James at KB Sport Camp - San Fran, Feb 11 - 13

James had THE greatest trip to San Francisco for the WKC Sport Camp hosted by Ice Chamber and facilitated by Absolute World Kettlebell champion Ivan Denisov and Honoured Master of Sport, Valery Fedorenko. Ice Chamber just posted this video and it shows a summary of the weekend and you can catch some glimpses of James working hard. Personal pictures from James coming soon, so he tells me anyways. He's misplaced his camera cord apparently. If he kept it attached to a kettlebell he probably wouldn't lose it...

A message and invitation from Michele Shorter to YOU!

Message from Michele Shorter...

Wow, 15 years... It feels like just yesterday when Bootcamp was born. I remember thinking I would put people through an amazing 12 weeks and they would have a really good understanding of what they could accomplish on their own, in their own back yard, in our great city. I never anticipated the lasting friendships or how I would be inspired by watching those very people reach their goals, become "hooked", not only on fitness, but on the bootcamp community itself.

To my clients and friends I say thank you so very much for your commitment to fitness and living your best life. To my most amazing team of trainers I say thank you from the bottom of my heart for caring so much and delivering the best workouts this city has ever seen. I am moved every day by someone at "work" and am forever grateful for the many lives I have seen changed, including my own :)

Love Michele

James heads to training camp

BDHQ’s James Beckerley is heading to San Francisco tomorrow for 3 days to train with the Absolute World Champion and Record Holder in Biathlon and Long Cycle for Kettlebells, Ivan Denisov, and Honored Master of Sport and 1st World Champion of Kettlebell Lifting, Valery Fedorenko for the most intensive kettlebell training camp to hit U.S. soil.

I'm nervous and equally excited to see what James will bring back with him for Kettlebell classes next week! I swear my arms are sore just imagining what he'll do to us... is it mean that I'm a little bit happy that James will get tortured all weekend as he has done to me all week? heh heh

HAVE FUN JAMES! Miss you already...

BDHQ Hits Pender Island

The ladies of BDHQ took over Pender Island this weekend for a dose of hiking, biking, swimming (synchronized, and there may be video to prove it...), second hand shopping and nature watching (aka Dani's sleep talking). Such a beautiful island and the staff at Poet's Cove were fantastic! Tercio and Pedro; our new buddies. Tell them we say hi if you stay there! The locals don't like to mess around on that one lane bridge...get outta their way! My legs are nice and sore from hiking Mt Norman. Good times with great ladies...

Steve wants to know...when was the last time you Bootcamped??

Ah Steve, gotta love him. If you have ever been an outdoor Bootcamp participant in the past, you are invited to come back for "Bootcamp 101" - $101 per month for 3 months. Offer runs Feb 1 - Mar 31. Get back to class this spring!

Even better, if you own a vintage, old skool Bootcamp shirt, bring it down to BDHQ on Johnson and trade it in for a brand new shirt for FREE! You can even keep your old one if you still love it.
