High Intensity Group Training
You can almost hear echoes of the drill sergeant in ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’ when you embark on Bootcamp Training. And justifiably so since its origins are in the military where strength and general fitness are a basic part of survival.
This intense group activity was picked-up by personal trainers and converted into a fun and social (but still tough) workout that appealed to a broad user group. The exercises are similar to Cross Training in that there is room for all fitness levels. Focus is of course on the exercise, but also getting people to work together and interact during the workout. This is a great motivational factor compelling people to stay active, involved and interested.
It is one of the first examples of outdoor training becoming really popular and in its fresh-aired environment, the park is the ideal ‘arena’ to workout and reach that fitness goal.
