We’re Winners & Best Body Bootcamp Round 2

by tinareale on May 1, 2012

Wooh, baby! I have quite a few winners to announce – for Best Body Bootcamp AND the NatureBox Giveaway. But, we’ll have to wait a bit on that.

First, I have to talk about something.

As you have surfed blog world, you likely heard that the Best Body Bootcamp I hosted ended this past week. We had eight amazing weeks full of challenges and triumphs. We had the chance to get to know and support one another through the private Facebook group and see just how far we could take our bodies.


I have loved hearing many of these women report that they already feel as though they won because they overcame themselves and accomplished truly phenomenal things.

What makes a winner?

Committing to goals and working hard day in and day out to achieve them.

Facing struggles down and, even when they get the best of us, rising again and again.

Pushing out of comfort zones and believing in yourself to do more.

Making the time for yourself – whether early morning, squeezed in at lunch, after the kids go to bed – and knowing you are worth that workout and healthy lifestyle.

Setting a good example for loved ones.

The perseverance. The consistency. The results of strength, health, improved race times…and, most importantly, happiness, energy, and self-respect.

I want to say a huge THANK YOU to each of the bootcamp participants, each of my clients, and each of YOU who read/comment/connect through this site. You all effect my life in such a positive way. You help me feel like a winner – to do what I love, to connect with inspiring people,  to motivate me towards my own personal goals. So, as cheesy as it sounds, I have to say we’re all winners and we’re all…

Now that we got the mush out of the way – let’s get to those winners!!!

Yayy for a second round of bootcamp!! My little daughter is here- 9 days old today- so I am really looking forward to tough, sweaty workouts and I know you’ll provide just that, Tina! :) From what I’ve read on the blogworld, your last bootcamp was a resounding success – congrats!! You are such a hard worker and you deserve your successes!

Congrats to everyone who won!

I’m thinking a good workout change up over the summer will be to get involved in Bootcamp Part 2!

24 Samantha May 2, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Would love an “End of Year – Battle Holiday Temptation” Boot Camp! I’m due with my 2nd child in August and that would be perfect timing for me to push myself after recovery :) Entirely selfish in this request, I know, but I’m sure others would be interested too! Please, please, please!

25 Tina May 3, 2012 at 1:30 pm

I definitely have something of the sort in mind. Either Nov/Dec or Dec/Jan :)

26 Samantha May 2, 2012 at 4:55 pm

To clairify my above comment – the months I would like are October / November or November / December! :)

27 Christina May 10, 2012 at 2:29 pm
