Boot Camp

 We opened this gym, because we want you, to get fit!

“I enjoy the small group atmosphere. I have made many friends that help with the encouragement of working out when I may not feel like it.  Without Bootcamp, I wouldn’t make have any accountability for attending and I can see I would not make it to the gym as often.”  Program Rating: 10/10″ L.Saby

in 2010 we started up a Boot Camp program, made it affordable, made it include everything and made it fun.  And in January 2016, we joined Fit Body Bootcamp and made it even better!

We have had client after client drop 20, 30, 50 pounds, and some even more!   Some boot campers have started running, competing in Spartan Races, and embracing a FIT and HEALTHY lifestyle, while looking GREAT!  It is a great program, and we are always in the process of IMPROVING it even more!

Diana is having AMAZING results!

Let me get right to it:

So what is included?

This program is very unique. It employs 4 distinct components that absolutely guarantee success, and here they are:

(1)   Strength Training:

Dieting alone will not allow you to reach your goal. You see muscle is 50 times more metabolically active than fat. By using specialized strength training we prevent the metabolic shutdown that restrictive dieting usually creates. Our training involves postural accelerated circuit and interval style strength training programs geared toward maximal fat loss and visual toning.  You get private access to our Studio’s or Boot Camp Room with trainers to guide you every step of the way.    Value: $360

2)   Cardio Training:

Yes, cardio training can be painfully boring and just sucks, but it’s a critical component. Cardio training is the catalyst that brings the whole program together and it doesn’t have to be the boring monotony of a treadmill or Stairmaster. By changing variables such as intensity, duration research has shown that 30min of weight training has the same benefits as 60 min of cardio training.   Value: $147

3)   Nutrition:

You are what you eat. Exercise will not produce the dramatic results on its own. Your nutrition alone is 75% of your total success and our specialized coaching will ensure you know exactly what and when to eat. By manipulating macro-nutrient ratios (fat, carbs and protein) and by creating a caloric deficit we have created a detailed fat loss nutrition plan that will keep the fat falling off you for 6 weeks straight and beyond.   Value: $117

4)   Motivational Success Coaching:

This is the secret ingredient and something exclusive to this program. You will receive weekly coaching emails designed to steer you clear of pitfalls, provide additional support and accountability and direct access to our years and years of experience, plus articles and recipes every other week.  Value: $HUGE

Yes, that’s right,

(for those of you that did the math)

we could easily charge over $624 a month for this incredible program.

We don’t charge that….not even close……we want you here, getting fit…..and the sooner, the better.  Whether it is Summer and beach season, Fall and getting rid of those barbeque pounds, get ready for New Year’s parties, Winter vacations down south or life in general…. we want you to feel great and look great as soon as possible!

(And all this really means is we’re very passionate about helping people get RESULTS and we’ve been at this a long time!)

What really matters is that our team is passionate about helping you totally transform your body one month at a time. Together we’ve personally trained thousands of local and central Alberta individuals, helping them get in the best shape of their lives.  You could be like everyone around you and stick to bigger clothes and try program after program and fail; and remain self conscious about how you look. Or you can make a decision once and for all to tone up, feel great and enjoy life without the guilt or fear of not being satisfied with what you see in the mirror.

“I am absolutely LOVING the Spartan and bootcamp training!  Without a doubt it is the hardest training I have ever done. I am excited as well as a little anxious for the actual race day- but the one thing I know for sure is that our awesome trainers will have us thoroughly prepared. I actually see our instructors more as coaches than trainers. They put so much of themselves into seeing that we do well. The workouts are stellar and the trainers are always there with help. They are also hugely motivational. They always believe “we can do it” and expect the best from us. I personally find and I believe all of us are finding they make us dig deeper, finding reserves we didn’t know we had!”

“The group workouts are the best. It is so fun to be connected to like minded “crazies” as my husband puts it. To see how much everyone has progressed is amazing- wow! I remember the first day of Smackdown and how hard that was! But look at us now, taking on “The Wall”! I guess we are crazy. A crazy fun group, a crazy great group of trainers and a crazy great gym! I love this place!

Thank-you so much BBF trainers for all your hard work! We will do our best to make you proud on race day. “We will know at the finish line”!”

Gerri Baier

“Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for making me feel comfortable while at the gym.   When a person is overweight they can become very self conscious on how they look in the presence of a fitness facility.  I was, and still am to a degree, one of those people.   I suppose it is a mental issue and as the weight comes off, self confidence does build.  Nonetheless, the overall ‘feel’ of your gym, when I first started as heavy as I was, did not make me feel that way.  It is my opinion that the ‘feel’ of a gym when one starts out can make or break whether a person continues to go.  Anyway, you have a great staff and an awesome gym.  Thanks again!!  Oh and I have now hit the 85 pound mark for weight loss and because of the lifestyle changes that I have made, which includes attending your facility, I feel so much better.”

                            Patty Urban

Sylvan Lake’s award winning, experienced personal training team is looking for SPECIFIC, highly motivated, ‘serious about change’ candidates to participate in the monthly fitness challenge.  

(award winning?  yup.  Business of the year twice, Citizen of the year also twice, and more.  Our passion is our amazing staff and clients who get results, and it shows!)

