Fitness Boot Camps have been the latest craze in the fitness industry over the past couple of years, and has been steamrolling with even more momentum recently.
People are always talking about the latest exercises, workouts, and how many boot camp sessions they've completed, as though they have done multiple tours through a war zone.
So why is everyone jumping on this new fitness fad bandwagon?
Well, probably one of the most obvious reasons is wanting to be accepted. Most people join a new, trendy, activity that others are doing because they don't want to be left behind.
In the 70s and 80s it was aerobic classes. The 90s brought Tae Bo. And now, it's muscle confusion and boot camp training.
But, probably one of the main reasons is you here and see the results from participants joining these fitness boot camps.
Let's face it, why would you join a fitness program if you were not hearing and seeing the results of inches lost, fat burned, and energy gained...
Now that we know you plan on joining a fitness boot camp, your next question should be, "which boot camp should I join?"
This is like trying to find a sedan with all your options, when there are 5 other companies that provide the same service.
There are plenty of exercise and weight lose type boot camps on the market that claims to give you results. Some are great, while others simply fall short of the hype.
So, here's what to look for when you are selecting a fitness boot camp in your area.
Are They A Certified Boot Camp Instructor?
Is the Boot Camp Instructor a certified group instructor? Are they a Certified Personal Trainer with an accredited organization that is well respected? Do they actually fit the mold of a boot camp instructor, or is this simply their "extra cash" job? All of this matters because if you find a boot camp instructor that is not certified, doesn't take fitness seriously to the point they do not lead by example, and are not dedicated to helping you meet your fitness goals, what's the point of training at their facility.

Is Their Training Facility Professional?
Some boot camps are taught outdoors, while others are strictly indoors. A boot camp should have the option of being indoors and outdoors, depending on the whether. In Broomfield, Colorado, the whether can change in 10 minutes... so having both options is ideal. Plus, training outdoors is just a nice change of scenery.
You also want to make sure the facility is safe, clean, and welcoming. Do they offer mirrors to help you check on your posture and technique, which is crucial when you are a novice.
