Created and taught by Jason B. Morgan ("Sarge"), a certified Personal Trainer, Children's Fitness Specialist, and Iraq Combat Veteran. The Boot Kamp program offers a unique, stimulating atmosphere for children to get active.
Boot Kamp is designed for non-athletic children, and encourages them to get away from "techno-temptations" such as computers and video games.
Utilizing actual military Physical Training (PT) drills, along with muscle recognition, class participants not only learn how to exercise, but also proper form and the muscles involved. The class also learns nutrition tips and the proper way to read a nutrition label.
The 60 minute class utilizes the first 30 minutes for exercise and education, and the last 30 minutes is "game time".
The class is almost never the same twice-from traditional games such as soccer, baseball, and dodgeball to new creations "Infection", "Lifeline", and class favorite "The Gauntlet".
Parental feedback for this program has been positive-some responses Jason has received have been:
“Boot Kamp is a great program for our son; he’s always excited about what they’ve done and what they’ll do next time.”
“Boot Kamp is great! Finally my boys' are learning discipline, and the amazing thing is they love it.”
“I would like to thank Jason for taking time with my son, his attitude and outlook on exercise has changed. He even enjoys going on walks with his mom now.”
"Anyone within a 25 mile radius should bring their kids to it...it is AWESOME!"
Class instructor "Sarge" has watched the program grow from four children at its start to over 30 children at present. Participants especially like their Boot Kamp T-Shirt or Hat.
Boot Kamp is for children ages 6 - 11 and is $100.00 per child (ask about family discounts).
