Childcare now available at Bootcamp

Need something to do with your kids while you sweat it out at my Mpls bootcamp? Now I’m offering childcare. There are already kids rooms at the church, and I have enlisted an experienced childcare worker to watch your lil ones. It’s $5 for the one child, $8 for 2, or $12 for 3. If you have more than 3 just keep adding on $4 per child. You must contact me in advance to reserve your spot – and it’s first come first serve, so the farther in advance you contact me, the better. There is always a chance that the childcare worker won’t be available and if there’s a lot of requests I’ll need to make sure I have enough kid-watchers to keep them safe!

Boot Camp Halloween Bash

I’m throwing a Halloween Boot Camp Bash!  This will be a No Candy party with healthy treats instead.  Wear a costume to 6pm or 7pm Boot Camps for an *even more fun than usual* workout.  Halloween party music is prepped and ready!  If you haven’t been to Boot Camp in 6 months or more, come for free.  Otherwise, it’s $12 to drop in, or a good time to start a month ($75 cash/check) or 3 month ($215) commitment to your fitness and health!  While I’m throwing prices around, an even better deal is the ongoing EFT (electronic funds transfer) at only $60/month.  More info on Boot Camp can be found here.  Oh yeah, and it is at 100 W. 46th Street in the basement of Solomon’s Porch church.  Looking forward to seeing all your creative costumes!  I wanna see a Jane Fonda costume! 😉

BCOR

I began a partnership with BCOR (Bootcamp of the Rockies) in October 2011 and for months was satisfied with the new people I was meeting in bootcamp and the compensation and service I received from BCOR.  Basically, BCOR had the ability to market to a very large audience through Groupon, Living Social, and other means not available to a very small business (sole proprietor) like myself.  They also managed registering and selling to my many new boot campers.  Sometimes location, directions, or other important information would not get to these new clients, but I brushed it off as minor.  Over two months ago I received my last payment from BCOR, while they continued to register and send new members to my boot camp.  Since then, I sent at least a hundred emails, facebook messages, online support requests, tweets, facebook comments, and even a Better Business Bureau complaint.  The tone of the messages got angrier and more frustrated as time went on, as you could guess.  In mid-September I officially ended the partnership and shared the situation with my bootcamp members.  Seven members had signed up through BCOR and had been paying them monthly; they also were frustrated and disappointed to hear that I wasn’t getting my cut of their payments.  I calculated that BCOR owes me $800, and had actually been shorting me since February 2012. Finally on October 1 I got an email from the CEO of BCOR that BCOR is bankrupt.  I’m not sure if this singular email is enough proof that they are bankrupt, what if they just made it up to get me to stop badmouthing them all over the internet?  I also don’t know if it is worth it at this point to pursue any legal action…

Anyway, the point of all this is to explain to anyone holding a Living Social or Groupon voucher for BCOR, that I will honor the deal that you bought.  Living Social and Groupon should refund your money if you request, and I will charge you whatever you paid for the deal (either $20 for 1 month or $35 for 6 weeks).  This offer is not available for returning boot campers and is only available to those who bought the Living Social or Groupon deal.  I’d still love to meet you and help you get your boot camp workouts!
