How do you keep clients motivated? We believe that fitness should be fun and inspiring. We believe that every woman should be healthy and fit, full of energy and enthusiasm for life, and look and feel fantastic! We believe that in order to get fit and healthy, all you have to do is ask your body to do just a little bit more than what it?s accustomed to doing, regardless of your current shape, size, age or ability. Adventure Boot Camp provides workouts that foster fun, support, community, accountability, inspiration, and teaches women how to look, feel, and perform their best in life. Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not? I do not. In fact, I think in the context of today?s ?box? gyms, pushing intensity beyond capability, is completely stupid and entirely unnecessary. Does that mean exercise is easy? Of course not. Exercise must be smart in that it meets the participant at her level, and it progresses at her pace, based on her unique characteristics. Because the opposite is true too. The same ole routine, day in and day out, leads to stagnation, boredom, and no results. There?s a fine balance between exercise that is too hard, and workouts that are too easy in that they are a waste of time. Adventure Boot Camp has perfected that balance, we call the sweet spot in fitness. Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility? Clients come to our facility for workouts that are fun. They come to our facility for leading edge education on fitness, health, and nutrition. And they build lifetime relationships within our community. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? My approach to fitness has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, and I have been honored as one of the nation?s top 50 personal trainers by the American Association of Personal Trainers. I have been a local media consultant in the area of health and fitness for the past 8 years.

  • The Columbus Color Palooza
    Donning their whitest T-shirts, The Cincinnati Color Palooza participants gather for a 3-mile fun run through downtown Cincinnati, during which they’ll be doused in a rainbow of nontoxic powdered hues cast into the air by enthusiastic volunteers. At the end of the run, competitors are granted their own colored powders to lob at friends, race organizers, and black-and-white television sets sitting in their attics. Runners are encouraged to keep the celebration going at the nearby Cincinnati Pride festival in Sawyer Point Park, where there will be beer, live music, and family activities. Those looking to run for a good cause can create a fundraising page for Color Palooza’s charity partner, Susan G. Komen Greater Cincinnati Association for the Cure, which helps in the fight against breast cancer. The The Cincinnati Color Palooza is free for children 7 and younger.

  • GlowBash 5K
    As the sun sets, cityscapes buzz with neon silhouettes as runners in glow-in-the-dark garb race through the GlowBash 5K's metropolitan courses. But the late starting time and futuristically clad participants are not the only things that set this race apart from other 5K trots. Competing in teams of two or more, runners must follow 10 clues provided at the start of the race that will guide them to a series of predetermined checkpoints and challenges. Depending on the route they take, runners can cover anywhere from 3 to 5 miles in a path that can take roughly 2.5 hours to complete. After the race, each participant receives a medal and access to a post-race party, where they can mingle with fellow runners rather than going home and jogging alone on their human-sized hamster wheel. The race benefits a local charity.

  • Cincinnati
    The Urban Dare Adventure Race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. Combining the bustle of a track meet with the brain-taxing sleuth work of a luge competition, the race uses a dozen trivia-based clues to lead contestants to checkpoints all over their sprawling metropolis. Location hunters reach their checkpoints by whatever means necessary, be it hopping a bus downtown, flying madly through a network of secret ziplines, or scuba-diving in a fountain for bus fare. At the mini destinations, racers must use a camera to document their presence or, in some cases, get their passports stamped after completing challenges that may include a climbing wall or solving a riddle.

  • Mean Streets
    For this 5K race, a normally tame park or other venue is transformed into Mean Streets, an urban-themed obstacle course. In the Construction Zone, participants navigate over and under traffic barriers of different heights followed by a dive into a trash-filled dumpster. After bypassing the dumpster zone, runners test their stamina as cat burglars, scrambling through first-floor windows and trespassing through backyards. They barely touch ground before scaling upward once again on the Time-to-Climb portion of the course, which features a Jason Bourne-esque run across the rooftops. Finally, contestants climb out a window and onto the fire escape, swinging across an 8-foot ladder to reach the finish.

  • TheSuperRun - Cincinnati
    In comic books, sightings of masked and caped individuals means someone is about to get rescued. Sightings of these people at The Super Run are no different, except the beneficiaries of these superheroes are charities in need of funds. The Super Run partners with non-profit organizations across the country to host superhero-themed events that raise funds and awareness for each charity?s cause. The Super Run?s super staff provides logistical support, helps charities pick out the location to hold the run, and manages volunteers who recruit sponsors and work the run. Charity runs take place from coast to coast, including Seattle, Honolulu, and Gotham City.
