Getting motivated with South County Adventure Boot Camp for Women

December 9, 2010

NARRAGANSETT – It was 7:30 a.m. on Monday and I had enlisted in boot camp. Jumping jacks, mountain climbers, knee highs, hurdles and jump squats with a young fit couple standing before me blowing whistles. You’d think I’d go AWOL, but this wasn’t the typical military boot camp. Instead of being surrounded by grunting young men with buzzed haircuts, I was accompanied by fun, enthusiastic women trying to reach their fitness goals. I had committed myself to an hour of intense exercise with the South County Adventure Boot Camp for Women, a four-week program of fitness instruction, nutritional counseling and motivational training led by certified adventure fitness trainer and director, Ryan Bate.
Ryan Bate, who has a bachelor’s degree in community health education from Rhode Island College and who is certified by the American College of Sports Medicine began the boot camp last April with his wife, Danielle Bate.

A chance to help Save the Bay seal the deal

December 7, 2010

NEWPORT, R.I. – Children and adults get so excited about seeing large amounts of big seals in Narragansett Bay that they, well, blubber.
“What we hear most is that people feel very privileged simply to be out on the Bay – even if the weather is not perfect. Aside from that, we notice that small children are totally captivated by the experience,” said John Martin, Director of Public Relations for Save The Bay. “They can’t wait to board Alletta Morris, and boredom is never a problem. It’s that way from the youngest kids to the oldest adults.
“We also meet people from all around the world.” he added. “They flock to Newport, but most do not feel as though they have enjoyed the whole experience without being out on the Bay. The seals help make that connection and people are extremely curious about why they come, what they eat and how long they stay.”
