Can Kim Kardashian's Trainer Whip a Real Woman into Shape?
Find out if 30 days with the reality star's bootcamp trainer can transform one woman's body into a toned, fat-burning machine
Me? A masochist?This is the crazy part of the whole Bootcamp experience -- while I dread going each time, I can't not go. I go on the weekdays, on the weekends. I go when I'm tired, and when I'm dealing with serious PMS.
I used to scoff at the idea of exercise addiction, but after speaking with Pamela Peeke, MD, spokesperson for the National chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine, and author of "Body for Life for Women," I find out that you actually can get physiologically hooked on exercise. "When you work out regularly, you're actually changing your genetic expression," she tells me. "That's how potent and powerful exercise is."
So, maybe the workout fiends in this city aren't so weird after all. And I have to admit, I'm psyched my newfound exercise habit is one that I can take pride in -- unlike my Diet Coke addiction. In fact, I can't take pride in much of my nutrition plan. If I don't work just as hard on my diet as my workout, am I just chasing my tail?
