Lake Oswego Adventure Boot Camp’s ACE-certified personal trainers help women melt calories and stress with inspiring, friendly four-week fitness programs that pair cardio exercises with strength training and cardio. Led by certified trainers Katie Maclaskey and Noelle Bertram, each one-hour boot-camp session teems with tutelage from an expert and exercises that push participants of all fitness levels toward goals such as losing weight, sculpting muscles, and hula-hooping with the heaviest of Saturn’s rings. Short-distance runs and hikes build endurance and group camaraderie, and obstacle courses cultivate agility and coordination. In addition to boosting flexibility with deep, relaxing stretches, workouts incorporate Pilates-style isometrics to craft strong, lean torsos. Like lawn flamingos, classes head indoors during the winter and outdoors once spring takes root. Consult the calendar for dates, times, and locations, and the FAQ for a list of items to bring to class.
When they are not summoning sweat, the trainers equip exercisers with tools for building healthy, active lifestyles. A complimentary fitness assessment highlights participants’ strength and endurance gains, and Maclaskey, an ISSA-certified nutrition specialist, shares tips on how to fortify the body with healthy foods, not moats filled with alligators.
Adventure Boot Camp
Though they didn't always know it, Katie Maclaskey and Noelle Bertram have been complementing each other's fitness interests for much of their lives. As children, they sharpened their motor skills on the slopes and by the surf, respectively: Katie tackled snow sports while Noelle jogged, rollerbladed, and steered soccerballs across California's beaches. Their families owned neighboring restaurants, yet the girls didn't personally connect until they met on a run and realized their shared enthusiasm for exercise. When they both moved to Portland years later, they decided to combine their knowledge and drive to lead other women toward better physical health.
As certified personal trainers and owners of Adventure Boot Camp, Katie and Noelle invent their own workouts within the renowned franchise. They might craft obstacle courses, cardio circuits, or core-tightening drills for their students, but the encouraging spirit of their lessons never varies—the Lake Oswego Review lauds the "atmosphere of enjoyment and achievement" that pervades every camp session. In their leadership roles, the girls also continue to play off of each other's strengths for their clients' benefit. Katie has earned her ISSA certification as a nutritional consultant, and Noelle is a Sivananda-certified yoga instructor, which means they can show students how to simultaneously cook and balance atop a head of cabbage.
