Are you looking for something to do in Florida? Why, not get in shape while having fun at the same time? I’m not talking about joining a traditional big box gym, but instead a fitness bootcamp! Bootcamps are a physical program conducted by personal trainers, designed to build endurance, strength, and educate you on nutrition. Bootcamps are usually ran out of smaller facilities, compared to the traditional chain gyms such as 24 Hour Fitness. Some bootcamps are even presented at local parks, which is great for people who prefer to workout outside.
Group exercise classes are smaller compared to group classes at traditional gyms.This is a benefit because this allows the fitness instructor to spend more one on one time with people who are struggling and need guidance. Also, working out in a group environment encourages camaraderie. People in group glasses tend to help each other out and give encouragement to their fellow workout mates. If you’re generally a shy person, working in a group environment is also a great way to bond and socialize with other people.
Group glasses are set up so that each day has a different workout routine. One day your workout may focus on the upper body and the next day you could be doing yoga. Every fitness expert will tell you that the more you mix up your workout routine, the better! If you do the same routine everyday, your muscles will become used to the exercises, therefore making the workout less impactful. Bootcamps have a little bit of every type of workout, which means you’ll get to learn and implement a variety of exercises into your personal routines.
Whether you’re a beginner or advanced, young or old, all skill levels and ages are encouraged to join. The person in front of you could be a newbie while the person to the left of you could be a pro. That’s the beauty of group workouts, because even though people are at different skill levels, everyone works as a team and pushes each other to excel. There will always be group support, whether it’s from the personal trainers or your fellow class participants.
Besides learning new exercises to add to your repertoire, you’ll also notice an improvement with your posture. Our parents used to always tell us to sit up straight, and as adults we sometimes forget. Bad posture will eventually lead to back problems later on in life, and that’s why it’s important to be aware of how you’re sitting and standing. Bootcamp classes will focus on keeping your posture upright, or else you will not be able to do any of the exercises correctly. You’ll also learn how to improve your stability once you’ve taken enough classes.
If you’re into fitness or thought about getting into fitness, I strongly recommend joining a local bootcamp. Most bootcamps will let you attend the first session free, or you can go on sites such as group on.com and purchase a four week pass at a significant discount. Bootcamps are a great way to meet new people while getting a great workout in!
