The hardest workout you will ever love...

My before and after pictures
for all the world to see.....how embarrassing!! The truth is I
didn't let Susan take a picture at the VERY beginning. I made her
wait about a month or two, so I could at least show my face again.
My brother introduced me to Susan and Destination Hard Body
Bootcamp, so for all of you that have an older brother you will
understand when I say I was hesitant in the beginning. I have
dieted all my life. I think my mom put me on my first diet when I
was around 14, that was in 1980! In her defense, my mom is 5'1" and
about 110, has never done any exercise in her life and she does not
like to sweat! So she tried to change what I was eating....good
luck! Everyone else around me eating what they wanted, why couldn't
I? Lot's of sad times ahead!
I have tried a lot of things through the years, but nothing like what I was about to come in contact with! My first day my stomach was in knots and I was very nervous. We got there and I could not even make it through the warm-up....discouragement! I felt 14 all over again. It is amazing how our body image ruins our lives! It is amazing how our brains stop our progress! I went home tired, sore, and sure I would not go back. I showered and was trying to get dressed when I realized I was passing over clothes in my closet because I knew they were too small and everything I tried to put on was snug...I hate that word...SNUG! I cried!
My brother called the next day making sure I was okay and to find out if I would pick him up for the next morning workout. At this point I could not even get off the toilet without the help of my bathroom counter! There was no way out, I tried, but he wouldn't let me. He had paid for my first month and he told me not to waste his money...he tricked me! Off we went the next morning. I was still nervous, still scared and still sore as hell! I made it through and even threw up, but that was 10 months ago. And NO, it still isn't easy! I still have my good and bad days! But, I never miss a workout and I never will. Destination Hard Body is a part of my life and I have made the commitment to myself. It works for ME! I don't look like America's image of the perfect woman and I never will! I look like me and I am proud!
This should not even be about me and my story because everyone is different. THIS is really about Susan Crescini! Not only has she brought me down 4 SIZES and lots of inches, she has also shown me how to be happy eating, exercising and living a positive life! This is not just a bootcamp, this woman is someone who really wants to see you work hard and succeed. She puts her all into what she does and she is there for you every step of the way, pushing you just enough to keep you on your toes. Don't get me wrong...you still have to do the work, but the harder you work the better it gets. I attend bootcamp 4 times a week and I take an ab class with her. I also train with her on my off days, this from the woman who couldn't make it through the warm up. I will be 45 in May and I can not wait! SUSAN CRESCINI and DESTINATION HARDBODY BOOTCAMP will change your life...one box jump, one wallball, one sprint, one suicide, and 100 pushups at a time! I can't add pullups yet, because I STILL can not even do ONE!!! I will do ONE by the end of the summer! STAY TUNED!
So if it is a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday morning...you will find me at Destination Hardbody with Susan Crescini! Come and work out with us...in 10 months you will never have to use the word SNUG again!

So my story goes something like
I've pretty much had a struggle with my weight my entire life. After year's of
yo-yo dieting I was finally able to shed a considerable amount of weight with
portion control and exercise. However I had reached a plateau and was getting a
little bored with my workout routine. I had been running and lifting weight's
and although I had made considerable progress I still had not reached my goal.
Then I heard about a bootcamp that was being run by Susan Cresini. I had met
Susan several years ago at a gym where she was an instructor at the time. I was
searching for some classes to take and tried one of hers. I was hooked!! She was
by far the best instructor that I had ever come across. I couldn't put my finger
on it, but she just had the "it" factor. She makes you want to try harder, push
yourself out of your comfort zone. She changed the way I felt about fitness and
gave me motivation to keep going.
So when I heard about the bootcamp she was doing, I was in!
And change me it did. Within the first 2 month's, I had lost 14lbs and 4%
bodyfat and several inches. It was unlike any workout I had ever done. I was and
am hooked! The workout's are never the same and I have been doing the bootcamp
for 11 month's now. It has changed by body dramatically by doing exercises that
you would probably never do on your own. I truly believe Susan is a one of a
kind instructor and have referred several of my friends to try the bootcamp as
well. They all love it just as much as I do!!
