His work ethnic is unmatched, cerebralness uncanny, and his ability to help those who are having a difficult time is unselfish. He’s one of the few trainers who I know that still trains clients for free (SPECIAL SITUATIONS). Santa Monica wouldn’t be where we are today without him.”

COUNTRY BOOTYCAMPS

The booty aka gluteus maximus, medius, and minimus, is one of the strongest muscles in the human body. If you want it to grow, the equation is stress, tension, and damage (STD). If you’re a beginner (less than 30 days of training experience), you’ll need to learn the proper mechanics of the Squat, Deadlift, Hip Thrust, Bulgarian Squat, and Jumps. After a month of learning the mechanics of each exercise, overloading the movement is paramount for development. The first month will be lighter weight and more reps (10+ reps); the second month will be heavier weights and lower reps (less than 10).

At Show Up Fitness, our Bootycamps are designed to build bootys. Every class will consist of a two core lifts (Squats, Deadlifts, Hip Thrusts), an isolating movement, upper body push/pull, and core/cardio**. Each class will be carefully monitored by a certified personal trainer who has graduated a twelve month personal training school. The classes are maxed out at 8 (usually each class has 5 clients). Unfortunately our society believes that a good workout is based off of how much you sweat and soreness–THIS IS FALSE! When you learn from the best personal trainers in Santa Monica, you’ll experience what a quality workout is. 

Tuesday & Thursday COUNTRY BOOTYCAMP: 6:00am Chris
1st class FREE, bring a friend and the next one is FREE
$25 per class, $200 for 10 classes
