Bootcamp's History & Content

After ten years of training from gym to gym David Boivin, realized that the pedestrian training programs offered by the “Big 3” fitness factories were less than dynamic and far from inspiring.

In fact, like most of the people he trained, he found them to be boring and stagnant. David was part of what he coined “cookie-cutter fitness” where assembly line work-out regimes were designed for one size fits all.

He dreamed of becoming the solution where the trainer had to be as unique as the student. Inspired, David saw the need for a dynamic and engaging work-out. Studying best practices of the best trainers, he created “Nu Tae Kwon Wei” -- a revolutionary method of physical fitness never witnessed before.

He wanted to keep fitness simple, clear and diverse. Have fun and get tore up from the floor up using the fundamentals of nutrition, Tae Kwon Do and Weightlifting.

Through this, Boot Camp* was born a class that is far more personal than any other “group” training program on the market. Complimenting this results oriented program, David added Yoga, Football, Jiu Jitsu, Soccer and Boxing to encompass a broader and more comprehensive fitness regime.

In short, Boot Camp is loaded with a variety of sports and exercises that are motivating and engaging! Time and time again people shy away from fitness and classes because they look difficult or complicated. Not with Boot Camp. Boot Camp is easy to learn yet more challenging than anything you’ve ever experienced.

Beginners will learn kicks while Intermediates develop punches and blocks. Finally, the Advanced will become experts in combinations of choreographed action moves, defensive and offensive all while wearing ankle and wrist weights weighing anywhere from 3-6 pounds depending on skill level.

Following the theory that your body will build a tolerance to anything and everything, Tore Up’s trainers are on a constant never ending pursuit to shock your body with a wide array of exercise and techniques. Depending on who shows up for role call, the Boot Camp format is always different. - the dread of monotony is never there. Always new. Always fresh. Always Tore Up!

*Boot Camp is $10 a session and is on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7pm At the Valley GYM located at, 12506 Magnolia Blvd. in Valley Village.
