The Seniors of Virtual Bootcamp

It is never too late to start taking better care of yourself regardless of your age. Exercising regularly is an important habit you must practice to age well and live longer. Since starting Virtual Bootcamp in mid-March and the 30-day challenge, five seniors have been participating on a regular basis and have reaped the benefits.

Renee (Age 65)

Over the past 30 days, I’ve made a 360 degree turnaround in my outlook on the significance of having a healthy mind, body and spirit.  Participating in the WLFS virtual bootcamp is a lifesaver.  While teleworking since the onset of COVID-19, I’ve recommitted to working out at least 5 to 6 days a week, doing some form of weight resistance, cardio and deliberately working up a sweat while training.  At the end of the day, I devote at least 15 minutes to log daily meals and water consumption.  I’ve partnered with myself to do better.

The WLFS and HealthReelPro apps are most beneficial in tracking my progress in losing the excess weight and unwanted inches around my waistline.  I have a little ways to go to “see” the difference in my overall appearance.  I have enjoyed the informational teleconferences with Walter and the health experts and the one-on-one weekly check-ins.  Every day, I’m encouraged to be a part of a health-oriented community.

Ruth (Age 69)

I am age 69 year with two replacement knees and hips, so it has been a challenge for me in these 30 days. I usually walk or do water aerobics three days a week, but since everything was closed, I turned to an alternate way of working out. This has been different for me. First I committed to during the 30 day challenge, and then I wanted to change my mind. I just didn’t think I could do the exercises. Second, I had to give up some of the junk food that I would eat several times during the week, that was hard.

After confronting those issues and discussing with Walter that I couldn’t do certain exercises, there were no more excuses.  Walter would modify the exercises for me. I have found that since taking the 30 days challenge, I don’t hurt like I use too and I actually look forward to the coaching and virtual bootcamp. All that said and done, I have lost 5 pounds since starting and that is a milestone for me. I really want to keep the momentum going.

B. Keane (Age 72)

I have thoroughly enjoyed the 30 Day Fitness Challenge. I was hesitant at first that I could make a significant change as I  had not done any Bootcamp type activity or watched my diet for some time. To my surprise, Walter’s formula worked. He encouraged all participants and made it seem doable. In fact, it has been so doable that I have lost 6 pounds at this point, more than halfway to my goal weight. In addition, I have more energy, a positive attitude and I look better in my clothes. Walter Lewis has made a difference in my life. (Please don’t tell my husband!).

Marie D. (Age 68)

Virtual Bootcamp has been so beneficial to my mental Health. I have been more consistent in the virtual classes than the outdoor bootcamp. Thanks Walter!

Glenn Spitzer (Age 74)

I show up to three to four sessions a week and do what I can. I am amazed at what I am able to do now compared to when I started. I am so grateful for virtual bootcamp.
