The most diverse journey you will ever have”
What to say about Marco’s bootcamp.
It’s been exactly two months ago that I flew to Spain to Marco’s Bootcamp. It took me long to write a review because it is not easy to tell about it in a few words.
Before I came, friends and people told me I was crazy to waste my holiday on pain and sweat.
Turned out to be the best decision I’ve ever made.
The day I arrived I didn’t have a clue what would expect me, but I was ready to face anything that would come up on my way.
I was picked up at the airport and driven to the hotel complex in Andalucia. The people were nice since the beginning, and I felt very welcomed.
And there he arrived, Marco the coach. The person I will probably start to hate in the next two weeks.
You can’t describe Marco, you rather have to have him on front of you. But he will be your best friend and worst enemy at the same time.
The greeting was warm and funny, we had a good chat and then the big news came:
“You’ll probably be all alone in the camp for the next two weeks, so far I didn’t have any other requests.”
Baaaaaam, in ya face. I surely didn’t expect that. So it turned out I would be all alone with Marco, personal training without wanting it.
I cried a lot. I sweated even more. But I never gave up. And Marco was the main reason I went through it with great results, and even a better mind set in the end.
It wasn’t easy for Marco either, I wasn’t an easy client either. When it came to completing exercises, it wasn’t a problem. The mental training part was probably pain for him.
I was very stubborn, and convinced of my ideas and beliefs. But he still stayed, so he deserves a lot of respect for that.
The exercises were challenging, even very much challenging, but diverse which was very helpful. We did everything from weightlifting to swimming and mountain biking. I hated the jogging though…but somehow I started to like it in the end
He surely made me burn my fat, and sometimes my mental patience. But I did it. And I am so proud of it.
And what about food? Well… AWESOME. Don’t expect hospital food or just three green beans for dinner. NO, expect the best freakin’ food you will ever have.
We had a personal chef who cooked just for us, and I can tell you: people were jealous of our food.
You will not miss food or crave for unhealthy junk, because you will adore so much this nutritious and tasty food that you will forget about Nutella & Co. We had always a three course lunch and dinner, including desert. How awesome is that.
Marco and me became good friends in the end, even if in certain moments I didn’t want to talk to him. He will push you, but he is doing that only because you want it.
Since I returned home, I still feel changes and I try to adapt them in my daily life.
The biggest thing I learned was Marco’s phrase: You are afraid of what you want the most.
And he was right. He still is right, and I am still fighting to get there where I want.
A boot camp is not fun or a fashion thing to do, or a fat loss camp. It’s a fight, a constant fight with yourself. You will go through emotions you never had before. You will cry, trust me. You will sleep a lot, and certainly be tired as hell.
But if you are willing to go through all this, it will be the best thing that ever happened to you. And Marco…you will be just happy that it was him taking you through this journey, and not somebody else.
