gay boot camp pullups

So, now it’s over. Last week was the final of the four weeks of the Gay Boot Camp Series.

Laura and Josh, the two trainers, were as friendly and un-drill instructor like as ever, but they did push us. Armed (footed) with the new pair of workout shoes that Laura promised me would enable me to run without injury, I managed to make most of the seemingly endless treks around the Greenwich Village pier.

In retrospect, what was the hardest single thing we did? That’s easy: Making myself a human wheelbarrow and moving across the lawn on my hands while a partner held my feet. Trust me, it’s even worse than it sounds. The military push-ups, where you lift a weight in each arm between push-up, is also pretty bad–even worse when you high-five a partner facing you… Read the rest of Steve Weinstein’s article here

Week 2 at Gay Mens Boot Camp


The program starts at 6 a.m., which is an ungodly hour for someone who usually falls asleep between 2 and 3 a.m., and, as noted earlier, that is still the biggest obstacle. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays–the three days of the camp–I find myself dragging by about, oh, 8 a.m. And every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday night, I vow to be in bed by 10 p.m…. READ THE REST OF STEVE’S POST HERE…..

pullupsWhen I got the email about Gay Boot Camp, I admit I was intrigued. Here was a program that guaranteed. As a veteran of gym-going since the mid-’80s, I confess to a bit of gym burnout.

It’s not that I go to the gym and just lift weights, or even lift weights and go on a cardio machine. I have what by any standard would be a varied workout. I have regularly taken spin, yoga, step, cardio, “urban rebouding” (trampoline), kick-boxing, and stretching classes. Among others.

But trudging to the gym gets tiring day after day–especially after 20 years! And, although I’m not as hopeless about my appearance as the average gay man, Read the rest of the article here…
