Have you been diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis?
Bone Boot Camp is an online program developed to help.
An online workout program that promotes bone growth,
based on the latest research
Bone Boot Camp is easy-to-use exercise program that not only promotes bone density & builds muscle strength, but bolsters your health & confidence too.
Bone Boot Camp helps women who have been diagnosed with low bone density.
If, like me, you do not feel comfortable in a gym setting, you can use this video program in the comfort of your own home.
I created this program from the most recent research, which reveals that bone building is site specific—meaning it affects certain areas of the body, such as your hips, or lumbar spine. It also tells us that external load (like weights, walking vests, and resistance bands) is crucial to creating change.
I have personally experienced an osteoporosis and osteopenia diagnosis, and I know how embarrassing and disheartening it can feel. It can make you feel weak and overwhelmed, wondering which exercises, if any, are right for you. This overwhelm can lead to paralysis, and avoiding exercise altogether.
The great news is: I’ve done the research for you. I’ve compiled exercises based on the latest research, and used them over the years on myself and my satisfied clients. I even reversed my own osteoporosis diagnosis into osteopenia (in my hip; click the link to see my DEXA scores) by committing to the exercise program I’ll share with you in Bone Boot Camp!
In this program you’ll learn the exercises without weights, and slowly progress to using 2 pound weights, 5 pound weights, or more. You can even begin by lifting household items like soup cans! I created this program with your health and safety in mind, which means we’ll start with proper alignment and work our way up to higher weights and more repetitions.
"Thanks Sarah for all your incredible knowledge. Your program has been amazing and has taught me a new way of caring for my bones. Much thanks for being such an inspiration for women on a subject no one really talks about. Keep up the good work."

"Just purchased Bone Boot Camp. So far I’ve gone through the Foundations and the Warm Up Series. Sarah has mastered the art of conveying nuances and intricacies with a simplicity of language that clarifies and illuminates the basic movements we thought we understood … but in fact didn’t. She has taken her vast experience and staggeringly comprehensive understanding of anatomy, extracts the essential information, and delivers it in the most user-friendly way I’ve ever experienced.
Anyone with experience with the multitudes of fitness/wellness/physical therapist instructors out there will know within the first few minutes that they are in the hands of a master. And not just for those of us considering bone health but anyone who wants to finally understand the basics of movement which are the foundation of any fitness program. I can’t wait to go through the rest of the series! I am reminded of a comment I once heard Paul Newman make when asked if he had been faithful to his wife Joanne Woodward; 'Why go out for hamburger when you have steak at home?' Thank you Sarah for sharing your immense gifts and putting this gem out there for all!"

A clip from Bone Boot Camp:
I'm lifting a fairly heavy weight in this video (15 lbs). In the program, you'll start with foundational alignment and progress to resistance bands, and then small weights.
Hi, I'm Sarah Purcell, and I'm a longtime yoga and pilates teacher. I've created Bone Boot Camp for Osteoporosis specifically. I successfully reversed my osteoporosis with weight bearing activity, and Bone Boot Camp was created to promote bone growth for you too.
I work with clients in-person in Florida, and online via Zoom, and I'm also a co-founder of Pause for Movement, an online workout program for peri and post menopausal women that focuses on the core and pelvic floor.
My goal is to spread the word that aging does not have to mean core and pelvic floor dysfunction and aches and pains that keep coming back. You can grow stronger and healthier as you age!
I'd love to hear from you if you have any questions about the programs or working with me. Contact me here.
