“It is an amazing feeling when you come from a place that nothing was possible. Then you get to a point where everything is possible.” Shannon
Shannon has lost 50#, her BMI has gone from 46.5 to 35. Her diabetes is no longer an issue and her blood sugar has gone from 6.4 to 5.2 without medication! Her pant size has gone from 24 to 16 and she is off all of her medications! When she joined boot camp her goal was to be able to run. She is now running around the entire building, swinging 26# kettlebells, doing box jumps, deadlifts, pullups and more. She is an inspiration to every woman in boot camp and we are in awe of how far she has come and how determined she is to reach her goals.
“I came to boot camp because it looked challenging and fun. FUN? I know, I know – what could be fun about heaving sandbags and pushing tires around? Well, it just is. I had recently retired and felt weak and wimpy. I needed to get stronger and healthier for this new phase of my life. Now, I am. Thanks to Robyn and all the boot camp women. I can do all kinds of stuff that don’t make sense for a 63 year old woman, like deadlifting 123 lbs., planking for 10 min., pullups, situps, pushups for what seems like forever, skipping up the seats at Red Rocks, and more. Thank you, Robyn, for the inspiration, and for taking care of my bad knees”. Vicki
“Woot, Woot!” I say about my boot camp class
I go every week and the coaches kick ass
But I am not alone, strong women abound
All sizes and shapes, from lean to round
We huff and we puff and sweat up a storm
Laughing like school girls in a freshman dorm
Weight lifting, burpees, wall-ball and such
Jump rope and rowing, now a hundred toe- touch
And just when I slow; ”Oh you can do more”,
Says Robyn, head- trainer, she is hard-core
My muscles are stronger and getting defined
All while having the best of time!” Barb
Charlotte lost 8#, 4% bodyfat, 7″ in 28 days! “Muscles hurt that I didn’t even know existed… but guess what, within a couple months I started SEEING muscles that I never knew existed. I was definitely getting sculpted and that was a great feeling! Boot camp is a lot cheaper than having a personal trainer every day – but with Robyn, it’s like you have a personal trainer. She is so in tune with everyone’s body issues, always adjusting exercises if you have trouble areas. And she gives everyone personal attention during every workout. She pushes you and inspires you. She doesn’t make you do your best she makes YOU WANT to do your best.”
Christie lost 4#, 5% body fat and gained 4# of lean muscle in 27 days. “I had a biometric health screening today and found out that since my last one – 3 months ago – I have lost more weight (now 135) and dropped ½ inch on waist (29”). My BMI is 22. Additionally, my cholesterol is down 10 pts (175) – HDL is up 11 pts (91) and LDL is nonexistent as my HDL is so good. My triglycerides are below 45″.
“Honestly, since meeting you and joining boot camp, I am the healthiest I have been since I don’t know when. All you do – workouts, nutrition, and positivity – hit home and I have really changed my life because of it! Thank you for being you and giving back to so many!
I am so much happier, healthier, and stronger. Never did I think I would be in this good of shape so fast. My husband praised me for doing this class and taking time for me. Usually my time is dedicated to my job and the family but not to what I want to do. He loves how I feel better about myself and plus loves the new body I have”.
Betsy lost 5#, 4% body fat and 4″ in 27 days. “When I started boot camp, I wanted to get stronger. I wanted to get into shape. I had NO idea that boot camp was going to change my entire outlook on what it meant to be “in shape”. I now realize that being “in shape” means taking care of myself physically AND emotionally. You run a phenomenal boot camp that not only focuses on fitness, but on taking care of yourself as well.
Jill lost 10.4#, 4% bodyfat and 5″ in 27 days. “I signed up for the first month of boot camp thinking this will get me off the couch and give me something to do. Boy was I wrong! It did not just get me off the couch, but gave me back my energy and motivation and made me a happier person. I particularly like the variety of activities and the sense of fun that is built into the program. She made a custom program for me because of my knee and ankle surgeries. No other class instructor had taken the time or cared enough to do that for me”.
