    What motivates me to work out is to feel good both mentally and physically. Let’s face it, what person doesn’t want to physically look and feel their best. Whether its to look good in that dress for Friday night on Washington street or to have the energy to make it through the work day, working out def. effects the physical aspect. I also am motivated by the mental aspect of working out. After a long day at work, working out can clear the brain and bring stress levels down. I also use working out as a way to make myself mentally tough, not to back away from the challenge, but to push through on hard days.

    What motivates me to work out is to be more healthy overall. I want to lose weight and not have all the health issues that come with being overweight. Truly going to the bombshell bootcamp and seeing all the extremely fit people there and the awesome encouragement from the trainers keeps me motivated!!!! I do not want to be last anymore!

  • Meghan September 28, 2012  

    What motivates me is seeing healthy people. People who are vibrant and enjoying some of the not so great things in life while still remaining healthy and fit..

  • JoJo September 28, 2012  

    1. Feeling energized, young, and confident.
    2. Nailing new, difficult moves.
    3. Being a good role model and inspiring others.

  • Margaret September 28, 2012  

    Feeling good when I’m in shape and being able to eat good food is what motivates me to work out! Having fun with friends while doing it is a bonus!

  • Lori September 28, 2012  

    You motivate me! Your dedication, hard work, constant effort, kindness and passion for helping others achieve their goals as well is inspiring!!

  • Nicole Feehery September 28, 2012  

    My ADHD motivates me to work out- especially trail running. I hate taking my adderall and running helps clear all the 50,000 thoughts running through my mind at once. It also helps naturally release the insane amount of energy I have ALL THE TIME!!! I am also motivated to work out when I see healthy elderly people still able to move and groove their bodies because they have been exercising their whole lives- that’s what I want to be like! Lastly- I love motivating others to change to, or continue leading a healthy lifestyle. Woohoo!

  • Leah September 29, 2012  

    I love the feeling of accomplishing something new!

    When the body is healthy, the mind is also healthier. I like keeping generally fit. It lowers stress levels and gives me energy. I also really enjoy outdoor sports, so Bombshell Bootcamp gets me outside to enjoy some sunshine, and keeps me at a fitness level where I can be in good shape for SCUBA or Ski vacations and bike riding. Not to mention working out helps me look sexier! 😉

  • Natalia Z October 1, 2012  

    Through the course of a number of sessions with Bombshell Bootcamp, I realized that I respond really well to mini goals and I’m much much more competitive than I ever thought I was. I started working out more because I wanted to loose weight, but now, it’s all about hitting those goals I’ve set up. Be it running at least 10 miles a week in preparation of my first half-marathon, or pumping out 50-100 pushups/squats/plyo jumps/”you name it” here and there to get closer to my monthly Thousands challenge on SocialWorkout. Whatever it takes to be closer to that #1 spot. I set out on this journey to become the person that I always pictured myself to be in my mind, but didn’t see in the mirror. Now I can see it as reality and that’s what keeps me going. To be healthy, fit, but most of all have lots of fun doing it!

  • Lindsay Carlisle October 1, 2012  

    Getting rid of some stress and loosing weight are my two top motivators to get to a bootcamp but once I’m there you definitely motivate me to push my self!

  • Mandy Arriaga October 2, 2012  

    What make me want to work out is I love the feeling afterward, Its where I can check out from the world and my mind some how clears the stress away.

  • Peyton October 2, 2012  

    What motivates to me to push through those gosh awful planks is being able to see the muscle definition in my abs and being able to parade around in a bikini and feeling confident. On a serious note there were several days that I was emotionally drained from work and had to force myself to go to bootcamp, but at the end I always felt 100 times better and the workout turned my day around.

    What motivates me to get back into working out is being able to pinch my fat roll together and making a face with it because it’s been too long since I have seen Cari… it’s a frowny face right now because nobody likes having it around. I promise I will be back ASAP

  • Sarah F October 2, 2012  

    Getting in shape for my wedding day motivates me!

  • Teri October 2, 2012  

    I like staying fit and challenging myself. I love the feeling after a good workout. If I have a good workout routine, I don’t feel as guilty when I eat some not so great things.

  • Sonia October 2, 2012  

    What motivates me is that, “I DID THIS, I CAN DO ANYTHING I SET MY MIND TO,” great energizing feeling after each workout. That energizing feeling keeps me looking forward to the next workout and what more I can accomplish. Staying healthy and fit overall and having Cari and Carrie as trainers helps push through those burpies!!

  • Ivori October 2, 2012  

    I am motivated to stay fit because I once weighed in at 275 pounds ! I am now at 144 pounds and overwhelmed that I have made my Weight Loss Journey a Success ! I also do NOT want to be old when I’m 40; I plan on living my Life to the fullest, and in order to do that, I need my health.

    A couple of years ago, I was 38 years old with a daughter in high school. I knew I was overweight, but I wasn’t motivated to do anything about it. I was depressed and just coming out of a divorce. Then my 17 yo daughter went to the doctor and he told her that she was on the verge of juvenile diabetes. My daughter was 185 pounds and the guilt lay on me. She was terrified, and I was terrified for her. The doctor expected her to drop a significant amount of weight. She cried, and told me she couldn’t do it. I said, “what if I did it with you?” So we started walking in our hometown until the weather turned cold. Then we went and bought Jillian Michaels 30 day shred and we made exercise a priority, 6 days a week. We pored over nutrition and dieting web sites and learned a healthier way to cook. We now own several DVDS and at 5:45 am Monday through Saturday you can hear us jumping with Bob on Biggest Loser or shredding it with Jeanette Jenkins or Jillian. For me this has become a lifestyle change because it just knocks out the stress my job brings with it. And to see the smile my daughter wears when she achieve a goal she set for herself, well now THATS motivation!

    Hi Regina! Thanks so much for your comment! That’s such a great story and I’m so glad that you and your daughter found the motivation to help each other get fit! Keep up the great work and always be on the lookout for fun new ways to workout and things to do to offset boredom. Having your daughter as a parter will help too! In my experience – most people are successful with they workout in a group or have a partner to do it with them. Please keep me posted on your journey and let me know if there is anything I can do to help!
