CLARKSDALE –This summer, Coahoma Community College’s Fit for Life program is gearing up to host a “Fit for Life Nutrition and Fitness Bootcamp” open to CCC students, employees and the community.

The free bootcamp, scheduled for June 5 through July 28, is an 8-week program designed for a total body workout—including strength training, cardio, core and conditioning.

The camp will be led by Darius Davis, who currently serves as an instructor for CCC’s Fit for Life, and CCC Senior Financial Aid Counselor Taneshia Young, who serves as a Fit for Life Zumba instructor.

Now in his second year as an instructor, Davis said he has witnessed the program grow and is anxious to see continued success for its participants during the upcoming boot camp.

“Greatness lives on the inside of everyone, but the question is, how bad do you want it?” said Davis. “Success is only for those who want it.”

Young, who recently joined the program, is excited to not only instruct but be a part of the workout process as well.

I've been looking for a workout that I can enjoy and be motivated about at the same time,” said Young. “This has been much more engaging than simply walking the treadmill or lifting a few weights. …It's a workout that allows me to feel and see the results, all while having fun!”

In preparation for the bootcamp, the program will host a pre-bootcamp detox by providing smoothies, fruits and veggies in hopes of encouraging participants to replace their normal lunch with a healthy alternative.

The free healthy snacks will be available to interested individuals from 11 a.m. to noon May 22-26 in the J.W. Addison building

Nutritional counseling will also be available for all participants on select Saturdays during the bootcamp program.

The bootcamp schedule will include Zumba each Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 6 p.m to 6:30 p.m. and Strength Training from 6:45 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.

All classes will he held at the Frank Gambrell Student Affairs Multi-Complex.

CCC’s Fit for Life initiative is funded by the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation. Since 2015, the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation has provided almost $500,000 in funding to Coahoma Community College for the Fit for Life initiative that extends from the campus into the surrounding communities and schools.
