Bringing Out the Big Guns - Fitness Ops Boot Camp Keeps New Year's Resolutions

Share Article

Fitness boot camps are popping up all over the nation. People are searching for something to give them accountability, and having a military-style fitness instructor motivate you while you exercise gets the job done very effectively. Our society has been plagued with the ?instant gratification? craze for so long, but we are now swinging the other way. Boot camps are ushering back the basics of sweat and hard work. Booyah!

Coach Fara Barnes is bringing out the big guns in Alabama, which currently ranks #1 with the highest percentage of obese adults in America. Barnes is bringing Alabama it?s first fitness boot camp program in February. Using her prior military background, martial arts experience and personal training certifications, she is ready to fire up her fitness arsenal, a.k.a. Fitness Ops.

Coach Fara moved to Montgomery, Alabama in the spring of 2004. After visiting several health clubs and gyms, Barnes felt that many clubs were simply trying to drive in the masses and build up memberships. In fact, one of the most well-known clubs was using a popular book as their personal training program.

Over the summer Barnes started her own fitness business, The Right Fit, and joined forces with Grand Master Yun S. Chung, ex-marine and founder of the American Taekwondo Foundation (ATF). Barnes directed and instructed a successful kickboxing and strength and conditioning program, but she wanted to do even more for the close-knit community of Montgomery.

Barnes expanded her business with the internet to include online personal training over the holidays. In the meantime, she created ?Fitness Ops?, an intense 4-week boot camp fitness program. Fitness Ops, like military boot camps, puts the focus on basic training. Coach Fara has a few rules too - no excuses, no fads, no spandex and no whining. She believes that this is the future of fitness. ?You don?t need fancy clothes, high-tech equipment or over-rated, impersonal clubs?these are just distractions,? states Barnes, ?My clients want to keep their New Year's resolutions, and Fitness Ops will exceed their goals and get results.?

Molly Raymond, a client, had this to say about Coach Fara, ?I know I am stronger, more confident, and in better touch with my body than I have been in years. The program has been great, but I have to say Coach Fara has provided me with more than I could have ever expected. I know I could not have gotten this far on my own. She has taught me that resistance, in any area in my life, is an opportunity to become stronger.?
