Boot Camp

Driven Body Boot Camp

Posted on

It’s finally here and I’m freaking ECSTATIC about it!  Driven Body Boot Camp is ready to roll on Monday, August 30th!

Now, what the hell is Driven Body Boot Camp?

Short answer is it’s Salinas Premier Weight Loss Boot Camp!  When you join up you don’t just buy your way into a boot camp where someone screams at your for 2 hours a couple days per week.  Here’s what you get with DBBC:

-Driven Training Systems Weight Loss Nutrition Manual
-Driven Training Systems Sleep & Stress Management Manifesto
-Free Fitness Evaluation and Assessment
-Monthly Weight Loss Support Group
-Continuous Nutrition Counseling
-A Fun, Challenging, and Positive Training Environment
-Monthly Tracking of Progress
-Success Barrier Evaluation and a Personalized Barrier Removal Plan
-30 Day No Questions Asked Money Back Guarantee

Here’s the problem with most other boot camps.
#1- No Periodization
Periodization is a big fancy word for having a plan. Most boot camp instructors just throw together random exercises and call it an effective workout. At DBBC we always come with a plan in order to maximize your results and decrease the amount of time you need to spend in the gym.

#2- Zero Nutritional Support
Most of the time if your instructor gives you nutrition advice it’s nothing more than eat frequently, drink water, and take fish oil. If you aren’t losing weight then the only answer is to eat less and train more. We work closely with our clients to develop a nutritional plan that they can sustain over the long term and get sustainable results! Developing healthy habits then building on those at the table, in the gym, and out of it is the first step in getting you where you want to be.

#3- Overtraining
I’ve heard of boot camps that run up to 2 hours per session! When you figure in that 99.99999% of all boot camp workouts are built around high intensity interval training you get the perfect recipe for overtraining. Overtraining in the general sense is pushing your body beyond it’s ability to recover. Here is what happens in your body when you overtrain:

-Metabolism shuts down and you burn fewer calories
-Muscle recovery declines making you sore all the time
-Your body panics and starts hoarding calories so that you can actually GAIN fat despite your best efforts
-Motivation hits an all time low because not only are you not losing weight, your performance during the training session declines, and your nervous system (which plays a HUGE role in fat loss) shuts down
-When your nervous system shuts down you stop losing weight and lose muscle tone as well!
-Sleep quality declines so you don’t feel rested and have no energy
-Because of the poor sleep quality you crave carbs making your blood sugar bounce all over causing huge energy swings, makes you cranky and irritable, and effectively shutting down fat loss!

This ties back into #1 and having a plan. By having a plan and monitoring participants closely we prevent you from burning out and keep you on track to reaching your goals!

#4- Negative Training Environment
Who wants to be screamed at for two hours at a time by someone they don’t even know? You have enough stress to deal with without some random trainer jumping down your throat to do one more freakin squat! While we will do whatever we can to help motivate you we will never treat you like you are actually in a real life boot camp. We are ALWAYS 100% invested in you reaching your goals and maintaining those results. That means that we’ll be strict and give guidance where you need it, hold you accountable for showing up and working hard, and praise you when you reach each new goal.

#5-Frequent Breaks
Most boot camps run 4-5 weeks then take 3-4 weeks off. They absolutely must do this because usually by the end of boot camp their participants are so burned out that they have to take 3-4 weeks completely off before they feel like doing anything again! It’s a vicious cycle that is an perfect example of 1 step forward, 2 steps back. In some cases it’s more like 1 step forward, 3-4 steps back! Driven Body Boot Camp runs continuously 12 months out of the year. We can do this precisely because we don’t just beat you into the ground every time you step into the gym. If you want to reach your goals and maintain those results it takes CONSISTENCY.

Intensity is great but it’s not sustainable long term. I guarantee you can’t maintain very high intensity over 30-45 minutes let alone 1-2 hours! Attempting to do this multiple times a week for several weeks in a row will leave you burned out, overtrained, unmotivated and most likely back at square 1.
