Official IGETITIN Boot Camps coming in 2022.
Sick of boring cardio workouts? Get back to basics with a fitness boot camp class. These group sessions, which focus on military-style exercises and functional movements like push-ups, squats, sprints, and sit-ups, provide a killer workout and a chance to sweat outside the gym. We are putting together a workout so that you will know what to expect for every civilian left-right-left-ing to a class.
Basic Training — The Need-to-Know
Based on programs that I have personally trained while serving 10 years in the US Army to whip new military recruits into shape, fitness boot camp classes aren’t for the faint of heart. These high-intensity workouts deliver results in a total-body approach, combining sprint intervals, bodyweight exercises, and high-intensity moves like kicking and punching. The key: limiting rest time in between each move to get the heart rate up and burning calories fast.
A typical class lasts one hour and can burn around 600 calories, building strength and aerobic capacity all at the same time. Plus, with a dedicated instructor, Carlfred Giles and group of friends all sweating together, it’s easy to stay motivated and go for that last crunch.
Fitness boot camps can be great for exercisers of all levels, especially those looking to get in tip-top shape, break past a fitness plateau, or drop a few excess pounds. Just be prepared to work! Looking for boot camps near you? Head to a local gym or community center to see if they offer any classes with a certified, experienced instructor, or can recommend something nearby.
