Congratulations, Karolyn! You're the Body Buster Fitness July 2015 Bootcamper of the Program!


"Knowing that my commitment and hard work with the program helped me achieve my weight loss goals and many other health benefits is amazing"

I joined Body Buster Fitness in February of 2013. When I joined I was at the heaviest weight I had ever been and was so unhappy with my appearance and fitness level. When I joined Body Buster, I had no idea what to expect except what I had seen on TV. I was so happy to meet Dani! She welcomed me to the group and quickly got to know my goals and what obstacles I might face. 

I have asthma and low back pain and they have not hindered my progress with bootcamp one bit. No matter which instructor is teaching the class, they are always able to help me modify the exercises so that I can complete them comfortably and effectively. 

There is never-ending encouragement and support from the BBF team. It is so wonderful that Dani checks in from time to time to see how I’m feeling and evaluate if my goals have changed. In addition to fitness support, the instructors also have a wealth of knowledge on nutrition. I always knew that nutrition and exercise lead to a healthier body but was never able to really commit to both of them. Since starting with Body Buster, I have lost 14 pounds and 22 inches! It has been a total body transformation.

I continue with the Body Buster program because I feel stronger (I can’t stop flexing in the mirror) and am so much happier. My energy is through the roof and I am learning how to love exercise. I have even joined Team Body Buster for the last two years at the CIBC Run for the Cure. When I started bootcamp, I could barely run 1km, now I can run 5km with ease. Body Buster has become a big part of my life. 

I attend classes twice a week and really enjoy the variety of exercises we do. No class is ever the same. It is also a really great group of people. My fellow die hard members are a great support system. You can really feel the camaraderie as we push through the last 10 (insert exercise here). Whether its pushups on the ball or burpees, we push each other and, speaking for myself, enjoy every minute of it.
With the fast pace of life, it is often hard to commit yourself to a program like this. To those people I would say there is always time to do something for you. It is as little as two hours a week to focus on yourself and I promise, you will feel so good for doing it. Even sweaty, sore and exhausted, it a great feeling finishing each class. Body Buster has allowed me to re-focus myself and concentrate on my weight loss and fitness goals. I plan to be a Body Buster for many years to come! Thank you BBF team!
