Broomfield Breast Cancer Boot Camp

May 18th, 2010

Westminster, CO — May 18th 2010 – Breast Cancer is one of the leading causes of death among women.  There are several organizations out there, such as the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, and many more, that put on weekend long events where the entire country, regions, states, counties, and towns, can gather together to raise money and find a cure for breast cancer.

Local martial arts expert and certified personal trainer, Javier Lozano, Jr. is the owner and chief instructor at The Dojo of Karate & Fitness in Westminster, and plans on hosting their 1st Inaugural Breast Cancer Boot Camp on June 12th, 2010.

Their goal is to raise over $3,000 and donate the funds to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

However, Coach Lozano plans on approaching this fundraiser a little different.

He wants to get all of his martial arts and fitness members involved too, even though some of the students may be too young to train in a boot camp session.

His plan of attack…? pink karate belts.

Coach Lozano says, “We will be selling pink karate belts to students for them to wear during the week of June 7th to June 12th during their martial arts classes.  This way, they can show their support in finding a cure for breast cancer.  When we brought up the concept a couple of months ago, students were extremely excited about the idea, and couldn’t wait to signup.”

The pink martial arts belts will be on sale for purchase at $15 per belt, with approximately $10 of the proceeds going to the Avon Walk For Breast Cancer.

Than, on Saturday, June 12th from 9:30am to 10:30am The Dojo of Karate & Fitness will be hosting the official Breast Cancer Boot Camp.  A 1-hour boot camp session where participants will have an opportunity to workout in the popular fitness boot camp class.

Their boot camps really focus on variety.

“When someone asks what a typical boot camp consists of, I sort of tell them we do not have a normal routine or workout” says Coach Lozano.  “Now if they want to know what people are saying about our programs and how they feel after the workout, the best example is that they leave feeling like jelly, sweating like pigs, and hurting… while having a big smile on their face.”

The Broomfield Fitness Boot Camp, as it’s known by locals, train with a variety of exercise equipment.  This way, it keeps the workouts interesting, and the athletes on their toes.

For instance, they use resistance bands instead of dumb-bells because it becomes more difficult to control the bands.  There is resistance on both the pushing / pulling motion, as well as the retrieving motion.

In addition, Coach Lozano teaches them how to use sandbags.  It’s an unorthodox way of training because the sand will shift in all different ways, making it difficult to maintain control.  This forces athletes to use their stabilizer muscles too.

“Plus, I tell them they can put on their resume that they are professional sandbag movers, incase an employer is trying to set apart candidates” says Lozano jokingly.

And, the ever so kettlebells are another piece of equipment they train with too.  Kettlebells are beginning to gain popularity because of its functional type movement, strength and cardio exercise, and great results athletes are gaining.

After the Breast Cancer Boot Camp, Coach Lozano invited a local chiropractor from Countryside Health and Wellness, to discuss ways to prevent breast cancer — from diet and nutrition, to physical fitness and exercise.

This will be a 30 minute educational class, in order to teach all of the participants on how they can help prevent breast cancer.

The cost to participate in the Breast Cancer Boot is only $30 per participant with approximately $20 of the proceeds going towards the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

And, if you decide to signup for the Breast Cancer Boot Camp, than Coach Lozano will apply a $30 discount to your 1st month of training.

This is a great way to get introduced into the Broomfield Fitness Boot Camp.

Physical Fitness Training Day

October 27th, 2009

On Tuesday’s and Thursday’s The Dojo of Karate hosts an Early Morning Boot Camp at 5:30am – 6:20am…

Yea, it’s early.  But, what better way to get your day going than an early workout.

Today was a PFT Day or Physical Fitness Training Day.  What does that mean…?  We basically have everyone run 1 Mile, do Situps for 2 minutes and Pushups for 2 minutes.  During these days, it’s a great way to bench mark your progress through our fitness program and see where you need to improve.

Want to see how physically fit you are?  Try this…

Time yourself running a mile.  For the average person, they typically can run 1 mile in about 10 minutes.  That’s pretty good too…  If you’re able to go below 10 minutes, than you’re in pretty good cardio shape… but that’s not all of it.

Now, time yourself to see how many pushups you can do in 2 minutes.  However, this is how a proper pushup should look like.  The average person should get about 40 pushups in about 2 minutes.  If you can do more, AWESOME.  If it’s less, than we need to start building your strength and conditioning…

Finally, time yourself to see how many sit ups you can do in 2 minutes.  This is usually the weakest part of the body for most people.  Mainly because of our poor diet practices and minimal exercises performed to build stronger muscles in the abs.  to learn how to do a proper sit up, click here.  The average person can probably do about 30-40 situps in about 2 minutes.

Once you’re timed yourself, than continue to increase your training or workouts throughout the week.  About every 2-3 weeks, do another test to see how well you’re improving.

If you’re looking to get a great, total body workout that will build lean muscle, shed the pounds, and give you more energy, than I suggest you try our Fighting Fit2 Boot Camp Fitness Program in Broomfield, CO.  You WILL see results.  You WILL have fun.  And, you WILL get a killer workout.  Guaranteed.

Don’t believe me…?  Than I challenge you to try one of our Boot Camp sessions on me.  You’ve got nothing to lose and all to gain… or should I say “you’ve got weight to lose, and muscle to gain”.
