Boot Camps: The Perfect Summer Workout

You work, you sweat and, best of all, you get results! Boot camp workouts are a great way to get into shape while having fun. Here are some of the benefits you’ll enjoy by enrolling in boot camp this summer.

Boot camp workouts are efficient because they target the entire body and address all areas of fitness including cardiovascular and muscular endurance, fat loss and weight loss, full body strength, flexibility, balance, and agility in each session.

Each session will take you through high-intensity strength and cardio exercises designed to challenge your body’s strength and endurance while burning calories like crazy. Programs typically welcome all fitness levels; even those with specific limitations can participate. Qualified instructors will be able to provide exercise modifications to accommodate all levels of ability and will happily answer all fitness-related questions.

Benefits of Boot Camp

Motivation. When you exercise in a group setting there is built-in motivation. You receive encouragement from your instructor and your peers, giving you that extra boost of confidence.

Change of pace. Boot camp workouts eliminate the boredom and monotony of your typical gym workout. You are given a variety of exercises, preventing workouts from becoming stale and helping you avoid reaching a fitness plateau.

Educational. Instructors will provide you with helpful tips as you train. Additionally, the exercises you learn at boot camp can be done almost anywhere with minimal equipment, so you will learn new exercises to incorporate into your regular routine.

Interval training. Boot camp is a great way to perform interval training on a regular basis. Incorporating interval training in your fitness regime allows the muscles to develop a higher tolerance to fatigue and strengthens the heart muscle. These adaptations result in improved performance, especially in cardiovascular fitness. Finally, interval training allows you to increase your training intensity and prevents over-training or burnout injuries, which are often associated with repetitive endurance exercise.
