Okay, so priceless is a bit inaccurate.  There are indeed prices for BootCampSF (Click here for rates or email, but the feeling you get is totally priceless!

I’m here as part of my New Year’s resolution to get into better shape.  Honestly, it’s the same resolution that I’ve had every year for the past 2 or 3 or 10 years.  But there is one glaring difference between this year and all those other years.  This time… I MEAN IT!!  Okay, I admit that I’ve also said that before with varying results… but seriously… I MEAN IT!

Another difference between this New Year’s fitness resolution and every other past New Year’s fitness resolution is that I have a wedding to attend at the end of April and it happens to be my own!!  So what can I do to ensure that I am in tip top shape for one of the most important days of my life?  Better question is “what am I not going to do?”

Clif Bars of varying sizes(variation is the spice of life)?  Chia seeds (flax is so 2011, but I’ll try that out too)? Blender Bottles(for protein shakes instead of liquor…in addition to liquor)?  Head lamp(winter means a lack of daylight)?  Running gloves(Yes, I have specific gloves for running.  Well actually, they are more for when we stop at some random spot in the park and we have to go to the ground.  After a while picking pebbles out of my hands just gets tedious, hence the need for running gloves.) ?

You name it, I’m going to try it.  Heck, I even bought a copy of Men’s Health to see if their “SPECIAL LOSE-YOUR-GUT ISSUE” will actually help me lose my gut.  I’m willing to try anything short of starvation or cleanses where I have to drink mixtures of lemon juice and cayenne pepper.

If it means no more fried chicken binges, regular cheeseburgers as opposed to double cheeseburgers, saying no to free food(usually in candy, donut or potato chip form), then I’m going to do it.  This is the year of health and I mean it.  Really.  I do.  Remember I mentioned that whole getting married thing?  WOOOHOOO to fitness!!

As a thank you for making it through my first blog post of 2012, take a look at the picture below.  That’s right, Sports Basement is having what I believe is their first sale ever.  Usually, as a member of BootCampSF we get 10% off our purchase, but from now until the first big snow fall, everybody gets 20% off their purchase (with a few exceptions)!!!!  Looks like snow maybe next week so get out there while you can!   And just in case you were wondering if that was 20% in addition to the 10% off that we already get, then the answer is unfortunately no, but hey, 20% is 20%.  Happy shopping for all your fitness needs!
