As we all are most likely aware, the holiday season can be stressful to say the least! Despite all of our organizing, things don’t always go as planned do they? There were lots of Holiday workouts and challenges floating around last month so when Jen at Burpees For Breakfast offered to let me try out her Holiday Boot Camp for a few weeks, I “jumped” on it.
Jen (Burpees For Breakfast) is personal trainer and health & wellness coach who offers up both tailor made fitness plans and group boot camps. I participated in 2 weeks of her Pre-Holiday Boot Camp last month.
Each week, Jen will email participants the workouts for the upcoming week along with a link to a youtube video that demos some of the moves. She is a stickler for form, which I love and think is key. Here is a look at one of her youtube videos:
I initially thought it was a little overwhelming but as soon as I saw her demo each move and show exactly what she was looking for, it all made sense. I am a visual person when it comes to exercise and I appreciated seeing her demo each move specifically. You can find more videos on her Youtube channel.
The workouts in my 2 week trial were full body and most required no equipment at all. There is a nice mix of tabata and HITT style. To increase the intensity, you could add weights or sets to some of the moves. I was able to complete all the workouts in 20-25 min.
I believe that Jen’s workouts are appropriate for all fitness levels. Many are time based so that, depending on your current level, you can perform as many or as little reps each time. Also a great way to see you improvements. There were a few days that I did the workouts after running and did not want to jump or have impact. I was able to easily modify the moves to fit this.
If you are looking for some help with your exercise goals, participating in one of Jen’s Boot Camps is a great and economical way to get personal attention without the price tag of a traditional personal trainer. Her groups are priced very reasonably and vary depending on length. (weeks)
I loved Jen’s down to earth, bubbly personality. She is someone that seems real and that’s a plus for me in personal trainer.
Now that Jen has teamed up with Jill for their Inspired To Be Fit program they will also be offering weekly workouts, nutritional advice and fitness education. Those two are sure to be a powerhouse team!
