Ford – Simplicity Fitness: Boot Camp

Congrats to the first Ford – Simplicity Fitness boot camp participants!  See images and testimonials below of their experience with the program.  For more information about the program and to participate in a future bootcamp, contact us.

 

Mission:

The Ford – Simplicity Fitness Program is dedicated to providing models with a holistic approach to optimizing their health (body, mind and heart) in order to maximize their career potential and longevity.

Guiding Principles:

  • Clean Nutrition – Whole foods that promote alkalinity and decrease inflammation.
  • Functional Fitness – An integrated approach to maximizing fitness capabilities emphasizing balance, flexibility and strength in all planes of motion to achieve a lean, fit body in a minimum amount of time.
  • Wellness – A strong, centered heart and mind attained through conscious living and meditation practice.

“My vision for the program began several years ago when I was traveling the world as a model during my early to mid twenties. Though I consider that time to be a mostly positive one, I saw and experienced first hand the toll the industry can take on your physical and emotional wellbeing.

What I recognized is that most models aren’t realizing their full potential because of poor lifestyle choices and as a result their careers are cut short. This is due in part to the hectic nature of the industry and the lack of a real support system from virtually any agency in the business.  I want to help Ford RBA be the first agency to change that!”

- Danny Collier – Simplicity Fitness Creater / Ford Model

I foresee other agencies in the U.S. and abroad adopting this program because it just makes sense.  By fostering a climate where vital and healthy bodies are lauded and encouraged, the Simplicity Fitness program will change some of the negative connotations associated with our industry and empower men and women, models and non-models, to make healthier lifestyle choices.”

- Sheree Hartwell – Ford RBA Owner

“I joined the Simplicity Fitness boot camp because I wanted to learn new ways to eat cleaner and train to keep my body fit and toned.  Mission accomplished! I loved the healthy recipes Danny provided and the functional training routines were killer, especially for the core.  Eat clean and train dirty, pretty much sums up my experience with the program.  Thanks Danny!!”

Favorite Functional Training Exercise: 

TRX Forward Rollout – There’s so many other ways than just crunches to work the abs and core on the TRX…This one was my favorite!

“The head booker at Ford came to me with the opportunity to participate in an innovative and unique new health and wellness program.  The boot camp consisted of TRX Suspension and Rip training and incorporating whole plant-based foods into my eating habits. After just the first week, I was noticing major changes!

I had always been a free weights kind of guy, but after using the functional TRX training systems, I don’t think I’ll ever go back. They provide such functional movements during strength training and each move always revolves around the core. Anytime I need to adjust the difficulty, I can simply change my position or speed. Along with the training, I changed the focus of my diet to whole-plant based foods and the VegaOne and VegaSport for my supplements. Eating this way not only improved my strength and appearance, but it also keeps me energized throughout the day, helps me sleep better, and keeps me engaged in the nutrients that I put in to my body, which is so crucial in today’s society.

Six weeks later, Danny’s Simplicity Fitness program has changed my body, lifestyle, and outlook on health and nutrition for the good! I look forward to learning and growing more with this lifestyle. Thanks, Danny!”

“When I heard about the Simplicity Fitness program it seemed like the perfect opportunity to get in the best shape possible before leaving for Japan on a modeling contract later this spring.  What I loved about the program is that it focused on far more than just physical fitness, it focused on overall health; body, mind and heart.  The program covered everything from stress management, to clean nutrition and functional training.  I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to be apart!”

“I joined the Simplicity Fitness 6 week boot camp because I wanted to bulk up and add some lean muscle mass in as healthy a way as possible.  Danny provided a clean nutrition plan customized to my goals, focusing on high quality plan-based protein combined with starchy carbs like sweet potatoes, yams squash, and brown rice.  I didn’t realize how good some the healthy foods were and how easy it was to implement them into my lifestyle.  Also staying consistent with the functional training classes was key.  Having never tried TRX before, the style of training was completely new to me, but I loved it and I saw results quickly.  My body fat has dropped and my bicep and chest measurements have increased.  Thanks Danny!!”

“I’ve been interested in incorporating more whole, plant foods into my diet because of all the health and beauty benefits but didn’t know where to start.  Danny’s Simplicity Fitness program was the perfect introduction to this cleaner way of living.  He provided meal plans, recipes and guidance whenever I needed it.  I feel like I’ve made a complete lifestyle change with the way I eat and I feel so much better because of it.  I love trying new recipes and not feeling guilty after eating them as they’re all super healthy and nutrient dense.  Thanks Danny for helping me get started on this new, healthier path!”

“I’ve been going to the gym doing the same workout routine for years and I wanted to try something new and unconventional.  When Sheree at Ford told me about Simplicity Fitness and the boot camp for models I knew I wanted to try it.  I had seen the TRX but I didn’t really know how to use it.   Danny’s functional training class featuring HIIT on and off the TRX suspension and Rip trainers was exactly the type of change in routine I needed.   I saw a drop in body fat and I’m functionally stronger than I’ve been.  I definitely recommend Danny’s program to anyone who wants to try something different and see results fast!”

Favorite Functional Training Exercise:

Rip Pitchfork on the TRX Rip Trainer – Everything on the Rip Trainer works the core but these things are killer and really deliver a full body workout.
