3 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 11:11 am

Thanks so much!

4 wendy June 27, 2012 at 7:53 am

I’m going to do it!! Thanks!

5 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 11:11 am

Yay!!!! I hope you love it. :)

6 Jessica June 27, 2012 at 8:02 am

So excited for this again! I love how creative you get with the workouts!! I will be marathon training during this boot camp so hopefully this will keep me motivated to go to the gym for strength training! Thank you so much for putting this on again! :)

7 Christa June 27, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Ah! I’m marathon training, too! I’m so excited to have a strength regime to do so I don’t get lackadaisical in that department. Did you do the first round?

8 Jessica June 27, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Yes I did! I really loved the workouts. She may structure it different this time, but she gave us 2 weeks of workouts at a time (with videos!) and then there are weekly check ins through google docs (private).

Sometimes I felt like I was working out too much, because running 4 times a week and then having the weight/gym days 4-5 times a week was a lot, but she stresses to make it your own. So what I ended up doing was making double days on the days I did shorter runs. And when Friday’s workout looked like lots of legs, I would switch it with Monday’s workout to avoid heavy legs for my long run on Saturday! It worked out well.

I also love that she adds a lot of unique moves that I’ve never done before. Not sure the typical squats, lunges, bicep curls. I value the variety! Another thing I really liked was she varied the weight and reps. Some days were heavy weight, low rep and some the opposite. I tend to forget about that when I make up my own weight workout!

9 Madeline @ Food Fitness and Family June 27, 2012 at 8:20 am

CAN’T WAIT. So excited for round 2!

10 Melissa @ Live, Love, & Run June 27, 2012 at 8:20 am

Spreading the love, momma!

11 Heather June 27, 2012 at 8:34 am

so excited, hate that I missed last time!

12 Courtney June 27, 2012 at 8:56 am

So excited to do this again! How will it be different from last round?

13 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 11:13 am

The workouts will be different and there may not be weekly prizes from companies. I have to see what I put together after pulling so many resources for the initial bootcamp. The cash prize will still be there though for sure! :)

It will still be new workouts every 2 weeks and the same format overall, but completely different workout layouts to change things up.

14 Tara Burner June 27, 2012 at 9:00 am

spreading the word for ya :)

15 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 11:13 am

Thanks, Tara!

16 Kaitlin @4loveofcarrots June 27, 2012 at 9:15 am

17 Laura @ Mommy Run Fast June 27, 2012 at 9:18 am

Awesome! I missed it last time, so I think I’m gonna have to do it this time! I’ll spread the word. :}

18 Michelle June 27, 2012 at 9:30 am

20 Brittany (Healthy Slice of Life) June 27, 2012 at 10:00 am

Alright! Round two- whoop!!

21 Stephanie @ Athlete at Heart June 27, 2012 at 10:04 am

I’m registered! I’m so happy to have another chance since life got in the way last time. This time I’m going to tear it up!

22 Kirsten June 27, 2012 at 10:13 am

Just registered!!! I am so excited to join in this round. Can’t wait to see what you have planned!

23 Jennifer @ Healthy Wifestyles June 27, 2012 at 10:19 am

Perfect timing!! I was looking for a bootcamp to finish before my wedding, and the end date of the 16th is just before my wedding on the 22nd! So excited!

24 Gina June 27, 2012 at 10:36 am

I am thinking of signing up! Any previous attendees here that can provide some feedback?

25 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 11:14 am

I’m going to try to get a post together with some links to previous participants’ recaps to help out. Anyone else that wants to step in with a comment, feel free to as well!

26 Anna S June 27, 2012 at 11:54 am

I loved it! It was really a flexible plan, and I loved I could everything at home. Plus for that price you really can’t beat it.

27 Christa June 27, 2012 at 10:40 am

Oh yay! I’m sooooo excited for this since I missed the last round! Do we have to do before and after pictures or anything like that?

28 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 11:16 am

I provide a check in document but you can use whatever means of tracking progress as you want – you can even track it solely for yourself. No obligation to share anything you’re not comfortable with sharing with me. And whatever is shared is kept private.

