OBC56: The Original Boot Camp

OBC56 is a transformative mental and physical toughness program that will elevate your perception of yourself, and what you can achieve. This is more than a challenge, or fitness program. It’s a structured system inspired by military training.

BASIC TRAINING to become who you’re capable of being.

Throughout the experience, you’ll feel yourself getting stronger, happier and healthier as each day passes. You’ll find self-esteem rise as you start to feel organized and committed, in all the things that you always said you would do. 

This journey of independence, pride and team work will become your framework to check all the boxes of personal wellness.

OBC56 is designed especially for those who’ve recovered from disordered relationships with food and exercise. I’ve taken great care to make it non-triggering and/or defeating. Each day celebrates success, but doesn’t let you slack off.

Successful completion of the program requires ‘best’ score within 100 days of starting. If you miss a task one day, you must start your 56 day count again.

Cat Smiley Boot Camp on Vancouver Island follows OBC56 program, smashing out the required curriculum throughout the week. OBC follows a unique system ‘good, better, best’ of training targets. The system includes strength, balance, aerobic conditioning, agility, coordination, power, anaerobic and endurance workouts – all at beginner fitness level. This is why Cat Smiley Boot Camp takes all day! There’s a ton to get through, when you get back into shape properly. It’s an ebb-and-flow choreography that allows athlete management in a way that makes everyone feel successful.



It’s a privilege and honor to be partnering with Anna (last name withheld) as my OBC56 pioneer. Anna is the most gangsta lady that you could ever hope to train with. She’s funny, smart, kind and determined while representing each of the military core values of honor, courage and commitment. 

I’m on a five month, 100 pound weight loss project with her as I write this. January and February 2021 will be her final 56 days of her 5 month stay at Cat Smiley Boot Camp. We’ll be using this time to put together OBC56 as an official program.

I had a 3-DVD series… definitely a project that wasn’t worth my time! Isn’t it crazy how we get swept away into doing the ‘should’s’ at our own detriment. Amazon is the only party that will benefit from you purchasing the DVD from them, so I’ve scraped the content for you below.
