I just wrapped up my 2nd week of boot camp at D1 Sports Training. Don’t let the sports training fool you, I am not there because I’m an athlete, I’m not ( see my previous post here for proof). I’m here because I need to get in shape ( again, refer to post 1 for proof).

Have you ever worked out so hard you were certain you had to have lost a few pounds in that single work out? I have had a few of those days lately where I rushed home and was certain that the crazy workout had shaved off at least 1 or 2. This is not the case, BUT not to fear. What I’m learning at D1 and with my clothing is that it isn’t about pounds. It’s about inches.

Ladies, LISTEN! I’ve finished week 2 and I’m in the middle of week 3  and my clothes are fitting better! I’m firming up and I’m sore in places I didn’t even know existed. That has to be a good thing! The best part of this journey is I feel better. I feel strong and I’m proud that I’ve stepped outside of the box. In this case, I’ve jumped outside of the box. You will know what I mean when you try out D1.

What You Can Expect From a Class at D1

The biggest challenge of a D1 boot camp class is showing up for the first class. I was so scared and thought I would look like a fool. WRONG! There are people with various skill levels which includes mine ( wine drinking, cheese loving mom).

The class goes at a great pace. You do a fun warm up and then you are given a circuit of 5 or 6 exercises to do for 4 or 5 sets. It totally caters to my ADD because it’s always something different. See that picture? That’s me on the far right. I don’t look like I’m dying or anything! Yeah me. You will sweat, you will burn on average 450 calories per workout. That is awesome!! I wear a Fitbit and I burn between 410-457 per workout.

Once you start the boot camp, you will gain a little weight but lose inches.  YOU WANT THIS TO HAPPEN. This means you are converting fat to muscle. Muscle weighs more ladies. Once you have converted to muscle, WEIGHT LOSS! Don’t forget, THE MORE MUSCLE YOU HAVE, THE MORE CALORIES YOU BURN. I’m in the middle of week three, and it’s starting to happen!

I’m barreling through week 3 and I’m loving it. A side note, the trainers are easy on the eyes, incredibly helpful and I’ve made some new friends. I’ve also joined a professional soccer league, JUST KIDDING. I’m still in the wine drinking, cheese loving mom group thank you very much!

D1 is launching a MOM’S BOOTCAMP next week. It’s starting APRIL 3 at 9:30 am. This is a great opportunity to meet moms and be ready for tank tops and sundresses by Summer!

D1 is hooking MY719MOMS BIG TIME. If you follow the link below you can get the 4-week boot camp for FREE! Slots are filling up fast, though, so give it a try. I PROMISE you will love it! STAY TUNED FOR MY WEEK 3 REVIEW, I’M GOING TO TAKE THE PLUNGE AND POST PROGRESS PICTURES.

This is me 4 years ago. I was a size four. I felt fantastic. I’m not exactly sure what happened but this is me now. I suppose if I had to guess as to how I got so big it would boil down to wine, food, age and a bit of laziness, okay, a lot of laziness. When I finally realized I was 20 pounds heavier I freaked. What do I do now? I tried all of the things I had done before to lose weight, but something about being over 40 changed the game.


For the past year, I have literally used my child as a human shield whenever someone wants to take my picture. Typically I won’t let anyone take my picture because I can’t stand to see how I look. That is pathetic. I avoid situations where I have to see someone that hasn’t seen me since I packed on the pounds. I tell myself this is to protect them from the utter shock of my reverse transformation. This is just a little snapshot of where I was a week ago.

Two weeks ago I was approached by D1 Sports Training to share with my readers their upcoming boot camp for women. As I spoke with them about their program I had a bright idea, which I blurted out. “Why don’t I try your boot camp so I can give them a full picture of what it’s like,” I said. It seemed like a great idea when I was sitting at my desk in black leggings and an oversized shirt. After the meeting, I realized what I had done. It would take a week for me to muster up the courage to show up.

WEEK 1: D-Day

I show up to D1 terrified. I’m certain the next hour will be the definition of humiliation. I walk in hoping to keep a low profile, but that was not to be. This is a good thing. I walk in and everyone in the class greets me. It’s almost like a team really. I was a bit intimidated because most everyone appeared to be in good shape, but that’s a good thing right? I mean it proves this stuff works. Over the course of the next hour I did exercises I hadn’t done in years and some I had never done. The hour flew by and I was constantly encouraged by the participants, not in a poor slob kind of way, but in a way like, we are glad you are here and kudos to you for giving it your all. I must admit the multiple fist bumps made me feel great.

I left that first class knowing I had an uphill battle, but that this might actually work. I have gone for a week now, thus the week one title, duh. As I write, I am sore in places I didn’t even know muscles existed. It makes me feel great. Yesterday was my best day yet. That was my 5th day. I ran, I jumped hurdles, I swung weights and came close to death, but guess what, I’m going back today.

What is D1?

D1 is circuit-based training That consists of a 1-hour workout that includes:

 Total Body Metabolic Training

 Cardio Training

 Strength and Resistance Exercises

 Core, Balance, Flexibility, and Injury Prevention

 Emphasis on muscle tone, strength development, and weight loss where desired.


What that means is you aren’t just doing one thing, which is great for my ADD. The class follows this format:

12-15 minutes of dynamic warm-up

Rest Break

12-15 minutes of a performance circuit

Rest Break

12-15 minutes of a strength circuit

 Rest Break

 Remaining time is core and cool down

The best part: You burn at minimum 480 calories per class. 480 CALORIES!!!!!!