29 Shanna, like Banana June 27, 2012 at 10:53 am

I’m totally doing this this time around. My body (after baby) is now ready for some real [email protected];)

30 Andrea June 27, 2012 at 11:42 am

Hi Tina!
I’ve heard great things about the first round and I really want to sign up this time!! Question- do the workouts take up all your normal workout time each week, or do you still have room to add in your own stuff too? I would like to keep up with some of my own strength routines and cardio stuff as well- is it doable?

31 Carly June 27, 2012 at 12:12 pm

How many days/week are you planning for (including strength and cardio)? How much of a time commitment per day? Thanks! I missed out last time for personal reasons, but I am quite interested in participating this time around!

32 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 3:12 pm

Hi Carly! The plan is laid out to be 5 days of workouts with about an hour per workout. There is a mix of cardio and strength (generally 4-5 days cardio of various lengths and 3 days typically of strength). I do give suggestions for those with limited time frames or who have other scheduling concerns. The plan is definitely meant to be flexible, while still effective. :)

33 Maria June 27, 2012 at 12:36 pm

So excited to join in on this round! I will be finishing up Fitnessista’s Summer Shape Up in one week, have a week at a beach, and once I get back, I’ll be able to start your Bootcamp! Perfect timing!

34 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 3:11 pm

That is perfect timing. :)

35 Sabrina @Work It Ms Jackson June 27, 2012 at 1:08 pm

YAY!!!! I’m so excited for this!

36 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats June 27, 2012 at 1:14 pm

ahh I’m so excited for you! Although a little sad I won’t be participating this time! It was pretty hard to keep up with during my half marathon training, so I think during my marathon training it would just be way too much!

37 Megan @ The Road to Skinny June 27, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Super excited that I can do this one since I’m not pregnant. Hopefully it’ll help me get the baby weight off! How long each day would the workouts take?

38 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 3:10 pm

The plan is laid out for 5 days of workouts at about an hour per workout. However, the plan is also meant to be flexible so I give suggestions for those with more limited time per day or limited days to workout or for those who want an extra workout.

39 Amy Ramos June 27, 2012 at 1:36 pm

YAY! I missed the first one and I am so happy to hear another is back!!

40 Carol @ Lucky Zucca June 27, 2012 at 1:42 pm

I’m really excited too!! And also interested in how it will be different from the last one. Love the workouts last time! I keep them in my workout folder!

41 Jillian @ sprinkle massacre June 27, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Ahhh Tina! I am starting to train for a half July 2nd through Sept 23rd, so it would be tough to incorporate the bootcamp. I’m bummed!

42 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 3:09 pm


43 @pluvk June 27, 2012 at 3:39 pm

Oh! I’m so excited! I really wanted to sign up the last time, but was unable to… (I think I was too late?) Anyway, I hope to join this time around!!

44 Sarah @ A Runners Heart June 27, 2012 at 4:43 pm

Yay!!! So excited you’re doing a round 2! I missed the first one, so I’m so excited your doing it again! I’ll be registering next paycheck! I will be doing half marathon training as well, but I’m excited to have some new things to do for strength training!!! :)

45 [email protected] June 27, 2012 at 4:57 pm

So exciting!! I know so many love it :) I just have training and so much teaching, that there is no way I could do it–but sounds awesome!

46 Kitty June 27, 2012 at 5:06 pm

How are the prized determined?? I guess I dont understand about checking in weekly.

47 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 7:50 pm

All participants that stay on track with their activity/workouts and weekly goals consistently (about 80% ratio) will be entered into the drawing for the prizes. This isn’t based on things like weight loss or body fat %, but on striving to live a healthier, balance, and more active lifestyle consistently.

48 Christine @ Love, Life, Surf June 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm

So excited that you’re doing a second round. I’m sad because I probably can’t participate yet (knee rehab) but hopefully you’ll do a round 3? Pretty please??

49 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 7:51 pm

Most definitely! I’m either planning a separate mini challenge for the holiday season and then BBB round 3 to start the new year…or 2 full rounds closer together for those time frames. BBB isn’t going anywhere!

