I often hear, “what you did is impossible!” It’s really not! I lost 86lbs in a year by having a strong balance between exercise, proper nutrition and high quality supplements. I went to Bryan Daskam a year ago looking for help and listened to everything he recommended and bam! I saw results. Why? He knows his stuff, just like all of the other coaches in this group! LISTEN to what your coaches say and believe in it, respect the process and enjoy yourself! Detoxing has such a negative tone, I feel, but it doesn’t have to! Look at this detox as a jump start to a better you. You may feel tempted or struggle with temptation, especially beginning on, but that’s normal! Use your support team, that’s what this group is about! Keep up the awesome work everyone. What you are starting to do most people are too scared to do instead they make excuses, they hold themselves back.. Don’t be that person, show them how strong you are. I guarantee that if you follow what your coaches say you will be successful in this! Remember, you didn’t put the weight on all at once and you’re not going to lose it all at once. RESPECT THE PROCESS AND ENJOY THE RIDE!!!! Cheers
We’ve been showing all females who have been getting results with the Big 3. Here’s a male for a change.
After 21 Days on the Detox Fax Shredder!
Lisa began our boot camp at about 142 lbs. Her goal weight was 125 lbs. She reached that by listening to our advice. The advice was to not depend on intense exercise alone to reach your goal. Putting in to place the Big 3 (Nutrition, Exercise and Supplements) is the shortest path to your goal. Unfortunately most of our new members think they can do it with exercise alone until they see that after 2 months of getting their butts kicked things haven’t changed all that much.
Both Brenda and Kerri Jo got stuck with their weight loss. Both began the accelerators to get them moving again. On top of that I added a little more good slow releasing carbs to their plan and this continues to keep them moving. Again, it’s all about the Big 3… Exercise, Nutrition and Supplementation. Oh, and in addition to that a good coach who knows how and when to make those slight nutritional adjustments. Help us out and begin telling your friends who live all throughout the Country that we can help then with the Big 3 without having to be here. Have them contact us.
Loni down 12 lbs in the first month. She’s implimented the Big 3 (Exercise, Nutrition and Supplementation) Results are easy when you put it all together. She’s right on track. Gaining muscle and losing fat the right way. Want more info contact us.
Late last year my wife began working with Bryan and Boot Camp with a Cause. She loved the workouts and the fitness education she received from Bryan and often encouraged me to give his workout a try. I kept refusing, assuming it was some girly kickboxing/jazzercise class that I wouldn’t be caught dead doing. My wife then changed her tactics (smart girl) and insisted that I would never be able to keep up with her and Bryan’s workouts and was therefore afraid to give it a try. I then had no choice but to man-up and prove her wrong and go to Bryan’s classes. I started attending Bryan’s class in December of 2012. The workout DID kick my butt, however Bryan was very encouraging and motivating without coming across as a drill sergeant, which gets old quick. I also noticed that Bryan spent a lot of time talking about nutrition. I had never taken a class from anyone who cared to talk specifically about nutrition and the benefits of eating clean. The information he gave made perfect sense and because Bryan was so adamant about clean eating, I decided to give the combo of his workouts and his nutritional advice a real try. It worked. In less than four months I lost 50% of my body fat and 20lbs. It was exciting to see and feel the changes. I’ve worked out my entire life and never have I seen such dramatic results and in such a short period of time. The nutritional information Bryan gives is information for life. It’s not a diet plan or a fad. The education I have received has changed the way I eat and will benefit me, my wife and our children throughout our lives. Bryan’s classes and nutritional expertise are worth every minute. If you give it his program a try and follow his advice you WILL see results. I truly feel blessed to have found Bryan and Boot Camp with a Cause. And yes…my wife was right again. D#*m it!!!
