stretch for 20 minutes.
Watch for another BBBC update.

Have you ever been to bootcamp? Have you ever tried supersets? Do you create your own strength or cross training plan? Do you prefer DVD workouts or a written plan?
