Lisa’s Story

“You got this. Lisa, you can do it!” These two simple phrases are constantly with me. I hear them in my head when exercising at home and I hear them out loud while at camp. They are just one of many driving forces that have pushed me to my greatest fitness achievements which will be with me forever. The voice I hear is SoCal Fitness Boot Camp trainer, Karen Pietsch, who has been my primary fitness trainer for the past five years. Karen is an amazing and dynamic trainer who… Read more »

Charlotte’s Story

Hi. My name is Charlotte Osborn. I have been attending SoCal Fitness Boot Camp for Women since 2007. Being active duty Navy, I have to maintain a certain level of fitness and pass the Navy physical fitness test twice a year. The fitness test is not easy and requires training to pass. With my work schedule and being a Command Master Chief, it was hard to find time in the day for physical training. One day I saw an add in an advertising mailer for the boot camp class that was… Read more »

Melissa’s Story

I recently went through a personal change in my life that brought me down. After my life event change, I came face to face with how much weight I had actually gained over the years. I was comfortable in my life style. I was not eating healthy, not spending anytime to care for myself. The problem was that I didn’t know what to do. Mainly, it was that I didn’t have the accountability, discipline and motivation to do anything about it. The other problem is that I don’t like gyms…. Read more »

Elisa S’s Story

With So Cal Fitness Boot Camp for Women, I finally got some of the weight loss results I’ve been dreaming of for years! When my girlfriend asked me if I wanted to join a bootcamp class with her, my initial reaction was, “ya right, that sounds like fun!” But, after some convincing, I signed up and proceeded to be challenged and encouraged every single class I attended. Erin, the instructor, knows how to give a great workout and to push you to hit is faster and harder but without making… Read more »

Ann I’s Story

I loved this boot camp!! The instructor (Karen) was amazing – no matter what your exercise level is, she always made you seem equal to all. The results were amazing and they made it fun and a new routine every time you went. They took the time to correct your form so that you were doing it correctly and getting the most benefit from your workout. I would highly recommend this boot camp to anyone who wants to be challenged.

Jen B’s Story

I am on my 2nd session at the 5:30am class in Oceanside. I consider myself in decent shape but each class is extremely challenging for me. And I love the fact it’s 4 days a week! I am competitive, mainly with myself, so this class forces me to push myself to be better & faster. Amanda, our trainer, is awesome!  She is very knowledgeable & is very observant to make sure our form is correct. She is also encouraging & makes the class fun! Highly recommend this program for all… Read more »

I am an Officer in the Army National Guard w/18 years of service, 4 of them active. I attended the Enlisted Army Basic Training Camp and the Officers Basic Training Camp.

At that time I was running and exercising 5 days a week with my company. A couple of years later I am in a position to… Read more »

Joyce H’s Story

As my first session with SoCal Fitness Boot Camp enters its final week, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for providing such a great experience. The boot camp experience has put my exercise routine back on track. I love being outdoors each morning. I never know what to expect other than knowing that I’ll be challenged and worked to the best of my abilities. You provide a very motivating class that proves to never be boring. I’ve never been a group exercise person but I am now… Read more »

Eugenia’s Story

I am NOT a morning person so it was a big step for me to commit to the 5:30AM class and if you were not as energetic, enthusiastic and inspiring it would be easy to just roll over in bed and skip it. I have been telling everyone how much I love Boot Camp and love knowing that my workout is done as I start my day. THANK YOU!