I have been coming to boot camp with Bryan for just over a year. When I started I had just began to really work hard with exercise and eating right. I’ve always been very active, but in the last 4 years had not paid attention to the food in which I was eating and had been slacking off when it came to exercise. I started on my own for a couple of months exercising 3 times a week and following the Paleo way of eating. At that point I knew I needed to step up. I started taking boot camp classes and was impressed with how comfortable everyone made me feel from the very beginning. Brian is such a great instructor! He spoke with me and wanted to know my goals and journey. He is great at pushing you right when you need it most yet being supportive and encouraging. Even after a year, he continues to make sure to check in weekly and see what he can do to help! I’ve lost 50 pounds since I joined boot camp with Brian and have never been so toned in my life. Being a part of this boot camp has made me realize how strong I can be and that I can keep staying in shape with the help of Brian and all the amazing people that I’ve met in class!!
Anne discusses what has made a difference in her getting results in only 5 short weeks. Why all of the sudden now vs. months on end without making any progress. Big 3 again? Serious about getting results discuss it with us.
I started attending Boot Camp with Darrell at the Largo Rec around the middle of June. I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into, but knew that I needed some help with working out and eating properly. A friend asked me to go with her and knowing I needed to get in better shape, I decided why not. After the first class, my body could certainly tell it got a good workout. And, with encouragement from Darrell, I have kept on going to class and receiving diverse training each workout. It has been about six weeks now and boy do I feel great. Those of us in the class really enjoy working out together and having Darrell as our instructor has been a key part of it. I can tell that I am getting stronger and more toned. I still have more work to do and plan on continuing with the program.
I am writing this though, because today I got an unexpected surprise. I work for the school board and have been off since starting my workouts with Boot Camp. Today I needed to go in to the school for a while. I put on some clothes that I hadn’t worn since the beginning of June and was shocked to find out how loose they were on me. In fact, I had to change my pants because the ones I originally was going to wear just looked too baggy on me. What a feeling of accomplishment I have especially after having my clothes be a little too big for me. I would recommend this program for anyone looking for a good workout program that employs a knowledgable staff as well as great advice on eating well.
I have always tried to exercise and eat healthy. However, my weight has gone up and down over the past ten years. Feeling good about myself has been like a rollercoaster ride! I began Bryan and Denise’s Boot Camp using the Groupon that was offered. I had no idea what I was about to get myself into. The first workout was a true eye-opener that I wasn’t as strong and fit as I thought. I continued the workouts throughout the Groupon period and began to feel better and better. I thought I learned how to work out myself and so when the Groupon expired, I thought I could work out on my own. Boy was I wrong! I realized that the key to challenging myself was in accountability to my trainers and fellow boot campers! I also missed the reinforcement of the benefits of eating the right foods at the right times. So, I returned to boot camp after a few short weeks and have been working out faithfully for the past four months. I am stronger, ten pounds lighter, and showing actual muscle tone. I highly recommend Boot Camp with a Cause because of the support and caring that Bryan and Denise extend to their clients.
One of our clients who had been coming to our boot camp for one year with little or no change until she took our advice and put the entire plan in play. That being the big 3 Exercise Nutrition and Supplementation. Even prior to participating with us she went to other boot camps for years with no change
Posted by Boot Camp with a Cause on Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Denise and Bryan have been training me for several months, I was extremely over weight and my body fat percentage was in the obese range. I was very intimidated when I started but they have both worked with me and adjusted my workouts to fit my capabilities. I have dropped 12% bodyfat in 4 months and I look totally different now. Bryan and Denise’s knowledge and skills out shine any other class I have taken in the past they have changed my life to something I didn’t think was ever possible.
I have been attending Boot Camp With a Cause for just under 2 months. I was 355lbs. I am down to 342lbs. I know pounds are not the thing to focus on, but when you are my size it is. Until the other day I went clothes shopping and found that I am DOWN 2 SIZES!!! So the scale might not show that much of a change, but clothes sure do. I never did measurements, I should have. I think I will now to see my changes in that way. I wanted to share this because so many people think they cannot do it. If I can, anyone can. Getting out of shape did not happen overnight, getting back in shape won’t happen overnight either. One day at a time!
I wanted to Thank Bryan and Darryl and EVERYONE, because everyone in every class I have been to is so very supportive. The hardest part is getting up out of bed and getting there everyday. From there, you are good to go!
