Boot Camp Gets New Jersey Women in Shape

MONTCLAIR, NJ (WCBS 880) – Do you want to get in shape and get your butt kicked at the same time? It’s all the rage in New Jersey, as WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reports.

Call it a fitness revolution – an army of women, 60-80 strong, running, jumping, lifting, lunging, and sweating at 5:30 in the morning at Brookdale Park in Montclair.

“I’m hooked!” says participant Pam, “All the energy from all the other women and the way I look and feel.”

Mike Smith founded Adventure Boot Camp a few years ago after noting its popularity in California.

“Over the last two years, and this year especially, is the first year I’ve noticed a real big explosion,” says Mike.

Coach Laura Powell says women can feel lost in a gym. She leads her troops in the battle of the bulge.

“A lot of them have busy lives with families and, you know, their kids have sports in the afternoon. So, the morning works well. It’s the only time for them,” says Laura.

    This camp definitely prides it’s service and seems great. Your fitness and health is a great investment, and it’s not always about the cheapest, but most effective value. Way better and more fun than traditional personal training and is a MUCH better value. I took a boot camp in NYC that was cheaper, and than one that was a little bit more…and I must say, you often times get what you pay for when you decide solely based on price

      Michelle, I agree…and I just happened to luck out with good, fun training at a great reasonable price.

    For those that are in Central Jersey check out Ryan is great, it’s cheaper and men can also join. I’m already noticing results.
