I have always been fit, and toned through out my life, but never have I seen these outstanding results that I have gained using this program !
I joined Go Girl Bootcamp 6 years ago as a member after my second pregnancy, to kick start my workout regime as I had hit a plateau and continued with Go Girl Bootcamp thereafter I had my 3 child. The rest is history they say because I would not ever turn back!
After taking the First Transformation Program offered, I lost 47 pounds of my unwanted baby fat!
I look better now, that I am a mother of 3 then I did when I was in my twenties! I’m weighing in my low 130 range, and am back into my size 5/6 pants from when I was in my teens!! It’s unbelievable when I look at myself in the mirror and see a new leaner, stronger and sexier me. I can actually see definition in my arms, and abs, and overall…my body looks toned and I look and feel great!!
If you are looking to get fit, this is the place to be…a proud community of women who come together and push themselves and each other, a great atmosphere with women who are there for the same things, for a healthier lifestyle, get leaner, feel fantastic and of course Get Sexy!
Rosie Metayer – Markham, ON
My fitness level was very low before joining GGBC. I was lucky if I got to the gym or a yoga class once every 3 months. Fitness was last on my to-do list! I tried to kick-start things several times, but I always found an excuse not to do it. Once I found GGBC I was ready to make a change and boy am I thrilled that I did it!!!
Since joining the program in Feb/13 I am down 50+ lbs and 30+ inches!!! I feel amazing. I am down from a size 12 dress to a size 6! The biggest accomplishment for me is the size of my jeans ‘I was wearing a size 14 at times and I now fit into a size 8’. This has made me so happy!!!
In terms of how I feel my fitness level is now – WOW I feel so strong now. I honestly feel like a bit of a fitness junkie! I want to get to class every other day, I push harder and lift heavier every chance I get. I’ve never felt so strong in my entire life”this is all because of what GGBC has done for me; I NEVER would have been able to do this on my own, it’s that plain and simple!!!!
To anyone that is thinking of joining I say ‘DO it NOW’, don’t wait!! My only regret is that I did not join sooner. I seriously wish I had done this years ago; but I know that I had to be ready.
GGBC has been life changing for me – Dan, Rosie and Stephanie are real fitness hero’s in my eyes, I can’t thank them enough!!! The members at GGBC have also transformed me in so many ways with their encouragement and inspiration each and every day!!!! My final piece of advice is ˜Go Girl ‘you can do IT’!!!!!
Andrea Case – Markham, ON
Before joining Go Girl I found excuses to hide behind my weight gain and even more to not have to do anything about it. I have always had a love-hate relationship with my diet and exercise; I could get one or the other on track but couldn’t find a balance between the two. I’ve had gym memberships but felt intimidated and clueless with what to do when I was there. I’ve tried exercising at home but eventually lacked motivation to maintain consistency. I’ve tried diet pills, shakes, cleanses and the like, but my results were short lived.
Within 4 months of joining Go Girl I have lost 28 pounds, 12 inches overall, and dropped 8 pant sizes; results are still happening!
Joining Go Girl was one of the best decisions I have made! Everything I needed but could not find I have found in this place. There is a great support system that holds me accountable when I need it, encourages me when I doubt myself, and celebrates every success big and small. We’re a family and this feels like home! It’s no longer about diet and exercise but refueling and training my body to its full potential. I am happier and healthier and have learned that I deserve this because I am worth it…and so are YOU!!! Looking forward to sweating it out with you one day.
Thank you to my Go Girl family for all that you are and all that do!
Christine Macatangay – Markham, on
I have been a Go Girl for just over a year, I started last year with a 6 week challenge, I lost a lot of weight and felt amazing so I of course joined! I knew I was making the right choice. Then life sort of messed with me, I went on a few vacays… Indulged A LOT ….then got hurt while riding a horse, and basically stopped coming to boot camp.
Finally in march I had the courage to come back to boot camp and it changed everything! Even though I didn’t join the 6 week challenge or the 28 day challenge technically.
As of today…since march I have lost 49 pounds and 5 dress sizes! I’m writing this amazing news one week before my dreaded 30th birthday and I could not feel more accomplished. You can come back and you can try again because you have only failed if you give up trying. when I first came back the thing that kept me going was this quote… “Fall down seven times, get up eight”
All of you girls have just pushed me and inspired me day in and day out to do my best we are all in it together and I just love that and thank you for that! I hope I can do the same for you.
I have no idea where this journey is taking me but I’m so excited for whatever my future accomplishments are! I guess bring on being a super old 30!
Nikki Norton – Markham, on
I was a shy and insecure girl before joining the Transformation Centre. I was an introvert and wasn’t comfortable talking to anyone.
Now life has taken a 360 degree turn after joining. I am a completely new and different person. Everything looks amazing around me!
So far, after 4 months of joining Go Girl, I have lost over 42 TOTAL pounds and 4 dress sizes and I’m still working on losing more.
If you’re thinking of joining, don’t even waste a minute because key is in your hand.
The support and encouragement that you will get her from the coaches and the members you cannot find in any other place.
Each and every Go Girl is amazing !!! You have to join with an open mind and positive approach for the change to enter into your life.
My deepest heartfelt thanks to all my coaches ……. Dan, Rosie, Stephanie & Stella !!
Kavita Karia – Markham, ON
Prior to starting my weight-loss journey with GG back in September 2013, I had embarked on my own fitness journey through a dedicated yoga practice and weekly long distance cycling. I dabbled in and out of doing various DVD exercise programs.
I went to my very first trial session, and I met a few of those very same women who’s testimonials were posted on the GG website, at the actual workout session! I knew then that the results were real. But the hard work is also real.
Since I’ve joined the GG team, I’ve personally seen a complete transformation in my relationship with food and fitness..and with it, came the results – I’m now 35lbs lighter than when I first started off….and counting. Still some way to go before hitting that 45lb total weight loss goal….but I know with the support of GG and the girls there, it will only be a matter of time.
