For people wanting to get in shape and looking for a comfortable, judge-free zone to do so, Christa Resavy says Burn Boot Camp in Clifton Park is the place.
She said this fitness arena provides results through a workout that people will want to maintain for life. Originally from Glenville, Resavy is running the Clifton Park location from her North Carolina home. She said she is excited to see the Capital District experience this new take on getting, and staying, in shape.
Resavy said after attending the College of Saint Rose, she met her husband and began traveling across the country for his career. She said throughout various moves, she was able to find friends and connect through exercise programs. After tearing her ACL while in her current location of Raleigh, N.C., she said she began to look around for a place that would allow her to slowly get back into her love of physical fitness. She found a local Burn Boot Camp, and immediately felt it was the perfect match for her.
“As soon as I walked in, I knew it was a welcoming, encouraging place that would be perfect for me, and for life,” said Resavy.
Resavy said the Clifton Park location will be a 4,000-square-foot facility in Parkwood Plaza, set to open in a few weeks, after final inspections are complete. She said Burn Boot Camp has locations across the country and each location follows the same exercise routine each day, providing consistency.
She said membership is interchangeable, so traveling members are always welcome to walk in. One of the aspects of the business that Resavy likes is hat it is family friendly. Locations have childcare, not daycare, that allows for moms to come in and work out while children are close by, being safely cared for.
“What happens many times in moms who join Boot Camp then say they want to help with childcare while other moms work out. Then this turns into a community of people helping and supporting each other It’s amazing how it works,” said Resavy.
The philosophy of Burn Boot Camp is to maximize results in just 45 minutes, with an average burn of 700 calories per session. There is no pre-registration required. They offer guidance with nutrition, performance, lifestyle or weight loss.
The Clifton Park location is equipped with trainers, an operations manager and a front desk person. Resavy said the goal of the staff is to provide members will a feeling that everyone cares about them, not just as a client but as a person.
“We want people to walk in and immediately feel comfortable, on a first-name basis,” said Resavy.
Burn Camp is located at 1758 Route 9 in Clifton Park Its website is burnbootcamp.com or on facebook at www.facebook.com