This is the most life changing and amazing fitness choice I have ever made. I have worked out most of my adult life with my workouts becoming more and more ineffective. It is so easy to get trapped in our usual fitness routine. Running at a slow pace, lifting a few light weights. Still as time progressed I started putting on weight and feeling dissatisfied. Boot camp with a cause changed all that. The trainers really understand the science behind what they do. This is so important! Anyone can talk the talk. I have worked with other trainers and never, ever recieved these results. The workouts are very challeging but extremely effective. I feel so strong and really fit! Thanks Bryan!
I’ve been working out with Bryan and Denise for almost a year now at their WestChase location and I LOVE it! They’re are both motivating and encouraging and it always makes me want to push myself harder. The Bootcamp routines are never redundant or boring or just some routine. All of my muscles are worked each and every time I go. I love that there are different trainers and each one has their own technique but the results are always the same, a great workout! Not only are Bryan and Denise a driving force in your workout, they take the time to educate you on meals and the body and how our bodies process foods. They’re looking out for your entire well-being. They cater to all fitness levels but no matter where you are physically, you end up with an awesome, complete workout along with being challenged without feeling overwhelmed or that you can’t keep up. Not only are Bryan and Denise concerned about your physical well-being but yours and others spiritual well-being. I’ve been with them to feed the homeless on a Friday evening and it was an amazing feeling to be able to encourage someone else while handing them a plate of food.
I am glad I joined this Bootcamp with Bryan and Denise and I would recommend any one who’s looking for a great workout with great people, guaranteed results and an opportunity to support the community to join Bootcamp with a Cause!
I was frustrated with the same old routines at the gyms. I was frustrated with running. I found Bryan and Denise! I started on a 30 day special, and loved it so much that not only did I not stop, I talked about it to everyone and brought many friends!! It is a nice change from the same old routines, it is a great, self paced, motivating setting and a fabulous group of people. Helping charities and communities makes the efforts even better. And, results with this team are a given. Between the workouts and the nutritional information you learn, it doesn’t take long to either build a new and improved you! I am so glad they do what they, the way they do it – creative, inspiring, effective!
This is Jan. She came to use from another boot camp. She is 51 yrs. and was completely frustrated with not making progress. She was working out twice a day and eating what she thought was right. I did a quick analysis and identified what was holding her back. I balanced her supplements, exercise and nutrition and she went from 25% body fat to what is about 17%. I set a goal of 15% for her. If we would not have met she probably would never have figured out what the problem was. Jan, I appreciate you listening and doing what I instructed you to do.
Kerri Jo began with Boot Camp with a Cause at the beginning of of September 2013. As of January 1, 2014 she has lost 53 lbs. Over the past week she has finally implemented the Big 3 (exercise, nutrition and supplementation.) In one week’s time lost 1 dress size and 13 more lbs. She still has a way to go to reach her final destination but now her program is completely balanced. There is no need for anyone to get stuck when trying to reach their goal. If you may be stuck it’s probably due to lack of education an understanding of what needs to be fixed or balanced. Often times what our clients think is the solution is completely off base. Seek the advice of a professional but proceed with caution when selecting the right individual.
I have been working out with Denise & Bryan (and Darrell and Kelly and David…hope I didn’t leave anyone out) since October 2012. I can’t say enough great things about this Bootcamp…awsome workouts, extremely fun, great motivation, fabulous instructors. They encourage you to do your best, but go at your own pace. I am amazed at the physical milestones I have been able to accomplish, and look forward to many many more. Love you guys!! <3
If you are thinking about starting Boot Camp with a Cause – stop thinking and just do it! I feel so much stronger, healthier, and happier since starting boot camp. You will get results here as long as you are dedicated… and the trainers make it so easy to stay dedicated. I leave every morning dripping with sweat and it feels amazing. My one regret is that I waited so long to start.
A big part of my motivation for finally joining Boot Camp with a Cause was my wedding. I wanted to be able to happily look back at my wedding photos. So, I started classes 4 months before my wedding (5 days a week faithfully). I have photos of myself trying on wedding dresses before boot camp. I thought I looked pretty good! But, now the photos I have in my actual dress on the day of the wedding show me a totally different story. The dress I ended up wearing was 3 sizes smaller than the dresses I originally tried on. As a result I love my wedding photos and I felt like a beautiful bride. I am in the best shape of my life because of Boot Camp with a Cause and I have no intention of slowing down!
