Join the New RJ/Diakadi Bootcamps—Saturday Sessions Start 9/12

By L. K. Regan

This coming Saturday, you have your first opportunity this month to get your butt kicked in person by Diakadi Body co-founders Billy Polson and Mike Clausen, and their co-trainer Josh Leeger. Starting this week, for all the Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in September we'll meet at a beautiful San Francisco location and workout together for an hour. Ready for an intense, cutting-edge workout in a beautiful location? Then pick your desired days and locations, and join us! Note: You are welcome to sign up for whichever days you like—including Saturdays only!

To get the flavor of what to expect, here's a group from our last series stretching in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge:

The Details
The Outdoor Workout Series will run every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday beginning on September 8th and for the entire month. You pick the days that work for you—there is no obligation to do the entire series. We will gather in Mission Creek Park, Baker Beach, and Golden Gate Park. Weekday workouts will begin at 6:30 a.m., Saturday workouts begin at 10 a.m. All workouts will be one hour in length, giving you plenty of time to be showered and changed for work or Saturday lunch. Feel free to sign up for whichever workouts you can attend at $20 per workout. If you think you can do the entire series, save $40 by buying a complete package for $200.

The RealJock/Diakadi Beyond Bootcamp series draws from the bootcamp concept but aims at teaching clients instead of breaking them down. Clients of any age or fitness level are welcome to participate. Each individual learns self-assessments for posture, flexibility, strength and muscle-balance. In addition, the all encompassing workout includes everything from core stabilization drills and sand resistance training to obstacle and relay courses for total body strengthening. This series is a sure guarantee for any individual to improve posture, reduce body fat, gain strength, and test endurance (below, a bunch of intrepid guys do a wall-sit for quad strength). Most clients will burn an average of 1,000 calories per session, and each receives a written workout straight from the instructors! And, with workouts three days per week, participants will be able to see their strength and fitness gains develop over the course of the month—not to mention find some great new San Francisco spots to work out in.

Diakadi co-founders Billy and Mike are well-known to RealJock members as creators of our 12-week Diakadi Body workouts. Their facility, Diakadi Body, has been named the Best Place to Get Fit by San Francisco Magazine, declared to have the Top Personal Trainers in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Chronicle, and voted the Best Personal Trainers and Best Health Club by CitySearch over the past four years. Billy and Mike offer training governed by principles of functional movement, proper form, and high intensities. Here is an opportunity to get an introduction to the Diakadi method of personal attention and expert training for a very low price (not to mention an opportunity to meet some great new workout buddies).

To get you in the spirit, here is a group from our last series doing a wall-sit. Hello, quads!