I have never been more energetic and happier. It’s a crazy thing, but your fitness level can defy all odds that age brings. I’ve met women that are 10x stronger, and age is almost a non-factor.
What I love about GG, is how real the community is and how inclusive the culture is. I have never felt more in control of my health and overall well-being.
The GG transformation program has shown that it’s never too late. No matter what fitness level you’re at to begin with, and what age you’re at. All it takes, is some dedication. Do it!
Annabelle K. – Markham, ON
I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself in to when I joined Go Girl. I was nervous about what the workouts would be like and what the instructors would be like but I quickly discovered I had nothing to worry about.
Being a part of Go Girl has changed my life. It is the first place that I have truly felt 100% comfortable. With Go Girl you’re joining a family not just another gym.
I’m extremely happy to say that I’ve lost 32.5 pounds and am now more than half way to my goal and feel amazing!
I have more confidence, more energy, and more zest for life. Go Girl hasn’t just given me a new outlook on how to reach my fitness goals it’s given me the confidence to know I can do anything I put my mind to!
As a result I’ve transformed not just my body but my eating habits, will power, confidence and happiness! No excuses just go get it and turn your dreams into your reality!
Amanda Hunt – Markham, ON
Before joining Go Girl Bootcamp, I had tried other bootcamps, and fad diets…I would see results, but nothing long lasting.
My fiancé (boyfriend at the time) and I were starting to talk about marriage a lot more, and I knew I needed to do something! The way I looked at the time, was not how I pictured myself on my wedding day. It was time for “Operation Wedding Dress”!
My first bootcamp weigh in, I was 184 lbs, wearing size 14 pants, and extra large shirts. Today I am down 37.2 lbs, and 4 pant sizes!
Although I joined Go Girl to lose weight for the wedding, and knew it was going to require hard work on my part, I never dreaded coming to class. I knew that every class I would have the support of the amazing coaches and the rest of the girls in class.
My only regret is not joining sooner! There is something amazing about working out with a group of women who sincerely want to see you succeed, support you, and encourage you. Come try a class, you’ll love it, I promise!
Cheryl C. – Markham, ON
My fitness life before GGBC consisted of doing cardio 3 times a week. Since joining GGBC I’ve lost 34 pounds and have dropped down from a size 14 dress to a size 4!
I feel much more healthier and most importantly…after doing boot camp I feel as if I can accomplish anything I set my mind on.
I would tell anyone who wants to join go girls to note that this isn’t just any other bootcamp class: It is a place where you feel comfortable regardless of where you are starting at or even if you do not know anyone. Everyone is friendly and encourage one another throughout the workouts. Dan/Rosie/Linda encourage you to push harder each class so you are giving 100%. Dan is amazing and I know for a fact that him pushing me and following up kept me on track and reach my goal.
Thank you Dan!
Before boot camp I did little to no fitness activity. I was very lazy and unmotivated, I would sit at watch t.v. for hours instead of working out. After working out with the boot camp I have lost 11 lbs, my whole body is more toned and I went down two dress sizes! Boot camp is motivating and fun. I love the group dynamic and it has proven to have great results.
Assunta A. – Markham, Ontario
I joined GO GIRL Transformation Center at the end of 2010 after a stress filled year with no physical activity. I had gained 14 pounds in one year and was frustrated and afraid that this was the mid-life spread that was now creeping up on me, but I also knew that this was an excuse and I needed to do something. I surfed the net and found Go Girl Bootcamp, I read Dan’s and Rosie’s testimonials and decided to give it a try with very little expectations. Little did I realize just how significant that decision would be for my life.
I remember my first trial class, I was so exhausted all I could think of was how I was going to get through the class and how could I ever sustain a workout program this intense. Well 2 1/2 years later I am still here and now find it hard to stay away on the off days!
Since I joined I have lost 28 pounds of fat, I dropped 5 jean sizes, 8 inches off my waist, 4 inches off my hips, I feel energetic and on my way to feeling and being fitter and healthier than I have ever been…and that includes my 20’s! It has also changed my limiting beliefs about what is possible for my body.
I have changed my perspective on exercise as well, and no longer look at my workouts as only a means to burning calories, but an opportunity to grow stronger, to feel revitalized and energetic, to push beyond my limits and to simply enjoy the opportunity to move and share space with a community of woman that inspire me with their own stories and successes everyday.
These woman, lead by the amazing trainers are the reason that I have began to take on fitness challenges and train for races that I thought would never have been possible at this stage of my life. I am so grateful to the amazing trainers and every girl that i have worked out with at Go Girl for believing in themselves enough to show up …for it gives me the courage to believe and to show up for myself!
To any girl that is thinking about joining I would can only say you write your own life story …. what do you want yours to say?
Lina Della Serra – Markham, ON
Before I joined Go Girl boot camp I was a member at a gym for more then 5 yrs. I NEVER got the results I got here.
After I gave birth to my son I found the gym just was not helping. I was unmotivated and stopped caring. I knew this had to change.
When I found Go Girl, I thought I will give this a try. Do one challenge and see how it goes. It was the BEST thing I ever did. I have now done 3 challenges and can say that I will be a part of Go Girl for LIFE!
The trainers are absolutely AMAZING, all the GG members are super supportive and motivating. We are one BIG FAMILY.
Since joining I have lost almost 30 Ibs, 8 inches off my waist, 5 inches off my hips, and I am down 3 dress sizes.
This is the best I have ever looked. THANK YOU GO GIRL!
Tamara Paulik – Markham, ON
When it comes to Bootcamps, the GGBC program is far superior than all the rest. Guaranteed!
At GGBC there is a common thread between the members, new and old. Everyone may be there for different reasons, (to lose weight, get in shape or to get a great workout), but we all support each other with no judgement.
We encourage each other to work at your own pace; especially if you’ve just started or go a little bit harder, one step farther, giving it that 100%. With the encouragement and support from our trainers, Dan (owner and founder of GGBC), Rosie and Stephanie, everyone is guaranteed to feel stronger, fitter, leaner and more confident in their lives.
