Boot Camp. For many, these two little words get the nerves going and the palms sweating, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Sure, boot camp is something those entering the military have to endure that is historically difficult to get through, even for the toughest of men and women. Boot Camp for our purposes is a different story, although it does get its name for a reason. Modeled after the old practice of “fat camps” for children and taking a queue from our friends in the military, Boot Camp fitness programs aim to help people lose weight quickly, and keep it off. The Boot Camp classes you will find at both of our 24-hour luxury gyms not only provide an intense cardio workout, but they will also include some education how to achieve good overall health and fitness.
Our Boot Camp weight loss program includes a variety of exercise types, which is one of the main reasons why these classes are so successful. You won’t get bored with the same ol’ same ol’, and you will engage in exercises that are based on muscle endurance, improving cardiovascular health, muscle toning, and more. So, how do you know if Boot Camp is right for you? Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of this type of group class in order to give you a better idea.
Burn Calories, Quickly
One of the number one benefits of Boot Camp classes is that they help you burn calories quickly. Due to the intense nature of these classes, it can seem like quite the challenge at first. However, once the sweat starts to pour down your face, you realize that it’s all for the greater good. The temperature in most Boot Camp classes is kept higher than normal, setting the stage for a sweat fest. The combination of the heavy heat, constant repetitions, and motivating instructor will all be worth it when you watch your waist size get smaller and smaller.
Great Cardio Workout
Fitness Nation’s Boot Camp classes combine strength training with hand weights and other forms of exercises giving you that full body workout you were looking for. For many that dread doing cardio, this is a win-win situation. Mixing it up between cardio and strength training is absolutely imperative when it comes to losing weight, and keeping it off, which is why Boot Camp classes are so successful.
Excellent Confidence Builder
Even after your first class you will leave the gym feeling great about yourself, as your clothes are drenched in sweat, your heart is pounding, and your muscles are calling out to you. When you realize what you’ve just gone through and accomplished, you will not only be on the road to a happier, healthier you, but you will have the confidence to keep at it.
Boot Camp classes are a wonderful option for those looking for an intense workout that doesn’t involve the same exercises over and over again. Be sure and check out our Boot Camp schedule at both our Arlington and Bedford 24-hour luxury gyms.
