Today I did it ya’ll! I survived my FIRST day of bootcamp with Monte Sanders. His program is the Sanders Optimum Fitness bootcamp and it is no joke. For years I have been hearing about it from my friend but never really paid that much attention to it since I felt my gym membership was enough. Well I was ready to challenge myself and kick it up a notch.
Another friend forwarded a FREE session he was hosting for those interested in joining the bootcamp so I definitely attended. I could not participate because I had the children in tow but I got to watch and I was SOLD! He worked those people like they paid for it! It was hustle…hustle…..and bustle the entire POWER HOUR! I mean – it was no joke.
I received notification to sign up and all of a sudden I had hesitation! I mean I know I was interested BUT….the only session I can attend is 5:30 am! This is 3 times a week vs. 2 with my trainer. This thing is 1 hour per session vs. 30 minutes. Ummm..am I really ready for this? If I pay I just committed for the entire month of August. The JITTERS set in. Then I listened to my own voice…..no risk no reward! If you want to see real change you have to do something others just won’t do. You have to push. It won’t be comfortable but nothing worth having is ever easily gained.
I had to be my own motivating voice! And folks sometimes you have to motivate yourself. Others can’t carry you. You have to want it more than anyone else wants it for you. Only THEN can you commit to your own health and well being.
I went to my first session today and got SMOKED and that is good. Mr. Sanders still told me I did a good job today on my first day ever. And at my next session I be a monkey’s uncle I let a little 12 year old out run me on the suicide DRILLS! I have too much pride for that. LOL!!
It’s all good…I am glad I walked out there and started to really stretch myself and be about it vs. just talk about it. We all get in our fitness/workout comfort zones and if you aren’t seeing the changes you want – you know what you have to do. Pump it UP!
Stay blessed and enjoy my little video on my experience.
