Good morning, and happy hump day!

In my 6 years of being a personal trainer, I’ve noticed a trend every single June: there’s a little dip in clientele. Not only do I have fewer in-person clients to train this month, but gym membership usually drops, too (this also happens every December.) It always picks back up in July, but it’s good to be able to have 6 years of experience trending those numbers.

However, knowing that June was going to be a slow month in the gym, I’ve been busy behind the scenes around here, and it’s finally time to let you all in on what’s been going on…I’ve been going to Glute Camp!

Well, actually I’ve been testing out workouts, and building a 4-week program for YOU all. The goal of the program: activate and build the muscles of the booty. Also, to give the muscles of the posterior chain in general a little more lovin’.

In general, most people are anterior-chain dominant, meaning we have a muscle imbalance of anterior to posterior muscles. Nowadays, activities of daily life (ADL) make us quad-dominant, tight chested, shoulder-rounded, flat-booty-ed, modern day humans. We sit in our cars and drive a lot (excessive hip flexion,) sit at our computers a lot (excessive shoulder rounding and hip flexion,) and we don’t know how to activate our glutes. This program is designed with that in mind.

If you think about it, our glutes are the BIGGEST muscles in the body, so we should be using them for almost everything, right? Well, we should be, but that’s rarely the case. Most of our bodies have learned to “turn them off,” because we use them so rarely. Hey, it takes work to use those big muscles, and our bodies have found a way to take the path of least resistance.

So, What is Glute Camp?

A 4-week total body program that begins July 7th (a week from this coming Monday) with a focus on the booty and the posterior chain, nutrition and meal ideas, and motivation to get the most of your results. It requires very little equipment, so it’s perfect for those who of you who aren’t feeling a gym right now (but is fine for those who are.) The glutes are my personal favorite muscle group to train, and over the years, I’ve learned from both experience and research which exercises and how they’re done will get the best results.

Oh yeah, and here’s the kicker – it’s absolutely FREE. Yep, you heard me right! It costs you nada. I was actually going to set it up just like my round 1 boot camp, but then I figured, what the heck? I’ve got some time, and I was feeling nice Smile Plus, I’ve been wanting to set up a newsletter for the blog for a long time, and this is the perfect opportunity!

The Glute Camp workouts and info will NOT be posted on my regular blog posts, so you’ll need to subscribe to my newsletter to get your Glute Camp workouts, nutrition, and tips delivered right to your inbox each week. (That’s also easy and freeWinking smile) Every Friday you’ll receive an email with all the info you need for the next week. Just eneter your email in the newsletter subscription in the top right hand corner of the post – easy as that.

please consult with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.

Check-in Giveaway and Prize Package

I value accountability in any fitness program, and with my boot camp, and as a little bonus accountability incentive, I’ll be holding daily check-ins for each workout. At the end of each week, I’ll randomly select a participant with the most amount of check-ins and personally send them a month-supply of KIND bar goodies!

All right, I think that’s all for today. I’ll post more deets on Monday about the types of workouts, frequency, etc., but I wanted to put in on your radar in case you’re looking for a program to do in the near future.

With that said, let’s get ready for Glute Camp! Start thinking about your goals, what you want to achieve, why you want to achieve it, and how you’ll feel when you do. Here we go!
