There’s a new bootcamp in town, and it’s specifically designed for brides-to-be. Learn more about the 8- or 12-week program that can help you look and feel your best on the big day.


Need to get in shape for your wedding but not quite sure where to start? Blushing Brides Bootcamp by Queen City Kettlebell offers a comprehensive 8- or 12-week program designed just for you that will help you get healthy and toned just in time for the wedding bells to ring.

The bridal bootcamp program is comprised of high-intensity interval training, a nutrition plan built around whole foods and realistic goal-setting that will guarantee results and ensure you look your best for the big day.030915HEALTH2

The 8- or 12-week programs include goal-setting and planning sessions, orientation training sessions, three 1-hour high-intensity workouts per week, small group settings that foster personalized training, private sessions with a certified trainer and nutrition specialist, bi-weekly measurements, a variety of class times, phone and email support and a workout and photo journal to chart your progress.

Daniel Wittekind, owner of Queen City Kettlebell, says that the program is designed to help brides-in-the-making eliminate some of their health issues and concerns that are often pushed off to the side during wedding planning. “Instead of having the additional fitness component on the table and stressing over it, we take it off and leave all the decision making to our expert coaches,” he says.

Participants of the program will get an introductory kettlebell class to teach them basic kettlebell skills as well as the weekly workout sessions. There is no bouncing or jumping, strictly weight training, so you don’t have to be too coordinated to reap the benefits of this bootcamp or doing monotonous workouts on the treadmill, stair climber or elliptical.

Wittekind says that the cost of the program varies depending on your needs. “This isn’t a one size fits all program, and sometimes that means some participants can afford to attend more often than others,” he says. “However, that shouldn’t mean that anyone willing to work for their goals should be left out.”

The best part? Blushing Brides Bootcamp offers a money-back guarantee for brides – not that they anticipate falling short in helping anyone reach their goals. According to Blushing Brides Bootcamp, those who fail to achieve the goals agreed to during the initial consultation will receive a refund of 50 percent of the bride’s original cost as long as all other factors including class attendance, food journaling and dietary guidelines are followed.

In addition to their program for brides, Wittekind adds that they’re currently working on a program for postpartum mothers. Although the details are still being worked out and the initial beta group is still going through the program, he says that participants can expect the same level of professionalism you get with the Blushing Brides Bootcamp program.

Queen City Kettlebell is located at 2577 Duck Creek Road in Cincinnati. To learn more, visit, reach out to or call program organizer Ben Eisenmenger at 513-549-0552.
