What should I expect at Sarah's Boot Camp?
Each day at camp will be a fun and unique challenge! You will work individually, in partners, and in teams to accomplish the daily routine. Each session will go through a warm-up, progressive exercises and drills, and a proper cool-down including stretching. You will be cued on proper form and technique throughout the entire session to ensure safety and proper results. Most importantly, you will be required to smile, chill out, and have a positive attitude!
What to bring to boot camp each day?
Besides a fun attitude and no egos, you will be required to bring a set of dumbbells (5, 8 or 10lbs), a large towel, and a full water bottle. All other equipment needed to perform drills and exercises will be provided. You will also be required to wear breathable, athletic attire and a quality pair of cross-training gym shoes. All loose fitting shorts should be accompanied by 'spandex shorts' or come equipped with a fitted liner. T-shirts and tank tops are recommended for all as well. Sunglasses and/or a hat or visor aren't a bad idea either!
When and where will we meet?
Clearwater: Camp will be held in Downtown Clearwater where we will begin promptly at 6:30pm each Tuesday and Thursday evening as well as Saturday mornings at 8am. Each individual session lasts for exactly 60 minutes.
Brandon/Valrico: Camp will be held in the parking lot of Bay Life Church (1017 Kingsway Rd - Brandon, FL) each Monday and Friday mornings at 5:30am. Each individual class lasts for exactly 60 minutes.
*For all campers, you are encouraged to leave all personal belongings hidden in your vehicle (trunk) and we'll collect keys in one central spot, (so that you don't have to worry about lugging them around)! If we will be taking a field trip to a different location on any given day, you will be given clear directions and advance warning.
