What is your favorite exercise routine? What really works for you in terms of satisfaction and fitness? Feel free to share your stories.

I’ve started a 12 week program we’ve dubbed Boot Camp Bill. Once a week I get together with personal trainer and registered dietitian Tara Wind at The Performance Academy in Apex for an intense hour long workout. The term “boot camp” certainly doesn’t conjure up positive images for most people but I’ve really enjoyed the early stages of the regimen. The hour flies by and I really feel like I’m getting an awesome workout. Plus, it’s anything but boring. You’re always moving on to something new.

So far Boot Camp Bill has included sprints, sled pushes and pulls, tractor tire flips, and old-fashioned pull-ups. I will keep you posted on how things are going.  Special thanks to photographer Jeff Reeves for documenting the workout and even doing some rounds himself!

How are your workouts going?