We learned the importance of writing down our goals, posting pictures of ourselves and how it makes us accountable. Once you start seeing the changes in your body, you understand why this is so important and a key to your success.
I have lost 17 lbs, 9″ overall, 4 dress sizes and 8% body fat. For a women in her mid 50’s, that’s damn impressive! Showing you anyone can do this with hard work, commitment and support from an amazing team.
Without the support of all the girls at BC I don’t know how this would have been possible. For that I say “thank you”.
If those looking for an exception workout, support system, strong friendships, GGBC is the place to be. It may not be the cheapest but I guarantee you it’s worth the investment …. Isn’t your health worth it?
If I don’t know you, introduce yourself, cause I’d love to workout alongside you. Success = GGBC
Sara Larson – Markham, ON
Before bootcamp, I didn’t really have a fitness life, it was non-existence. I didn’t play any sports, or participated in any physical activities. To be honest, I thought I was fine and didn’t think I had anything to worry about. I didn’t have any interest in working out or getting in shape.
After doing the Markham boot camp I lost 41 pounds and dropped 10 dress sizes! I don’t know exactly how many inches, but I know I was once a pant size 30-32, and now I wear size 25.
I feel more energized and motivated from the moment I wake up and it continues throughout the day. Bootcamp helps me to burn that excess energy and relieve any stress which allowed me to develop a better sleeping pattern and which in turn reinforces my energy level the next morning.
I also noticed that I feel more confident in my body. I am in better shape than I was ever before. I am addicted to bootcamp.
Shopping has also been great. Before, shopping was difficult because I would wear baggy, loose fitting clothes to hide my body. Now, I don’t feel like I have to. I am fitting in clothes that I would never have worn before, and it looks good!
Before joining the Go Girls family, I weighed 200lbs, had just had my second child. I was going through bouts of depression and low self esteem because of the sudden changes to my body.
One day I happened to see an ad for Go Girl and read some awe inspiring testimonials about girls getting great results. I decided that this was my time, my time to get my life together and finally do something for my self. So I got out of an abusive relationship and decided to sign up for my first challenge.
I have since then lost a total of 35 lbs, 7 inches off my waist and dropped 3 dress sizes, and I have never felt so happy, healthy and energized!
The motivation and inspiration that I got from all the girls and Dan has been so amazing. I know that I have much more to achieve, but I am off to a great start all thanks to my Go Girl family!

Pictures Speak A Thousand Words! But they can also invoke so much emotion!
But before I get to far let me introduce you to the girl on the left above (aka
BEFORE). She’d (past tense because she’s gone) been around for the last 6 years pretty
steady.busy really busy being a mom, having a career, being a wife, the social
coordinator, the cleaner, the renovator, also a dabbler of gyms, personal training
sessions, a season of sports here or there and flirting with the idea of wanting to get
She lacked the motivation, commitment, drive and that little spark, that catalyst that
push to get the wheels and cogs of change in motion.
Now I’m the girl in the picture on the right! It’s been an amazing ride! I
transformed, I participated and owned the programs!! Sexy in six is right! The support,
the high fives and the smiles!! I am extremely proud to say I lost 34 pounds in
ONLY 12 WEEKS!!
My nutrition has changed. I have met some of the most supportive and positive people
in my life in addition to the support at home from my family, my close friends, and some
really supportive colleagues at work!
The positive energy is all around me! I just need to keep that around take it in and
just acknowledge that there will be negative energy, but recognize it and not let it
deter me from my ultimate goals! I’ve lost a net 46 pounds during my journey and
the good news is I am still working to see where I can go! I feel great and I know I am
not done yet! My size 14 labels are now size 8 or size 10 labels. Results don’t
My state of being has changed: I am transformed! Now onto the next phase! I have found
a program that works for me; if you don’t believe then look at my picture it does speak a
thousand words! If I can do it you can too!
Amanda Bass – Markham, ON
I am TRANSFORMED!
“I was moderately active person but lacked the real motivation to reach my fitness goals. I wasgoing to gym for about 6 months before joining butcould not see much change in myself. I heard my friend saying that boot camp really works. I tried to give it a chance andit did really worked for me !!
I have seen tremendous results after I joined the camp. Idropped 26 pounds in about 4 months and went down from a size 13-14 to size 9. I feel great about myself.
The good thing about this boot camp is it couples exercise and nutrition in a way that if you follow both of them religiously, you are bound to see results!!”
Platform IT Technician
My fitness life before bootcamp was a cycle of failed attempts. I was never able to keep myself motivated and on track enough past the one or two times that I got myself pumped up for.
As of right now, working out is like an amazing drug to me. I just crave for it more and more. I try to go to Markham bootcamp classes three times a week, and I also incorporate at least three yoga classes as well. When I am in yoga, I find that the strength that I have gained and the persistence to push on in bootcamp allow me to challenge all of the poses that I used to only admire in magazines.
Although I still have a long way to go, I am now stronger physically and mentally. My energy level has increased, I am leaner and stronger, and I am in the best shape of my life since having my daughter. Being able to push through the workouts gives me confidence to challenge things that I would never have done before.
I would say “What are you waiting for? You have nothing to lose (but weight) and a whole lot to gain”. Go Girl Bootcamp isn’t just a place to go to “try” to get in shape. You get results because there are wonderful coaches to help keep you on track and make sure that you are doing things correctly to get those results. There is also the community vibe that is absolutely incredible.
On the days where I thought I couldn’t, I looked over and saw ladies ten years older than me, ladies who have just had babies, and other mothers just like myself with a crazy schedule who manage to dedicate that one hour to themselves and we all push on together.
Yeeshin Loh – Markham, ON
Before joining Go Girl, i went to the gym a couple of times a week. But i pretty much had no sense of direction and did not know what i was doing to get the most of a workout.
I also ate everything in sight which made my results very minimal and disappointing, and also caused me to dislike the way i looked.
After joining bootcamp, i finally gained knowledge from my incredible coaches as to what to eat, what type of exercises to do to maximize fat loss, and i have to say, i’ve never been happier with my body and more proud of what i have accomplished in the 7 months i have been here.
