Boot Camp is a physical training program designed to build strength and fitness through a variety of intense group intervals.
Training typically begins with a dynamic warmup, followed by a wide variety of interval training, including lifting weights/objects, pushups/situps, plyometrics, and various types of intense explosive routines. Sessions usually finish with a cooldown period. Many other exercises using weights and/or body weight are used to lose body fat, increase cardiovascular efficiency, increase strength, and help people get into a routine of regular exercise.
Boot camps provide social support for those taking part. This provides a different environment for those exercisers who get bored in a gym and find it hard to develop a habit of exercise.Participants make friends and socialize as they exercise. An advantage of a boot camp is that the large group dynamic will often help motivate the participants. There are many other benefits of a fitness boot camp,including mental health. Regular aerobic exercise can help to reduce high blood pressure, hypertension and combat stress.
