Bootcamper of the Program for September - Congrats Nana!


I have been a member since November 2008 almost 2 years!! I love that every class is unique. Every class is an opportunity to try different variations of familiar exercises. I love the comradery of working with a group of people - it keeps it fun! Expect the unexpected is what I always think when going into class.

I am about 30 pounds  lighter and have gone down four dress sizes. I just recently fit into my "skinny jeans" that were in the back of my closet - I love it!! 

Body Buster has become part of my regular exercise routine. My week does not feel complete unless I do my classes. The feeling of accomplishment that I experience after every class is something I have never felt with any other exercise routine I have tried. I am proud of myself after every class that I completed it and now I can't live without it!!
I have never felt so strong physically. This feeling has traversed into my everyday life. I have become much more flexible and agile, and it has encouraged me to make exercise part of my everyday life. I have increased energy, de -stresses me after a long day of work and has encouraged me to eat properly and respect my body. I feel l have less limitations of what I can't do and approach everything in class with "I can do this" attitude.

Body Buster is a wonderful network of people with positive attitudes and encouragement. There is nothing like working out with a group of people that are trying to accomplish the same goals as you are. I feel like I am part of a team - that we in this together. I look forward to class, to seeing everyone and how far they have come and how hard they work. It pushes me to be the best that I can be.

Body Buster has been a life changing experience for me. I want to thank the Etobicoke South crew who  rain or shine are out there with me, being so positive and keeping it fresh and fun.  I just wanted to give a special shout out to my girl Kara who always pushes me to challenge myself, work harder, increase my intensity and "bring it" to every class. Mind over Body become my motto !! it has been a privilege to learn from you and be part of your class..thank you!! 

Body Buster would like to congratulate Nana on her accomplishments! Way to GO!

Team Body Buster @ the Run for the Cure 2010!

Team Body Buster before the Run!
Yesterday was the CIBC Run for the Cure 2010! Team Body Buster was there in great spirits, all clad in crazy gear and decked out in PINK!

We ran and walked 1km and 5km through the streets of downtown Toronto amongst 20,000 other people, being cheered on by people with motivating signs and shouting "KEEP GOING"! There were musicians on nearly every street playing music to keep us pumped, and signs at every kilometer mark to let us know we were getting closer and closer to the finish.

Everyone did an amazing job fundraising, generating team spirit, and walking/running. We raised OVER $5,000!!! We are so happy!! The total run itself raised over $5,000,000!

We just wanted to thank everyone for coming out to the run, and to especially thank everyone who donated! Our team captain Tanya was awesome as well and we thank her for the amazing work she did!

We are also still accepting donations for the RUN - as we have a goal of $7,500 and would love to reach that goal! Visit our team sponsorship page here: http://www.runforthecure.com/site/TR/RunfortheCure/Ontario?pg=team&fr_id=1100&team_id=10729
