Gumsaba Boot Camp is a community of healthy, vital, energetic people who love the outdoors. The confines of a gym are of no interest to us! Breathe the fresh air, meet fun people, see beautiful sunrises and enjoy tough drills that will give you a new lease on life.

Gumsaba coaches are trained to help you find the joy in fitness so you can keep it up for life. Our programs give you a platform to learn and grow and will continually challenge you to be your best. We encourage you to commit to yourself over any one else. Unlike the gym, we actually want you to come to class! Our individualized programs are designed so that you can work around any injuries you have and still get a killer workout in. Your instructor will help you modify and give you exercises to improve and rehab your injuries.

Danville, Walnut Creek and Lamorinda fitness classes are one hour long during morning hours.

WOMENS, MENS and CO-ED classes are available.

What do our clients think?

Debbie Grauman
"I am a Gumsaba Boot Camp devotee, maybe even a groupie!  I’ve worked out for years, with and without trainers, have run the Boston marathon, done triathlons, you name it – I’ve tried it.  I’ve never found a more complete and comprehensive total body workout than that offered by Michelle and her boot camp program. She has found the recipe for the perfect mix of cardio, strength, weights and core training.

I started out with the original boot camp owners, Tim and Liesbet, for whom Michelle originally worked.  The difference she brought as an instructor was immediately noticeable. Her eventual acquisition of the boot camp program was a benefit to all of her “campers”. I can’t believe that I look forward to getting out of bed at 5:00 am daily Monday through Friday to attend this outdoor class; rain, shine or freezing weather.  Her energy inspires me to push myself hard everyday and I can’t believe how much she can get me to do beyond that I had imagined.  She is inspirational, varies the workouts daily, makes them fun and creates a spirit of community where we all help each other achieve major milestones.  Michelle not only talks the talk, she can walk it as well – her fitness level is inspirational and amazing.  Not to be outdone, I’m in the best overall shape of my life in spite of being 15 + years older than her.  I’m fit, strong and confident.  This is echoed by the comments of my doctors (regular physician and chiropractor).  Come join us for an amazing workout and an even more amazing sunrise!" – Deb G.
"GREAT experience, I’ve been doing this for about 3 months now and WOW! Never thought that getting up at 5am would be so rewarding! I feel great, thanks to Michelle, she always seem to push and encourage you to do more! And wonderful co-boot campers also!!! Recommend Gumsaba to anyone wanting to exercise and enjoy doing it!" – Sherry M.
Tina Murphy
"I’ve tried just about every workout out there and none has compared to Gumsaba. The class is fun and motivating…..something I wouldn’t have said about any other workout. It is an amazing and addictive mix of cardio and strength training. It is something new and different each time so we never tire of the class. I can’t imagine ever going back to working out indoors. Being a working mom with two kids, the time I spend at Bootcamp

is the daily recharge that I need!" – Tina M.

Will I lose weight?
Loosing weight happens when you burn more calories than you intake. You will gain muscle tissue at camp but to get the best results we need to watch what goes in your mouth! To lose fat, you need to change your eating habits. Contact our nutrition partner for a nutrition consult.
What can I expect?
We do an even mix of strength, endurance and cardio training. We keep it fresh with new workouts every week, and make sure that you get a great calorie burn at every class. From strength training, to HIIT bouts and circuits to TRX, from Bosu to Kettle Bell training, our coaches employ the most effective modern techniques and equipment to keep your workouts dynamic, enlightening and exciting.
What do I bring?
You need a mat (PURCHASE ONE HERE), weights and water for boot camp. Clothing must be weather appropriate – layers, gloves and hat in the winter and sunblock all summer long. A towel for sweat is handy! You MUST have a signed waiver (DOWNLOAD IT HERE) to attend your first class.
