Boot Camp for Kids in Brisbane

Boot Camp for Kids! Executive Results has put together a unique fitness program that will be available at Aspley State School to participate in. The program is a weekly Kids Boot Camp of just 30 minutes that will teach kids team building and leadership skills, while doing so they also get a good “old school” workout that will help them lose weight quickly and also have fun.

 First session is on 11 February 8AM sharp (or penalties) at the school oval, the program is once a week on Thursday and runs for 5 weeks, cost of the program is $75.

Channel 10 Totally Wild has shown interest in this program and will be on the spot to film and participate in one of the Boot Camps sessions, which is totally awesome!

About the Boot Camp
Respect and discipline is regarded highly in the Boot Camp Program. The definition of “Discipline” is the willingness and compliance to requests, respect for parents or teachers and other authority figures, self reliance and teamwork; it does not refer to physical discipline, there will never be any cursing or physical contact between the instructor and kids. This program is intended for everyday kids, kids who need to get more active and/or lose a bit of weight, the program is not intended for unruly kids in any way.

 The program is run by Personal Trainers from Executive Results who all have kids themselves! The Personal Trainer will show up in their Army Camouflage pants, Army coloured shirt and cap which will impress every kid, so far all kids have been very positive and always think they are dealing with the Boot Camp Commando (TV Character) or Jillian Michaels when Anna Junghans takes the session 😉

The Boot Camp is strict, your kids might totally love it from day one, or they might hate it at first and start to love it later. If you think you don’t want to hear “I got penalties for talking back or showing no respect” then this Boot Camp is not for you and your kids. We just wanted to be clear on this point, and not pull any wool over anyone’s eyes 😉

Healthy Eating
The program also promotes healthy eating habits by donating a percentage back in the form of fruit and healthy snacks that are handed out for free during the lunch break.

The program is for year 3 till year 6. Places limited to 10 per class, reserve your spot now by calling Anna on 0417 093 806 or email kids-boot-camp@executiveresults.com.au

Bringing Back The Old Style Of Training Into The Mainstream

Executive Results a Brisbane based fitness business is bringing back the old style of training (grunting and moaning) into the mainstream. The good old sandbags will be pulled out of the closet, huge tractor tyres will finally become useful, the sledgehammer will no longer just be used for destruction work (breaking down doors for example), but also for construction, construction of muscles that is!

Executive Results has been in business since the year 2004 and has been one of the forerunners when it comes to seriously hardcore training in their Boot Camps. In 2009 the business created microfitness® and organised for Scott Ramsdell to fly over from the United States and provide a certification for trainers in Caveman Training. Since the certification some serious athletes have been created through hard work, sweating, commitment and sometimes letting out a bit of chunder.

2010 brings more exciting news, as we’re opening the doors to ‘The TOUGH Spot’ in Stafford Brisbane, a training centre where noise and hard work is expected. The equipment list includes things like; slosh pipes, tyres, ropes, sand bags, logs, barrels plus lots of other non- traditional equipment, and let’s not forget to mention Gas Masks, yes gas masks, apparently they seem to mimic some of the effects of high altitude training and help condition your lungs.

Some of the other exciting stuff we will experiment with is the use of ice baths or cold room, the cold is to assist with recovery of the muscles after a serious workout and help prevent Rhabdomyolysis. We are currently running a trial to see if a cold bath before exercise improves performance.

We have partnered with another successful business in Brisbane of which the owner is also a certified Caveman Training Instructor and has a similar style of hard training, besides the partnership, we’re also looking to rent space out to other trainers around Brisbane who have always been looking to rent space where they can be themselves, not hold back, push their clients to their maximum ability and make noise. Besides now running a training centre in Brisbane both businesses will dominate Brisbane with Boot Camp locations all over the place, for example; Eatons Hill, North Lakes, Bridgeman Downs, Stafford, Mitchelton, CBD, Clayfield and a few more to be added during the year.

In the middle of the year we’ve organised a 7 day seminar/workout/holiday in Phuket which is going to be the best seminar of 2010 with a unique format that allows the participants to learn, demonstrate and experience everything they are taught! Participants are taught new training techniques by the best in the business (Scott Ramsdell, Anna Junghans and an Old School Thai Trainer). The participants will also learn how to make equipment that can be used in workouts. The workouts will be tough and smash every participant involved, this seminar is not for the weak. There will also be some survivor style surprises that will keep everyone guessing.

What is a Quitter?

Definition of a Quitter

As a health & fitness business and Caveman Training Trainers we do not like people quitting on us! Now, this might seem a bit hard and unfair, but let’s take a closer look at the definition of a Quitter;

A Quitter is someone who still has sufficient energy left to complete an exercise but CHOOSES not to complete it, because it’s too hard or gets them out of their comfort zone. A Quitter is someone who quits because they can’t physically perform the exercise at that moment, doesn’t take the time to recover, get back on their feet and give it another go!

What Is It Not!
A Quitter is not someone who stops and really can’t do anymore because they are injured or thinks they might get injured if they continue.

We are all about promoting a No Quitting attitude, as long as it’s within the safety zone and doesn’t put the client in any danger of getting injured.

Boot Camp – Booty Camp

The bastardization of Boot Camp

These day’s everyone runs a Boot Camp just because it’s cool and allows the participants to say “Yeah, I do Boot Camp twice a week!”.

But what’s really happening is the bastardization of “Boot Camp”; let’s have a look at the definition of “Fitness Boot Camp”.

Fitness Boot Camps are designed to push people a little bit further than they would normally push themselves in the gym alone and are based on the military style of training.

In a Military Boot Camp Recruits are subjected to rigorous physical training, both to prepare for the demands of combat and to weed out the less able or insufficiently motivated. This also builds morale and provides a sense of accomplishment for the remaining recruits who have met the physical requirements.

We run Real Fitness Boot Camps and proof of that was recently confirmed again when we had someone join who was interested in a Boot Camp that pushes people and produces results, the person even enquired about our Caveman Training (which is even harder than our Boot Camps) but decided to settle for our Fitness Boot Camp where we don’t do push ups on our knees. 4 sessions later we got an email saying “Thanks, but no thanks” obviously we had to investigate what the reason was as we do everything in our power to keep recruits participating in the program when it gets a little tough.

After a little pushing we got the reason, and it was that this person was not really looking for results, and not at ease with being out of the comfort zone, she was more interested in a chat session with coffee breaks. She decided to join Booty Camp in South Bank. Nothing wrong with that choice, as she’ll come back when she requires real results, as for Booty Camp, I question why call it “Boot Camp” when you provide a woman’s only group fitness session, where there is no pushing, lot’s of chatting, no real challenges. I do understand that Booty Camp (Boot Camp) is just a marketing ploy, but that doesn’t stop me from whining about it 😉
