Our boot camp coaches weigh in on how you can slim down and get fit.
Step 1…Bare it.
Stepping on the scale, even shirtless, can make you face how far off track you have fallen. Strip down and get on the scale once a week. Remember, during boot camp you can swell so your biggest weight loss will be 3-4 days after the last day of camp.
Step 2…Weigh your food, too.
A lot of people aren’t aware of how many calories they are putting into their mouths and can’t understand why they are gaining weight. The biggest culprit? Huge portions. Use a food scale until you can judge proper serving sizes. (Psst – after awhile, portions will get bigger again…so don’t sell your food scale)
Step 3…Shop like Catherine.
Clear your cupboards of the stuff you can’t resist (for Catherine, that is peanut butter?), and stock up on fruit, almond milk, brown rice, beans, oatmeal and high-fiber cereal. Because what you buy is what you eat. If you are unsure how to locate the healthiest stuff in the grocery store, take a Grocery Shopping Tour.
Even just one Saturday can jump-start your workout motivation. Change it up with different locations and different coaches. Each site has unique challenges and each coach has a unique style. And if you like stairs, make sure to take the Advanced Camp that is offered at Concordia University.