“I love bootcamp with Robyn, not just any bootcamp. I love the diversity of workouts, the personal attention Robyn gives us all and how hard she pushes us each day. Her gym is all about getting real results. If you will put in the effort – she will change your diet, fitness and energy level. The results happen so quickly when you stick to her prescription. Robyn’s Bootcamp is a bonding, butt- kicking experience. Repeat with humor, sore muscles, and weight loss.” Leah
“I started Boot Camp in May of 2011. I was 55 years old and weighed about 170 lbs and couldn’t even run around the building without stopping. My first mile time was 13:19. By the end of the summer I had lost 11 lbs, 6% body fat and 5.75 inches. Since then I have continued to lose weight and have cut 2 1/2 minutes off my mile time. Last August I participated in my first 5K. Boot Camp has literally changed my life. It has given me a confidence that has spilled over into the rest of my life. I continue to take on things I thought I couldn’t do, like hand stands and box jumps. Robyn encourages me to keep upping my game. I love the camaraderie of working out with all the other women and encouraging each other. You can’t get that working out by yourself.” Janet
“Since I joined Front Range boot camp 1 year ago I am able to perform exercises that I wasn’t able to do without severe pain in my knees, hips and legs. My body was full of inflammation so severe that I was getting injection shots into my knee caps so I would be able to just walk and get around. I was taking antacids for my stomach problems, taking ibuprofen at night just to get my body to stop hurting so I could go to sleep. I have dedicated 2013 the year of “Finding My Strong”. I have registered for 3- 5k’s, 1 -10k, and a half marathon this year!!! Gerri
“I’ve been asked a few times recently what it is about bootcamp that keeps me coming back. My husband clearly knew this was different from other things I’ve tried because over a year later, I’m still doing it and not looking for my next new activity. The answer for me is that there is someone there keeping me accountable for showing up and for doing the work. There is someone there with a smile at dark o’thirty in the morning who makes me feel that they are glad I’m there, and i’m surrounded by other like-minded women working hard to get the job done, laughing along the way. It is the best of both worlds: big gyms lead to too much anonymity and some small studio settings lead to people feeling they don’t quite fit in. At bootcamp, we all fit in and we enjoy the company”. Karen
“Recently one of my students came up to me and said “Miss Sandy, I just love to hug you, you are warm, big and squishy just like my pillow. What was meant to be a great compliment from a 6 year old really hit me hard. I knew I had to do something. Robyn took the time to get to know us, and made us feel sooo welcome, even though I was out of shape, clumsy, and overweight. The other women in the class are also very encouraging. They welcome new members and encourage each other. Robyn even contacts you if you don’t show up! Sandy
“I have been attending Front Range Boot Camp since July 2010. Before that, I wasn’t much of a regular exerciser. I never ever thought of using the word “fun” and “exercise” in the same sentence. I knew the importance of regular exercise, but I never could stick with it. I found gyms to be VERY boring, and didn’t feel coordinated enough to do exercise classes.
After the first boot camp class though I knew this was something different. Not only are the exercises different, but the variety of workouts are awesome. And yes, It is Fun! Hard work, but Fun! The support you get from Robyn is amazing. Not only do I feel like I have a personal trainer, but a friend too. She really knows how to motivate you to keep you going, and knows when to push you to work harder. Physically I am MUCH stronger, I have a ton more energy, and am a happier person all around. My husband and I get along better, and he tells me how proud he is of me all the time!” Patty
“I started not being able to do a single sit-up but I kept trying until I got them. I can now do 50 sit-ups in a minute. My Kettle bell (KB) swings have gone from a 9lb KB to a 36lb. I could not run one full lap around the building without stopping now I can run a mile in 8:30. I am not a distance runner so this is a big mental deal for me…. I am a sprinter and jumper! It took me almost 6 months to get a single double under. My record on double unders is 33. Push-ups were pathetic worming types that barely reached 5 in a row on my knees –now I can do 20.
For me Boot Camp is more than just the workouts. It is about the people. At a regular gym you can go weeks without ever knowing a single person or seeing the same person twice. We see the same people every week and everyone is supportive. It is always fun to come to class to see how my friends are doing”. Sara
“Originally I joined with several friends hoping that they would keep me attending on a regular basis. I quickly learned that it didn’t matter if my friends were attending because everyone is so incredibly kind.
When I started, it was difficult for me to do almost everything. I started out only being able to do 3 pull-ups on the ladder at a time and I can now do up to 15 without quitting. I took a minute off of my mile between the first and second time I ran it. The other day I ran the 200 meter without stopping to walk part of the way. I can now jump rope without an extra step and can finally do a lunge without my knees bothering me. Every session I attend I accomplish something else I didn’t believe I could do.
