When you ask anyone in the fitness industry what is takes to get results you’ll likely get the same old answer diet and exercise. At Burn Boot Camp they know there is so much more that goes into it than just eating right and running on a treadmill. It takes blood, sweat and tears it takes to reach your goals.

There are five Pillars that make up the Burn Boot Camp’s Philosophy

Mindset – To change the body, you must first change the mind. During our Burn Boot Camp “Focus Meetings”, you’ll be able to get personal with your trainer and address the obstacles that have hindered your personal growth in the past.

Whole food nutrition – You can’t out-train your diet. There are no cookie cutter meal plan recommendations at Burn. As a very results-oriented program, they will help you balance your nutrition habits to make eating healthy and feeling great realistic and achievable.

Burst training – The best way on the Planet to burn body fat is known as Burst Training. These high intensity intervals will leave your body eating away at fat cells for up to 72 hours after their completion. This is called the, “metabolic effect” and is a scientific approach to getting you lean, toned, and athletic in no time.

Strength training – Building lean muscle through hypertrophic strength training allows your body to burn more calories at rest, shape your physique, and ultimately keep that unwanted body fat off! Burn’s outside-the-box strength training protocols focus on empowering you to complete the most common desired performance goals.

Community – Burn women are a group of like-minded people who go through similar ups and downs of life. There are no judgments, no negativity, and no stopping you from being successful. Burn creates lasting friendships that ultimately create incredible accountability, which leads to results. They have expanded our community to include men as well, certain camp times are for ladies only and some are co-ed.
