The Celebrate Life Series continues with another installment of "Peak Performance."
When your discerning clientele expects nothing less than stellar service and the best possible performance you can deliver throughout their entertainment experience; staying fit is not only helpful… it’s mandatory.
This time around, I was inspired by Staff Sergeant Gamba from The United States Marine Corps. He conducts an incredibly challenging Boot Camp class on Wednesdays mornings at 9:15 am and then on Saturdays at 9:00 am at the Randolph YMCA. RandolphYMCA.org
Now, this ain't your typical bootcamp-lite or hokey-themed aerobics class where they do a couple of extra push-ups and give it a cool name. Nope. This is a legit, Marine Boot Camp simulation training experience for civilians by the real deal. Staff Sergeant Gamba will challenge your mental and physical limits while simultaneously promoting the coveted core values of the Marines and ensuring your safety.
Try not to freak out or get too intimidated. You are allowed to stop and catch your breath when necessary or opt out of any exercise you are not comfortable with. There is no scrubbing toilets with your toothbrush for bad behavior like in the movies. :) BUT... Don't. Quit. Staff Sergeant Gamba doesn't like quitters. Nobody does. (and you'll be surprised who can't handle class and who excels.)
Having an ever-evolving, diversified wellness program and surrounding yourself with fabulous people to keep you motivated, accountable and on track- is the key if you want to continue waking up early in the mornings and maintain peak performance levels. It was great to have Mike Walter, Jordan Marshall, Terri Contaxis, Allison Freeman, Amanda Fisher, Christina Jones, and some of my super-cool dedicated friends from the Y join us for this exhilarating and inspirational afternoon session.
Special thanks to Bill Lamia, Kathy Lamia and Kathy Fisher from the YMCA for welcoming my colleagues once again to their impressive facility. We’re looking forward to our next session.
To Staff Sergeant Gamba and all the Marines past and present, thank you for your time, service to our country and EVERYTHING you do. Godspeed.
Health and Happiness,
