Everyone wants to feel like they are a superhero (at least some days!). It’s not just about the colorful spandex tights, the cool flowing capes, or the undeniably awesome muscle definition that we all know can’t hurt to have; rather, what we want is to feel able and invincible towards the goals we set out to achieve.
Vanessa Birch was new to being a mom when she first introduced Singapore to Momentum Bootcamps. After moving to Singapore from Australia and adopting children from Ethiopia, Vanessa was ready to return to her routine by channeling her energy towards her second passion: fitness. Her impressive solo act was short lived when she met Amanda Clemente.
Amanda was one of the first of eight clients when Vanessa started Momentum Bootcamps. In fact, Amanda attended Momentum’s first class. Amanda religiously devoted herself to the program up to during her pregnancy (high intensity training during pregnancy is not recommended for everyone, please consult with your doctor). It wasn’t hard to realize Amanda was the perfect person to approach as a business partner. When the two ladies joined forces, it became obvious the mission they set to take on. Kicking off a business in a new country early in their children’s lives is the kind of determination these women possess.
The superwomen of momentum bootcamps preach a get lean, high intensity, fat burning approach to working out but to them it is more about asking “how are you getting stronger, how are you getting fitter?” What is integral to their approach is the focus on guiding you through your journey. Momentum Bootcamps wants to equip you on your path to success, as Vanessa puts it, it is about being “strong in your own way” and about you “in your own race.” A competitive spirit is not what they’re about, unless it’s about competing against yourself. Their community is more for the comradeship, which is why these ladies make it a priority to keep their classes to a 1 to 16 trainer to participant ratio.
Vanessa and Amanda are two of four trainers. All four trainers are mothers of two, who get through their weeks vibing off each other’s energy and creativity. Whether it’s sharing programs, training each other, or spending time with the kids, these ladies make it a point to keep growing and learning alongside the business. Attending each other’s classes at least once a week is part of their mandatory routine to keep each other challenge and all programs fresh. For Momentum Bootcamps it is about “getting the most out of the time” for clients when they are away from their children.
Amongst the many highlights from the year, like training the Singapore Cricket Club Hockey Team and running their weekend retreats at different venues in Singapore (such as East Coast Park), the main highlights are the real stories and relationships formed.
One of the most inspiring of which was of a lady who at her first session was hyperventilating and unable to complete the session, but using her disappointment as fuel transformed herself to become a frontrunner in the three session she now attends weekly. These are the kinds of transformations Momentum Bootcamps aims to help participants with.
From strength training, to cardio boxing, to high intensity circuits, Momentum is out to first remind individuals to stop letting fear get in the way and to encourage everyone to begin their journey. These ladies are the real deal: inspirational, fit, and beautiful inside and out. Here is the sweat dripping workout you’ve been waiting and craving for (whether or not you know it already!). Momentum bootcamps is ready to bring you to your winning streak.
