WASHINGTON - Call him 'Sarge.' Patrick Avon was never a drill sergeant in the Navy, but he's making up for it now. And he is making people pay him for it. Avon is sarge and president of The Sergeant's Program, a Washington-area chain of boot camp-style workout programs. 

As he sees it, Avon and all his sub-sarges exist to make sure people do what they may otherwise lack the willpower to do: work out. Clients 'need somebody to kick their you-know-what into shape,' Avon said...

Would you go to one of these boot camps that vow to get participants into shape?

It wouldn't hurt to try it out...
18 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/28/03 - 2:34:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd prefer it if it were an actual sergeant not some guy making you do too many push ups

...No way hosay<--however you might spell that..

^Jose.

Yeah, that's about the only way my butt is getting into shape. I need somebody to physically yell at me to exercise.

There's no way that I would pay someone to order me around like an animal.

I have allready been to Marine Corps boot camp and if it wasn't for my disabilties, I could probably go through it. It can't be worse than that concidering it is run by a swabie.

Not unless there was a bar there, which I very much doubt.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 3/30/04 - 1:17:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
um, i was in the navy, didn't work then, wouldn't work now.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 3/30/04 - 1:18:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
No way, chale! Unless I was joining the Air Force, then of course I would be.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/16/04 - 5:46:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
i would probably cry the entire way through but i'd appreciate it after
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/16/04 - 6:09:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
It seems like a good idea, but when I think about it, I'd probably tell the f*cker off as soon as he started screaming sh*t at me.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 4/20/04 - 11:24:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I saw Eliza Dushku talking about it in an interview... it seems to have worked for her! I need to be pushed sometimes.

I think I would like to try it out, but would need some opt out clause if it got to much, then again it might be worth it just to drool over the sergeant :P I think that would help with the pain barrier.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/04 - 8:35:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
no I would not I do not like pain
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/13/05 - 11:27:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
Never
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/13/05 - 11:28:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not going to have anyone yelling at me making me feel like a piece of crap, no thank you.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/17/08 - 10:03:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell on earth is what it sounds like...

What Is a Fitness Boot Camp?
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/17/08 - 10:37:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
haha, if the civilian one seems like Hell on earth, do yourself a favor and never join the military
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/17/08 - 11:22:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I don't have time or money for that, and I'm piss poor at taking orders.

Especially when I'm perfectly capable of keeping myself in shape without paying some imbecile to shout at me all day long.

This place sounds scary...
