What is Boot Camp?
First.....it is hard work, but it is also FUN! The first time you come get there about 15 minutes early. You will need to sign a waiver before your first class. If you are under 18 a parent must sign the waiver. Class always starts with a light warm-up and a few stretches. During boot camp we do a variety of different exercises. Every time you come to class it will be different. We also introduce new exercises on a regular basis. Remember....VARIETY is the spice of life! Ever get caught up in the same old exercise routine? Well this class will offer you something different! Some of the things we do include suspension bands, kettlebells, hill intervals, core exercises, cardio, Tabatas, H.I.I.T. training, calesthenics and so much more. At the end of class we have a cool-down time. Boot camp offers a head to toe workout with personal attenion yet the social interaction that the group class format allows. Occasionally, you will notice someone dancing and / or singing along with the music during class. The members like to have a good time while working out!
Who should attend class?
All fitness levels are welcome. The format of class allows everyone to work at their own level and pace. Every exercise is timed anywhere from 1 minute intervals to 15 second intervals. A well conditioned athlete may get 30 repetitions in during a minute while a beginner may only get 6 repetitions. That is the beauty of the timed exercises. Each person does what they can do during that interval.
What if I can't perform a certain exercise?
All exercises can be modified and / or a substitute exercise can be used. That will help strengthen that group of muscles until they are strong enough to perform the original exercise.
What do I need to bring to class?
BRING (please don't wear your shoes to class, and shoes should be free of dirt) a good pair of running shoes or cross trainers. It is a good idea to bring a bottle of water as well.
