Thoughts on Tommy Europe’s Shred Bootcamp

Random thoughts on Tommy Europe’s Shred Bootcamp on Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011, at World Health in downtown Edmonton:

• Tommy is uber-ripped! The Slice TV star and former CFL defensive back is certainly walking the talk.

• He’s a genuinely nice guy. Adjectives that spring to mind include: down-to-earth, charismatic, classy, confident and funny.

• Women sure love Tommy! There were only about five of us guys in a group of about 100. I’m happily married, but Tommy pointed out that the odds were good for the males — about 20 to 1!

• The workout room used for the bootcamp was way too cramped and crowded. That was the only negative in a supremely positive experience. Maybe Tommy will take his bootcamp outdoors when he returns to Edmonton in the late summer.

• I’d like to do his bootcamp again — even though I was sore from head to toe for three days afterwards.

• I shouldn’t be so amazed, but Tommy’s Shred Bootcamp is proof positive that you really don’t need any equipment for a stellar workout. Tommy put us through a tough full-body resistance workout without any barbells, dumbbells or fancy fitness gadgets. We simply used our bodyweight and good ol’ gravity.

• Tommy plays a no-nonsense drill sergeant on TV, especially when he pulls out his megaphone. But he was extremely supportive and encouraging on Sunday.

• In a post-bootcamp tweet to me the next day, Tommy wrote: “It all starts by moving a little more every day. Before you know it, you will be on the right path. You did great!” Thanks, Tommy!

I survived Tommy Europe’s Shred Bootcamp … barely

The video of yours truly sweating, heaving and jiggling through Slice TV star Tommy Europe’s punishing Shred Bootcamp is now online.

It ain’t pretty.

But that’s OK. No pain, no gain — right? (Three days later and I’m still sore.)

Clash of fitness titans?

- February 14th, 2011

Castagna_Cary_5tommybootcamp

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.”

We’ll see.

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.
