Boot Camp Q & A

Start With The Inside is holding Boot Camp workouts 2X a week, starting Thursday, May 23rd:
* Thursday evening at 6:30 pm at Tribble Mill Park in Lawrenceville [drive to playground area and keep going until you reach the end of the parking lot]
* Saturday morning at 8:00 am at Alexander Park in Lawrenceville [meet by restrooms]

Why should I do a Boot Camp workout? 
People like our Boot Camp workouts because they are different. We don't scream at you. We don't make you do unsafe exercises. Yes, those trainers are great to look at, they are fun to watch on tv, but it's not about the trainer, it's about you. What will motivate you to workout? What will be something fun that you can do and get a good workout at the same time?

What do you do in a Boot Camp workout? 
We will do different exercises in each workout. We will work with balls in a group, we will work on cardio, we will work on strength training using your own body weight, we will work on our core and posture. You will get a good workout. You will stretch. You will laugh. You may cry, but it won't be for long. You will leave feeling inspired and energized.

What should I wear/bring? 
Wear comfortable clothing. It will be warm in Atlanta, so best option is shorts and t-shirt, light jacket if cool, but you'll probably end up taking it off anyway! Wear good shoes and good socks. Bring a towel and water for during and after workout.

Is it just for women? 
No, men can come. We do not discriminate or intimidate. They will be sorely impressed by the women nevertheless. Kids can come as well, as long as they are over 12, with parent and parent signs a release.

How much does it cost? 
$50.00 for the 6-week series, 2X a week, starting Thursday, May 23rd through Saturday, June 29th. If you cannot commit to all of those dates, you can pay $5.00 per class and come to the ones you can make.

How can I sign up?

Also visit our event page on Facebook. Use this event page to share with your friends and family and invite them to come as well.

Does it take a village to get a person healthy?

Sometimes. Or maybe just a push in the right direction. When it comes to weight loss and living healthy, accountability and motivation are very important. People like to meet set goals and they like to be inspired along the way. It is scary to take the steps to lose weight by yourself. Even with the help of an expert doctor or supportive family and friends, it is still up to you to make the ultimate changes.

In Gwinnett’s Losing It!, that village is there to help you make those changes. In this 12-week healthy weight loss program, we guide a group through the changes necessary for healthy, permanent weight loss. No pills or shakes. No crazy workouts. Just common sense education on nutrition and workouts. And getting your head into it. Start With The Inside focuses on making the emotional changes necessary for weight loss. I went through these changes in my own transformation 12 years ago and now helps others make their health transformation. 
“The most exciting part of a transformation is seeing the real person emerge from an unhealthy body. People lose who they really are or hide behind big clothes to cover themselves. When they make real change, it shows and not just in their clothes, but in every aspect of their lives.”
In this 12-week program, participants meet with a trainer once a month on nutrition and workouts, attend weekly teleconference calls and weigh-ins, attend monthly group events and workshops, and learn the essentials to living a healthy life. It’s not about getting to a certain size, but more about getting off medication, getting a healthy body and making those changes that hold a person back from a healthy life. Participants learn about proper body fat percentages, how to make healthy meals and how to exercise at any level. The group celebrates the end of the 12 week program with a 5K walk/run.

This will be the seventh season of Gwinnett’s Losing It! since 2011 and Start With The Inside is calling on local companies in Gwinnett who want to help their employees get healthy. Companies can sponsor employees in the 12-week program. The next Gwinnett’s Losing It! will begin April 8, 2013, and goes through the end of June. Registration opens on March 15, 2013. Cost is $249.00 for the 12-week program.
