Hello and Welcome to Boot Camp Challenge® for the Philadelphia area!
My name is John Essel. I am a nationally certified Personal Trainer through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and a nationally certified Group Exercise Trainer through Aerobics and Fitness Association of America® (AFAA). In addition, I hold a certification in Johnny G® Spin, Less Mills® Body Pump® and in Muscle Confusion.
In 2013, Marisa Finnell joined my team as a trainer for Boot Camp Challenge® Philadelphia. Marisa is a nationally certified Group Exercise Trainer through Aerobics and Fitness Association of America® (AFAA). In addition, she holds a certification in Mad Dogg Athletics Spin®. Marisa also supports her local community by sponsoring HealthyKidsRunning® and teaching Bootcamp in the park for her local park district.
In 2015 Chrissy Higgins joined my Boot Camp Challenge® team as a trainer in the Philadelphia area. Chrissy is a nationally certified Group Fitness trainer through FITOUR®. Since 2009, she has been an avid participant in our program, which led to her becoming a certified Boot Camp Challenge® Drill Instructor. She wants to share her passion for health and wellness and believes our program is the best way to do so! Her Boot Camp Challenge® class focuses on the "beginner" camper, but is suited for all fitness levels.
Boot Camp Challenge® is not just a workout regime. It is a health and wellness program that incorporates pre and post assessments, nutrition awareness, muscle confusion style training and creates a community of support and encouragement. For those of you who have ordered at-home workout DVDs that never see the light of day or the latest workout equipment that turns into an expensive clothes rack come on out and join the camp and let us help you achieve your wellness goals!
The camp is six weeks in length. An Assessment is conducted at the beginning of the camp to determine your initial fitness level and for a baseline measurement. A final Assessment is conducted again at the end of the 6 week camp to measure your improvement. The nutrition log will be based on your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and will raise your awareness of how you are fueling your body. The workouts vary and no two workouts are the same. The workouts consist of a warm-up run for 10 minutes, then we utilize your own body weight for the strength training exercises. Some workouts are partner or team based and others you will work individually. You will work your upper body, lower body and core muscles in all workouts.
This program has enjoyed a 100% success rate when all the facets of the program are adhered to. It’s that simple, it has always been that simple. Do the work, reap the benefits. Change the shape of your body and change the shape of your life. No more excuses. Invest in yourself. Do it now!
All you need is to bring a bottle of water, exercise or yoga mat, towel for the sweat and a great attitude!
We are proud to announce that Johnny G has been named "TRAINER OF THE YEAR" by the National MS Society Delaware Valley Chapter. Congratulations. Your service reflects great credit upon yourself and the Boot Camp Challenge program
