Congratulations Sandy - Bootcamper of the Program for November, 2011!

Congratulations to Sandy - from the EW location!

I have been a Body Buster member since August 2010. I initially joined for a month to see if I would even be able to do this. The first month was very challenging but with the encouragement of other members, who looked great and where long-time members I took the plunge and signed up for the full year. Sept 2011 rolled around and I did it again and signed up for another year!  Joining Body Buster is one of the best things I’ve done for myself in a very long time!

What I really enjoy most about the program is that there is someone there to encourage and motivate me, as I really need this.  Huy, our instructor ensures we are doing our exercises correctly so as not to have injuries and pushes us when he knows we are able to give more. I am really surprised by my own abilities, especially when you hear that little bit of encouragement to not give up, just hearing that makes you push ahead to give that extra and fight through to complete those “Last Ten”. 

I am very happy with my results.  I am much more toned and have seen a dramatic improvement in my overall strength, endurance and flexibility.

I have chosen to continue with Body Buster as I do work better with a schedule and having weekly scheduled classes’ keeps me committed, engaged and on track. I do my best to ensure I  schedule my make up classes otherwise I feel guilty and disappointed that I didn’t get in my 2 weekly workouts.  Becoming more active and physically fit has made a huge difference in my life. I am much more energetic, sleep better and am able to handle day to day stressful situations in a much more clear and constructive manner. Although I am hot, tired and sweaty at the end of each class, I still have that great feeling of accomplishment and that makes you want more. The different fitness levels of the individuals in our class is a benefit as well. It is great to have someone who is stronger than you in certain areas as this motivates me to continually push myself. It is also nice to encourage others that may not be at your level and to eventually see them succeed and celebrate their success with them.  I do appreciate the encouragement, support and motivation I get from my instructor Huy.  He is always available before or after class to discuss personal concerns with us or just give us some advice on how to build upon the progress we have seen so far. 

In terms of my overall health, I feel stronger both mentally and physically.  Not only do I see the results others have noticed as well. I have gained more confidence in myself, am more energetic and stronger than ever before.  I am proud of what I have accomplished over the last 15 months.  My health was starting to impact my ability to participate in some of those winter activities that I love, especially skiing. I can hardly wait to put on my skis to see the effect of these positive changes.

Since becoming a member of Body Buster I have been reminded of the importance of an active lifestyle for overall well-being and that you must take the time yourself to ensure this happens. I find I now have a more positive attitude to working out and getting into shape.  At times it is difficult to drag my butt to class especially when I am not feeling 100%, but by the end of class I am sure glad I did. The motivation and support from both my instructor and my class members have made the difference for me as I am not always able to do this on my own and would definitely not push myself to the level that I do. 

Thank you Body Buster for keeping me motivated and my body challenged with a variety of interesting and fun workouts.
