Broomfield Fitness Boot Camp Challenge Winner

As many of you know, The Dojo of Karate & Fitness ran a Fitness Boot Camp Challenge during the last 4 week cycle.

Basically, we challenged our athletes to follow our nutritional plan, workout 3 days per week in our boot camp and train on their own during the week too.

By doing so, we guaranteed they would lose at least 1 inch around their waist and / or hips.

In addition, we took everyone’s body fat percentage, as we used that number as our baseline and used the value to determine a winner in our contest.

The winner would receive 1 free month of training in our fitness boot camp.

The best part about this contest was that our athletes really started to take their training a bit more serious and rooting for each other when they would retest during PFT Day (Physical Fitness Training Day).

Plus, Coach Lozano was extremely happy on how all of his athletes tried their best during every group fitness class.

So, the winner of the Fitness Boot Camp Challenge was Marival G. from Brighton, Colorado.  She lost 1.6% body fat, dropped 3.5 lbs, went down 1.5 inches around her hips, and shaved 25 seconds off her 1 mile run… in just 4 weeks!

She has made a lifestyle change by being dedicated in her training, diet, and habits.

Congratulations Marival!!

Broomfield Fitness Boot Camp Results

Here is an example of our Boot Campers getting immediate results in simply 4 weeks of training hard, following our nutrition plan, and having fun.

Below is Sheri’s results. The first set of numbers are from the week 1, while the 2nd set of numbers are from week 4. She’s going to continue her training too because she’s PROUD of her results!!!


Notice that Sheri improved her 2 minute push-ups from only performing 8 to improving it by nearly 1 1/2 times to 22 push-ups in 2 minutes.

Now, just wait until you see what happens in another 4 weeks…

The next one is from Marival…

She’s already making a lifestyle change by training on her boot camp off days, eating healthy and getting her boyfriend to participate in the sessions too. This has not become a family change, rather than an individual goal.

Finally, we have Heather, who has a made a lifestyle change by joining our Family Martial Arts program with her son and significant other. So, she’s been training pretty hard in our classes, but wanted to get back into running shape for the Summer.

Pretty amazing stuff… Oh, and by the way, those push up aren’t a mistake… she cranked those numbers out.

Westminster Health & Fitness Boot Camp Launches New Time Slot

After high demands of incorporating an evening Fitness Boot Camp, The Dojo of Karate and Fitness will launch a new time slot starting in April 2010.

Fitness Boot Camp Instructor and Certified Personal Trainer, Javier Lozano, Jr. is the owner and Chief Instructor of The Dojo of Karate and Fitness. A premier martial arts and fitness school serving residents in the Westminster, Broomfield, and Thornton area.

“Many of the parents at our school have been requesting an evening Fitness Boot Camp, and we were just having trouble fitting it into the schedule” says Javier. “But we made a few adjustments, and were able to find a time slot.”

The new time slot will start on April 13th from 8:00pm to 8:45pm, and take place every Tuesdays and Thursdays for a 4 week session.

Their fitness program is called the Fighting Fit2 Boot Camp Fitness Program (TM), and it has been taking the country by storm.

Founder and National Director, Michael D. Massie is the creator of the F2 Fitness Boot Camp, and has been in the martial arts and fitness industry for over 25 years. He designed this boot camp with the mind-set of getting the best results in a short period of time.

What makes Fighting Fit2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) so different from the others across the Denver Metro area?

Where do we start!

For starters, the F2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) is taught by Javier Lozano, Jr., a former World Champion fighter and Certified Personal Trainer under AFAA. He has a solid understanding of how the muscles work, and what types of exercises will deliver results to help build lean and toned muscles. He has also trained in the martial arts for 20 years and continues to train regularly.

Under his watchful supervision, he coaches and encourages you from the beginning to the end, and takes a passion in helping you meet your fitness goals. Javier also uses an accountability system in all of his boot camps and demands only the best effort from everyone. But still encourages people to have fun.

The next thing that sets the F2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) a notch ahead from other boot camps is their actual program.

They constantly use muscle confusion during every session. Meaning, their exercises are never the same, therefore the body can not adapt and plateau.

