Congratulations to all classes for beating the strength challenge and Big congrats to the 6:30pm and 9am classes for also beating the conditioning challenge.  Everyone is off to a great start!  These are tough workouts and you trained hard to beat the challenges.  Wow!  A lot of you got 9’s on the dumbbell complex and Pam and Charlotte got 10 and Carol M fresh from a trip to Florida got 11 rounds.  But we can’t forget about our silent superstar, Paul Cullen for enduring through 11.33 rounds.  You know how hard complexes are because you’ve done them.  Imagine doing 11.33 rounds in 10 minutes.  PC was moving!

High five to Pam, Kim, Louise and Debbie C for completing 9 rounds of the band complex.

Complexes require & make strong lungs and a super high tolerance for muscle burning discomfort.  You were all impressive today!

First off, congratulations to all classes for beating the 450 rep team challenge.  All classes beat the challenge by an average of 30 extra push ups.  J

Second.  Did you see how close you were on the Round & Round We Go Ab Finisher and Straw Drop Lap Arounds.  The 6:30pm class was 2 exercises or 20 reps away from beating the ab finisher challenge.  The 6:30pm class was 1 exercise or 10 reps away and the 6am class was 1 round and 1 exercise or 40 total reps.  If that looks or difficult just consider there were 13, 10 and 18 people respectively working towards the goal.

In regards to the straw drop, the 9am was roughly 2 straws short per person, the 6:30pm class was 3 seconds short of 3 people passing the bucket.  It was so cool to watch your sprinting around the gym and turn the last corner.  Ahhh!  “next time!”.  The 6am class was short roughly 1 lap per person.  1 more lap in the early minutes could have brought it home for you.

Great effort to all.  You’ve now completed 4 weeks.  We have 1 more week of this phase, 1 team challenge, 1 individual challenge and post testing, then we have post measurements on Saturday, July 3 by appointment and then you swagger along for a recovery week.

How do you feel now?  3 Challenges done and 1 to go!

1st off Congratulations to all classes for beating both the Glute Finisher and Lateral Shuffle Conditioning Challenges.  The glute finisher and the strength challenges were written well as you beat and missed each by less than 1 round per person.  The lateral shuffle was too easy of a number (16 total lengths or 8 per person) for you to reach, but regardless of the number to beat, you crushed it.  Everyone trained hard from start to finish.

Are you loving happy hormones yet?  Do you love your team and training environment?  Do you love boot camp?  Are you getting in your best shape and possibly the best shape of your life?  I can’t answer for you, but know that my goals are to create an experience and a program that gets you to reply to those answers with a jump out of your chair and shout at the top of your lungs, “YES!” for a response.

Shout outs to everyone who blocked out time on their schedule and had the courage to come to class for these workouts.  They’re tough and so now are you.

Special shout outs to everyone who topped 4 rounds in the strength circuits and a super special shout out to Paul Cullen for rocking out 6.375 rounds in the strength.  Not that you ever have time to watch, but he’s doing level 3 for most every exercise (level 2 on the others) and he still pumped out 6.375 rounds.  That’s bad a**.

But before you get a big head Paul, we’ve got some room to improve on the glute finisher and lateral shuffles.

Special shout outs to Deb R, Deb H (did you know we have not 1, but 4 super Deb’s in the 6am class?) Marisa, Jackie, Jen M, Laurel, Thomas, Hannah and Julie B for all doing 17 or more lengths on the shuttle.  (heck, I only did 16).

First off.  WOW!  Think about how tough this Individual Challenge Workout Was.  Now look at how fast Marisa, Jen S and Charlotte completed their workouts.  They completed a 40 minute workout in less than 30 min.


From a physiological standpoint, they have tremendous stamina, strength, muscle, and cardiovascular endurance.  They may have done some level 1 exercises, but they also did level 2’s and 3’s.  These are 3 super fit and super strong women and are great representations of what your program can do for you if you’re consistent with your attendance, your training intensity, your nutrition plan, your cardio minutes and your recovery.

Now that we recognized our leaders, let’s recognize you.  You completed a super tough strength & conditioning workout.  I got emails, phone calls, texts from you or your teammates letting me know how tough this workout was, how surprisingly fun it was and how your knees and limbs were sore, bruised and scraped.

Do you think you could have done this workout on day 1?  A few of you may say definitely, some may say maybe and the majority of you would say “no way”!  Now consider how far you’ve come.

Are you changing your body?  Yes?

Are your transforming your life?  Yes?

Are you getting in your best shape?  Yes?

Are you associating fun with exercise?  Yes?

Are good things starting to happen to you?  Yes?

Do you have more energy?  Yes?

Do you feel better about yourself?  Yes?

Do people look or talk to you differently now?  Yes?

Do you look forward to exercise now?  Yes?

Has your home/work life improved?  Yes?

Do you appreciate your training environment?  Yes?

Are you glad you have pre-screened teammates?  Yes?

Do you value having a program, not just a workout?  Yes?

Do you like having your own coach?  Yes?

Most if not all of your answers should be yes.  Those that aren’t should happen over time.

You know what the best part is.  You DID IT!  You contacted CYBBC.  You chose us.  You made time in your schedule.  You showed up.  You trained hard.  You trained outside of class.  You shopped.  You prepped.  You ate better.

Congratulations to you!

You’re a winner!

Your coach,

Mike Alves
