WHAT OUR BOOT CAMPERS SAY
Besides “Yes, sir. Thank you, sir. May I have another, sir?”
The JWFNS Boot Camp has given me more energy and more stamina, and I can't think of a better way to start the day. - James H.
I was quite anxious about being in a group and not being able to keep up. Much to my surprise, there were people there of all levels. The coaches gave great instruction and offered modifications for those who have limitations, and they showed advanced modifications for those who want to push a little harder. - Brenda W.
At first, I didn't know if I'd realistically be able to drag myself out of bed that early—never mind get my butt kicked! But after the first session of seeing the sun rise over the ocean (whilst getting my butt kicked), I was hooked. - Christine J.
The program is a must for anyone who needs motivation! There are all ages and fitness levels and the awesome coaches break us into groups of our choosing and vary the intensity so everyone has a comfort level. The oceanfront at sunrise is awesome, too! ~ Lisa C., Virginia Beach
I love watching the sunrise in the morning while working out! The JWFNS Boot Camp classes are motivating and fun at the same time. ~ Sara W., Virginia Beach
