The Results Are In!

Seven of the 15 Bootcampers were tracking their weight and trying to achieve specific goals by the end of this session. These steadfast 7 lost a total of 34 pounds and 18 inches, and an impressive 13.3% body fat! That's a lot less flab for the coming swimsuit season, better health, and better energy. Way to go Bootcampers, and keep up the good work!

Bootcampers Go Hiking!

Well after a brief parking lot duel about whether to take the Rim of the Gap trail or the Ivestor Gap/Art Loeb Trail, we opted for the latter and took off for the Parkway and Black Balsam parking area with 5 bootcampers, one stray hiker and my Lab, Lyla.  It was a glorious day after we rose out of the clouds and took off. 

The Ivestor Gap trail is a high elevation hike that makes you feel as if you're on the "top of the world!" As hardy bootcampers and Type A personalities, we finished the hike in record time, enjoying a quick lunch and photo shots along the way. What a fun way to work out!

After the hike, one car raced back to Asheville to catch the Masters, and the other mosied down to Mile Marker 417 and a short hike to Skinny Dip Falls (with our clothes on!). Lyla had a refreshing swim and we soaked our feet.  Naps were taken on the ride home by all but me, the driver, who was still enjoying the views and thirteen tunnels!