I lost 13 pounds and i am more toned and fit now than i have ever been! To anyone who is looking to turn their life around with a positive change, and to feel confident and love yourself, join our team of wonderful and inspiring women at GGBC!!
Anita Chou – Markham, ON
For the last 4 years, I have either been pregnant or on maternity leave. I used this as my excuse to be lazy and eat all the things I never used to allow myself. I eventually reached the point where I could no longer use “baby weight” as an excuse. I made a few attempts at starting an exercise program on my own, but quickly lost motivation when I wasn’t getting the results I wanted.
I joined “Go Girl Bootcamp” in February 2013, and in only four months I lost OVER 50 lbs!!!
The support and motivation I received from the coaches and other GGBC members, in addition to the amazing workouts, was exactly what I needed to get back on track and stay focused. I honestly don’t think I’d be where I am today had I not found Go Girls Bootcamp.
To reach your goal, whether it be losing weight or increasing your fitness level, it takes a combination of diet and exercise. There is no “magic pill” that will get you there; you have to find a program that motivates you, challenges you and most importantly, something that you enjoy.
I found all of these things when I joined Go Girl Bootcamp. The coaches push me when I need the encouragement, high five me when I reach my next goal, and all within a fun, supportive environment that welcomes women of all fitness levels. It’s the closest thing to “magic” you’re going to find.
Jenn L. – Markham, ON
Before joining, I was living life. I was mom, wife, accountant, friend. I spent most of my days doing everything for someone else. I was unhealthy, flabby, and it was starting to make me unhappy. I was short tempered, tired, and self-conscious. I had always been thin, but I noticed I was starting to balloon…quickly!
I wasn’t eating well, I wasn’t working out. I was just counting on that teenage metabolism which was well past its prime. It was not the kind of example I wanted to set for my kids. I needed to do something.
The first thing I realized was those people’s stories on the website were real people who still worked out at GGBC even after those amazing results. I was hooked after the first class.
Since joining GGBC, I have dropped 41 pounds and 2 pant sizes. I am wearing a size medium! I never thought I would see that size again! I have more energy, strength, and self confidence. I don’t hide in pictures any more.
GGBC has amazing trainers that take an interest in you personally. They really make the effort to know you personally, and that translates to them pushing you to reach your goals and keep on going.
GGBC is not your typical gym/boot-camp. We have a true feeling of family. I look forward every day to boot camp, it is not a chore, something I feel like I have to do because it is expected of me.
We share each others achievements and we help each other through set-backs. There is never any judgement here.
If you are thinking about joining, do it! Do it for yourself, you owe it to yourself and you deserve it! This has been by far the best thing I have done for myself and in turn for my family.
Sara Russell – Stouffville, ON
Before I started Go Girls Boot camp I had been working out on my own with two different personal trainers and following their advice in regard to work-outs and diet for two years. I saw some results and went down a few sizes in the beginning but the stubborn fat was just not coming off. I was paying and arm and leg and getting nowhere and started to get really frustrated.
I had meet Dan Go at a mutual friend’s wedding and started to subscribe to his blog and thought why not give his gym and his plan a try and boy am I ever glad I did. I came to Go Girls weighing in at 166 pounds in February 2014 and by the end of May 2014 I lost 36 pounds and now proudly weigh 130 pounds
I feel great about myself and moreover the Go Girls Team is filled with some amazing ladies (and Dan of course too), they have great trainers, great members, and great energy!
It is truly a forum that any women can walk into and achieve her goals no matter what her previous experiences were and get results.
Miranda Q. – Markham, ON
After having 2 kids, I completely lost sight of who I was and what I wanted and needed. I let myself get away with gaining weight and not putting any effort into my own health and well being by using the excuse that I am being a good mom by spending all my time on my kids.
I realized that I wasn’t able to keep up with them and do all the activities I wanted and that ultimately I wasn’t happy. I looked at myself in the mirror and just felt hopeless.
By chance I came across the website for the Markham boot camp, and I decided to email them about trying out a class. I hesitated to commit to a day to actually go in for the first class, because I was afraid I was too out of shape, and that people would judge me and resent me for holding up the class.
That first workout was insanely intense for me but there was so much support and so many understanding girls all working out together, working towards the same goal. I knew this was where I needed to be.
These girls continue to motivate and inspire me with their dedication and determination. They believe in me and challenge me to push harder and to never stop.
The coaches are the most amazing assets to this program. They want the best for ourselves. They have been my rocks through this process of change and transformation. They understand the good days and bad days because they have been through this process themselves.
That is the big difference from other programs; these coaches have walked our paths before. I owe them everything!
I am braver and more confident and I am facing challenges head on and doing things I never thought I could do before. I’ve lost over 25 lbs and gone down 3 dress sizes in just 4 short months, but my journey is not over, this is going to be a lifetime change.
Dan has helped me see that it is possible because he believes I can do it even when I doubt myself. I am so grateful to call these girls and my coaches Steph, Rosie and Dan my family. I love my GGBC family.
Tracy Kao – Markham, ON
“…I have dropped 3-4 clothes sizes, dropped 11% body fat, dropped 33 lbs, and inches and all without serious dieting!
I couldnever have done all of this on my own without the boot camps support, consistent pushing me to expand my boundaries and telling me to stay focused.”

“Before joining GG Bootcamps I was constantly going out to eat and never thought of exercising. I was starting to get frustrated with my habits and really wanted a change.
Then I heard about GGBC and thought I’d give it a try and I’m so happy I did. Thanks to all the GGBC girls and coaches for their support and motivation, I have managed to shed 22 pounds and 10 inches off my body.
For anyone thinking about joining – STOP THINKING ABOUT IT AND JUST DO IT!!! All the girls are here to help, motivate and support each other. Not only have I changed to a healthier lifestyle, I have also made a bunch of new friends from the GG family. I’m so glad that I joined, it’s the best decisions I’ve made.”
