I started my first tour with the 805 Boot Camp earlier this year and I had no idea what to expect since I've never had much physical activity except briefly going to a gym a couple of times before losing interest/motivation and quitting. But I was 40+ years old overweight, out of shape and if I didn't do something it was just going to get worst. Randy and Sarita Shoemaker that own and operate the camp are the most energetic, enthusiastic, positive & encouraging people I've ever met. They will absolutely push you to 110% all the time! But they motivate you with positive encouragement. This positive attitude of Randy and Sarita's also spreads throughout the camp to all the other campers. On my 1st tour I felt welcomed by everyone and really liked the way everyone encouraged me and they still do. I am on my 4th tour and just signed up for my 5th tour I have made a lot of major improvements in my life & body and can't envision not being apart of this great family!

I was looking to tag along with my friends when they decided they needed a controlled, hold you accountable fitness group to help lose the pounds of several years of abuse and laziness. When I completed the very first day I was ready to quit because the abuse I had done to my body did not like the new exercise and meals program. What a wake up call for me, I think in many ways I was in worse shape then my friends and would have never known it without 805 Boot Camp. But by the end of my first week I was so impressed that I kept showing up that the fact that I could not sit down, stand up or even lie down without incredible strain to my soar angry muscles, did not make me want to quit any more.
I have had knee problem since I was eleven years old and have undergone three surgeries. Needless to say my life has been running free up until boot camp. I have never been able to run without excruciating pain stopping me within just a few steps. I have now completed two six week sessions with 805 Boot Camp and I can run. I have gone from a 13:41 minute mile to a 9:39 minuet mile in just twelve weeks of working on my leg strength and form to run pain free. I feel like a kid again, pre knee injury, I can not wait to strap on my running shoes and get outside.
As if the running results where not enough, 805 Boot Camp has also opened my eyes up to a new world of health. After 14 years of smoking religiously at over a pack a day for many of those years, I have quit. The support and encouragement was amazing. I found myself craving a cigarette and would just strap on my running shoes or my swim suit and get the craving out with some sweat. I guess you can say I have traded one craving for another.
805 Boot Camp has given me a new direction in life. For any one at any physical condition who is looking for a great group of friends who truly care for you and will do what ever it takes to make sure you meet your goals the 805 Boot Camp is for you!
