Fitness Boot Camps In San Diego

by Admin on June 3, 2011

One of the beautiful things about San Diego living is that the environment offers one of the best places in the world for outdoor fitness. Taking care of my health and maintaining a fitness routine is a passion of mine. A trend that is happening throughout San Diego are group workout programs known as “boot camps.” Some people confuse these with military boot camps. The term “boot camp” describes group workouts in a civilian environment that are lead by a trainer or instructor. Boot camps are a great way to get a great workout from a trainer or instructor for a price that is significantly lower than that of private sessions. Plus, it’s always comforting to know that others are sharing your pain! I wanted to tell my readers of a boot camp that I’m a part of called Gut Check Fitness. (Disclaimer: I don’t receive any type of compensation for promoting Gut Check Fitness. I just like to spread the word about gems like these within the San Diego community). Gut Check Fitness is led by the former Guinness Book of World Record holder for Most Fit Man in the World, Mr. Joe Decker. See his website for a brief bio and description: . In 2009 and 2010, Gut Check Fitness was voted the hardest and best boot camp in all of San Diego. The great thing about this group is its participants come in all shapes and sizes, and vary tremendously in age range and athletic ability. Some of Joe’s favorite saying’s: “Work hard, play harder!” and “Get busy living, or get busy dying”. We also participate in a variety of races and events from short 5k walks to ultra marathons, to the Death Race. Below is a video done by the local NBC affiliate of a few of our members who will be competing in the Death Race this June. Enjoy! -Rob
