What people saying about Boot Camp:
When I first started my training with you, I was reluctant and apprehensive – reluctant, because I knew how hard it was going to be to start from the beginning to get back in shape, and – apprehensive, because of my back and neck injuries. To tell the truth, I almost quit after the first two sessions, but because of your encouragement and support, along with my confidence in your knowledge about physiology (your really know your stuff), I decided to tough it out. After all, what is the alternative? Sit around and continue to get in worse shape?
So, thank you! thank you! thank you! For helping me get back my old self. I’ve lost 15 pounds; my clothes are starting to fit again – yeah! And now, I can do much more – biking, kayaking, skiing –to name a few, and just doing regular housework is sooooo mush easier.
Shawn, without a doubt, you are the best and most knowledgeable fitness instructor I’ve ever worked with. You vary the workouts so I never get bored; I work harder during the hour than I ever thought I could, and at the end, I’m never sore (how is that?); the workouts you’ve designed for me to do on my days off from training classes are awesome and keep me on track; and you’ve always got some great tips about nutrition – I’m eating better now, but it’s not like dieting – a nice change from the yo-yoing I’d been used to.
And, the classes are so much fun. It seems like intense personal training, but with a group – and such nice people – everyone’s so friendly and welcoming. Your training program is definitely part of my life now, and I can’t imagine where I’d be without it!
In the past few weeks since I've relocated to California, I have realized how much I miss your classes! When I started working with you in September, I was coming off of about nine months of triathlon training. I thought I was in good shape and my body fat wouldn't change too much. I was sure in for a surprise when my body fat decreased by 4.5%! That's a lot in four months! The best part was that it was FUN! Every class was a workout, but I enjoyed each and every one! It was wonderful to work as a group to achieve the common goal of improved fitness. You are so knowlegable in your field and you create a safe workout environment that is challenging for people of ALL abilities and fitness levels at the same time! That's quite an accomplishment! I can feel how much stronger my legs and my core have become as I'm hitting the slopes out west! I have no doubt that I will be returning to Headstrong classes when I come back to Wilmington in the fall! Thanks again!

I have been working with Shawn Manning for over five years and am in
the best shape of my life! Shawn's approach to physical fitness is
comprehensive, combining very challenging kettlebell workouts with an
emphasis on flexibility, strength training and cardiovascular work,
all with an eye toward personal goals and abilities. I especially
appreciate Shawn's intelligence and camaraderie, which bring
challenge, fun and personal accomplishment to each class.
On a recent trip with friends, I participated in a yoga class, where
my work with Shawn was rewarded by my ability to do a headstand -
easily! Hats off to Headstrong Athletics for the strength and
flexibility which made that possible, right after my 50th birthday!
I've been participating in Shawn's classes for about 1 1/2 years. I have always been active, everything from low to high impact aerobics, pilates, yogi, running, you name it, I've tried it all over the last 25+ years. I will have to say kettlebell training and the diverse routines that Shawn incorporates into her boot camps have been the most effective with the best results. I feel stronger and in better shape than in years. I'm at 18% body fat which is the lowest I've been in a very long time. At 5'7", I'm able to carry extra weight easier than most but, as one gets older, I did not like how "certain areas" seem to be shifting.
I'm currently going twice a week which is a very small amount of time to invest for such a big return. Shawn is constantly checking your form to maximum the affect and avoid any injury. Shawn has such a great way of motivating and makes it all fun. Don't misunderstand, it's hard work...but you know her goal is your goal....Shawn, you're the Best! Thanks for all you do.
Son't delay another second!
