Long Island Xpress Boot Camps
Home of the only 35 minute fitness camp on LI
I started boot camp about 18 mos. ago. I am a certified fitness instructor and aside from teaching fitness classes for the last 18 years, I have been exercising my entire life. Until I began boot camp, I considered myself to be in great shape. In June 2009, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although it was in its early stages, I still opted for a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction. I underwent 2 surgeries - one in August 2009 and the other in November 2009. Fortunately, I recovered very quickly from both surgeries (due to the good physical condition that I was in) and was back to teaching classes within a short time after both surgeries. Unfortunately, though, I had lost great deal of chest strength from the surgeries. Doing a full push-up was quite a challenge for me. But I was determined to get my strength back. Boot camp has been instrumental in not only improving my chest strength but improving my overall fitness level as well. My running pace has improved (I went from a 10.0 min/mile pace to 8.50), my bike riding is stronger, and my stamina has increased. Thanks to boot camp, at 48 years old I am in the best physical condition of my life!