Natalie Mok – Markham, ON
My life before joining GG transformation centre was being active the as much as I can. I joined a gym 2 years prior to GG which meant going to the gym 3-5 times a week and if not the gym, doing some kind of physical activity.
I can confidently say that I lost 35-40 pounds on my own. When I joined GG just over a year ago, I felt like my weight hit a plateau and really wanted to build body strength and tone; I haven’t looked back since!
Since joining GG, I participated in my very first program with the SI6 second group of girls. I lost 8 pounds which was my goal and 2 inches off my waist.
If you’re on the fence about joining, JUST DO IT!!! Don’t ever doubt yourself; when you join GG Transformation Centre, you will automatically be welcomed and supported by not only amazing and dedicated trainers, but also fellow members who will support you 100% and push you to be the best you can be.
Pamela Seto – Markham, ON
I have always been very active and athletic but it got harder to fit into my schedule when I started working full time. Sports for me have always been the most fun and exciting way to stay in shape but when there is no time for sports, you have to resort to the gym. Since I didn’t enjoy the gym and had no motivation to go, I was paying for a membership that I was using a few times a month. I would have spurts of motivation throughout the month but they never lasted longer than a week or 2 max. My fitness life was basically non-existent and it was starting to show.
When I did make it to the gym, I would only go if there were classes. I went to all the different classes like body pump and toning classes, tried the salsa and latin dancing ones, and even went through a phase where I really enjoyed cycling. But nothing ever lasted because they all became so repetitive. I also didn’t like how they all had the same pace and if you could do better than everyone else, you would still have to maintain the pace of the class. It wasn’t a very challenging atmosphere and I slowly stopped showing up.
When I joined boot camp my main areas of concern have always been my stomach and thighs. I have a small upper body so when I put on weight it goes directly to my upper thighs, then my stomach. I felt results (pain) after the first bootcamp class, and that’s how I knew it was going to work.
I saw actual results after 2 weeks of doing the classes 2 times a week. After the first month I noticed a lot of my work pants and jeans weren’t as tight on me and I had to start wearing belts. My favorite part was that my legs looked leaner and longer and my bum was rounder and perkier Overall I looked toned, lean, and a lot healthier and got so many compliments from everyone.
If you’re sick of routine and want a challenge you have to come try this bootcamp! It has everything from high intensity exercises, to great ab workouts, and the most effective circuits out there. The trainers are always introducing new exercises and workout routines, look out for you to make sure your form is perfect, and are always encouraging you every step of the way. I LOVE IT and hope I never move because I don’t know what I’ll do without this class.
Irina C. – Professional Fitness Model
“Before boot camp my fitness life was pretty active. I would go to the gym 4x a week, play dodgeball once a week. After awhile at the gym I started hitting a plateau. At first, I saw the pounds shedding and then gradually…I didn’t see a difference anymore. My arms and waist got smaller but after a few years of doing the same cardio classes, I just didn’t see any results.
After taking boot camp I went from weighing 113 lbs to 106 lbs. I can’t remember the last time I was this weight! I’m definately eating waaaaaay healthier.
I look back at what and how I used to eat – digusting, blah. I would work out but think “oh, I just worked out, i’m going to have a Big Mac, it’s ok” Now, I’m definately watching what I eat, how many times I eat and just paying attention to my food lifestyle now.
I do admit, I’ll cheat once and awhile but not to the extreme. It’s more like – good carbs at night or fruit after 8 etc. I say it’s good cheating hehe.
If I were to say anything to someone that I looking for a boot camp in Markham, I would say to them….You should definately join.
If you want to change yourself on the outside with your appearance and the inside with eating healthy and feeling better about yourself thanGo Girl Bootcamp is for you. It definately helped me get my butt into gear! I feel so much healthier, lighter and better about myself!”

Fitness has always been a part of my life in one form or another. But this changed about 10 years ago when life threw me a curve ball. I shattered my elbow in a ski accident and it took some time to regain strength and mobility in my arm. Just as I was feeling better, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I am now a proud survivor but those drugs really affected my energy level and overall body composition.
Hey, when life serves you lemons…you have to make lemonade…it was time to focus on fitness, health and my own well being. It was a slow process of going to fitness and yoga classes here and there and always feeling dissatisfied.
My neighbour suggested I give Go Girl Bootcamps a try. After a free trial class, I was hooked. I won’t lie to you, workouts were damn hard and still are but I was committed and now I see big changes in my fitness and energy levels! I owe a huge Thank You to Coaches Dan, Rosie, Stephanie and Stella!
I had great success in the SI6 program. My goal was to lose 10lbs. I really didn’t think I would even lose half of that since my weight has been virtually the same for the last 5 years regardless of what ‘program’ I was on.
Well the SI6 Program was different, I lost 10.8lbs and 8.2in overall! What made the difference for me this time is without question the coaching and the support of all the other ladies on the program! I found my magic bullet at Go Girl Bootcamps.
My journey hasn’t ended yet, I’m already signed up for Round 2 of SI6!
To anyone that is thinking of joining….Just do it! You won’t regret it. Invest in yourself because you are worth it. Amazing workouts and the coaches were always great at modifying certain exercises for me because of my injury. If you are committed and with the help of all the dedicated coaches at Go Girl Bootcamps, you will reach your goals!

“I have taken the boot camp since 2008 and I love it.Before the camp my immune system was not that strong andI was getting sick all the time. After taking the camp I started realizing that my metabolism got faster. Istarted feeling lighter and healthier. I dropped 3 dress sizes and started to fit into pants that I got 5 years ago!
If anyone is thinking about taking the camp I say, “Just do it!”You won’t regret it at all!”
Kai An Chiang – Markham, Ontario
“I’d always been bigger but that was when I noticed the biggest changed. Within a span of a year and a half, I gained a lot of weight. At first I didn’t notice, and that was the worst part. I didn’t realize where I’d gone, and it wasn’t until I came home and started to look at my travel pictures and tried to try on my old clothes and then I realized that I had really not been paying attention and it got a bit out of hand.
