Announcing the Spring 2010 6-Week Transformation Winners!
WOW! I’m a little sad actually, our 6-Week Spring Vacation Transformation has come to an but as a trainer my energy is completely renewed after being inspired by the hard work, blood (for some), sweat (for most of you), and tears (from some of you too). To see all the women push themselves through the physical and mental challenges has been a growing experience for me as a trainer as well.
The BP team met Wednesday and we spent over 4 hours reading through all the Top Internal Transformation responses (we had a top internal transformation winner and a top physical transformation winner). Amazing transformations is an understatement. We were laughing, crying, motivated, inspired, and humbled by the depth of the answers and reflections that many of the boot campers shared (they were all anonymous). We know that most of it was probably not easy or comfortable to uncover, but that is what we were looking for: a true internal transformation. And we saw it.
I am not exaggerating when I say that it was incredibly difficult to narrow down the results.
Though this was only 6 weeks, the lesson to take away from this is that we should all set short-term, achievable goals. Take your goals 2 weeks at a time, 1 day at a time, or within a realistic timeframe that sets you up to succeed.
Know that you are capable of so much more than you realize…and we’re not just talking about doing 200 jumping jacks or 50 burpees…the physical abilities are just a product of your mental and internal capability…sometimes we just need someone to kick us in the butt to help us realize our potential. I know Carrie and Jessyca would agree that we hope we are able to help you realize your potential – and not just physically, but in every aspect of your life.
We hope you that each boot camper learned something about herself during these last 6 weeks of boot camp…learning about yourself is a lifelong journey. You should never stop striving to learn more about who you are, your strengths, your weaknesses, and that YOU have the power to control your destiny!
So, without further ado, here are our 6-Week Spring Vacation Tranformation Winners and the winners of the “Golden Dumbbell Award”…and a FREE YEAR OF BOOT CAMP!
Here’s the video from Robbinsville…and you might catch more than a few of the boot campers with tears!!
Top Physical Transformation Award:
Robbinsville: Lynn Schulke!
Since September she has lost 10.2% body fat (HUGE!) and lost 5.25 inches in just the last 6 weeks alone! AND – she’s training for her first half marathon (she’s 55 by the way!! and she never was a “runner” before)
(check out her before and after picture http://www.bodyprojectbootcamp.com/ …and she looks even better now!)
Crosswicks: Heather Cheesman!
Heather lost 3.5% body fat in the 6 weeks and 4.5 inches (she’s one of our most dedicated boot campers!)…she’s also graciously given 6 months of her free year to her good friend, Rita Bergen. She believes so much in the program she always wants to share the experience with those she cares about – so inspiring!
Top Internal Transformation (and a few of the many inspiring snippets from their responses)
Robbinsville: Beth Robbins!
“…I really wasn’t convinced of the whole “jounal keeping, interal” thing…” Then it happened: I crashed into my “proverbial” brick wall…had a mini meltdown…triggered by cardio (when we did 200 jumping jacks and 3 minutes of jump rope)…when something gets hard for me, I give up, quit on myself, it’s why I’ve never been able to stick with a weight loss program, exercise, or gym. Start, quit, fail. UNTIL NOW! I found my IDENTITY again. My “inner” athlete has emerged. If I had to sum up my entire boot camp experience so far in one word, and the impact and effect it has had on me I would go with PROFOUND. I’m in for the long haul…my journey continues….”
Crosswicks: Cindy Gallagher!
i wrote down everything – i think the journal is an excellent tool for me – i wrote what i ate, when i ate, portion size and also my thoughts and feelings as i progressed through this process / challenge. i utilized the journal to gain an understanding of my ‘relationship’ with food and how i feel about ME.. i also had an eye opening experience – i don’t know that i ever realized how negative i could be toward myself.
it is the final week of this challenge and i can say wholeheartedly that i remain committed to this process (i have no intention of stopping) i GET that the nutrition and exercise choices i made over the last 5 weeks are choices i will continue to make. i have learned that i DO have what it takes to be the best me i can be – i feel that i am in this for my total mind/body/spirit. i have what it takes and i WILL and i CAN and I AM!!! it is a wonderful acheivement!
so in closing – i feel that what i have truly learned in this process is that I AM worth the time i put into me and i am committed to continue to put that time into me!! WATCH OUT HERE I AM!!!!
CONGRATULATIONS TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU WHO COMMITTED TO YOU FOR THE LAST 6 WEEKS (and beyond). You should be so proud of yourselves!
Forever committed to your success,
Lindsay & the Body Project Team
