Even though we all train in “sunny” Santa Monica, Winter and Fall temps can make it occasionally necessary to insulate for a chilly beach boot camp workout. But while parkas are Winter essentials in snow country, layering that much bulk on your body in California "weather" can lead to an uncomfortable, sweaty boot camp.

With all that said, here are 10 Essential Workout Gear tips for Big Mike's Boot Camp.Read More
