Best Body Bootcamp and Elliptical Time


Another round of Best Body Bootcamp is coming to an end today.  Just like the last round, I got great workouts from Tina each week.  I love how all my muscles get worked during each workout, and the differences that I see in my body.

One of the greatest things about the challenge (at least for me) are the two personal goals Tina asks us to make each week.  For this round of the challenge some of my goals have been making sure to drink water all day long, stretching for 15 min each day, journaling my food intake each day (keeping track of protein and calories), getting to bed by 10:30 pm, only 2 cups of coffee each day, and eating 6 servings of fruit/veggies each day.  I find that these goals make me feel better both from the health and personal stand points.


The next round of Best Body Bootcamp starts back up on April 1st.  Guess who will sign up again?  Yup that’s right…I will. I’m totally in love with Tina’s workouts, and I’m already excited about all the new workouts Tina will have for us!  Registration will open on March 4th for the next round of Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp, and I highly suggest you sign up too.

It is only $25, and you get great workouts for every week!! Where can you go wrong? Not only do you get 8 weeks worth of amazing workouts you can do at home…you get huge cash prizes! At the end of the 8 weeks there will be five $1000 cash prizes! Then each week there will be a $100 cash prize! The prizes are determined/based on your consistency and commitment to staying active and achieving personal health and fitness goals of your choosing. This is NOT about who loses the most weight/inches or looks “the best” in progress photos. It IS about staying committed to better choices and habits, challenging yourself, and making a lifestyle change for the better.

Here is an overview of how the program works:

  • Every two weeks, Tina emails everyone in the group new workouts with detailed instructions and links to online videos to watch in case you’re unsure about how to do certain exercises. Tina also offers modifications of each exercise in case you need an easier version of the exercise or a harder version of the exercise. About 90% of the workouts can be done in the comfort of your own home using free weights and stability balls. If it is an exercise that calls for a machine at the gym, Tina gives you an at-home version of the exercise in case you cannot go to the gym.

What do you look for in a workout or workout program?

Today I’m doing my Best Body Bootcamp workout, teaching a Spinning class, and doing the elliptical workout below.  This is an elliptical workout I had in my 2007 fitness note book…I have many notebooks.  I’m using it for my warm-up!  Remember to stretch when you are done!

The GoFit Gals

I reciently got the chance to interview the GoFit Gals, and ask them about their new health and fitness program they have started.  I love their slogan “Eat Clean and Train Dirty,” and  I so need a t-shirt with that saying on it too!!

Both PJ and Risse were beyond sweet and helpful for this interview, and I know they are the same way with all of their clients.  Check these ladies out and all that they have to offer you!

1. Who is your nutrition and workout program geared towards? Those wanting to lose weight, those who are looking to maintain their weight and become stronger, or both? What can those who are looking to maintain and get stronger expect?

Our online fitness & nutrition program is geared towards anyone who is wanting to get healthy. Whether you have weight to lose, habits to change or are looking for some new clean recipes & workout ideas – this program is built for anyone! From our program you can expect short workouts, but they aren’t sissy. They’re meant to burn the most amount of calories in the least amount of time. You can also expect tasty recipes that are easy to make and will leave you full and wanting more!

2. What kind of workouts do you put together? Are they workouts you can do at home, the gym, or both?

We create a variety of workouts from strength, to HIIT and everything in between. The workouts are designed so you can do them at home (or the gym) and very little equipment is needed.

3. How much cardio and strength training do you have your program members doing each week?

We have you being active 5-6 days a week for 30-45 minutes.

4 What kind of nutrition do you focus on for your eating plans? Are there plans for vegetarians or vegans?

Our nutrition is based on food-combining, timing of day and keeping you full. It is “clean-eating” with easy to create recipes. Currently we have our regular nutrition plan but will be releasing a gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan option as well.


5. What do you want people to take away from your program?

We want them to learn that they can change their bodies and their habits. We set our programs up so anyone can be successful, you just have to give it a go and we’re here to cheer you on the whole way!

6. Right now you have your Skinny Jeans Challenge. Do you have any other free challenges planned for this year?

Yes! We run free challenges several times a year with great prizes from amazing sponsors. We do this to help keep you motivated! Our next challenge will be announced soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

7. What kind of support can those looking to sign up from your program expect?

You get full support! Consider us your personal trainer, nutritionist, and cheerleaders! We are completely accessible through all our social media accounts and e-mails because we want each one of you to succeed!

8. What are your favorite kinds of workouts?

We are both busy so we love workouts that are short but will get the job done right. We are no joke and take your health seriously.

9. What motivated you to start Go Fit Gals?

We started Go Fit Gals because of a hole in the market. We saw people trying programs but none offered a great mix of workouts and nutrition that was scientifically based, easy to follow and provides all the tools to set you up for success.

 10. Who inspires you?

We are inspired by people who try their hardest and give it all they’ve got. We’re inspired by our community as they set out to take care of their bodies and change their unhealthy habits into healthy ones.
