No workout session is repeated during your four weeks of training. We keep your interest and your curiosity levels high in anticipation of the workouts. When you arrive at the training site, you should stretch until formation time. Our warm-ups usually consist of calisthenics and total body flexibility exercises to prepare your system for the upcoming session. We also allow time for a cool-down session after each workout. You will enjoy the combination of personal attention and social interaction that the Boot Camp Fitness partner format allows.
We will instruct you how to perform a modified, lower-impact version of the exercise as an alternative. This will strengthen the targeted muscle group so that you will eventually be able to perform the original exercise.
We convince, not confront! We only yell motivating words, positive affirmations, and uplifting quotes. We aim to keep you focused on the task at hand. Abuse, harassment - we don't go there, even if you want us to. If you want verbal abuse, join the Army! For positive reinforcement, come and enjoy the camaraderie of a non-competitive group workout at Boot Camp Fitness.
Yes, you may bring a buddy to one Saturday class per session. Your buddy will need to sign a waiver upon arriving to boot camp. Be sure to come prepared with the necessary items.
You'll need a mat, hand towel, watch with a timer, two pairs of dumbbells (5lbs and 8lbs are a good place to start), water bottle (Camelback hydration system recommended), running shoes, loose, comfortable clothing, sunscreen in the summer and gloves, a hat, and layered clothing in the winter.
Yes, you can attend any boot camp location or time for no additional charge once you have registered. Be sure to notify the trainer which boot camp you are registered at.
During inclement weather - too hot, too cold, raining, etc. - we will conduct activities indoors at our training locations unless otherwise notified.
Boot Camp Fitness is designed for all fitness levels. You don't have to be fit to start. Our assessments are based upon the Army's physical fitness standards, meaning that you compete against set norms for you age and gender. During week one, we will establish a baseline with the 2 minute pushup, 2 minute sit up, and 1 mile run (2 miles are required for awards). We will perform body fat analysis and assist you in finding your resting and target heart rates, blood pressure, and girth measurement. We will also provide information to help you achieve your nutritional goals.
Boot Camp Fitness offers the Mother of All Boot Camp (MOAB) special. Once you've registered as a Boot Camp participant, you can attend as many classes a week that your schedule allows (three times minimum). You may also participate at any of the other locations we offer during your four weeks of training.
