Need to feel more confident, and really thrive physically?

You know you need to devote time to your health, and you want to get your "sexy" back...let us help.

If you are lacking confidence or worried about "fitting in", then this camp is a great place for you. We don't compete against each other here.  We work together and encourage one another.  We don't keep score on a whiteboard.  

About Boot Camp Pasadena

With over 23 years of training clients, thousands of sessions, reading tons of books, and learning from some of the best mentors, I've condensed down the best fat loss methods into these 45 minute fat-burning boot camp classes.

You'll learn how to lose fat properly, and how to keep it off.

I created this boot camp because I wanted to share a more "down to earth" way of exercising.  I didn't like the military style of other boot camps, with loud and obnoxious trainers in muscle shirts who are more concerned with how they look, rather than your goals.   

If you are overwhelmed and stressed out, but know that health should be a priority in your life, then this camp is for you.

What I've done here is to create a proven training system whereby we meet in small groups which focus on fat burning and toning.  Our focus is on exercises that work your whole body and core.  

Classes meet two or three times per week, Monday - Friday.  (No classes on Saturday or Sunday.) 

Morning camps are from 5:45 AM till 6:30 AM, and in the evenings we meet from 6:00 till 6:45 PM. Each class is 45 minutes long.  

When you join us, you are joining our "family".  Your fellow boot campers really care about your success.  They email each other, run after class, and do whatever they can to encourage each other.

Small Groups

Many boot camps and gyms in and around the Pasadena area have 30 to 40+ people per class.  One of the great things about this exclusive Boot Camp program is that each class is limited in size. This ensures that you get maximum attention from me, and the safest and most effective workout possible.

This is not a gym!

Smaller groups mean that you will receive personal attention.  I'm here to provide a little push, encouragement, and accountability.  I am 100% committed to seeing that you achieve your goals.

What Kind of Results Can You Expect?

This is a very common question, and one that is difficult to answer. Everyone is different. I've had some people lose 12 pounds in one camp, and one client lost almost 50 pounds in four weeks. Most clients begin to notice their clothes fitting better by the second week.

(I encourage you to browse through the testimonials to see and hear from real people about their results. Unlike some other sites, there are no miracle promises of "easy fat loss" etc..)

Who Should Take This Boot Camp, and Maybe More Importantly...Who Shouldn't?

Each boot camp has a certain feel to it.  One of the best compliments that I've received from a boot camper was how I "managed to attract such a number of really nice people, and that makes it fun to train".

This boot camp is made up of mostly women between the ages of 20-60, and most are looking to lose fat. We do have a few guys (many in the AM camp), but the majority of my clients are women. 

So if you are a woman who wants to lose fat, then I encourage you to give us a try.

If your goal is to get back in shape, lose fat, and feel better about yourself, then I encourage you to train with us.

Guys too.  If you are overweight and out of shape, then this might be a good choice.

If you don't like running, then this is a great place to be. (I haven't liked running since junior high school. I always thought that it was boring and a pain in the you know where.)  We do some sprints here and there, but no long distance running.  (Do you really need to pay someone to watch you run? I don't think so.)

"I've been thrilled with the changes in my body over these past weeks.  I've lost anywhere from 1.5 - 3.5 inches from my starting measurements (biggest change is my waist!).  I can't tell you the immense joy it's been to fit into clothes that have been just sitting in my closet for the past couple years.  Jeans, Coop, jeans!!  I can wear jeans without feeling super uncomfortable (from too much belly fat).  I sing your praises every time I put them on!"

 "I'm loving working out at "Boot Camp Pasadena". After only 3 weeks I'm noticing how toned my arms look. I've worked out with trainers, tried other boot camps, joined gyms...basically I've tried everything at least once, but this is the first time I see results this quickly and it's only 3 days a week!"   Wanda Colón, Actress and TV Host

"I just got back from my parents house, and they both noted that I am looking slimmer lately and...My weight has dropped a bit, about 3-4 pounds, and my clothes are fitting looser, which is kind of amazing because I'm not really doing much working out outside of the boot camp and sticking pretty close to paleo, which seems to be pretty sustainable for me so far.  I'm definitely signing up for the next session as well.
Thanks again Stephen! You're awesome!"

Who Shouldn't Sign Up...

If you need to compete with others, then this is not the place for you. We don't post scores or write your name on a whiteboard.

If you are looking to build bigger muscles like a bodybuilder, then this class is not for you.

If you are hoping for screaming, camouflage clothing, muscle shirts, biceps flexing, and microphone shouting, and video screens, then this is definitely not the right camp for you.
