I have been going to Boot Camp LA since the spring of 2013. A co-worker recommended I check it out after he had seen great results the year prior. I can honestly say, without hesitation, that it has been an awesome experience! The Major

I became a fat sedentary poor eater in recent years (I mainly blamed stress from sitting in daily traffic). I also had recently recovered from a serious ankle injury from which I was unable to walk for at least 2 months, with full healing

Boot Camp LA has been a great experience for me thus far. I have been able to push myself passed my limits and because of this, my performance in running and other workouts such as push ups, sit ups, and chin ups have improved. But even

One of the key ingredients to success in any athletic endeavor, be it professional basketball or a daily workout regimen, is good coaching. A good coach motivates you, helps you reach your physical potential.

That's why BootCamp L.A. is such a great outfit to get (or stay) in shape; it's run by Jay Kerwin (AKA the Major), a veteran of the Special Operations Pararescue Team, who has matured into a great coach.

Indeed, Kerwin defines what coaching is. He'll make you work, but he'll make that work count. He'll pay attention to your form so you maximize your efforts and avoid injuries. And encourage you while you're doing so. With his quirky sense of humor, he may even put a smile on your face while you're sweating those extra pounds off.

When you're looking for a gym, you want to make sure its hours accommodate your schedule and its equipment meets your needs. When you're looking for a fitness boot camp, it's not so much the equipment that matters, but the personnel. And Jay Kerwin is the coach you need to stay motivated and to, if you follow the regimen, to get in the best shape of your life.

Boot Camp L.A. is the best investment ever. It is a challenging workout, and it is fun. I was in the best shape when I was going to Boot Camp L.A. and always in a great mood after the workouts. Major Kerwin and the Lt are very supportive. I wish I hadn't moved out of the area.

This is the best work out around! It is hard and yet fun at the same time. There is nothing better than working out with someone who really knows what they are doing and loves to teach others. I love that it is outside. I have had a fantastic experience here!

I had a trainer for a while and this is so much more fun and I actually end up doing more than when I was with my expensive trainer anyhow. The comraderie is awesome and I have made some great friends which is something I never did when I would go to exxercise classes at the gym. I highly reccomend Boot Camp L.A.!!

We have both attended this fantastic workout program for a long time and had so so much fun. The Major and the LT are extreemly fun and knowledgable! There is no better way to start you day! Since our move out of LA we can honestly say that we miss BootCamp the most! There is absolutely nothing like it! Hoo-yaa!

Pros: perfect workout, great knowledge, excersizes, fun, effective

Cons: Some times it's a bit challenging to get out of bed so early :)

When you have a group of postive people, the fresh morning air and professionals who look forward to seeing you improve in your posture, strength and endurance ability, then you know you have found the right bootcamp...They welcome you with open arms and are extremely knowledgeable in their field...The quest? To help you make attain your goal without stripping your ego...instead they encourage you, and support your dream by helping you find a nutritional program that works...

I was a skeptic day one that this program would not be challenging, but was I ever wrong! This is great training for all levels!! I'm finishing up my first month and looking forward to the next!

Last November I cancelled my gym membership (which I used on average once each month - never justifying the expenditure) and signed up for BootCamp. I was immediately motivated by the format and the personal attention from The Major and The Lieutenant. A little overly competitive by nature, I really found the group setting to be both challenging and supportive. Everyone wants to see everyone else do well and make it through the hour. You can truly go at your own pace - there is always someone at your level that you can identify with. People in great shape, people working for weight loss, all age ranges and fitness levels. I am in my 6th month now and have seen great results - one, because I am actually motivated to go 3-4 times each week, and two, because the instructors are so hands on in helping you achieve your fitness goal. I'd recommend BootCamp L.A. to anyone looking for a great workout in a friendly environment.

Pros: Instructors, Environment, Workout Philosophy, Fun Crowd

Cons: Work out rain or shine - literally!