Since joining boot camp I’ve gone down about 43 pounds, and I’ve gone from a size 18 to a size 10.
Now I LOVE going shopping, buying new clothes for my new body!
I couldn’t have done it without the support of Dan, Linda, Rosie, Janet and all of my GGBC’ers who work out with me every single day.”

So as you all know, I have recently join a bootcamp that has literally given me results that I never thought was possible. I wanted to share my experience and why I think a body transformation can transform your life but for starters, here is a before and after photo of me that I wanted to share!
I first joined the bootcamp with a friend because she did not want to go alone and since it was only a one month commitment, I decided to accompany her. I ended up staying while she stopped after the one month.
The workouts were insane and the diet was difficult but I followed it anyway and within a month, I could instantly see the results.
People started telling me how good I looked and I started buying more clothes because for once, I had the body that I have always wanted but never thought was possible. Before, I was always conscious of my body just because I never had the perfect body. I was always worried about what people would think if I wore a certain dress or a certain shirt but now all those worries are gone!
It wasn’t only my body that transformed, it was also my life. I was more confident in myself and I started to attract things in my life that were positive. I was aware of what was possible and that I can achieve anything if I have a set of goals, a system to follow and a great support system to lean on. My bootcamp has all of that and more!
The group of ladies are awesome because they always push to your limits and when the workout is done, we all give each other high fives because we have completed the workouts together!
Go Girl bootcamps have not only changed my life but they have changed so many women’s lives as well. Every time I go into the gym, I always hear a woman with a great success story of how they were able to reach their target weight and complain that they have to buy a whole new wardrobe because all their old clothes are too loose. Wouldn’t that be a great problem to have. If you want transformation, I suggest you start with your health because when your body is healthy everything else will follow.
A body transformation can transform your life!
Sheena Yap Chan – Markham, ON
Before going to Go Girl I was out of shape, unable to get into a healthy routine and going to the gym by myself wasn’t helping me. After awhile I decided to give them a try and I love it here!
After doing 4 months of their Transformation Challenges I lost 25 pounds, went down from sizes 8-10 down to 2-4 in pants!
I’m more confident in myself. I’m pushing myself constantly towards a new goal and am always optimistic I’ll be able to meet my new goal.
If you are looking to make a lifestyle change then this is the right place for you. This place is like a second family, they motivate you along the way and help you stick to your plan. The trainers here are awesome and are very helpful!
Nicole Switzer – Markham, ON
After seeing pictures of myself this summer and being really unhappy with how I looked, I decided it was time to make some changes in my life. September 2011 I began to revamp my eating habits, and get back to my old athletic self. We have everything I need to use at home, getting over the intitial slump of starting again was extremely difficult. After two months of inconsistent workouts with minimal results, I found Gogirl Bootcamps. That’s when everything changed! The atmosphere of training with women of all ranges in abilities is what pushes me to keep going! The trainers each have their own unique way to get through to you so you never feel like your falling into a rut with the same old boring routine. For the first time in my life I feel encouraged and motivated and truly believe that my body will be Honeymoon-ready at the end of July! Make the decision to join us, and let us support you on your journey to a healthy, and sexy body!
Before joining GGBC my fitness regimen consisted of hot yoga, ballet, walking on my treadmill and occasionally something offered by my local community center. After I had my first child to when my third child was about 3 years old, my physical activity was very sporadic to non existent. So, at the time I thought I was doing pretty decently (it was a vast improvement over the previous several years!). I realize now that I was mistaken.
I started GGBC on a one month trial deal. At the time I was not optimistic it was something I was going to stick with. There are so many things that separate GGBC from others places. The encouraging, supportive and motivating environment is the stand out for me. The coaches, Dan, Rosie and Steph do an amazing job creating this but I’ve always been amazed by the women that you are surrounded with every time you do a workout. When you’re tired and your muscles are burning there is always someone there saying “You can do it!”, “Come on, just one more!”, “Great job!”, etc., etc., etc. And the workouts create results – I’ve never been in better shape!
I am stronger, more energetic and feel great! Because of these things it has also given me the confidence to try other new things.
This past winter I learned to snowboard, something I was always scared to learn because I thought I would just injure myself. In the past I was never able to run, my knees would hurt after even 1 km. Now, I run pain free and recently, just completed my first Spartan race. I never dreamed I would ever do that! I am also able to do more active things with my kids – now they have to keep up with me!
This has been the only thing that I’ve tried that has actually changed my body. Although I was never really ‘overweight’, I always had the ‘muffin top’. This has been greatly reduced and my pants size has gone from a 4 to a 0!
If you want to look and feel great – put any excuses aside and just go for it! It may very well be one of the best decisions you could make in your life!

I was able to wear my wedding dress with so much confidence! and Iloved it! I actually wouldn’t stop posing for pictures! It was such a good day!
Before joining Go Girl I was working out at a gym with a trainer – but once the cost became too much, I lost motivation to go the the gym as often. Not motivated to workout at a high level on my own, so I joined the boot camp.
Since joining my fitness level has become so much higher! People comment all the time about how much I’ve changed the shape of my body. I’m not a huge believer in stepping on a scale, however I believe my clothes when I put them on and they are too big! At least 2 pant sizes! I’ve become addicted to attending boot camp! It’s a very big part of my week. Don’t be scared away by the first few classes, it will get easier, it will make a difference. All the girls in the room will help you out and motivate you on days that you don’t want to be there!
“I’ve always hated looking at myself in the mirror. I never feel I’m skinny enough compare to all those around me. But that has all change since I’ve met with my very special trainer Dan.
Self consciousness has been a problem for me for the longest time. I never liked how I looked, and I always wanted to lose those flabby stomach and chubby arms.
Some times, I’d get so desperate to lose weight I’d starve myself for days. I’ve also tried a lot of other methods in the market to lose weight like pills, special food, or the famous “only cardio exercise” training, but my weight would fluctuate with no real results. Since I have a body of muscle also, losing weight has always been difficult for me. (Yes, not even starving works). But this has all change since I met with Dan.