All it takes is one hour a day and clean eating. Don’t give up if you don’t see results right away. It takes a few weeks for your body to adjust. But, you will see and more importantly FEEL results before you know it. Thank you so much Bryan!!
In my family, I’m the youngest of four, but I’ve always been known as the “big sister” – but because of size. After a trip to the cardiologist, I was put on blood pressure medicine. My BMI put me in the “extremely obese” range, and I told that I was at risk for stroke. WAKE UP CALL! Made a decision that I needed to turn over a new leaf this year! I’m turning 49 at the end of the year, and I want to get off of my blood pressure medicine and start living a healthier life. “Fit and fabulous at 49” became my mantra.
Small changes have led to bigger changes. Since February, I’ve lost 25 pounds and 9 1/2 inches. My clothes are fitting better, my overall health has improved, and people are noticing! I now face my work day with more energy and a positive attitude thanks to Bryan. I think about the food I eat and make better food choices. I still do enjoy my weekends, but get right back to it on Monday morning.
I attend the 5:30 a.m. class in St. Pete. Retraining myself to get up at 4:45 a.m. to make it has (admittedly) been a challenge. Our class has all ages and sizes, male and female. Some are “true” athletes, while others like me, are just trying to be more healthy. I can’t always do every exercise, but have learned how to modify it so I can receive the maximum benefit for my ability. I’m the slowest at sprinting. And, you know what?? It’s O.K.!
I can only look forward to the next 6 months of this transformational journey! For the first time in my life, it’s about “me“!
I started Boot Camp With a Cause in April of 2012 when my wife approached me about finding a “Boot Camp” right around the corner of our Westchase townhome for time convenience. Her purpaose was to lose weight by our daughters wedding in June (which sounded pretty good to me), her plan was to do it at the 5:30 am class (which didn’t sound good to me). Nevertheless, I went and dont’t regret one single minute of it.
As I spent more time going the the boot camp I found that there was a special sense of care, not only for the body but also for the soul and the spirit of their clients. I noticed that there is a certain type of care and comradery for their clients that equated to passion for the success of peoples weight loss goals. The staff effortlessly and truly cares about the physical and emotional welfare of each individual through hard work, dedication, education and edification. I personally don’t care how much someone knows as much as me knowing how much they care and this what I saw. The owners and staff are educated, knowledgable, mythodical and stays on task with time for each session in awareness of their clients busy schedules. I visited other locations and found that these “core values” are consistantly practiced.
My success has been an encouraging one. For the past 30 years I’ve been working out trditional gyms doing traditional routines, that is until I started here. I’ve maintained proper weight control, gained invaluable information that has put me in the best physical condition in my life. I’m a 51 year old business owner and I endorse this boot camp for it’s integrity, love and didcation to leading their clients to a healthier lifestyle.
I encourage you to call today so you can have your own testimony.
After having a baby, working out at home wasn’t giving me the drive or jump start I needed to lose the baby weight (not fitting into my clothes helped a little). I found Bryan online and encouraged others to go with me. I was in good shape before my baby, but I can now say I’m in GREAT shape! I lost over 20lbs in six months and still going. (And now my clothes are too big). I workout at my own pace but am still being pushed and motivated by Bryan to give it my all. He knows how to keep you going without yelling or screaming at you. We work every muscle in the body at least a couple times a week. My weakness in cardio (I hate running!) because I have a mild asthma issue; yet I like that it’s incorporated in every workout. I just do my best and keep myself paced and control my breathing. (You can’t lose weight without cardio!) There is not one class where I’m not drenched in sweat-I love it! I’m pretty healthy as it is, but Bryan will give us tips on nutrition that are helpful. As much as I don’t like rolling out bed so early it’s worth! I get in a great workout, a sense of accomplishment and don’t have to worry about working out later and can enjoy the evenings with my family. Don’t think about, just do it
I started Boot Camp with a Cause at the Safety Harbor location in the Marina in early June, 2013. It has been a little over a month and I’m hooked! I’m a 54 year old full-time worker with little time for exercise until I came across Boot Camp with a Cause. Not only is Kelley a great instructor, she takes special care to be sure that you have alternative exercises to do if you have back, neck, or knee issues. The one on one care and concern are very refreshing in an exercise atmosphere! Aside from a terrific workout, a huge bonus is that our group sees the sun come up on Tampa Bay! Not only do we get exercise for our body, we also get food for our soul. Come join us and you’ll be hooked, too!!
