"An athlete I am not. A good friend of my mine, bless her heart, actually laughed when she found out that I was teaching gym classes at my school. That’s what a disaster I am with all pursuits physical. But I do enjoy being active and I always feel better when I am making an effort to "work out". But really, that was part of the problem. As far as I was concerned, in my life BBC (before Booty Camp), exercise was just that, a monumental effort that just seemed like a lot of hard work. During any type of group exercise program, I always ended up getting frustrated, left behind, embarrassed and ultimately, I would quit. And because my self-image regarding anything that involved exercise was so poor, I definitely didn’t have the confidence, know-how or stamina that I needed to be successful on my own. Cue Booty Camp!"
Ironically I have many close girlfriends who are amazing athletes. They have always encouraged me to get in shape, offering to help, but at the same time, they know you can’t lead a horse to water if they ain’t thirsty! So when a friend told me about Booty Camp, asking me if I’d be interested in joining, all I heard was, "Hey, after a long day at home with your two young children, how would you like to go out in the cold and get yelled at by some random boot camp instructor, only to not have a hope of being able to keep up and feel bad about yourself?" Gee, let me think about that...so of course I said "no". But then I decided to look up the website and after reading through what Booty Camp was all about, I was actually kind of intrigued. Browsing through the success stories and seeing how Booty Camp had changed the lives of the women who had participated was inspiring, so I decided to give it a shot. And oh my word, am I ever glad that I did!
Driving with my friend to the first Monday night of Booty Camp was nerve wracking. I was sure that everyone else would be buff, chiseled goddesses and they would take one look at me and show me the door. I had the privilege of attending the Monday/Wednesday classes in Oakville at 8pm with the AMAZING Kat. After chatting with the group of ladies, getting a brief but warm introduction from Kat, I felt completely at ease, totally welcome, and for the first time ever, really excited to start an exercise program! Then we started the fitness test. I was ready to run out there door, only I wasn’t sure I would make it!. What the heck was I doing here?! I had never done a burpee before, unless you count the kind after drinking a soda, and I was quite sure they were designed as a method of torture. And push ups! Real, actual toes-on-the-ground push ups, I just didn’t do those...ever! But to my surprise, instead of feeling judged, I had ladies smiling at me, telling me I did a good job. Kat helped me with my technique as I went, encouraging all of the women throughout the night. I sweated, grunted and persevered through that first class, but I was so happy to finally find the program I had been looking for and just thought didn’t exist.
Don’t get me wrong, this transition was not easy for me. I was a mess Tuesday morning after the first class. Every part of my body was sore, including my booty! But as I whined and complained and felt sorry for myself, I came to a life changing realization; if my booty was sore after the first class, there had to actually be some muscle in there! So come Wednesday night, I was still sore, I was definitely sweaty, but I was there and surprisingly, happy to be there.
And with every class, I actual began to see and feel improvements. I began to look forward to Monday and Wednesday nights, and catching up with Kat and the ladies, curious as to what was on the Booty Camp menu for the evening. The first night that I actually did a "real" push up, I literally almost cried. I just never thought of myself as a girl who could do push ups. I found myself enjoying the challenges Kat set up for us, even when after our first 4 weeks she smiled and told us to bring weights to the remainder of the classes! Burpees and I are still not friends, but my technique and strength since that first class have improved so much that I can say that I really do enjoy the benefits and results that burpees bring. So I guess burpees and I can finally call a truce.
The feeling of becoming a better, stronger, more confident and more capable "me" is indescribable. I am forever grateful to Booty Camp and my fabulous instructor Kat. As cliche as it might sound, Booty Camp has changed my life. I don’t want to lose this momentum and I can’t wait to sign up for my next session.
From the least likely recruit to the Booty Camp lifer - if you are reading this and you are on the fence about whether Booty Camp is for you, it is, because Booty Camp is for anyone who has a desire to be a better version of themselves. See you there!