For many, weight loss is a constant struggle, a physical and emotional battle that often wages on through the years. Weight gain, often starting young, is a direct result of the typical things we do day to day, habits we learned at a very young age.  It’s not your fault. You’ve probably never really had the chance to learn why some of the most common typical foods and habits are making us fatter every year.

This program is not about some new gizmo, you don’t have to sign up all your friends or attend meetings and conference calls, and there are no expensive products to buy.  It is not about crazy, hard to follow diets. It’s about the simple secrets that I’ve learned and passed on to our group of successful personal trainers from the years of training and dieting I’ve personally completed.  I also work with the BEST trainers in the business and we are always refining and improving what we do, and how we do it.

Everyone Experiences Great Results! What do you have to lose? Except excess body fat…..


Lyle started with 6 weeks and kept on going!

“I’ve shed well over 1/3 of my original weight, going from 336 pounds, to my current weight of 200 and have completed my first Half Marathon (but not my last!) and a Spartan Race. I’m now at a very healthy weight,   my family is living a super active and happy lifestyle, and I’ve turned back the clock an easy 10 years on my actual age”  – Lyle Katchur.  (When Lyle contacted us, he ‘couldn’t get up off the floor’ (true story).   Lyle is STILL at 190 lbs years later and has finished 3 more half marathons, half a dozen Spartan Races, including an Ultra Beast (48kms up a mountain, plus 56 obstacles!), AND 5 triathlons including a FULL IRONMAN!  Talk about a change!!)

We become distracted by the “priorities” of life and forget to think about how we feel about ourselves. Our self-esteem and diminished self-confidence prevent us from doing the things we know we need to do to lose weight, look great, stay fit and feel great about ourselves.

Our Fit Body Bootcamp program will teach you everything you need to know to finally get the weight off once and for all! Results are guaranteed!

I loved the bootcamp! I really liked having a specific meal plan complete with substitutions and everything.

A great place to work out. Lots of equipment and selection. Very friendly and great atmosphere” -Nathalie Grzech


nathalie b a Smackdown Boot Camp


YES, that is ACTUALLY Nathalie after having two children.  Those of you with children know, gaining weight is pretty normal, it’s part of the process, but what do you do to get your body back??

I’ve learned that nutrition is key and how it plays a roll in how we look and energy levels. I’ve also learned a healthy  sustainable lifestyle can change your life. I have been able to have 2 kids and get myself back to pre-pregnancy weight and even better shape than I had before.  Thank you for all of your amazing service, trainers, childcare and facility!  I couldn’t have done it without you!”- Nathalie Grzech

Here’s another one:

As I said, we could easily charge over six hundred bucks for this program…But you are not going to pay that to change your life;  in fact you won’t even pay $400 for all of our best secrets for radical physical change. When we opened our doors nearly 10 years ago it’s always been our goal to allow EVERY person serious about change the opportunity to do so. So for the monthly “Smackdown” and body transformation program we have lowered the registration fee to the bare minimum to cover just a few of our expenses, a crazy low

$167 per month for unlimited class access, unlimited gym access and everything else that comes with it!

Yep, you read that right, for each 4 weeks of all inclusive training, nutritional coaching, info, and the chance to lose 15-30lbs and 10-28 inches you are only going to pay a measly $167 each month!  You can attend as many classes per week as you want, at any time of day!

Think about this:

Even without all of the extra’s, 1 month of gym membership and Unlimited Group Fitness costs $85! Add in the meal plan, the body comps, the support, and the you are getting monthly Personal Training for nothing!!!

That’s right; monthly training, coaching and some other cool stuff I will keep secret for now, for $167!

“Other” gyms in town (and in Red Deer) charge over $250 a month for this type of boot camp, and our facility is bigger, more equipped, has more parking, a huge childcare room and is fully air conditioned.        Pay less, and get MORE at Best Body Fitness!!

Your Transformation Program starts when you start.  We add you to the class roster of your choice, get you up to speed and then your anniversary each month, is the date you joined.


Training Sessions:

we recommend that you choose a group timeslot and days a week that are consistent just so you can make friends, but you can, at any time. 


You will be given a full nutrition program guide at your weigh in and Body Composition analysis. This will include a full program breakdown including food choices, caloric recommendations and supplementation suggestions, plus a substitutions booklet to give you power over your meal plan.


In addition to all the education and support you receive during your training sessions, we have secret fat loss techniques which we will be sharing with you during the course of the month. You will be receiving emails every week with tips to enhance your transformation. This will make what are usually difficult times easy and survivable.

WIN Stuff:

We are also constantly adding value through programs and challenges – in 2016, we gave away a cruise to Alaska! In 2017 it was a $1500 travel pass to anywhere!

This program ROCKS so take action and don’t miss your chance to secure your spot now!

Call 403-887-7667 or stop by the gym.

(If the spot you want is full, get on the wait list!  It doesn’t happen much, but sometimes people drop out and spots open!)

I have to tell you one more thing too:  A while back we let people put their name on the list with a ‘promise to pay soon’, and some of those folks didn’t follow through, thus blocking a spot for another person.  So we cannot do that any more.  The ONLY way to secure your spot, is to pay the first installment.
