Meet Kaitlyn! According to Riverdale trainer, Trevor Pickett  “Kaitlyn has missed the 6am class about 4 times in the last 10 months. She always shows up with a great attitude and ready to go. She pushes herself and encourages everyone else around her too. Kaitlyn also makes sure everyone, especially new people know they are part of the team. She cheers everyone on and contributes to our fun group dynamic. Kaitlyn is totally deserving to be boot camper of the month. She rocks! “




Office Manager

How long have you been training with us?

10 months

What did you do for your fitness before signing up with FFG?

A little yoga and jogging

What made you sign up for a FFG Bootcamp?

My friend Charlotte asked me to join to help get an east-end group started. I thought I would give it a try.

How has being an FFG Bootcamper changed your life?

I love mornings even more now.

I am in probably the best shape I have ever been, no lie.

I can feel it when I go out dancing now I never get tired.

I just dance the night away.

(PS. This is one of Oonagh’s favourite testimonials EVER 🙂


What do you do when you are not Bootcamping?

I love to eat pizza and going to see live music.

What’s your major fitness goal right now?

Maybe start to like running a little, so the whole group could do a 5k sometime.

What about coming to Bootcamp makes you jump out of bed at 5am singing the Hills Are Alive with the Sound of Music?

In all seriousness I am in love with the east end crew.

We have had such great times at 6am,

but we work our butts off too.

 Never a wasted morning for my mind, body, or spirit.

What exercise or drill makes you cower under your bed covers and pretend you don’t hear your alarm?

Since we have been outside definitely the hill, but BURPEES could just disappear.

Best/funniest Bootcamp moment?

Oh my god this is a hard one.  I love all the themed workouts.

I really had fun on Family Day watching the kids trying to keep up with their parents.

Recently we worked out under covering to get out of the rain. There was a man sleeping close to us but Jesse Bruce did not turn down the music. I could go on and on..

What advice would you give someone who is just starting out with FFG Bootcamps or just thinking about it?

For me exercise is hard

and I live with a disability that makes it even harder some days.

But with Bootcamp there are no excuses and you always try your best.

Just come out and meet us!! You will get use to waking up I promise!

What is the accomplishment or personal milestone you are most proud of?

Better squats and a longer plank.

I beat my sister in a plank challenge. Never thought I would do that in my life.
