I signed up for my first session of CPBC in February 2009, thinking I would do just one session. On the first day when Shannon said we'd start by running a lap I was sure I'd die. Yet, as those first weeks passed I realized I was able to do more and more and soemthing in me clicked. I figured I'd try another session, then another and another; every session was a new challenge. All the while I was noticing subtle little differences here and there. A new dress size here and a compliment there continued to propel me to finish off the year. I decided to continue my three times a week in 2010 as well. Recently, I had the opportunity to review some pictures from before I started CPBC and more current pcitures and was actually so surprised to see the results as clearly as I did. CPBC really does work if you do your part and let it work. It's truly addicting to look and feel so much better session after session. I heart CPBC and Shannon!

Like many women, I have struggled with my weight for years and years. I went through some rough emotional times in my life and found that what I enjoyed the most was FOOD! Though I started my weight loss journey prior to joining Code Pink Pink Boot Camp, I can honestly say that it has changed my life. I began taking classes in February of 2009 and have lost nearly 45 pounds, 20 total inches and about 15% Body Fat. I have made some lasting relationships and found the motivation I need to get up and get myself moving every morning. Health isn't just about the way you look, it's about the way you FEEL and Code Pink Boot Camp has made me feel FANTASTIC! Thank You!
I have not completely gotten over the shock of losing 5+ inches in my first 4 weeks at CPBC! I started Code Pink Boot Camp last September (2009) and have been going every morning at 6:00 am in Laguna Beach for every boot camp since. Christian Cianfrani is an expert at designing creative workouts and interspersing interval cardio training with strength and core exercises. Everyday is something different with purpose. I would tell any new Code Pink Boot Camper that if you want to join, go to Laguna Beach in the morning, and be prepared to spend more money later when you have to buy new clothes. I started at size 8 and now I am a size 4 and shrinking! I am definitely stronger and have a more toned body. I also am losing weight with a new awareness in cautious and purposeful eating habits. Do something good for yourself and start the New Year off right with boot camp exercise!
ďSince beginning camp I have lost 15 pounds and can wear clothes that I havenít worn in at least 2 years. I look better and feel better than I have in a very long time. I was to the point where I was clinically obese and was falling asleep in class because I didnít have any energy. I was eating out at least 3 times a week and eating like crap. I didnít value my body and I had lost myself to food and laziness. I have found a new person inside me and I am more positive, more energetic, more fun to be around, and more successful than I thought I could be at this point. I am able to look in the mirror without crying. That has been huge. I realize I donít have to resign myself to being overweight and never exercising. This is a NEW me I have found, Iím not one of those people who gained weight but looked great at one point. I have always struggled and always been very self conscious about it. I am getting comments from people I hardly talk to, classmates and people at work who I didnít think would notice and telling me how great I look. This has been such a rewarding experience and I just wanted you to know the good you are doing.Ē
On my birthday my mother gave me a session for Code Pink Boot Camp. Little did I know what a HUGE impact it would make! As of now I've done 2 complete sessions and I have lost over 16lbs and 12% bodyfat. Not only do you get incredible results but you also get to spend an hour with a bunch of amazing women. Being with the group I am in, and coming to class to see everyone is my main motivation to come to class! It's just not as fun to go to the gym. All in all, code pink boot camp is fun and exciting; you will learn things that can completely change your life. I will be a lifer to Code Pink Boot Camp! Thank You Christina!!
"When my friend approached me about Code Pink Boot Camp I got really excited. . . until she told me it was at 5:30 am! But, I sucked it up and dragged myself out of bed only to find that it wasn't so bad. . . in fact, it was awesome. Teri is amazing, not like the drill sergeant I was expecting at all. She actually cares about each individual and helping them meet their goals. She was always willing to answer questions about diet and nutrition and make individualized suggestions. I was very fortunate that with Teriís help and a strict low calorie diet (no sugar, no alcohol, no starch), I saw unbelievable results. In four weeks I lost 5% body fat and 20 inches. I was full of energy and definitely feeling stronger and healthier. When the four weeks were over, I missed boot camp so much that I did the unthinkable. . . that's right, I signed up again!"
I am still in shock over my mile time this morning. I just can't believe it!