50 Sara @ The Foodie Diaries June 27, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Ahhh I was hoping that you would have another Best Body Bootcamp!! I can’t wait to sign up :)

51 Michelle (Better with Berries) June 27, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Hey Tina! I have a question about the bootcamp – can most of the workouts be done at home, or adapted to do at home? I don’t have a gym membership so I was just wondering. Thanks!

52 tinareale June 27, 2012 at 7:52 pm

All workouts have adaptations for home workouts. I definitely want it available to anyone. On the FAQ page I have suggestions for basic equipment for home workouts (like dumbbells, stability ball).

53 Rachel @ Eat, Learn, Discover! June 27, 2012 at 10:04 pm

I’m so excited – I really want to join in for this round! At the moment I don’t have a gym membership for the summer OR *any* equipment save for an exercise mat. If I was to do all of the workouts at home, what is necessary to have?

54 tinareale June 28, 2012 at 6:42 am

The only thing required would be a set or two of dumbbells (preferably a lighter and more moderate/heavier weight options). I also recommend a stability ball and resistance bands (just the basic tubing, not necessarily the ones with handles) to get more variety for at home workouts, but it’s not required.

55 Liz (Little Bitty Bakes) June 27, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Woohoo! So glad you’re doing it again. I have a CRAZY summer ahead so I won’t be joining the fun this time — will spread the word though!

56 tinareale June 28, 2012 at 6:40 am

Thanks, Liz!

57 Lindsay @ FuelMyFamily June 27, 2012 at 10:16 pm

I heard such good things about round 1. I hope this fits into my summer schedule (traveling a lot so i dont know how my workouts will be effected)!

58 Charlotte June 27, 2012 at 10:27 pm

woooop!! Missed out on round one!! Looking forward to bootcamp round 2! :)

59 Charissa June 28, 2012 at 2:09 am

Too fun! I’m doing a challenge on my site right now too…it’s for the whole month of July having a smoothie a day! Such fun!

60 tinareale June 28, 2012 at 6:39 am

I saw that challenge. Looks yummy and so perfect for summer!

61 Lee June 28, 2012 at 8:05 am

I didn’t sign up last time because of half-marathon training, but I am definitely going to this go-around.

62 maria @ mim June 28, 2012 at 8:17 am

I’m excited TO SEE THIS! I missed out the first time around because I had a stress fracture, but I really want to sign up this time!

63 Shannon June 28, 2012 at 10:46 am

All signed up!! So excited!! Thank you!!!

64 Heather @ Better With Veggies June 28, 2012 at 12:10 pm

I’m spreading the word, really enjoyed round 1!! I even stole one of the exercises I learned for my athletes. :)

65 Danielle July 3, 2012 at 9:33 am

Hi Tina. I’ve read so much about your bootcamp and I can’t wait to try it. I was wondering how we will receive the workouts (email, or on the blog?), and most importantly, whether they will be printable. I have a hard time following along with workouts just using my phone at the gym because it always goes idle and the screen is small. Also, how early in the day are they posted? I am an early riser.


66 tinareale July 3, 2012 at 11:06 am

Hi Danielle!

The workouts are sent out via email to all members. The workouts are sent 2 weeks worth at a time and I always send them out at least 3-5 days in advance so everyone has a chance to review the workouts, get acquainted with them, plan ahead for their time, and ask questions if needed. I will likely send the workouts out both via Word Documents and shared as a virtual document online to make it easy access (and printable) for everyone whether using a Mac or PC. Hope this helps and feel free to let me know of any other questions or concerns. :)

67 Phoebe` July 7, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Hi, Tina!! I heard great things from the other bloggers and wana join!

The thing is, I’ll be on vacation from July 14-29. Is it okay if I miss a week of the camp? Should I start from week 1 on July 30 or join the group for week 2?


68 Christine July 27, 2012 at 10:56 am

I just found your blog and would have loved to sign up for this bootcamp. Will you have round 3 this year? Thanks!

69 tinareale July 27, 2012 at 11:29 am

Yes! This round ends in Sep, then I’ll take October off, then start back in Nov/Dec for the next round of BBB. Motivation for the holidays!
