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!
