‘Tough love’ bootcamp coming to Comox

Professional football player turned celebrity trainer Tommy Europe is hosting a “no-nonsense, tough love” fitness bootcamp in Comox.

Professional football player turned celebrity trainer Tommy Europe is hosting a “no-nonsense, tough love” fitness boot camp June 24 at Marina Park in Comox.

Europe’s Shred Bootcamp will incorporate high- and low-impact techniques to challenge participants of all fitness levels, and will include two picture/question-and-answer sessions.

The boot camp is part of Europe’s cross-Canada tour teaching efficient and effective workouts; tickets to a similar event in Europe’s hometown of Toronto have sold out.

Europe has developed his SHRED philosophy on the principles of Strength, Heart, Resilience, Efficiency, and Discipline, and sets his boot camps up “in such a way that everybody can do it.”

Europe challenges participants to “get off your butt and do it” — to work “extremely hard and have a good time at the same time.”

Europe has been voted Vancouver’s Best Personal Trainer in the Georgia Strait readers’ poll, and has 22 years of training experience in the fitness industry. He hosts fitness shows The Last Ten Pounds, Bulging Brides, and Tommy Europe Fitness, has released a book The 10 Pound Shred: From Flab to Fit in 4 Weeks, and creates online fitness videos at www.4WEEKSTOANEWYOU.com.  Europe also feels his 11-year football career has also helped him develop an expert understanding of sports movement. Winning the 1994 Grey Cup as a member of the B.C. Lions, Europe has since been inducted into the BC Hall of Fame.

Prospective participants in Europe’s bootcamp can pre-register online at www.tommyeurope.tv or drop in (space-permitting).

“Everyone’s going to get an amazing workout,” says Europe, “‘cause you get to work at your own pace.”
