Recently the American Council on Exercise commissioned a study to see the effects of participating in boot camp style workouts. Is it really the workout to end all workouts or just another pumped up fitness class?

A Recent Study - Are Boot Camps Effective?
Awesome workout or just another pumped up fitness class?

Recently the American Council on Exercise commissioned a study to see the effects of participating in boot camp style workouts. Is it really the workout to end all workouts or just another pumped up fitness class?

The study was conducted by a team of exercise scientists from the University of Wisconsin Exercise and Health Program, led by John Porcari, Ph. D.

Drum roll please. Here are the results:
     *  600 calories were burned per hour on average
     *  heart rates averaged 77% of maximum, with intervals up to 91%

What does this really mean?
Here is what Dr. Porcari said:
     *  "Boot Camp is much more of a total-body workout than just going out for a
          run or bicycle ride."
     *  "It's a good combination of aerobic exercise and muscle conditioning."
     *  "Obviously going to help with weight loss."
     *  "If people are looking for something that's fun and variable that will increase their adherence
         to an exercise program, and most importantly, burn a lot of calories, boot camp would be a
         really great option."

After seven years of running Boot Camps we totally agree.
Having fun, staying motivated, and being consistent is the key to achieving fitness improvements.

Get Paid to Lose Weight - These Campers Did & You Can To!

Comments from
our Campers

Our Campers are amazing people and we love them.  It is their spirit, energy and dedication that makes Yoga & Boot Camp the success that it is.

Here are a few comments from our recent Boot Campers & PowerFit Yogis.

"This is the only program I have enrolled in that made a difference in my life, my weight, and my body."

Pat, Boot Camp

“I can't find enough superlatives to describe this class. The amount of knowledge, care and energy that Robyn puts into every yoga class is insurmountable. Her corrections are always spot-on and expressed so clearly that they serve as a cue for the next times we find ourselves in those poses.”
Debbie, PowerFit Yoga

“I broke the bank at the weigh in. Earned myself $30 big ones!! I love feeling Fit and Empowered!!
Maria, Boot Camp

"PowerFit Yoga is a great workout for the fitness buff because it pulls you into your body, giving you an opportunity to hone in on particular muscles or muscle groups to relearn movement that is healthier & less injury-prone. In addition, it's a challenging workout in its own right - working flexibility, strength and balance."
Barbera, PowerFit Yoga

"Boot Camp is a great thing to do as a couple and is fun to do with regular campers. We get to know each other and our coach and so it is a great little boot camp family."
Angie, Boot Camp

"I can't fully express how grateful I am to have found this class. It is the only exercise class I've ever attended consistently and happily. Annette is such a great teacher, she has the ability to motivate and push you further without yelling or you even realizing it until you've gotten stronger."

I love the variety of boot camp! I've now attend 4 boot camp sessions and the 4th was just as different and varied as the first one. It much more fun than going to the gym again and again and doing the same old thing! And the instructor personalizes it when you need it. Lauren is always looking for a low impact option for my bad knee.

Janice B.

I feel great after the last 5 weeks of Boot Camp and Powerfit Yoga. The combination of the two classes allowed me to lose 10 lbs in 5 weeks. I feel great, look better and am significantly stronger than when I started. I have dropped an entire pants size and feel great in clothes I have not worn in years.
   I am amazed at how much progress I have made and continually excited to go to Boot Camp and Powerfit Yoga!
