Boot-Camp Diva

As a women in my forties, I have with much disappointment,  come to the realization that  carrying a basket through Safeway or walking from the upper parking lot down the stairs to the Boat Shed , is not exercise.  I found myself searching for a place that I could, without judgement, get in some real exercise on a regular basis.  I discovered Carmel,  at Boot Camp Diva.

Carmel has created a safe and fun environment for women, of all shapes and sizes,  to get a thoughtfully planned workout.  Classes are offered at a variety of times throughout the week. She also offers some on-line workout options and uses social media for encouragement and group discussion.  Workouts are roughly 45 minutes long and are a mix of cardio and resistance training, with a hint of cross fit.  No need to feel intimidated when she introduces a new exercise,  she gently corrects and encourages you to push on.  She’s found a home downtown and created a fun and inviting studio space.  About once a quarter she hosts a challenge where you have the opportunity to ramp it up a notch, be part of a team and there is often a meal plan provided.

Boot camp has been a great addition to my week and helps to offset, a least a little, my regular glass of wine or the occasional sleeve of thin mints.

She is located downtown near Kitsap Bank and the post office.
