Bratislava Bootcamp! What’s That?

There’s been much talk around town of some fitness program called Bootcamp. What on earth is it?

Bootcamp is unlike any program which you’ll find in a regular gym, meant for everyone from absolute beginners to seasoned athletes.

The concept actually arises from the US military whereby recruits are put through rigorous mental and physical training, and those successful, progress forth.

Some years ago, the fitness industry caught on to this style of training, and it’s popularity spread throughout the US, and now globally.

What’s the big deal?  Bootcamp is a results based. Attendees are able to get personal training results for a fraction of the cost. The goal is to push oneself beyond limits, using little or no equipment, aside from one’s own body weight. We underestimate ourselves and are stronger, faster, and more able than we know.

It’s all about “Functional Training, replicating every day human movements, like squatting, lunging, pressing, pulling, bending, etc. This is done via Resistance Work, High Intensity Interval Training, Plyometric and Cardiovascular Drills. Each session is different to keep the body and mind challenged and to keep attendees “on their toes.”

All one really needs for Bootcamp is to commit to oneself to be better, to challenge with all out effort, and to be “present.” A highly inspiring and motivating program, despite the intensity, you might find yourself coming back for more!

    Seems like someone believes there´s no advertisement in the “real” news. Well, look better ;)

      I think the point I am trying to make Bo, is that this item is hardly a Public Service shout. …… The Bootcamp joining Taster is priced at 10 euro, whilst the Full Metal Jacket ( ie Plan 4) is an eye watering 66 euro, when a simple jog around Aupak park cost you nothing . I guess you get the group hug for this price, which leaves you ` feeling inspired and motivated ` …?

    Sadly my comment ( over the girl in the blondie lass in the black tee shirt having huge pair of lungs ) seems to have been relegated to junk status by the moderator ….

    Whatever happened to the Scottie sense of humor ???

    Bemused to find this the first story here.
    Maybe there should be an expat* column to the right so stuff like this doesn;’t get tangled up with the ‘real’ news.

    Have to say the word ‘expat’ makes me feel queasy and conjures up unwelcome images.

    Hm, seems like your mental and bowel movements come out with the same product George, so sticking to your cup would be definitely preferable to all :-)

    ah, now as a gentleman I was very much trying not to notice but since you brought them up…….

    Yea, that`s an advert , not information . Please excuse me, but I think I will drink my three cups of coffee to produce my own …. `every day human movement .`

  7. George, you may never leave your coffee and PC, but others are interested in this. It is not news, but information for expats in BA.

    Oh my God, now we are into Fox News land, Product Placement and Adverts pretending to be real News .

    The bottom of the barrel is being reached .

      Dear George,

      I’m sorry you think this is “the bottom of the barrel.”
      However you wish to see this article, at the end of the day, what happens in Bootcamp is the positive contribution towards the human spirit and I see this time and time again. People come to get fit and leave feeling inspired and motivated in a much more than a physical sense.
      People’s lives are altered via regular physical activity. Why wouldn’t that count as news..? Maybe it would be better “news” if someone had a heart attack and dropped dead during a Bootcamp session in Bratislava. Imagine that headline, hey?

      Kind Regards

        I waited a while, as thought I would let some else comment first . For once I agree with david, I am also bemused as I though this a news website , not Hello, OK or Horse and Hound mags . If I want to read Heath Life , then I would go and buy it .

        The fact is, if some wacko wants to believe that a Bootcamp is the positive contribution towards the human spirit then we are really are in trouble. Selling the product within the `franchise` is just a money making scheme …as all American get rich schemes are . I know of more so called `Fit` people that have dropped dead at age 45 /55, than I have slobs …sobering thought eh ?…This obsession with body size, fitness etc is the biggest con on the planet ….For all those it helps , it kills and disappoints the same number IMHO . Yes, it would be “news” if someone had a heart attack and dropped dead during a Bootcamp session in Bratislava. Plane crashes, Earthquakes, Political scandal and Sock horror and whoops are news . Thus news is not a few people going for a run and a energy drink picnic…so do we need a passport to get into your world ?
