A fitness boot camp is a type of group physical training program conducted by gyms, personal trainers, and former military personnel. These programs are designed to build strength and fitness through a variety of intense group intervals over a 1-hour period of time.
Boot Camp weight loss programs provide dynamic, efficient workouts. They use a wide range of exercise types that develop both muscular and cardiovascular fitness, and promote safe and effective weight loss. In addition, individuals that participate in a Boot Camp weight loss program find that the atmosphere and variety of exercise types provide motivation and combat boredom at the same time. This approach allows individuals to become more mentally, physically and energetically involved in the workouts and increases their probability of continuing with their workouts over the long run. The combination of a team atmosphere, intense full-body cardiovascular and strength workouts and fitness education make Boot Camp weight loss programs very effective at reducing excess body weight, improving cardiovascular endurance, increasing lean muscle mass and improving overall coordination and balance. In addition, Boot Camp weight loss programs are ideal for individuals that only have an hour, 3 to 4 days per week, to perform an exercise routine.
