I enlisted in Beastanetics in an effort to revamp my life. I’m not a gym rat or someone that loves to work out, so this was a challenge. I was nervous at first, worried that there would be military-style screaming and a drill sergeant pressing his boot in my back while I did push ups, but that was not so.
I have met lovely, fun, amazing people who are supportive and committed to giving well-rounded and intense physical training for people of all levels. In the same class are marathon runners (I am not) but I can keep up and I feel the program is fair to everyone.
There is a strong sense of community too! You’ll get email updates of what the other students are up to.
I think worlds of this program and am looking forward to continuing it.
Beastanetics Boot Camp might not be the right name for this. I’d call it “The Amazing Workout with Great People run by Lovely Folks” but that doesn’t roll off the tongue.
This type of workout is perfect for me. When I work out alone I tend to call it a day the second I get tired. And the idea of getting a trainer just sounds unnecessary. I want someone to tell me what to do, and how long to do it for and I want to be suffering with at least 5 other people.
One thing the folks behind Beastanetics do better than any other boot camp I’ve been to, is create a wonderful community vibe. They put a big effort into making it very social and that goes way beyond the workouts.
They really put together a great way to stay fit and meet new people.
After a horrifically long date with peanut butter cup ice cream and cat lady-esque isolation, I finally bit the bullet and signed up for Beastenatics. Cracking the High Intensity Interval Training secret code was intriguing enough for me. Who cares how much I sucked in my gym-bunny outfit — at least I got my butt there every session. And it worked. I can for-sure glide into my favorite jeans! I’m addicted to endorphins in the morning, which is a feat in and of itself! And I like the people that I work out with. If there were a language to Beastanetics, it would start with morning chirps, slight growls upon the discovery of the insanity of the workout, progressively grueling grunts, gasps for air, and then satisfied purrs when it’s all over. Because Beastanetics is all about narrowly escaping the saber-toothed tiger and making awesome friends in the treehouse.
Beastanetics is awesome. I enjoy it and have seen good results from doing it. Tim Haft, the dude in charge, has designed a really great program. It’s a modified version of the Tabata Training Protocols, which are a form of HIIT (High-intensity interval training). Look them up if you’re interested in the science. Basically, you work your ass off for a short period of time…and I mean really work. No joke. This is more effective than “moderate” exercising over a long period. You WILL see results. You will also find it surprisingly enjoyable. It’s also outdoors, which is awesome.
All of my previous experience with group exercise has left me feeling like a major under-achiever. Beastanetics has changed that. I look forward to each class and with each class I get stronger and faster. I’ve never seen such a dramatic change in my physical and mental health before. I highly recommend it.
Looking for a serious workout, but short on time and don’t want to join a gym? Look no further. This class WILL change how you look and feel, plus it’s a fun bunch, so I usually have some laughs in addition to getting a great workout. And I appreciate that it’s not a screamo trainer routine because, seriously, who needs that? No one is there to slack off and we challenge ourselves and each other to push that extra bit. Tim is a solid, experienced trainer with advanced knowledge of physiology. He’s committed to his students and pays close attention to form.