I have been with Denise and Bryan Daskam for almost 4 years at their Westchase Boot Camp location. There is simply no workout that is better. The greatest thing about the workout is that it is geared to all levels. People get intimidated when they hear the word Bootcamp, and they never should feel this way with Denise and Bryan. Each day the routine is varied to include all muscle groups and cardiovascular exercise is mixed in perfectly. You can go all out and push yourself if you are a seasoned hard core workout person or you can pull back and go at your own pace. All levels are welcomed and everyone is taught to work hard and complete their personal bests!
It is with great enthusiasm that I can say that this bootcamp is where you want to go if you want the best workout in the Tampa Bay area. I am stronger, tighter, healthier, and most importantly happier with my success at this bootcamp. Bryan and Denise bring their motivational teaching techniques to class everyday. I have never been disappointed in any class in all of my 4 years. I whole heartedly recommend this bootcamp to anyone who wants to get a great workout, learn to eat correctly, and just get an overall feeling of well being and improve their health every day!
Denise and Bryan are great! I’ve been attending camp in Westchase for nearly a year. The camp provides you the ability to learn how to workout at your own pace, learn what works best for your body and puts the control in your hands. I can attend camp to maintain my health and athletic abilities or go a step further by adding nutrition work with Bryan to lose weight. I’ve achieved fitness goals with many more milestones to come Thanks guys!
Boot Camp With A Cause is truly motivational. I look forward to the workout (that I would never do on my own) and the group motivation that comes from watching others achieve their goals while they help me to acheive mine. It is so much fun that I find myself looking forward to my workouts. Thank you Denise and Brian for inspiring us everyday!
I started attending Boot Camp over three years ago. There have been some amazing transformations, not only in myself, but also in many others that attend on a regular basis. I started with the intention of achieving a quick six week tone up and ended up never leaving. I’ve visited other boot camps and several classes at the gym, but there truly isn’t a comparison. At our Boot Camp we have a great group of people always being positive and supportive. We have an awesome trainer who not only helps you get a challenging workout (even after three years) every day, but also is committed to help you with a healthy food plan and supplements if needed. With the combination of the right food, the right trainer, and the right support group, you will surely achieve your healthy lifestyle goals as I have.
BootCamp with a Cause is the best workout I have done. I have been doing Boot Camp workouts for 13 years and my body definition was at a standstill. I felt good but needed to kick it up! Bryan has helped me lower my body fat from 24% down to 18% in 8 weeks!!!! Following his meal plan and nutrition guidance is a big part of my results! Another contributor to my results is watching my heart rate during our workouts,( which Bryan also encouraged). I know how hard I am working during our training and I know if I need to step it up! I let everyone I know what I am doing and encourage them to join!!!
Denise and Bryan mix it up every day. Conscious of safety and individual thresholds–they allow you to adjust, but have no doubt, they drive and motivate you to be better during your workout and eating habits during the day. The group is also a great mix of hard working, fun loving people who hold each other playfully accountable.
I have been going to boot camp for a couple of years and I absolutely love it. After boot camp I feel so energized and motivated to begin my day.
Circumstances made me stop for a while and wow was that an awakening! I simply did not feel good – physically and mentally, I was tired throughout the day – I missed my workouts!
There is no intimidation during workouts and you can go at your own pace. If you have a weakness or prior injury Bryan is there to help with proper form and alternative moves. I started with a knee injury and boot camp has helped me heal and I am stronger than I ever expected.
I look forward to the next day’s workout. With great facilities, flexible times, and super trainers…you can’t go wrong!
