Overview

You are cordially invited to get your butt in gear! Bootcamp360 for Brides is a health and fitness program that will whip any woman into sultry shape in time for her wedding, and prepare her for a healthy lifestyle even when the honeymoon's over.

"Do you want to look stunning in your wedding dress?"

"YES, SIR!"

"Would you like to impress family members you've never met before with toned arms, sculpted back, and flat abs?"

"YES, SIR!"

Bootcamp360 for Brides is a popular extreme fitness program geared for the woman who wants to look buff in time for her wedding. "Be his better half, not his better three–quarters," says Tamara Kleinberg, whose program focuses on weight loss, nutrition, and shaping up those areas that all eyes will be on that special day, especially the arms, shoulders, and back. Every bootcamp trainee will set time–oriented goals for herself, building an exercise regimen that includes both challenge and variety. The book will also include "tips from the trenches" advice; inspirational success stories and before–and–after photos from bootcamp graduates; and practical nutritional guidelines and "mess hall" recipes; and progress charts to keep brides–to–be focused on their fitness goals.

The Bootcamp360 program has been extremely successful in New York City and in Denver (its two outposts), and Kleinberg is in the process of building a franchise. We think this book, and the program, is going to be a great success.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sleeveless wedding gown? Honeymoon in a bikini? It can be done! Kleinberg, a certified personal trainer, means business. Requiring a PT ball, dumbbells, and resistance bands, these exercises are demanding, at Basic, Advanced, and Hard Core levels. Although there is a chapter on nutrition and several recipes, the book's main focus is on exercise. Several before-and-after pictures are sprinkled throughout, with tips from brides who've survived the course. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Bootcamp360 for Brides

The Few, the Proud, the Fit

The Original Recruit

Tamara Ghandour Kleinberg
178 pounds

Pounds Lost: 30
Dress Sizes Lost: 4
Body Fat % Lost: 7

There I was standing in front of the mirror, baffled. Why didn't my bra fit? Why did my favorite jeans make my love handles hang over my belt line? That couldn't possibly be me in the mirror. Was there something wrong with the mirror? Did my dryer shrink my clothes? Did I really gain that much weight?

As I stared into the mirror, I knew in my heart that I really had gained the weight, but I wasn't ready to admit it. Sure, sitting here today, I realize that my weight gain didn't happen overnight, but when that 178-pound woman was staring back at me, I couldn't face the truth. I didn't want to.

How did I let this happen? I could give you a million and one excuses to justify it, but I won't. In fact, excuses were my standard MO for quite some time. Instead, I will tell you the truth. Throughout my life, my weight had stayed relatively constant; to be honest, it was easy for me to be thin. I used to be fit and had an arsenal of exercises and sports that I enjoyed. In fact, I made it a priority to go to the gym a few times a week, run in the park with friends, play touch football on the weekends for fun, and even make fruit shakes for breakfast. To top if off, I walkedto work and back almost every day. But in February of 2000 I moved to a new city with my boyfriend, bought a big SUV, and discovered fast food.

My lifestyle changed drastically with that move. I would go through the drive-through just to get coffee. I would drive to the gym, stop before I broke into a sweat on the treadmill, then drive to work, where sat on my butt all day. After work, convinced that I was too tired to work out, I would sit in front of the TV for the night and snack away. My meal portions got larger in an attempt to match my boyfriend's portions.

Over eight months, I gained more than thirty pounds. It's not that I didn't see what was happening to me; it's that I chose to deny it. If someone had asked me back then if I was active, I would immediately have answered yes, without hesitation. But I knew deep down that wasn't true.

It was easy for me to deny that I had lost control. I had subconsciously chosen not to keep up those healthy habits and had elected to replace them with rationalizations and complacency. Ultimately I had selected to be fat instead of fit. Sound familiar? If I had chosen to see it, I would have been forced to make drastic changes. I honestly thought it was easier to be fat than it was to be fit.

By the start of 2001 -- weighing the most I had ever weighed at 178 pounds -- I was resigned to being an unfit, fat girl. I blamed it on everything but myself: genetics, suburban life, age. You name it and I blamed it. I was resigned to a life of buying clothes from the back of the rack where they keep the big-girl sizes. I worked hard to make sure that before somebody took a photo of me, I had a chance to cover my stomach. (As you can see in one of the photos, I always had a purse or a sweater in front of my belly.) I would wear layer upon layer in the hope that it would cover up my thighs and butt. I actually have few photos from that time in my life; I truly hated getting in front of the camera. Perhaps if you take a look at your photo albums, you will find the same thing.

What was the breaking point? Ironically, it happened after one of the happiest days of my life. My boyfriend, bless his soul, created an elaborate surprise for his marriage proposal. It was romantic, surprising (although I did get my nails done just in case), and fun. He proposed in front of the house where we'd first met in California, seven years earlier. We spent the next day tasting wine and taking photos in the vineyards. Once again, I was all covered up. From the double chin down, I didn't want anyone to see me.

I returned home on cloud nine. All my friends were excited and we spent hours at lunch discussing my dream dress and the perfect place to hold the wedding. Weight forgotten, I felt that I would be the most beautiful bride ever and that this feeling would last forever. It did last ... that is of course until I went dress shopping.

My girlfriends and I planned to go from shop to shop trying on all the dress styles, hoping to find the dress that would make me look as beautiful as any bride could look, set out that morning with high hopes of finding the perfect dress.

But that never happened. I couldn't fit into any of the dresses. My thighs were too big, my back was too large, and my hips were certainly too wide. The salesclerk would stand behind me holding the dress up, since it wouldn't zip up past my lower back. After hours of torture, I went home and cried. I was not going to be the beautiful blushing bride I had envisioned for years. I went to bed that night feeling utterly destroyed. I had nightmares about my big fat body. The idea of walking down the aisle was no longer exciting or even appealing -- it was a living nightmare!

The next morning I woke up feeling frustrated and depressed, turning to my usual routine of making coffee and breakfast. As I was putting cream in my coffee and butter on my toast, I realized that I could change how I looked and felt. I could become that beautiful, radiant bride who was hiding inside. I was solely responsible for changing my lifestyle. At that moment, I knew that my routine, my habits, and my complacency had to change ... Continues...

    Bootcamp 360 for Brides: A Complete Fitness Program: The Few, the Proud, the Fit

    You heard me right. In 4 months I lost 45 pounds and went from wearing the XL to the Medium and sometimes even a small. I love this workout regimen. I think what makes it different aren't the fantastic exercises and nutritional sections but the fact that it really helps you with the motivation. I knew I needed to exercise more and eat less but I didn't do it until I bought this book. I love the excuses vs reason page! I recommend this book for brides, sisters, mothers and anyone that wants to lose weight for good! I am on the 'active duty' part of the book and I plan to keep it off!
