Summer Shape-up Part 2: Boot Camp
If simply following a celebrity trainer’s advice to sculpt an amazing body just won’t work for you, it may be a good idea to look into something a bit more disciplined and hardcore. I personally feel the best after an extremely grueling workout where I literally get my ass kicked by the exercises and know that I pushed myself to my limit.
Well, if you want to make a change, but are afraid of falling off the bandwagon before you get a chance to reclaim your hot bod before fall semester, try joining a workout boot camp. These camps are becoming increasingly popular and more and more clubs across the country are beginning to offer them.
According to a recent Chicago Tribune article, “Boot camp fitness programs have become so popular because they incorporate strength and cardio training into an hour workout, saving you time by getting your heart rate up while working your muscles.”
Sounds like a sweet deal to me. Also, it’s like having a personal trainer for a group rate. Money Saver!
Still not sure if this is for you?
Some boot camps also zap the monotony of being on a treadmill for an extended amount of time because they get you outside and moving. For any students in NYC: check out this option or girls in San Francisco: go here.
Basically just do a google search for a boot camp in your area because gyms like Equinox, Crunch, and Lifetime Fitness are offering boot camp style classes as well if you are more of an inside person.
Whether you like it outside or indoors, a boot camp can keep you on track for the summer. It’s easy to give up on a workout program while doing it yourself, but when you are enrolled in a set program and have others counting on you, it’s a lot harder to cop out early.
