Maine Boot Camp combines cardiovascular and strength training exercises in a regimented 4 week camp. All classes are 60 minutes and campers have the choice of committing to a 3, 4, or 5 day per week program. All camps are complete with fitness testing to measure your progress, personal attention and accountability, plus access to phenomenal nutritional advice from a registered nutritionist! Maine Boot Camp focuses on developing your muscular strength, stamina, and overall aerobic conditioning so if you are training for a triathlon, 5K, or just want to keep up with your kids this is the program for you. Individual workouts may include body weight exercises such as push-ups, crunches, squats, lunges, and partner-assisted exercises combined with cardiovascular moves which are all designed to create muscle definition while maximizing your caloric and fat burn. The difference that will be FELT by you, will be SEEN by others!!
- All camps are 4 weeks in duration and campers have the choice of 3, 4, or 5 days/week - YOU choose the days that fit your schedule for camp!
- The program is run primarily OUTDOORS (with the exception of heavy rain, snow, or ice and then it is moved indoors)
- Each class consists of a warm up, pre-stretch, WORK OUT, and cool down. Once we get going there are NO SCHEDULED BREAKS! If you need to take a breather, then do so and join back in as soon as you can!
- Our workouts change constantly, so you AND your body will never know what to expect. We find this maximizes results and decreases your body's ability to adapt to a predicable exercise routine.
- Every Wednesday is 'CARDIO' day. It is our one predictable day of the week focusing solely on developing aerobic efficiency through interval training. Cardio days cater to walkers, first-time runners, as well as marathoners. You will find yourself getting into shape, running faster and further, while boosting your metabolism and burning tons of calories. Cardio days are comprised of a mix of interval training, tempo runs, hills, stairs, and cardio drills that will make you sweat in a way you didn't think possible. Most Maine Boot Campers LOVE to hate cardio days!

What campers have to say:
"Almost one year ago, I began MBC as a very unfit person. I was overweight. I could not run a mile without stopping. I could only work at the low impact version of every exercise. It would have been very easy for me to quit.
But Casey created an environment where I felt it was okay to be the slowest person. I never felt intimidated or ashamed of what I could (or couldn't) do. Seeing women working at all different fitness levels made me feel that it was okay to just work at my fitness level and move forward from where I was at that moment. And little by little I did improve and move forward. Almost a year later'..I have lost 60 pounds and a lot of inches. I actually look forward to getting up and sweating each morning now and miss it when I can't. I have gone from an unfit person that could not run a full mile to a 40-something woman that just completed her first triathlon! I have worked very hard to get to where I am today, but I could not have gotten here without the support of Casey and all of the ladies at MBC.
It was that feeling of acceptance and support in those beginning months of MBC that helped to start me on this path to fitness. For this one person, Casey has truly helped me to change my life for the better and for that I will be forever grateful."

"I can sum up my boot camp experience as one of the single best thing I've ever done for myself. As an exercise addict and avid runner (prior to children), I can easily say these work outs were more mentally and physically challenging then anything I had ever done before. Casey was a great motivator, she's creative and fun. Having now participated in 3 consecutive camps, I can say that I was never bored and always sore (in a good way) almost every day. Exercising in group like this was great in providing the subtle, but added benefit of some 'friendly competition'. I am a lot stronger, more flexible and have much better balance then I did 4 months ago. I have learned so much from Casey about exercising efficiently, core strength and stretching appropriately. These were incredible work outs that far exceeded my expectations time after time. I can say it would be only the most dedicated individuals that could recreate the experience on their own, and I would also be hard pressed to find a better personal trainer. I would recommend Maine Boot Camp to anyone looking to improve their health and well-being. "

"Casey's classes are wonderful because every day is different. She takes into account the various physical levels and limitations of her students and offers low impact versions if they need it. The group atmosphere is great and extremely motivational. Everyone works their hardest without judging how the person next to them is doing. I have taken numerous aerobic and strength training classes at my local gym but nothing comes close to the quality workout you will get from Casey. You will see results with Casey."
Stella C. (Falmouth, ME)
"It's nice to see my waist again. I've dropped 2 pant sizes, and my cholesterol has dropped. it's fun to exercise with a group of women, it's a great way to start the day. Casey really knows how to organize a great work out! I've been doing this since Sept. and no two days have been the same!!"
Sharon H. (Falmouth, ME)
"Maine Boot Camp is simply the best! I particularly like the variety of activities and the sense of fun that is built into the program. I really feel like I am getting the maximum benefit out of each workout and it makes getting out of bed early in the morning totally worth it. Casey is an energetic and creative instructor who draws on her extensive education and background to give everyone in the group the best possible workout day after day. I highly recommend the program to anyone wanting to improve their lives and overall fitness level."
Vicki K. (Yarmouth, ME)
"I have never enjoyed working out so much in my life and I'm an exerciseaholic!! If you like to get your butt kicked and have fun at the same time, Boot Camp is a great way to start your day! I absolutely love the variety, the sessions are different everyday all the while working all the major muscle groups and some of those smaller ones you never even knew you had. Casey's knowledge of the body and her vast collection of exercises ensures that everyone can work to their individual capacity without hurting themselves. If you need an alternative activity to accommodate an injury or limitation she's always got an option for you. Her creativity and enthusiasm is so inspirational and motivating. The camaraderie with the other women is awesome, dare I say a highlight of my social life! I always feel so great after Boot Camp, I start my day with a smile on my face knowing that I've given myself a very healthy and energizing treat before facing the world!"
Betsy P. (Yarmouth, ME)
"My Maine Boot Camp experience has been unbelievable as well as unforgettable! I never thought I would LIKE it but I do. Casey is so supportive and creative in her training....we never did the same thing twice. While my level of fitness was the worst of the group and I was worried about slowing everyone down, it never seemed to get in the way of what Casey had us doing, as each individual goes at her own pace!"
Susan H. (Cumberland, ME)
"Casey can kick butt like no other. I love a great a workout and this one is worth getting up for! Casey is a great motivator and incorporates her vast experience into a truly unique workout every time. No day is the same. The group experience is great and everyone is at their own level. A definite not to miss!"