With Dan’s patient training and extensive teaching,I’ve lose the weight I wanted, plus gaining the self confidence. I’ve finally achieved the flat abs I’ve always dreamt of, plus learned a lot about living a healthy life. The beauty about Dan’s program is that he will not only train you physically, but will also teach you thing to do outside of the gym that will accelerate the result, such as ways to eat, ways to live and ways to think mentally.
He’s always there to give positive motivation and advice to everything you do, so you’d never feel like working out is a stressful tiring thing. Within a year, Dan has worked wonder on my body inside out. I’ve lost almost10 inches in my overall body, I’ve also went from a size 25 to 23 waist.
With the newly gain confidence and body, I’ve challenged myself to compete in the 2008 Miss Chinese Toronto Beauty Pageant. From the competition, I’ve won the title as Miss Intelligence. But what I truly believe I’ve gain is my self confidence and a life long knowledge to healthy living. I owe it all to Dan.”

Before I joined GG Boot Camp in September of 2012, my fitness level was mediocre. I didn’t belong to any recreational sports, although I had joined a few fitness programs in the pass. The only exercise I was getting on a regular basis was taking my dog for walks around my neighborhood.
So far, just from attending 3 Boot Camp classes a week I’ve lost 10lbs, my goal is another 10lbs by the end of January. Now, I’m wearing a size 5 in dress pants and small tops. My size 11 skinny jeans are too big now and require a belt!! The one thing I’m enjoying the most, is my energy levels are at steady and constant high level.
I no longer come home and fall asleep on the couch after work. I have energy all threw the day and evening. Working in a fast paced environment, the energy I have now has only given me much greater success to accomplish my daily duties. The best part is my colleagues, clients, friends and family have all noticed such a positive change.
Anyone who’s considering joining, I’d say “Take the Leap” It’s the best gift you’ll give yourself this year!!! Not only am I more confident, I’m feeling better and happy in my own skin now. I cant wait to reach my personal goals, and see how I feel and look then. It’s been all about personal success and accomplishment for me.
The trainers, Dan, Linda, Rossie and Stephanie are all wonderful and even though they will accommodate you and your fitness levels, they will also work with you so you reach your fitness goals.
Valerie O’neil Gahagan – Markham, ON
Before joining Go Girl I was always unhappy with my weight and how I looked. I never thought I could ever have the will power to eat healthy, or even just live a healthy life style. I already had an athletic look but my body was never really toned to go with it. I never really thought about what I ate or just made a lot of justifications with my self so I would feel okay about what I’m eating.
Before joining I was very lazy and made up a lot of excuses for not going to the gym or doing something active. Like everyone else I said it will be a new years resolution. It took almost two months in the new year but I eventually joined the boot camp and I absolutely love it.
After taking the program I saw amazing results. I lost a little more than 15 lbs. total and went from a size 10 to a size 6. I honestly never thought I could ever drop in size because I’ve never been lower than size 10 since high school, either up or back down to ten. I’ve also gotten some comments from people and that always makes me feel good.
Joining Go Girl could be one of the best decisions you make if you’re looking to join a gym. When I joined I knew I wanted a boot camp style because of the variety of exercises and the class setting. I found that this was everything I was looking for plus more.
The support from the trainers and from fellow members has been amazing from the beginning, even when I didn’t know anyone. All the members of the transformation center has been very supportive and motivating. I also like the fact the all the trainers know your name, making the classes more personal. I have never regretted joining and am always looking forward to go to the next class.
Lianne Chu – Markham, ON
Before Go Girl I was eating very unhealthy and not exercising at all.
At first I really did not know what to expect but as soon I was done my first class I knew I was addicted. The energy at boot camp is amazing, and the workouts are never the same.
Since joining boot camp I lost 13lbs!
The support of all the coaches and the wonderful girls keep me motivated to push myself every day. I have to admit at the age of 40 and a mother of 2 I feel and look better than I did in my twenties and thirties!
Once you try Go Girl I guarantee you will want to come back. I did!!
Elli – Markham, ON
I just had the baby, so it was really hard for me to do fitness, but then I noticed that I was relatively big, and I wanted to lose weight, so I went to the gym and I tried to do that on my own. I didn’t really see any results, and, food wise, I was still eating the same things. I didn’t really pay too much attention to that. And then I just noticed I wasn’t going anywhere.
I couldn’t see myself in the future. When we would take pictures, I just couldn’t. When I would see myself, I was like, That’s not me. That’s not who I was. I looked like a completely different person. I just couldn’t stand seeing my picture.
Since joining the Markham boot camp I’ve lost about at least 25 pounds. I went from a size 14, now to a size 8.
I have a lot more energy. When I follow the nutrition plan, I notice when I followed the nutrition plan and incorporated the veggies, the protein, and I stayed away from a lot of the sugar and juice, no pop, you notice just a drastic change in your body and just energy wise. I have more energy to do a lot of things.
After having my 3rd child – I was starting to get in the habit of buying clothes that hid my shoulders, arms and stomach.
I started to feel like a hypocrite – because even though I looked relatively slim, I knew I wasn’t really healthy because I wasn’t physically active. I had great excuses why I had no time to exercise…. looking after my 3 kids, being a full-time dentist, and running a medical and dental clinic.
When my sister told me that I should try a class with her, I started to give my excuses – and she turned around and said “NFE! I’m picking you up and you better be ready!” and I’m so thankful that she did.
Overall I’ve lost about 6lbs and most importantly, I’m in the best shape (strength and cardio) of my adult life.
I was part of the Go Girls Spartan team a week ago – and that day marked my 1 year anniversary of trying my first Go Girl class.
I’ve met some amazing friends, I’ve become a “morning person” (I love my 6am and 9am ladies!).
Andrea Ho-Fatt Wang – Markham, ON
“Before boot camp I hardly worked out and occasionally did racquet sports.After doing boot camp I lost a total 23 pounds of body fat.
The boot camp is so different from the gym because You are not relaying on machines to do your workout..but actually using weights and your own body to get in shape.
