You have probably noticed on the blog and on Twitter that I joined Adventure Boot Camp at the beginning of June. Okay, you can’t really have missed it because I have been going on and on about it. I won a 2 camp membership and I was over the moon when I got the news.
Here is the ‘skinny’ on ABC… see what I did there?
ABC is a 4 week outdoor exercise programme programme that offers fitness instruction, nutritional counselling and motivational training packed with fun exercises designed to help you reach your fitness goals. It is designed for women of all ages, sizes and fitness levels. Here are a couple of pics I got off the web:
Along with the excitement of starting to exercise again, I was also very scared to be honest. I doubt that I have ever been as unfit as I was at the beginning of camp. On day 3 I was ready to give up. I was in so much pain. Every muscle in my body complained. But I put on my big girl panties and went back. I am so glad I did. After two weeks of training I could already see a difference to my stomach especially. That made me very happy as I am still carrying the remnant of a preggy belly around (insert ugly cry here). My husband also noticed. And I feel good. I forgot how good it feels to move and to breathe.
I love that we exercise outside in the fresh air and that every day is different. I am also part of an amazing group of women who have not once looked down on me when I’m standing there all red-faced and huffing and puffing. They are all super supportive. I love my group. And our trainer is phenomenal! She knows her stuff and she makes the session so much fun. But don’t try and cheat or she’ll make you run. Hey, Ang? ;)
Unfortunately the flu hit me hard and I missed almost 2 weeks of camp. But the next camp is starting on 14 July and I am amped.
I highly recommend ABC. Check out their website HERE to find a camp near you.
