Skinny Jeans – Small Group Training Success

Yep, we said it, skinny jeans and muffin top in the same sentence.

C’mon, we know that you know exactly what a muffin top is so why not do something fun and effective and burn that extra fat before summer is over. That is exactly what the following clients did in May of this year. They took part in our first “beta test” small group indoor training protocol.

It was an 8-week training and customized nutrition program that yielded SUPER results for EVERYONE who participated. And yep, every Challenger that could not fit into their 2-sizes too small jeans at the beginning of 8 weeks, DID fit into them at the end of 8 weeks.

The Challengers lost over 89 inches total, mostly from the hips, thighs, butt and mid section while at the same time they got stronger and tightened and lifted the rest of their body! Let’s look at their results.

Skinny Jeans Update and NEW Challenge

20 challengers…8 weeks…32 sessions…to get into their Skinny Jeans.

Mission Impossible? No way!

At the end of week #6, ALL Challengers who tried on their “two sizes too small” Skinny Jeans, FIT INTO THEM! Check out a session in progress. What a super success we had for our FIRST Skinny Jeans & Muffin Top Melt Off Challenge.

This Challenge is a professional fat loss exercise program led by trained coaches and included metabolic and total body protocols – high-intensity cardio bursts and strength and resistance training.  This is NOT Boot Camp! All sessions are held at our new, almost state-of-the-art fitness facility. This eight-week program, which ran from April 19 to -June 12, consisted of four workout sessions per week (for a total of 32, 45-minute sessions). Sessions were offered on a variety of days and times so all Challengers had a few choices to constantly pick from to suit their schedules.

The Challenge Recap:

  • It all began at the MABC new indoor facility, 4170 N. Port Washington Rd, Suite 2, in Glendale.
  • Contenders brought in a pair of jeans (from their closet or newly purchased) that they would like to fit into; jeans had to be at least two sizes too small.
  • A photo was taken with participants trying to pull on their jeans (over a pair of spandex shorts or pants).
  • Jeans were kept at Milwaukee Adventure Boot Camp indoor facility for ongoing “try-ons” every two weeks.
  • Participants were given a free fitness assessment and circumference measurement at the time of the initial “try-on” photo shoot.
  • Challengers whose jeans fit at the end of the Challenge (June 12th) will be entered into a drawing for a free pair of designer jeans donated by our partner, Stephanie Horne Boutique.

“Imagine losing two jean sizes in eight weeks!” Our Challengers did it! What better way to kick off summer than by shedding those pounds you’ve been wanting to lose?  They followed this training and nutrition and program and found success.”

What about you? C’mon, give yourself 8-weeks and be in the those Skinny Jeans or just lose that Gut before Labor Day! This is NOT a gimmick. It is the most recent, effective total body and metabolic training protocol performed in a small group format.

Intrigued? Want to know more about the NEW Skinny Jeans & Gut to Cut Challenge running July 5th – August 28th? Check it out online and keep your eyes open for our e-blast e-flier. Registration for the next session opens on Wednesday June 16. This is co-ed and all are welcome, but the challenge will take only 40 participants to keep the “small group” element in tact.  So sign up without delay. For more information about the NEW Skinny Jeans & Gut to Cut Challenge, visit www.milwaukeebootcamp.com or call 414-881-5FIT (5348).

What is an Advanced Camp? How Can I Participate?

Anyone wishing to participate in an “advanced camp” needs to have already completed a full boot camp with Milwaukee Adventure Boot Camp.

As coaches, we want to make sure all participants have developed a baseline strength level in their muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments to avoid injury. Most advanced camp will run during the interim week(s) between full boot camp sessions.  Advanced camps are an excellent opportunity for the MABC coaches to focus on individuals in this smaller group setting; since advanced camps are limited to 20 campers.

These 60 or 90 minute sessions ($20 or $30) are similar to a typical “week four” boot camp session but will tend to be higher in intensity with regard to cardio and resistance training. The programming is more challenging and incorporates complex exercises (adding several moves to one ‘exercise’) and includes longer periods of high intensity circuits followed by slightly longer periods of rest (i.e. Tabatas: 90 seconds ON w/ 30 or 45 seconds OFF). Most of the advanced camp protocol will have campers using heavier weights or more challenging landscapes (i.e. higher step-ups or skipping more steps).

This is a perfect opportunity to try something new, challenging and to keep your boot camp legs about you during an “off” week. Keep your eyes peeled for update “E-Blasts” on Traveling and Bike Advanced Boot Camps! If you are interested in signing up for one of these camps, please do so online, CLICK HERE to reserve your spot.
