    Which Logo Should I Use?

    Ok, so now that my PT businessis up and functional I've turned my attention towards getting a Boot camp up and running as well. I am in the provces of making a site and have had some logos created. Please help me choose which one I should go with.

    I should mention that this is the first of two boot camps I will be running. The first one is called, "Fitness Boot Camp." It's geared towards the 30-50 year old crowd. I will use med balls, bodyweight circuits, incorperate Cross Fit type workouts etc into the sessions.

    The second one which I have not yet started one is called, "Iron Worx Boot Camp" and is for police officers, martial artists, fire fighters athletes, basically anyone who is in top shape but wants to be in even better shape. I will be using kegs, tires, sledge hammers, sleds, and other stuff as well.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I like bottom 2. Top one I am not a huge fan of.

    I also saw a cool idea (may not be new, but new to me) called Bride Bootcamp, too. Gets bride in shape for her big day.

    #1: I like this one!

    #2: I really don't like the "fitness" font. I do like the tag idea. Maybe too much glimmer and shine, though.

    #3: Not a big fan of the picture, but the fonts are good.

    Btw, I like #2. I think though it needs something added to it though. Maybe a dumbbell in the background?? I was thinking of using the font of the word "Bootcamp" in design #3 in the #2.

    i like 2 the best

    it needs to be focused a bit more imo. i think there is too much background.

    obviously you need some of the chain to drive home the dog tag idea, but if you could cut out some if the background it would be better.

    I like number 2 the best also but it seems a bit feminine. Try to dull the metal and make the metal string longer to look like a dogtag necklace instead of a bracelet. Also I would change the font in the fitness.

    I like either #1 or #2, not so sure about #3. I'm leaning more towards #2. Good luck with your business!

    I like #2. The only thing I thought at first sight was the chain looked like pearls more than a chain. But, my glasses are at work.

    I like #1. I don't like #2 at all. Looks too glossy

    #2, but maybe without the shining disc underneath it (i.e. no background). Just the tag. Also, maybe a bit more colour, or something. A darker border around the outside of the tag would make it look more defined.

    1 & 3 are ok, and would look good on a shirt, with a few color changes. On a web site the'll look fine. 2 is a little prissy which may be what your going for.

    I like nr.3

    It is the most "visible" with the comfortable and soft background.

    And not everybody will understand at once, is it a normal bootcamp, a gym?

    The sit ups guy sorta explains it.

    I like the 3rd one

    First one looks too weird, second one is too glossy.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Number 2 gets my vote. It leaps out the most for me. I'd suggest adding more detail or contrast to the chain though.

    Put the font of "fitness" from 3 to the rest of 1 and you're gold.

    I think you have to have army font no matter what design you go with...

    #1 is good, but I don't like the guy w. cables.

    #2 is just too polished to be a dogtag.

    I'd choose #3 I guess, but I'm not a big fan of the figure. I like the "bootcamp" font, but it needs to be army font with the spraypaint effect IMHO.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    My vote is for the dogtag.
