Workout Mama's Online Bootcamp: A Review


About two months ago, Tamara of The Workout Mama contacted me to see if I would be interested in participating in her five week online bootcamp.  I will admit, I was a little weary at first.  What all would this entail?  Would I actually be able to commit and get it done?  Where would I find time?  And would it actually work for me?  



I've always been a big fan of workout classes or videos, as opposed to going to the gym and working out on my own.  I get bored easily and don't push myself as hard as I would with a routine.  But let's be honest...I don't go the gym anymore as I don't have time between working full-time and being a full-time mama, so I've relied on workout videos, spinning {I bought a spin bike on Amazon!} and an occasional bar class.

The beauty of this program is that you can do it from the comfort of your own home and on your own time.  I worked out every Tuesday and Thursday morning...the workouts take about 30-45 minutes...and then once on the weekend.  Committing to this schedule was key in staying on track and having success with this bootcamp.  And it really made a difference in how I started my day.  I LOVED getting my workout in early and knowing I started the day out right.  And it was great that I didn't get to miss out on any time with Ethan since he was still asleep in the morning while I worked out.

I still have some baby weight to lose, but more importantly, I really REALLY wanted to tone up.  Over the last five weeks, I came to realize that FEELING good really has much more to do with how you look, not what you weigh.  I finally have some strength and toning back in my legs and arms and my endurance is definitely up.  It's an amazing feeling.

So...how are the classes?


They're awesome!!  Every Sunday, Tamara emails the routines for the week, one of which is a video lead by her.  All of the routines were super intense but easy enough to follow along and not nearly as intimidating as I was expecting.  I sweat a lot and really felt the burn for days after.  In short, Tamara kicked my booty...and I liked it!

The best part is, you also get to communicate via a private Facebook group with other bootcamp participants, which I loved.  We all commiserated over burpees and seal jacks {two moves I loathe!} and also encouraged each other.  It was undoubtedly what kept me on track each week and motivated.

 I'm so happy to be back to a routine that I don't want to lose my momentum so I am taking advantage of her FREE Christmas bootcamp right now AND I signed up for her January bootcamp...I just KNOW that I will thank myself after indulging over the holidays!  Now the question is...who's with me!?!


I would like to give Tamara a heartfelt shout out for allowing me to participate in her bootcamp and really motivating me to get back at it again!  She's amazing...and hello, she's pregnant with her second baby!  Talk about super mom!  Thank you Tamara...you rock!

  3. Thank you for the review! I too work full time and am a full time mom so it's great to know that it's doable with a busy schedule. I also have a hard time motivating myself to actually go to a gym and spend time away from my son so it's perfect to do while he's sweeping! I'm going to check it out! Thanks!

  4. Nice job. Schedule is key to working out on the regular. I personally love working out in the morning and feel like you just start off on the right foot. Plus, then it's done and out of the way. Keep up it.

    1. Hi! The free bootcamp does not require any equipment. The full session requires a set of weights and stability ball :).
