    I got back last Sunday from Puerto Vallarta where I participated in the Real Jock boot camp. (I've been working on this since last Monday, but held off posting until today because I didn't want it to get lost in a barrage of election/political threads.) It was an incredible experience. Working with Billy and Mike was even better than I expected. I find it hard to write about Billy because I quickly use lots of superlatives and it winds up sounding like I'm overstating things. I'll just simply say Billy is an amazing trainer.

    We met every morning for at least an hour. On three days there was an afternoon session as well. Most of the workouts ended in the pool or the ocean. Nothing beats stretching on the beach and a swim in the ocean after a tough workout.

    Here is a picture of the field where most of our workouts took place.

    I've enlarged three areas of interest in that photo. First, we used the TRX quite a bit.

    We also used tubes a lot despite two tube-related injuries on the first day. Just a tip - when using tubes in partner exercises, make sure you maintain a tight grip on your end.

    Finally, an unintended bonus in this picture - muscle men applying sunscreen

    Here are some shots of the group working out on the beach (courtesy of bootcamp participant and new RJ member ericsantamaria). I met some great guys in boot camp. What really impressed me was how supportive everyone was of each other.

    Hopefully Atlantis will continue to work with Real Jock to offer boot camps at future resort weeks. I know that there was a thread about getting Real Jock members on a cruise together. I highly recommend you consider doing a resort week (if there is a boot camp) instead.

    Does anybody know when the next bootcamp is, or whether there'sone at the next Atlantic Cancun resort weekend? I emailed Atlantis and asked, but they're not being too responsive icon_confused.gif

    Billy said they couldn't do the boot camps on a cruise due to the logistics, so that only leaves the Cancun and Puerto Vallarta resort weeks. So the earliest it would be is April.

    Real Jock must have posted something about the last boot camp in either late June or early July given that I booked my trip in mid-July. Hopefully we'll get 3-4 months notice again.

    Apparently all of Atlantis management isn't convinced there is a demand for boot camp, so if you are interested in it please e-mail Atlantis and let them know. I think if they actually promoted the boot camp on their website they'd get a good response. Most of the people who attended the workouts in PV had no idea boot camp was being offered when they booked.

    Thanks Madtown. Will try emailing them again.

    There's a week in Cancun on 25th April, and a link to it from an old RJ page, but no indication about the bootcamp...
