About 14 years ago, the American Council on Exercise recognized the growth of instructor-led workouts based on the practices used to whip new U.S. Army recruits into shape. Implementing this workout style in gyms and fitness centers, boot camp has even become popular in many rehabilitation centers in NYC. This motivating, team-oriented atmosphere is now available at physical therapy center FitWAR.
No matter your fitness level, size, or age, the results are worthwhile with Play Fitness Performance Boot Camp. Kick your workout or rehabilitation program into gear with this full-body workout. Boot Camp at the FitWAR fitness center is held once a week indoors. The routine incorporates the use of body weight, medicine balls, resistance bands, kettle bells, hurdles, battling ropes, and agility ladders. Together you will find yourself in a challenging program, yielding the best results.
Boot camp workouts are a fairly intense mix of strength training and aerobics. In any class, you will do calisthenics like pull-ups, lunges, and crunches, along with drills and sprints. This is an interval-training workout, featuring bursts of intense activity followed by cool-down periods.
Why should you try boot camp? While you may have the impression that a boot camp workout means a large, intimidating man yelling in your face, this is not really the case. The use of proper instruction ensures that your movement patterns and body awareness are correct, thereby preventing injury. Working alongside others for a common goal is also a great way to keep you motivated throughout the program. It is easy to become tired or bored while exercising, but with the right motivation and instruction you will see results that will help you push harder.
Boot camp isn't necessarily for everyone, but if it's a high-energy workout with variety and camaraderie you're looking for, take advantage of the classes at fitness and rehabilitation center in NYC, FitWAR.
