Desert Boot Camp VehicleWhat is the Desert Adventure Boot Camp?

A four-week outdoor program of fitness instruction, nutritional counseling and motivational training. You will be inspired and have fun while participating in a fantastic workout led by Certified Adventure Fitness Trainer, Alison Busher and Bruce Busher.  Each day, camp will be one hour in length and start exactly at the appointed start time on the calendar page.

What if I'm not very physically fit?

NOBODY will be left behind or asked to complete more than they are capable of doing safely. Nor will anybody go home unchallenged! Women of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate. Each day will slightly increase in intensity. You will inspire and be inspired by others.

What types of exercises are included in the program?

Exercises include: core conditioning, short distance running (less than one mile), plyometrics, muscular strength, jumping rope, circuit training, Kickboxing, hiking, obstacle courses, PAR course, bodyweight exercises, Pilates, games, surprises, and more!

How often will we meet?

For the 4-Day Boot Camp, participants will meet every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday for one hour during the four-week program.  All participants will be expected to arrive on time. Early Bird Camp starts at 5:30 AM and Morning Camp starts at 8:30 AM.  Saturday classes will start at 6:00am.

When and where does the next camp start?

See our annual calendar for the most up-to-date locations and times. The Desert Adventure Boot Camp meets at La Quinta Park, one of the largest parks and recreation areas in La Quinta. *During the summer camps the Boot camp is held at the The Renaissance Esmeralda Resort Hotel in Indian Wells - the address is 44400 Indian Wells Lane.

What do I need to bring?

An exercise mat, small hand weights (5-8 lbs.), water bottle, running shoes, mittens/gloves and a sense of adventure. You can purchase hand weights at any Target, Big Five or Sports Authority. There are several businesses that offer special incentives for our campers. You will be given details for participating businesses prior to the start of camp.

So what will I gain in camp? Why should I come?

Adventure Boot CampYou will make a dramatic improvement in your physical and mental well-being. In addition, you'll meet great people who share your same passion for acquiring a more healthy body and mind. You will be finished with your training before the rest of the world has even gotten started!  When you follow camp with a healthy meal and hot shower, you will feel unstoppable. This camp goes so much further than the 5-10 pounds you will lose. The effects are so far reaching into all areas of your life as you begin to love the reflection that stares back at you in the mirror. Reclaim your life and feel better than you have in years - maybe even decades!

Adventure Boot CampWhat is the cost (investment in myself)?

Each four-week boot camp has a registration fee of $279 (3-Day) and $349 (4-Day). That's twelve - sixteen hours of instruction! That's only about $21.00 per hour. Where else can you get premiere or cutting edge fitness instruction for that incredible price? Personal trainers can typically charge $60 to $170 per hour for their services - this is a great opportunity to receive motivating fitness instruction by a certified personal trainer for just a fraction of the cost.

When Should I Register?

We are now accepting pre-registration for the next camp. You will get your camp evaluation by your coach at the same time as the nutrition talk, which is held at the Renaissance Esmeralda Hotel in Indian Wells at 6pm on the first Wednesday of camp. Once we receive your registration you will be notified to make an appointment. We do not accept late registration. You must be registered before the start of camp.
