Before modern workout regimens, bodybuilders hurled potato sacks into the wind to tone their biceps and took up jobs as ore miners to pump iron.

Nationally certified trainer John Thompson helms Bakersfield Fit Body Boot Camp, shepherding patrons through intensive workouts designed to boost metabolisms and tone musculature for slimmer, more chiseled edifices. The 21-Day Rapid Fat Loss Boot Camp's body-bolstering session combines both cardio and strength training, drawing together the seven primal movement patterns—squats, bends, lunges, pushes, pulls, twists, and gait-enhancing strides—that hark back to when humans were amoebic ninjas in the primordial soup. Standard Fit Body boot camp trainees net an average of 3–6 pounds of weight loss over the course of 30 days, and the Rapid Fat Loss program is designed to deliver above-average results in 21 consecutive days of 30-minute sweat sessions.
Along with 21 days of workouts, nutritional counseling helps transform torsos into fiery fat-burning furnaces without the use of starvation diets or coal shovelers. Shape shifters will exercise healthy eating habits with the help of food recommendations, meal planning, and instruction in the use of tiny forks.
For John Thompson, it all began with the desire to help people of all sizes and fitness levels live a healthier lifestyle. As a nationally certified personal trainer and fitness coach, John used his know-how to devise the high-intensity Ultimate 30-Minute Workout Experience, an effective, time-efficient workout that targets the whole body. Held 34 times a week, each group workout session combines cardio, weights, and abdominal exercises to boost sluggish metabolisms, tone muscles, and evict stress from tense bodies. To bolster the workout regimen, John and his fit-savvy crew craft custom nutrition programs, providing an easy-to-follow eating blueprint that helps clients establish healthy noshing habits and fit back into their high-school swim goggles.
