What Brentwood Boot Campers are saying about Niki G’s Boot Camp

I have tried the gym, fad diets, and my own healthy lifestyle attempts, but I lack the motivation and consistency of effort to achieve my goal. It was time to try something new, and I needed someone to push, challenge, and motivate me, and that is why I joined Niki G’s bootcamp.  She is great about motivating, and challenging us. I have toned up, and I generally feel healthier and have tons more energy.  The bootcamp is very challenging and you are really pushed to extend yourself.  But at the end of the session you know that you have had a great workout.

I couldn’t have asked for a better workout experience.  I signed up for boot camp for the accountability, because when things are busy with work and in life my workout routine is the first thing to go.  I also thought it would be a good way to get ready for Summer.  Niki is great, because she makes the workouts challenging, but fun at the same time. The workouts are different each day and I started to see results I was only planning on taking one month, but I am  definitely going to do it again. A.F Brentwood, TN

The sun glowing through the trees, the sound of birds chirping and baseball bats cracking, the smell of fresh cut grass… what could be better than Boot Camp in the sun shine and fresh air in Brentwood???

I can’t tell you how excited I am to be back in my hometown of Brentwood, TN! Every time, I drive through my neighborhood and around town I feel like I am on movie set. It’s SO beautiful here. So, when I began developing my Fitness Boot Camps here in town, it was a “no-brainer” to base them at the beautiful parks we are so fortunate to have!

Growing up,  I loved visiting parks with my family and I used to run and walk at them in-between in-home clients to get ready for swimsuit pageants or modeling gigs. Now, I still enjoying running at Brentwood Parks and taking my children there to play on the playground. It’s great to be able to enjoy I enjoy them while working too… if that’s what you call it!

The parks are the perfect setting for exercise! Not only are my clients getting sunlight and fresh air, they have a huge setting for running, lunging, weight training, fat burning and even for doing Yoga. One Saturday morning, we were just finishing our workouts and doing abs on mats when it started to lightly rain. Everyone welcomed the light mist as it felt GREAT after a challenging workout. I gave them the option of heading into the pavilion to finish our ab routine, but they all wanted to stay right there on the open basketball court!

So, next time you need a good workout get outdoors for you own personal boot camp, go for a walk or run, or join one of my groups for extra motivation. You will be so energized for you workout, you might even look forward to your next!

 

Free Boot Camp and April Awards 5/2/09- Brentwood, TN


This morning, on a wet and rainy Saturday, 15 dedicated “Boot Campers” showed up for a fast and fun 30 minute workout at Owl Creek. Several had never been to one of my camps, but they all hung in the with best of them the entire 30 minutes!

We started out with a simple warm up then hit the path for Niki G’s ‘Hot Potato Jog and Sprint’, where we pass 2 balls down the line and the last one sprints to the front with ball. Next we grabbed some mats and weights out of my ‘mom-mobile’ and headed over to the pavillon for a non-stop full body workout. Then just when they thought it might be over, we blasted our hips, thighs and butt with some floor exercise and finally finished off with some ab exercises and a nice stretch.

After our workout, we all relaxed and had a light breakfast and I gave awards to some of our April Boot Campers…..

TOP: Winner of the April “Best Boot Camp Blooper Award (Fearless Female Award) for her graceful wipeout during sprints. At least it was in the grass and she didn’t hurt herself!
