Burlington Body Camp is run and designed by personal trainers (and regular contributors to Inside Fitness Magazine) Dan and Matt (bios below).How is Burlington Body Camp Different?
Each hour-long class provides a total-body workout by combining cardiovascular and resistance training, which allows you to maximize calories and fat burned while sculpting, strengthening and toning your muscles. But how are we different? At Burlington Body Camp, we design a unique workout for every class. No two classes are alike. Why? Because this ensures that the body is always kept guessing, as it is keen to adapt to new stimulus. Not only that, but a new workout means no boredom. Each class is guaranteed to be fun and leave you feeling stronger and invigorated!

Matt Johnson, PTS
For more than ten years I’ve built my life around training both myself and my clients. I eat, sleep and breathe the fitness lifestyle; it’s what I love, but it wasn’t always that way.
For the majority of my life I took my athleticism for granted and didn’t support my body with the healthy lifestyle my activities required. This led to injuries and activity restrictions that eventually found me at a point where I was overweight and unhealthy. Luckily a diagnosis of high cholesterol changed my focus. I decided it was time to step up and take care of myself or suffer the consequences.
At first it was difficult, but as a veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces I knew that anything I desired was attainable with enough hard work. It’s not easy exercising when you’re not in shape (and I definitely wasn’t secure enough to work out in a public place) and healthy food just doesn’t taste good at first. However, I learned to look forward to the next invigorating workout and to crave foods that would benefit my body. This lifestyle change affected me so deeply that I knew I had to make it my job, so I became certified and discovered what I was born to do.