I’m a retiree who moved from Michigan to Tampa about a year and a half ago. I feel very blessed to have become a part of the Boot Camp with a Cause “family” and have been working out with Denise since October 2012. I categorize this organization as a family because the members really care about each other and support each other both in class and beyond. Denise, Bryan and the rest of the crew obviously have deep commitment to the success of their clients as well as dedication and commitment to the community. Okay, back to my story! After a couple of months, I lost 13 pounds and although I still have some additional pounds I’d like to shed, I have certainly toned up and I’d say my “buns” look great in my jeans. Workouts are tough but worth it. Denise always encourages us to go at our own pace and applauds our successes.
I have been going to this boot camp for about 3 years. I never get tired of it. The routines are never the same so it is never boring. I am in the best physical condition of my life. I was not overweight when I started the program. I did it to get stronger and leaner. I have also learned how to eat better…..to make sure I am getting enough protein to power my body and to cut way back on foods that contain refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup.
A camp that works on multiple levels. Not only did I feel good with results but even better knowing this is benefitting a good cause. The staff and overall group make it fun and enjoyable and not just a dreaded beat down you don’t look forward to showing up for. I also liked the fact they keep your health and capabilites in mind so you don’t overdue it. Seems like they actually care about you and not just a dollar!
I am beyound happy that I found this boot camp class. I have been working out for years and I hit a wall and needed a change. I just wasn’t getting the results I’ve been wanting doing it by myself. Within weeks of attending Denise’s class I was noticing changes in my body from head to toe. Now 3 months later my body is in the best shape it has ever been. IN JUST 3 MONTHS! By listening to Denise I have learned so much about food and what and how much I should be eating. I love that she works one on one with me and is helping me get the body I have always wanted. The passion she has for wanting to help people look and feel great is just awesome.
I highly recommend everyone to try out BootCamp with a Cause. If you want to look and feel better about yourself and have people who care and know what they are doing to teach you then you need to get into this class! Pure awesome!
I knew a couple of folks who were attending Bryan’s class and gave it rave reviews so I decided to give it a try. I was an immediate convert. My overall fitness level has increased tremendously since becoming part of this excellent class. Bryan clearly puts a great deal of thought and science into every session. He constantly varies the exercises resulting in ever-increasing strength and aerobic capacity. Bryan is very encouraging and will work around any injury or weakness. I feel very fortunate to have been part of this great class for almost one year.
As a full time working mom of 2 very active little boys, time for me is limited. I have always enjoyed working out and belonged to some type of gym but didn’t always have the time or the energy at the end of my day to work out. That is until I found Bootcamp with a Cause. I LOVE the always changing classes that challenge and push me beyond what I thought I was capable of doing. I go to the 5:30 am class and end it each time with sense of accomplishment and pride. I am stronger than I have ever been and my clothes are starting to fit me differently. Denise is amazingly supportive and keeps classes fun. There are men and women of all ages and levels of fitness so I was never intimidated. I will be going to Bootcamp for a very long time!

Let’s face it, it’s hard enough to find time in your schedule to workout. If you’re going to put that time in, don’t you want to get the MOST BURN for your BUCK?
Our Boot Camp program challenges every muscle in your body and with little rest in between each set; you’re bound to feel the burn and intensity. You’re constantly moving for an hour, your body has no time to rest, therefore burning hundreds of calories, not only during the workout, but after as well!
We design our Boot Camp programs to meet your fitness level and go at your own pace, and in group settings. Working together with a team of people with similar fitness goals offers further motivation and fun challenges one may not individually face when working individually with a personal trainer. Classic steady-state aerobic exercise training has been proven ineffective, so instead of maintaining your heart rate in a “target zone” which is different for everyone, we coach you with the latest in fitness research. You can expect intense workouts involving weights, running, jumping, calisthenics, core shifting, and other dynamic exercises designed to maintain your heart rate within the fat burning zone of beats per minute, while showing you how exercise can be entertainment, not just 30-60 minutes of running on a treadmill, stationary bicycle, or other equipment. With short-but-intense cardio intervals, full-body strength moves, and an extra dose of ab work, you’ll slim down your entire body and tighten your tummy! Get fast results in a supportive and motivational environment!
With a balance of good nutrition and mindset, our Boot Camp program will get you in the shape and health you have always strived for! With Boot Camp locations in Westchase and Pinellas Park, you’re sure to find a class close to you!