Therefore you see results faster and keep seeing results if you continue.
If you want to try the boot camp You definitely should join, you will definitely see results if you stick with the program and follow the nutrition plan.”
Maggie Woo – Markham, ONtario
I’ve been with GGBC for about 4 years. It’s seen me through some important life events, most recently, the birth of my little baby.
Thanks to the GGBC trainers and the other girls, I was able to continue exercising up to my due date and felt really healthy. They were always encouraging and supportive; I never felt like I was taking the journey alone.
I was able to return to exercising a couple of months after having my baby and I felt like I was coming home to a family. It was such a fantastic and motivating environment.
By my baby’s 6 month birthday, I had lost most of my baby weight and was featured on the Marilyn Dennis wearing a bikini!
There is no way that I would have accomplished that without the love and support of my GGBC family!
Jenn Smith – Markham, ON
“Boot camp has been such an amazing experience. I had been looking for a hard core work out. I wanted to be pushed and yelled at. I crave every class even if it takes me a while to get there, once your there its like a drug you want more!I have lost 5 pounds of scale weight and 15 inches all over the body! Just a few steps closer to my goal!”
Amanda Bishop – Markham, ONtario
My story at GGBC started few years ago when I decided to challenge myself and try something new. I had no idea what I was getting myself into and being a bit skeptical I kept my gym membership. Just a loss of money, I never went back to my regular gym!!!
I had always been active, the problem was not that I did not know what to do; it was that I did not have the discipline and motivation to follow through. This is where CCGB made a difference. The trainers Dan, Rosie & Steph are very friendly, very dedicated and inspiring.
They have their own success stories that keep everybody motivated. The girls are amazing, always supportive and pushing themselves to the next level. Every session is different and meant to get you, as an individual, to your potential.
Going back to my story, after I took a break from exercising during my second pregnancy, I knew that the CGBC is going to be the solution to losing the unwanted baby fat, and I was right.
I lost over 25 pounds in less than 4 months and the best part is that I kept it off since. I strongly believe that signing up for GGBC is one of the best things that I have done for myself.

“Prior to joining the Go Girl Transformation Centre, I had a very active lifestyle playing competitive tennis. While playing for Western & U of T’s varsity tennis teams, I often struggled with overuse injuries, as my body was unable to handle the physical stress of the sport.
I felt as though I was not as agile and strong as I wanted to be. I decided to join Go Girl Transformation Centre to improve my fitness and strength, and have seen great results! I have gained agility and endurance, shown by being able to run down more balls on the court that I would have previously given up on.
Because I am stronger now, I no longer struggle with the same arm and shoulder injuries that have held me back in the past, and this has improved my self-confidence. To anyone that wants to join, I would say – GO FOR IT! There is nothing to lose, and only new friends and a better health, to gain.”
Jocelyn Luk – Markham, ON
Right before I started, I felt lazy, and ashamed of my body. I was always use to being the fun one having a great time during outings and looking great and stylish in anything I wore, but I stopped taking care of myself and I was the biggest I’ve ever been in my whole life. I started wearing boring clothes, and that didn’t make it better.
It was the Nov in 2012 after I came back from vacation from DR when I went on a scale and knew I had to do something especially with my wedding creeping up later in the year. I started with Hot Yoga,it was good but something was missing. Then I got invited to GGBC.
Immediately in the first 4 weeks, I lost 10 Lbs. In my mind I was thinking… how? My entire goal for the next 8 months were to lose 10 lbs! After 6 weeks I’ve lost a total of 15 lbs, and now all I needed to do was to keep it up and get even more toned!
People noticed that I lost weight, and more importantly I noticed I was fitting in my pretty dresses and clothes again. There’s even this one that I bought 5 years ago with the tags on them still. Ultimately they helped me get into my best shape for my ultimate day …my wedding!
If you’re thinking about joining then take action now! The longer you wait, the longer it will take you to feel that much better about yourself and look Awesome!
Cindy Li – Markham, ON
I have struggled with my weight my entire life. Healthy food options and behaviours were not something my family modeled.
When my son was born, I knew I desperately wanted more for him. I joined some fitness classes on mat leave, tried out some different diets, but never saw results and quickly became discouraged. I saw the ad for Go Girls and thought “Hey, why not?”.
It was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. Since starting last year, I have dropped 17 lbs and 3 sizes. What used to be my skinny jeans are now my fat pants!
I see myself as capable of things I never thought I could do. I used to make excuses for why I couldn’t do things – now I’ve gone from jogging around the block to running 10k races. Next stop: half marathon!
To anyone that is looking to join – It will be one of the best choices you ever make.
The changes to my body are nothing compared to the changes to my overall well-being. Not going to lie, it is HARD WORK. You have to challenge yourself physically, as well as open yourself to change your beliefs about food.
Victoria Mills – Stouffville, ON
Fitness and getting outdoors had always been a must with my husband and I, when we had our first son I set goals to keep active and ran my first triathlon within a year of his birth. I was in the best shape of my life and felt great, the baby weight melted off.
Then my second son arrived June 2012, and a year after his birth, I was devastated, I was about to return to work and none of my clothes fit. I was caring 20 pounds more weight, I was tired and I had not been able to get into any sort of exercise routine.
In April 2013 I was determined to figure it out, and joined a 6 week challenge with Go Girl Transformation Centre. I immediately saw the results and was able to fit into my work clothes.
Go Girl gave me focus, held me accountable and taught me the basics of eating right and keeping fit.
I weighed in at 149 lbs April 2013 and a year later I am now 129lbs for a total of 20 lbs of weight lost!
It’s now become a way of life, eating healthy from the challenges has led me to become gluten free, I always knew I had food allergies and my gut has never felt better.
My energy levels are high, I am a better mom, and my children are very supportive. Seeing what we do, my oldest son is excited to run his first kid triathlon, I realize my journey is not all about me, its teaching him how to be active and that its fun.
Thanks to Dan, and his team for inspiring me and hooking me on this training.
