Where and when we meet

We meet every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 6pm near downtown Houston along Buffalo Bayou. The closest street address is 170 Sabine St, Houston, TX 77007.

We meet at the bottom of the stairs at the northeast corner (below Sabine Street Lofts) and that is our “Base”.  If it’s raining – we hold class under the Sabine Bridge – so look for us there. We post all cancellations (which happen very rarely) on our Facebook page.

Park along the bridge if you can find a spot (obey parking signs….they do tow!) or you can park in the Fonde Recreation Center parking or at the very east side of the Sabine Street Lofts in the City Lot (you can then walk down the walkway along the bayou to get to base).

What we do

Bombshell Bootcamp combines intense, fun and challenging workouts for all-levels and is led by certified personal trainers and fitness experts Cari Shoemate and Carrie Barnhart. Lose weight and tone up while you build strength and endurance with a wide variety of cardio and strength training workouts that you’re guaranteed to love.

You’ll often exercise with the same people, many whom may become your friends and encourage you to work harder throughout the class! We also meet for fun outside of bootcamp at happy hours, parties, etc!

Bombshell Bootcamp was founded in 2011 and is Houston’s most popular women-only bootcamp with over 600 members! The camp is comprised of all levels (beginner to athletes) and all ages and is suitable for everyone.