My friends would always try to get me to go to the gym but my answer would always be "no thanks." I hated everything about it and thought it was a waste of my time. Then a friend told me about an outdoor boot camp so I decided to try it. WOW! I love everything about Code Pink! It's challenging but yet do-able. Everyday is something different so I don't get tired of the same routine. And best of all we do weights and cardio so it becomes an all around workout. My stomach and thighs have visibly shrunk. My butt is much firmer. . . no more jiggles. Even my arms look better in tank tops.
After being a heavy smoker for ten years. . . I decided to really challenge myself and quit. With the help of Christina's boot camp motivating me, and now one month smoke free, I have lost 7 pounds and feel like I can accomplish ANYTHING!
Thank you so much Christina!
I tried every diet that exists from "Weight Watchers" to "Nutrisystem"Ö sure, I lost weight-but gained back more because I couldn't stick to it. CODE PINK BOOT CAMP is a way of life Ė and a good healthy one at that! They work with you at your paceÖnot at theirs. During the workouts, they cater to you to make sure you don't "go overboard" at the beginning so you hurt too much to continue the week. They also compliment when they see that you are really trying Ö and who doesn't like a compliment once in a while?? The only way I would run was if a dog were chasing me, now I am able to run a mile without stopping. I lost 12 Lbs and 6 Inches in a month. I am more excited to start my 2nd session that I was to begin this program. Getting up 5 days a week at 5:00 am has never felt better. I want to offer my sincere gratitude to Christina LucyÖand my trainer- Gabby EborallÖ girls, I couldn't have done it without you.
- Kim Dyer,
The first two days have been intense and exactly what I was hoping for. I have worked with a couple of really good trainers and based on two days, I would count Christian among them.

I just want to share with you how wonderful my boot camp experience has been. I attend the 5:30am session with Stacey in Irvine, and I have to admit I NEVER thought I would be able to get up and work out that early. My first time was in November (right after thanksgiving) and I was so nervous, but Stacey made me feel comfortable and let me go at my own pace while still motivating me to push myself. This is my second session and I can already feel my energy and endurance at a higher level. I am going to continue with boot camp and recommend it to others. It is such a wonderful experience. Thank you Code Pink!!!

When I first found out we were getting a young guy from the military Ipictured a humorless drill sergeant barking orders at us and runningus ragged. Happily, this could not have been further from the truth. Although our group has been working hard, we are also having fun. Christian has been a wonderful motivator with his relaxed personalityand great sense of humor. Instead of a sense of competition, he hasbeen able to foster a sense of team work with all of us cheering eachother on. He seems to be genuinely interested in helping each of usachieve our goals and provide tips on how to improve or overcome ourown personal obstacles. It was also very nice to receive a welcomingphone call from him on Sunday night prior to the first day of class. What a nice personal touch! I wish I met more young people who wereas kind, polite and humble as Christian. He's an impressive personwith a great, positive attitude.

Just a little feedback from tonight's Nutrition Seminar. I have attended two previous Code Pink boot camps, but did not take the time to attend the Nutrition Seminars. I am so glad I made the time tonight.Wow!! Jem was terrific! A walking nutrition encyclopedia! He was very easy to listen to, had a great sense of humor, didn't talk down to us, and answered questions as we went-yet stayed on task. It was a lot of information to take in so now I'm motivated to do more research on my own.I will definitely talk this up at tomorrow's Boot Camp! EVERYONE should attend!!!
This Camp Has Exceeded my Expectations! I didnít really know what to expect. I Googled boot camps after my hair dresser was talking about hers and happened to choose Code Pink because of the location and evening hours. I knew nothing about it other than what was on the web page and was more than pleased. Itís been one of the best decisions I made and I look forward to each camp.
Code pink has really motivated me to get back on track with my workout regimen, (I attend 5 days a week). I love coming every morning (Even though getting out of bed is TOUGH), and completing my workout for the day. Itís really motivated me to look at becoming a personal trainer and helping other women achieve their personal fitness goals. I like it much better than a trainer at the gym- I feel like the environment is fun, laid back, but also challenging. I love working out with other woman. There is a gal who is older (maybe 60-65 years old) in our class, and she has done Code Pink since January, and she totally kicked our BUTTS in plank during our testing day!! We were totally inspired! Using only 5 lb weights, Iíve seen improvements in my strength. The workouts are never dull and there is always something new. The only way I can think that I would stop attending the program is due to financial reasons, but as long as I can afford it, I will continue. Thank you.