I'm doing this outdoor training now for more than 3 years and I never gave up. This is the best recomendation for a good exercice training. MAD

Pros: Varied exercicing, using all opportunitities of the outdoor location

Cons: It's outdoor despite the rain. Luckily it doesn't rain a lot in LA.

I am no athIete. In fact, I flunked PE in junior high. And I used to hate exercising. So when I say Boot Camp LA is like an adult PE class only much more fun that's saying a lot. I highly recommend it for everyone but especially people like me who have no motivation to exercise on their own.

I've been going for the last 5 years & have met some really great people including the "Major" & "Lt." who run the program. Each session is different and the time goes by so quickly that you forget you are exercising!

People are at all different fitness levels as well as different shapes, sizes & ages so it is challenging but not intimidating. There are a variety of sessions (days & times) offered so if you miss a session you can easily make one up.

So if you are looking for a great program that will help you bring out your inner jock this is the one for you! Like me you just might might surprise yourself.

The Major has taken a very concentrated regimen of exercise and nutrition and made it truly motivational. He and the Leutinant (his wife) have created a commaraderie amongst a group of men and women of varying ages and made the 'strenuous' exercise something you really want to do.

After two weeks of a four week program of rigorous exercise for an hour in the morning, three days a week and following the Major's dietary content/scheduling, I'm already seeing real and significant results. I'm truly looking forward to 're-enlisting' for ongoing four-week sessions. I only wish I had started sooner!

I cannot speak highly enough about the Major's way of putting my body in better shape... And, I have been exercising (mainly long distance running, 10k's and marathons along with modest calesthenics) for 27 years. As the Major and Leutinent would say, "HOOYAH"!!!

I started Boot Camp recently and so far I am enjoying the program a great deal! I think what I like best is that it's outside, the Major and Lt. are very encouraging. My favorite part is that when it's done, I will have learned some good exercises I'll be able to do on my own, as well. The sessions are also different every time - big plus! I don't get bored.

I was always considered out of shape and a heavy. I exercised here and there but nothing too serious. Then, buy the chance of luck, I found out I had osteoporosis at the age of 28. Being a male with Osteoporosis was a wake-up call; I didn't want to be a statistic! I enlisted with BootCamp LA petrified and nervous I wouldn't be able to sustain the drills, the laps, and the torture. Boy was I wrong. The Major and the Lt. are two of the friendliest and caring people anyone could possibly know. They are genuine, sincere, and care for your health and progress. The workout sessions are conveniently offered at many times of the day so even the busy professional has no excuse but to get up and sing a song or two around the park (yeah, we do some singing, but its fun!) The team dynamics are also to be commended. The 'warriors' (those in training) are there for the same reason, to get healthy, to learn to be healthy, or to sustain being healthy! Life-long friends are made that support you physically and emotionally. Just when you think you cannot do one more pushup, the Major or Lt are there giving you inspiration that "you can do it!" and indeed you do! It's that "just one more" that sets Boot Camp LA above other similar programs. Two years later at the age of 30, I'm happy to report my osteoporosis has reversed and is nearly gone. I thank the constant encouragement of the Major and Lt as well as other trainees. HOO-YA!

Pros: the Major, the LT, the people you workout with, and BEING OUTSIDE

Cons: when it rains

I have been lucky enough to have been doing boot camp LA for 3 years now. It is not only a very fun and social workout, but it is so fun, that you hardly notice that you're working out...except for the fantastic results on your body..those are unmistakeable !! It's like a high school PE class, without the stigma of high school.
Whether you're in great shape, or can barely breathe when you walk, this is the place for you. It takes about 3 months to really notice results on your body ( my own personal experience), but the postitive results it has on your mind and soul occur much quicker.

The Major and Lt. are not only great trainers, they are wonderful people !
Don't miss out !

This is by far the best training and workout
program I have ever attended. You can tell
that these people know what they are doing.
The book provided to me by the Major helped
me to lose a good 25 pound of FAT.
