Happy 3rd Anniversary, Body Buster Bootcamp!

This morning was an exciting time for the Body Buster(r) Team, our members, and their friends and family!

A huge thank-you to everyone who came! It was definitely time to celebrate and have some fun - Bootcamp Style!

Body Buster celebrated their 3rd anniversary of bootcamp today at Franklin Horner Community Centre in Etobicoke with a giant, hour-long bootcamp class, led by instructors Dani, Kara, Huy and Lisa!

Gather Round! A Huge Thank You!

The day started off with a huge thank you from all the instructors, and a heartfelt speech from Dani. Awards and a special thank-you were presented to our two long-term members Tanya and Nada, who have been with us from the very beginning!

Many members and their friends and family participated. There were more burpees going on than we've ever seen in one place at one time! Woohoo! In four rotating "stations", participants enjoyed drills, squats, v-sits, pumping muscles with resistance bands, plank holds, pushups, matwork, stretching and much more. 
Kids were also invited, and got to let mom & dad do bootcamp while they blew bubbles, played bocce ball, had an "egg on the spoon" race, and did what kids do best - find things to play with that aren't toys (the cardboard box phenomenon) - the Body Buster orange pylons!

After they got their bodies busted by the 4 instructors, participants were invited to continue on with the Body Buster Olympics! Everyone did amazing, but Tanya and Huy battled it out to over 5 minutes of plank holds (the debate continues as to whether crazy Huy's knee grazed the ground! hehe!), and Donovan won the 1km race with a huge lead! We decided not to put you through the agony (what agony!?) of doing as many burpees as possible in one minute, as you had all already done so much good work today. You are forgiven...... just this once. :) After all, the REAL bootcamp classes start tomorrow!! Oh yeah!

The afternoon was topped off by a few healthy refreshments, some chatting & mingling, and most important on this occasion, some birthday cake!

Thanks again to everyone who has made the last 3 years of Body Buster so amazing, so postive, and so exciting. We are more thankful than you know, and are so pleased to see how our the Body Buster Program has enriched your lives.

Many more exciting years to come!

The Body Buster Team
