Boot Camp


The boot camp workout is a very popular exercise regimen and has been so for some time now. These workouts include a number of calisthenics exercises like running, jumping, pushups, and squats. As the name implies, this type of workout is modeled on the types of workouts you would find at a military boot camp during basic training. There are a number of reasons why these workouts are so popular. In this page, we’ll cover some basic information regarding boot camp workouts, why they work, who they’re for, what to watch out for, and where you can sign up.


Why Do Bootcamp Classes?


Boot camp workouts offer a number of benefits, but why this type of class specifically? Boot camp workouts are a fairly comprehensive exercise plan. In these classes, you’ll be able to work out your core as well as your upper and lower body. CrossFit workouts are somewhat similar. The key difference is you will need less gear and equipment to accomplish your tasks. And while machines, gear, weights, are great for exercise, they don’t quite prepare your body for the real world rigors you’ll experience. Ascending a staircase or bringing bags from your car to your house are more day-to-day and boot camp workouts prepare your body for those experiences. You will likely burn around 10 calories for every minute you’re training. That’s on par with other exercises like swimming and bike riding.


Who Should Do Bootcamp Workouts?


Boot camp workout regimens are a great exercise for anyone. There’s not a specific age range for those looking to participate. The same goes for weight. You may feel as though you’re not within the target age and/or weight range for these workouts but that isn’t true. Part of this is due to the style of exercise utilized by the instructors. In most classes, you will experience a type of exercise that is a bit intense while utilizing short rest periods. This type of workout is known as high-intensity interview training or HIIT. If you’re looking to make the biggest improvements to your overall health over a short period, boot camp workouts are for you. As with any workout class, be sure to speak to your instructor beforehand. This way, they will be able to accommodate your level of experience and ensure you receive the most helpful training.


What to Watch Out For


As with any exercise plan, there are a number of variables to watch out for. The main reason for this that there is no one size fits all boot camp workout. As stated, there are many variables including indoor workouts, outdoor workouts, cardio emphasized workouts, aerobic emphasized workouts, building strength workouts, weight loss workouts, etc. Some workouts will use machines and some will take place in public places with everyday objects. One of the constants will, of course, be that you’re not alone. In some classes, you might be in a room with up to 50 others. Additionally, if you’re experiencing issues with joint pains and/or haven’t built up your strength in a while, you will really need to keep an ear out for how your body is feeling. It’s possible you may even need to build up your strength before signing up.