“Every time you come to class, we have a new workout” says Javier. “Even though it may be working the same muscle groups, the actual workout is different, and it can get other smaller muscle groups involved. Let’s face it, variety is the spice of life, and exercising is no different.”

Javier has incorporated exercises that use body-weight resistant, medicine balls, resistant bands, kettlebells, and sandbags, just to name a few.

By using all of these training tools, equipment, and more, boot campers never know what the next exercise will be.

They also use interval training during the cardio portion of their workouts. Basically, this involves you performing short bursts of exercises for a short period of time.

The beauty of interval training is that you will continue to burn calories 24-36 hours AFTER your workout.

However, probably the biggest difference that sets the Fighting Fit2 Fitness Boot Camp Program apart from the pack is their unique and powerful nutrition guide.

“Our motto is, ‘you can not out train a bad diet.’ I make sure to tell everyone that joins our boot camp to follow the guide because they will see results within 4 weeks. If they do not follow our nutrition plan, they will not see the results that others have experienced” says Javier.

The best part, they do not charge extra for the nutrition plan. This is apart of your membership when training in the F2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM)

Are you curious to see how great the Fighting Fit2 Fitness Boot Camp (TM) really is?

Javier allows everyone to try 1 free class before enrolling in a 4 week session. However, he highly recommends you signup for 3 sessions, or 12 weeks in order to get the results you desire.

Fitness Goals – Are You Being Realistic About Your Goals?

Personally, I would love to be a professional snowboarder that traveled all over the world riding some of the biggest mountains, best snow, and get all the free swag that comes with it…

But… unfortunately that isn’t Realistic.

To set a Realistic goal it must represent an objective towards which you are both willing and capable of achieving.

Now, we’re not talking about EASY, rather do-able.

To achieve a Realistic goal, it must be challenging, however, you should be able to accomplish it.

An example of a Realistic Fitness Goal would be losing 1 pound per week, until you reach your ultimate goal of 50 pounds.

If you calculate that correctly, you should be able to Realistically surpass this goal in about 1 year.

When you are setting these Realistic goal, again, create a plan on how you’re going to do it.  This will give you an idea on how realistic it can actually be.

For instance, going back to fitness, your goal can be to join a Fitness Boot Camp for 2 days per week, and workout at the gym, or at home 3 days a week.

In addition, you would need to accompany the fitness portion of your training with a good, healthy, and balanced diet in order to lose 1 pound per week.

Remember, if the goal is just too difficult, because you may get overly ambitious, re-evaluate your goals… and than get back on track.  Don’t give up so easily.  Goals are meant to push you, but not set you back.

If you would like to join Colorado’s BEST Fitness Boot Camp call 303.920.4500 or email us at: [email protected].

Our Boot Camps service residents in the Broomfield, Westminster, Thornton, Erie, and Denver area.  And, our program is designed to give you results!  You’ll have fun, get a GREAT workout, and feel better about yourself.

Until Next Time!


Fitness Goals – Is Your Goal Measurable?

Believe it or not, this is a common mistake by many goal setters.

Making your goal Measurable is quite important because this is what will continue to drive you in achieving your goals.  It’s basically your motor.  If you see progress, you will continue to push.

A great way to see if your goal is Measurable is to ask yourself these questions: How much? How many? How will I know when it is accomplished?

That way, you can see progress.

For instance, you can measure weight lose by pounds using a scale or a tape measure around the waist.

Whatever the case is, measure it!

The Dojo of Karate always Measures your goals.  Most people join our Fitness Boot Camp because they want to lose weight, get in shape, feet better, and just have more confidence in themselves.

Well, Boot Campers are always given goals by measuring their progress through Physical Fitness Training Days, taking measurements of their body, and calculating weight and body composition.  From there, you are able to establish reasonable and measurable goals because you are given a baseline.

Plus, all of our Boot Camps are put on a nutritional plan that is designed to help you meet your measurable goals.  Our motto is:

You Can’t Out Train A Bad Diet

The Dojo of Karate offers fitness and exercise classes to residents of Broomfield, Westminster, Thornton, Erie, and Denver.

If getting fit again is a goal of yours, please contact The Dojo of Karate at: 303.920.4500 or email us at: [email protected]
