Training is a creative process. When we consider yoga, pilates, aerobics, bar, fast twitch, spin, and the current fad, Cross Fit, we can see how the evolution of fitness has explored so many possibilities.
For some folks, training is more art than science. It is most common to stand on the shoulders of great men and women who have gone before us. We take their experience and add any new findings that can benefit our own program.
Boot Camp stands on the shoulders of some great men. The techniques that we incorporate spring from a foundation that was laid decades ago. There was a motley crew of half cocked wack jobs that once ruled the world. They lifted up Pre, Shorter, Rogers and "The Rookie". These were the fastest men on earth in their day. They "trained like animals." They made no excuses and were vicious competitors. They were blue collar types that would "work it out so only the toughest guy could win."
Kirk Pfrangle is our connection to this group of fastest men. We refer to Kirk and Bill Squires often regarding training. A few years back we distributed a number of Bill Squires books about training. These men have produced some of the greatest champions of all time and graciously give us the keys to the kingdom so we can reach our modest fitness goals.
