Monterey Bay Moves’ First Bootcamp Was a HIT!


Monterey Bay Moves, Marina’s new personal training and group training fitness business, is happy to announce that March Madness Bootcamp is a success!

Bootcamp participant and Local Administrative Support Coordinator at CSUMB Haven Brearton is enjoying her experience :

“I have to say I’m loving bootcamp so far – already recruited several coworkers for next month! Feels so good to finally be moving again during the week. I suppose I shouldn’t tell about how badly my shoulders hurt the day and night after those pike pushups! But I like pushing myself!”


With several community members registered – and currently crushing their health goals -, it has been decided that Monterey Bay Moves’ bootcamp will become a regular service on their schedule with a 10-week semester. The owner and head trainer Elizabeth Plante explains her choice:

“Our very first bootcamp was meant to be a test to see if there was a need in the Marina community for the group trainings I have been dreaming of leading. Our first cohort is diverse in age and fitness levels and that’s what makes it extra fun and challenging for me as a trainer! They’re so inspiring ! They all support each other when the training is tough and later laugh and chat at the end of each round…. This is promising. I feel like living a healthy lifestyle is something that can rally the Marina community and participate into making our beach town even more prosperous.”

Registrations for the 10-week bootcamp semester have already started. Bootcamp sessions start on April 13 and end June 20.

More Options Offered this Spring

Mind and Body Balanced

Because health and fitness is about so much more than doing push ups, running sprints and dieting, Monterey Bay Moves’ bootcamps feature mindfulness coaching sessions to help make the changes in participants’ lifestyle stick. Among other things, mindfulness coach Oscar Flores explains how to not rely solely on external factors for shifts in eating and fitness habits, but on internal indicators, such as being aware of negative and unhelpful thoughts around and during the times that people exercise and eat.



All sessions are 55 minutes, Spring Schedule is as follows:

– Monday 5:30pm at Locke-Paddon Park (meet at Marina Library Parking Lot)
