Over the summer, when I get to take some extra time off, one of the things I get to do more of is exercise. This past summer, my wife Tracy and I decided to enroll in a program at Barry's Boot Camp, which, as the name implies, is a drill program. It was an hour in length; two parts cardio and two parts weights, stretching, squatting, etc. After the first session, which was a total shock to my system, I actually started to enjoy it. Not only was it a tremendous workout, it was something Tracy and I could do together, and it certainly helped to take a few (if not more) pounds off. But alas, summer ended, boot camp was no more, and over the course of the last eight months those extra pounds re-appeared (surprise, surprise).
So a few weeks ago, my gym in NYC sent an email announcing their own version of boot camp called ETC. I'm not sure what it stands for, but if it means anything like "the whole enchilada," I think the name fits. The six-week program started this past Monday and will run through the middle of May, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8-9PM. Three nights per week for six weeks.
