For anyone intrigued by my Bootcamp posts, but not ready to make the commitment and shell out the money…now’s your chance to try it out for free. Here’s the details:
Free BootCamp class this Saturday in the Marina
We are partnering with lululemon athletica in Cow Hollow on Union Street to offer a free demo BootCampSF class this Saturday, June 14th beginning at 8:30am and ending at 10am. We will start and end at the lululemon store (1981 Union Street between Laguna and Buchanan Streets).
Current BootCampers are welcome and encouraged to attend this class (it will be a regular BootCamp class) led by Kerry Coulter and Megan Keeley, our lovely Marina instructors. It’s your chance to finally get in a Saturday workout without the trek to Ocean Beach!
I finished my first session of bootcamp about 2 weeks ago, and went straight into session two. I wanted to wait to do the fitness test with Rob and Heather last weekend as well as my own version of the Slim in 6 diet (which, let’s face it, is only different in that I drank some alcohol) before I posted my results.
But before I do that, I want to make this post a bit more personal and give some background story…
Ok Peeps, the first ever all viewer fitness test is going to happen this weekend! I am shooting for Saturday afternoon. Anyone local who wants to get together to do these with Smurf and I, well contact us and let us know you want to come by.
I warn you, this is a workout in itself. I’ll post the test so we can all post our results!
(You will need measuring tape, a pull up bar, a floor, a wall, a stop watch and heart rate monitor [optional]) We will also be busting out the calipers to do body fat checks!

Now that I’ve turned into this big jock, in addition to suffering through date rape jokes from my HIGHLARIOUS friends, I also find myself having to purchase jock clothing and jock accessories. New running shoes, in particular, since attempting to run up the hills and over the dales of Golden Gate park on three-year-old crosstrainers was just plain stupid.
We realize there might be a good bit of dust and debris in the air over here, but I hope you will find the content accessible and, of course, COMMENT on what you like/don’t like/would like to see.
Neither Rob or I know much about setting up WordPress, so if anyone who stumbles across this page has pointers for us on improving the usability, please also add your two cents.
Stay tuned tomorrow for our Bike to Work Day coverage, which has been pushed back due to site development.
Hopefully, this move is step 2.1 to making a new home we can all enjoy.
Welcome to our new pet project! The idea is that there are a whole lot of websites out there that talk about being “fit” as this kind of assy, sterile pursuit. Well, we live in San Francisco, where the great food and cocktails are as compelling as the glorious outdoor spaces and “healthy living” influences. In fact, we think things like great food and cocktails are as important as finding the right fitness program. It’s all about balance and finding the things that you feel passionately about.
Things I feel passionate about:
- Still being able to do the splits, backbends, herkies and heel stretches at the ripe old age of 34
- Going to the farmers market and picking out the weirdest-looking vegetable and make something delicious of it
- Finding out after a lifetime of thinking I couldn’t that I can actually run OK and it’s sort of fun
- Inventing food and cocktails using fresh, local ingredients
Things I don’t feel passionate about:
- Counting calories
- One Point desserts, potato chips and fast-food burgers
- Saddling myself with guilt over having a an extra scoop of salted caramel ice cream or glass of perfectly-louched absinthe
That’s not to say that people who find fulfillment in counting calories and eating styro-diet food aren’t welcome. In fact, if you do, might you be interested in guest blogging for us? We want this to be an inclusive place where all our friends who want to better themselves in whatever way can share their experiences.
Some stuff you might see:
- Fitness updates and personal anecdotes from me, Rob and people like YOU! For me, these are likely to be text-based. You’ll get some cheesecake shots when Rob does his.
- Restaurant/cocktails reviews from around San Francisco
- Photos of things like nice walks in the city, Bay to Breakers, pick-up soccer games, Embarcadero runs, etc.
- “Recipes” of stuff that comes out of the kitchen here at the FitLife compound. (Disclaimer: I don’t measure much, but I’ll tell you what I can.)
- Experiments on infused booze, mixers, random vegetables we find at the farmer’s markets
- Reviews from real people of various fitness products, with an initial focus on Million Dollar Body products (Rob is a coach, so we have a fitness library here at the house.)
We’re also open to hearing from you fine folks, so, please, post your suggestions below.
Oh, and none of the design is final, this is just a placeholder. I need to go make some broccoli rabbe and smoked boar sausage pizza now.
Peace and love, Inc.
