Sir, I am a police officer in southern California and I love your program, its the best thing that I’ve ever come across.

Thank you so much. I also wanted to let you know that I am on your site quite often and have used your MEBB program to much success. It has really helped me increase my strength and fitness which is very important in my job as a firefighter.

Procrastination is one of my more practiced habits, albeit not something I am proud of. Getting my rear in gear concerning personal health and fitness had been something I put off way too long. I am sure like many others, I always thought tomorrow will be the day, or when the weather warms up, or after I lose a couple pounds and there were plenty of excuses and that is exactly what they are excuses.
During a round last summer with a good friend, I made a comment about his improved posture, attitude and stamina. He filled me on this new morning Bootcamp workout he was attending and how it had changed his views on fitness and traditional workout routines. A few weeks later I had the great fortune to meet this ‚Boot Camp guy, Coach Rut on the golf course which is one of few places where a persons true colors shine through. I inquired about the program and expressed some interest in attending although I fell back into the old excuse routine.
I found it interesting at no time after our initial conversation did Coach Rut inquire if I was still interested?, when was I going to start?, etc. Then I realized, he wasn’t in the business of recruiting people, he was in the business of helping people. You ultimately are the one who has to make the decision to get it done. Family and friends may show their support but you are the one getting up at 0500 hours to get your game face on and ready for the next fanny waxin coming your way.
It’s been 6 months since that first Bootcamp WOD and it is hard to explain in words how my life has changed. I didn’t set specific goals because I trusted they would come with hard work and they have; 15 lbs less and 2 inches of my waist was great but the real benefits are an energy level explosion enabling me to get way more productivity out of each day. A whole new outlook on how food drives so many aspects of your life. A more positive, accepting outlook on family, friends, work. And most of all an appreciation of not only what it means to be healthy but to live healthy.
When the day begins with beating the alarm clock to the punch and jumping out of bed ready for Bootcamp, I know I am on the right track.

I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how impressed I am with my body’s response to your workouts. I mowed the yard last after I rowed and I was pushing the mower differently, using the muscles at the bottom of my butt that I am sure that I should have been using all of these years.

As expected the Advanced Template is super helpful, thanks for putting it together. We met briefly around Christmas when my wife and I were in town from Orange County,CA and dropped in your gym. We had a great workout and I now have a reason to look forward to visiting my mother in law. I really appreciate all the information you put out, it has definitely made me a better and smarter coach.

I‚’ve followed all your articles,blog and DVD’s‚ and I can’t tell you how inspiring they are.
Thank you so much and take care.
During the last 7 months at Bootcamp Fitness/CrossFit Kansas City I have lost 45 lbs. and achieved a level of strength and endurance that I thought I would never see again.

Hey, it was good to meet you at the Black Box Summit! We have been using your 3-day MEBB template for our clients with great success. After on-ramp we start our beginners off right away using MEBB. It’s very interesting to see people’s reactions to lifting. Most come to see us to get in good shape (not to lift heavy weights – so they say…). We tell them that this is just part of getting in good shape. Typically, the women love lifting weights after they are comfortable with the lift. It is very empowering. So we just wanted to say thanks again for providing your templates and expertise. They are making us look good and in return giving our clients GREAT results.
Now that I have been to some different gyms in other cities, I have realized Bootcampfitness KC / CrossFit Kansas City has the best coaches, best workout programming, best competition, and best overall attitude hands down over other Crossfit gyms anywhere. Keep it up, you are the best!

I wanted to take some time to thank you for your website and your DVD’s and all you do to educate and help the fitness community.
I’ve been training high school and college athletes, (both male and female) for over 15 years, some who are now in the professional ranks, along with adults who don’t consider themselves athletes. I’ve experienced just about all the training methods and fads over the years and found most ok for somethings but usually always missing a certain component.
However, combining the Max Effort Black Box with a Crossfit routine it appears all the bases are covered. I have seen tremendous gains in the people I have been training over the last year or so and credit a lot if not most of what I am seeing to your concepts and teachings.
I could go on and on but again, I would like to thank you for your site and all you do to help the fitness community.
