Biddeford Saco Boot Camp on the beach @ Fortunes Rocks Beach, Middles Beach, Bath House Beach, in Biddeford Pool
Dec 15 @ 6:00 am – 6:45 am
Biddeford Saco Boot Camp on the beach @ Fortunes Rocks Beach, Middles Beach, Bath House Beach, in Biddeford Pool | Biddeford | Maine | United States

Boot camp uses interval, circuit, and aerobic training. It will burn fat, tone muscle, improve posture, build strength and endurance, and build confidence. You work out your arms, legs, and core using exercises that incorporate your whole body. Boot camp can get you into the best shape of your life. As one of my campers stated, “I am stronger, faster, and leaner”
A typical day includes a warm up, stretches, the ‘workout’, cool down, a possible game or challenge, and finishing stretches.

Boot camps varying routines are intense sessions that offer a variety of exercises, and challenge every muscle in your body. By rapidly moving from one exercise to the next, with minimal breaks, you can get a cardiovascular workout while simultaneously toning your muscles. And, you burn lots of calories. Its fun, varied, motivating, produces amazing results, and meets at a fantastic location.

Boot camp’s 45 minutes workouts allow you to do strength training and aerobic training in a single workout, which is very efficient when you have a limited time to work out.

Dyna Maxx Christmas Meet (Party)! @ Dyna Maxx Gym
Dec 15 @ 4:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Dyna Maxx Christmas Meet (Party)! @ Dyna Maxx Gym | Westbrook | Maine | United States

It’s the most wonderful meeeeeeeeet of the year!!!

It’s time for the annual Dyna Maxx Christmas Meet/Christmas Party! A sign-up sheet will be up in the gym for anyone who wants to “compete”, and for everyone else, swing by and watch your friends set some PRs!

We use the term “compete” very loosely. There will be no weigh ins, no entry fee, no singlets. There will be judges. But they probably won’t notice if you lift your ass off the bench.

There will be a pot-luck so please feel free to bring a food or beverage of your choice!
