You won’t find a Red Deer boot camp is anything like an all day spa, you’ll work hard and sometimes wonder why you went. However, at the end of the session, you’ll love how you feel and after a short time, love the changes the camp made in your overall health, appearance and energy level. Personal trainers run boot camps and they use exercises that require little or no equipment. Most of these exercises improve functional fitness, fitness that helps you do daily tasks easier and with less potential for injury.
You’ll get all the benefits of having a personal trainer.
The first thing a trainer does at a boot camp is assess each person’s level of fitness, including finding weak muscle groups. He or she listens to each person’s goals or has them write out the goals and learns of any special needs of the people in the group. Only then does the trainer design programs specifically for each member of the group. The exercises will work each person to the maximum, but still be within his or her capability.
Everyone is different.
When you attend a boot camp, you find a group of people with a wide range of fitness levels. While some camps may be devoted to beginners or other classification, that doesn’t mean the trainer treats these people all the same. Each one has varying abilities within that range. Not everyone has the same goals either. One person might want to improve his or her endurance, while another wants to lose weight. Trainers consider those differences and while everyone may be doing the same exercise, the trainer modifies the exercise to fit each person’s needs. One person may be doing ten repetitions of bended knee pushups, while another does 30 repetitions of regular ones.
Some boot camps include nutritional information.
It doesn’t matter what your goal, healthier living or weight loss, what you eat plays a huge role. Some personal trainers include nutrition information as part of the camp. The trainer doesn’t give you a diet, but shows you ways to make foods healthier or substitute one food or ingredient for another to lower calories or increase nutrition.
You’ll get all the benefits of having a personal trainer, but at a fraction of the cost. Everyone shares the cost of the trainer’s time at a boot camp, so it’s far less than private instruction per capita.
You’ll see lots of comradery at a boot camp. Since everyone has goals that are difficult to achieve, each person has empathy for those having a problem and often help cheer them on to success.
You’ll learn exercises you can do anywhere. Most of the exercises at a boot camp require little or no equipment, so you can do them at home after the camp ends.
You’ll learn how to do the exercises correctly. Personal trainers not only show you how to do the exercise, they watch to insure you do it right. Doing an exercise incorrectly minimizes results and increases the potential for injury.
