West Coast Boot Camp was a nominee for Best Boot Camp on CityVoter and MyFoxLA's 2009 Best of LA HotList. More than 70 CityVoters gave it five stars:
- One of the things I really respect about WCBC is their consideration and support for their community. They are also very supportive of children's fitness. Great people! Check them out! – ControlledBumFitness.com
- West Coast Boot Camp has been a life changing experience for me. The program is the the [sic] best around hands down. I thought I would come to the boot camp feeling like an outsider. I was very nervous about taking on such a program due to my size and capabilities. The instructors are so friendly and encouraging. Adrian makes me feel like there is nothing I can't do. He pushes me hard but accepts my short comings and works with them. – Dylan07
- Adrian and his team are fantastic and very dedicated! Always friendly and upbeat at 5:30 in the morning is hard to do! I have been doing WCBC for years! Love it! – garemick44
West Coast Boot Camp
West Coast Boot Camp's Adrian Pietrariu is at his best during the heat of athletic competition. Not content with dominating opponents during taekwondo matches, Adrian assembled a team of seasoned instructors that now forms the core of WCBC’s training staff. Their signature boot camp meets in places such as beaches and parking lots to get hearts pumping and calories burning. Adrian also helps individuals unlock inner combatants with martial-arts classes, achieve their athletic aspirations with one-on-one coaching, and learn the difference between a basketball and an overripe cantaloupe with sport-specific training.
