If you’re looking for a total body workout that will burn calories, tone muscles, and improve your overall fitness, Boot Camp fitness classes are for you. In this article, we take you through what Boot Camp fitness is, what to expect from classes, and the benefits of Boot Camp fitness.
What is Boot Camp Fitness?
Boot camp fitness classes are group physical training classes, based on army boot camp training. Boot Camp classes help to drastically improve fitness levels, pushing people a little bit further than they would usually push themselves, which simultaneously improves mental health and confidence levels.
What to Expect from Boot Camp Classes
We understand that the idea of Boot Camp may be intimidating to some, especially if your fitness isn’t that of your average army recruit. To help resolve some of your worries and questions, here’s what you can expect from 3R Physiotherapy's Boot Camp fitness classes.
A Welcoming & Supportive Community
We know that “Boot Camp” can sound scary, or intimidating, but don’t worry, you’ll be surrounded by like-minded, supportive classmates and trainers that want to see you succeed.
Inclusive & Achievable Challenges
You don’t have to be super-fit to join our Boot Camp classes. After all, the aim of our classes is to improve your fitness and make you feel great. Whatever your current level of fitness is, our sessions are designed to push you and take you out of your comfort zone, yet still be achievable.
Proper Form & Technique
At the beginning of each Boot Camp class, we make sure to warm up with dynamic stretches and some jogging or walking, to ensure that the body is ready to workout, and to help minimise the risk of injury.
We also put a lot of focus on proper form and technique during our classes. Think of it as quality over quantity. Not only does this further minimise the risk of injury, but you won’t get the most out of Boot Camp if you’re not performing the exercises correctly.
A Mix of Light Weights & Bodyweight Exercises
A Boot Camp class is a HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workout that involves bursts of intense activity, followed by short rests or lighter activity. Classes will
incorporate bodyweight exercises, cardio, light weights, and drills.
If it’s Raining, We’re Still Training
Boot Camp fitness goes ahead whatever the weather. The aim of our classes is to push yourself, and what better way to challenge yourself than to push through the cold, wet, and windy climate of Great Britain.
Classes end with a cool down and more stretches to help the body to relax after intense activity. You’ll leave our Boot Camp class feeling strong, confident, and energised.
Benefits of Boot Camp Classes
Boot Camp classes offer a number of benefits to your physical and mental health. Here are just a few:
Torch calories & lose weight
Improved fitness & aerobic ability
A fun & challenging workout
Make friends in a supportive environment
What Our Clients Say about Boot Camp Classes
Don’t just take our word for it - Our clients can’t get enough of our Boot Camp classes.
"I’ve definitely lost weight but more importantly started to tone up and I feel better physically than I have for a long time. Also the high I feel after smashing a session gives me such a boost mentally and keeps me motivated!" AL.
"My goal was to find a healthier way to de-stress and the boot camps have certainly done that. It’s the best feeling after an 11 hour shift at work to let off some steam and frustration. I have also recently realised my body shape has changed and I have started to tone up - something I’ve always wanted but never felt able to achieve after 2 children. So it’s been a great asset to my mental and physical health!" LH
"I was a little apprehensive about joining a boot camp that would purely be done virtually. How wrong was I? Paul is both engaging and motivating, and provides alternatives to exercises should things be tricky. He offers his wealth of experience to answer any questions you may have. I felt so much better after the first session and am already looking forward to next week. The tunes in the background aren't too bad either." DC.
