I feared for my life while running by Watermark on Kits Beach this morning when I spotted a camouflage-clad platoon in my periphery. AMBUSH!!!! It turns out it was just a Cardio-Core Bootcamp class of about 75 trying to get into shape for the tail-end of summer. I gotta say I thought this concept was semi-interesting when I saw the odd class of 4-8 people in private bootcamp classes around Kits Beach the last couple of summers, but this is getting crazy. Cardio-Core has gone from a unique idea to a franchise and people are flocking to it like lemmings. These fitness crazes have got out of hand – first it was pole-dancing and now this. I’m going for a ‘jog‘.
Note to Cardio Core – don’t give your signature camouflage t-shirts to recruits until they have achieved fitness perfection and graduated. These instantly recognizable t-shirts serve as walking billboards on your trim, fit instructors but don’t exactly sell the concept on a 285 pound, 5’11" guy that dropped out of the program after day one.
