So I asked Tommy Europe — the no-nonsense host of Slice TV’s The Last 10 Pounds Bootcamp and Bulging Brides — if he’s going to go easy on me this Sunday.
There was a millisecond of silence on the other end of the phone. Then Tommy started laughing.
Not the response I was expecting.
“Well,” I continued (once the laughter subsided), “maybe what I need is a good kick in the pants.”
Tommy replied in agreement: “It’s good for you.”
Tommy, of course, will be in Alberta this coming weekend for a pair of Shred Bootcamps.
I’ll be at World Health in downtown Edmonton on the afternoon of Feb. 20, when the former CFLer pulls out his megaphone and proceeds to put me and about 100 other gluttons for punishment through our paces.
“I’ll be barking orders and pushing people along,” Tommy promises.
“The main thing that I wanted to do with Shred Bootcamp is show people you can use bodyweight and it’s still resistance training. And you’re going to see different ways you can push your body and the tempo that you can work at and you’ll surprise yourself.”
The full-body workout will last about an hour.
Tommy hinted I will likely have to bust out the Rub A535 muscle relaxant afterwards.
“You’re going to be kinda sore after a few days,” he says with a laugh.
I’m not liking that devilish laugh.
“But it’s going to be a lot of fun,” he added.
Yeah, for him.