I am so excited to continue with this program. I just feel like a new person. One of the things I really appreciate is how great all the members of the boot camp are. They help you believe in yourself and are so supportive. Most of all I want to thank you. You modify exercises to meet my needs and then push me forward when you know I can handle it. I just can’t thank you enough for what you have done to help me and I am looking forward to the future me!” Pam
“Although I am new to Robyn’s boot camp, I have tried others, and like Robyn’s the best. Her workouts are different each time I have come and they are VERY CHALLENGING for a regular girl like me (50 year old teacher in fair shape carrying around 20 extra pounds!). Her camp is full of all shapes and sizes of women and it’s FUN! She is very personable and inspires me with positive and encouraging comments. She’s a beast and it makes me think I, too, can be a beast someday”. Trish
“I have never been this motivated about working out. Robyn you are truly a lifesaver. I may cuss, cry & say I can’t do this but you know better & your encouraging words have made me realize I can do this. Thank you for being such an awesome woman! Also all the women at Front Range Bootcamp you ROCK! Kelly
Tammy lost 120# before coming to boot camp in May. Since then she has lost another 10# and 3% body fat. “The camaraderie of these amazing women, the support the encouragement, and friendship has changed my life. I love being able to know that every day I can go and spend an hour on myself. To work hard and enjoy doing things I thought I could never do. You will never regret being a part of this amazing experience. Thank you Robyn! I love you!” Tammy
“I am not sure how often people tell you this but THANK YOU! I say this for so many reasons.
1 – Thanks for making class so challenging. 2 – Thanks for making me want to come back. 3 – Thanks for the smiles and the laughter. 4 – Thanks for the breathing hard and sore muscles. 5 – Thanks for the body and mind changes. 6 – Thanks for the attitude adjustment. 7 – Thanks for the friendship”. Christie
“Boot camp for me is an inner challenge with myself, and a trainer who is always there to ensure I am doing every single move the right way, so that I am building my core correctly. Boot camp has NEVER been the same routine, I know I am working out different muscles every time. Robyn is fantastic, she is always there to work me through the tough times. My trainer cares and it shows”. Bad Ass Ronnie
I think that Front Range Boot camp is different from others out there because it is personal, and has a family feel. Everyone encourages you to do your best, while receiving personal attention from Robyn. If you fall off the routine, Robyn will not let you go. She always keeps in contact and will do her best to get you back in the gym. I also love that every day is new and each workout can benefit all fitness levels. The thing that sets Front Range apart is that all of the workouts can benefit all fitness levels. A beginner can work out with the best of the best and still be successful! Vanessa
“These are real women – moms, 9 to 5ers, business owners, athletes, couch potatoes, younger, older – all working together to achieve a personal goal. We do the same workouts, but at our own abilities (28 KB vs. 9 KB for example) with the best coach in the world “gently” reminding us that we can do more, move faster, lift heavier, be stronger. I’ve have never walked into the same workout twice, so the variety holds my interest and my muscles work harder and better from the “what’s this!” aspect. If I had to describe in one sentence to my friends: “There is a stronger person inside of me, and boot camp brings her out”. Amber
“Front Range Bootcamp is a completely different way to work out. I love the camaraderie that I get from women of all ages. Each and everyday at bootcamp has a new and exciting challenge to complete. I always leave with a feeling of accomplishment and that I just achieved the most challenging workout to date. Normal gyms are just a place to get some cardio in, lift some weights because you have to to, and a check off on the do-to-list. Bootcamp is more than that, it makes me energized to come so that I can work on the strong woman that I am becoming more and more of each day. Robyn is the reason this bootcamp is successful. She always pushes us to our personal best and has our personal interest at heart. Once I feel like I “know what I’m doing”, Robyn pushes me to the next level with my intensity and comfort. That is exactly why I see a difference in my body, my self esteem, and overall happiness. A normal gym never did anything like this for me and that is why I go to Front Range Bootcamp each week.” Mandi
“6 years, well 3 months shy, I’ve been coming to this boot camp!! To me, its money well spent: it keeps me physically and mentally fit, and I’m part of a community that wants the same thing. The types of different workouts and the supportive environment are what keep me coming back.” Vic
“What sets FRBC apart? It’s the positive energy that comes from Robyn, and the “family” of women that get their rear ends kicked day after day. I’m so inspired and motivated by Robyn and the other members, especially the women in their 50′s and 60′s. The message that comes through during every workout is that we are STRONG women who should be proud of ourselves for working so hard. Robyn consistently reminds us of how we are improving the quality of our lives with every rep. I have done other workouts and another boot camp, but this, by far, is the most challenging workout and the most motivational environment. I keep coming back because I’m constantly intrigued by the crazy combinations of workouts that come from that mad scientist brain of hers, and the inspiring, REAL women that have committed themselves to being better. In just 5 weeks, I feel stronger than I’ve felt in 10 years, and I’m only getting better. I am getting back in touch with my inner tomboy. She was a force to be reckoned with, and I missed her. FRBC is, in one sentence, “The perfect combination of butt kicking, endorphins, and estrogen accompanied by a soundtrack of great laughter and true friendship.” Bethany
“Community – Building, Ass-kicking, Life – Changing” Kristen
“For me, honestly, boot camp has changed my life. You have a whole new group of friends, my body has changed completely, I am in better shape than I was ever in my whole life, and I really think if I didn’t go there every day I would really miss it”. Lynn
