“I have lost inches, weight and better yet, feel stronger and leaner!”

When my sister approached me and asked if I wanted to go to a “kettle bell” workout, I had no idea what she was talking about let alone what we were in for.

After checking out the website www.tecumsehbootcamp.com, we were intrigued and wanted to learn more.

We decided to take Rob up on his “free trial” offer and embarked on our journey on Friday, August 14th, 2009. After filling out some paperwork, a basic lesson on how to swing the kettle bell, it wasn’t long before we worked up a sweat with the other Boot Campers. At the end of the grueling 30 minutes, my sister Elly knew this was for her. My self on the other hand, was still a bit skeptical. My sister signed up on the spot while I thought it over the weekend (which by the way, I had body parts hurt that I never knew I had). With a little persuasion, I decided to give it a try and on Monday, August 17th, 2009 we walked in ready for our workout. What we didn’t expect, was how much fun we would have at the same time, and wanting more. I really enjoyed going to class with my sister, as we are competitive in nature and she was my incentive to work harder. We both work opposite shifts of each other and the chance to have almost 3 weeks of being together and encouraging (and laughing at) each other was something we often don’t have the opportunity to do.

We have both tried many other gyms in the past but with Punch Gym Boot Camp, 30 minutes goes by so fast, it hardly feels like a workout and is like having your own personal instructors encouraging you to do your best. We can tell you from experience; it is definitely a workout for any fitness level. You work at your own pace and gradually build up to heavier weights. Rob and Christine are great instructors and definitely inspirations to look up to.

My sister Elly decided to take time for herself after having her third child start school full time and continue working out, having noticed a change in her body and stamina. Elly having had upper back and neck troubles for many years of working as a nurse has commented on how much better she is feeling.

On day one, I couldn’t do a full sit-up or even one push-up (men’s style). By the end of the Boot Camp, I was completing the full 30 second rotation for both. I have lost inches, weight and better yet, feel stronger and leaner. I was feeling more confident with my body and proud of what I accomplished in only 4 weeks.

Unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict, I could not continue with Punch Gym. However, I will not hesitate to join again in the future and recommend it to anyone who wishes to lose weight/inches, gain a more leaner and healthier body. ~ Sincerely, Diana Roberts and Elly Funkenhauser (sisters)
