    Build Your Own Boot Camp

    Fitness boot camps seem to be gaining more and more popularity each year. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) conducted a study when boot camps first began to gain popularity back in 2008. The findings indicated that people did in fact burn more calories during a boot camp than other workouts such as cardio-kick boxing, indoor cycling, aerobic dance, and pre-programmed circuit training.

    However, in a more general observation of the boot camp revolution ACE states:

    “Maybe the boot camp trend is still going strong because it’s not really trendy at all. The workout is simple and [in some cases] not tied to a single piece of equipment. Or maybe it’s the motivating team-orientated atmosphere that’s created as fellow exercisers ‘survive’ the workouts together”

    ACE’s chief science officer Dr. Bryant says, “People are looking for different experiences. With boot camps, you’re giving them something outside the traditional club environment.”

    These observations made nearly 8 years ago seem right on target as the popularity of this style of workout continues to grow exponentially each year. Now you hear terms like “Tabata Training” and “HIIT Training” which are all synonymous with a boot camp style workout.

    Are you looking to start your own Boot Camp? If so, make sure your Park and Rec departments are up-to-date on the latest trends and have all of the professional grade equipment that you need to create a top-notch outdoor training program for those in your community.

    • Choose a time slot that will appeal to the largest number of people. As you might have noticed, during the week early mornings and after work hours are the busiest times for workouts. A lunchtime boot camp can be successful if kept to 25-30 minutes. Saturday mornings are great because most people are off on the weekends and won’t have the “I got stuck at work” excuse.
    • Consider alternatives names to “Boot Camp” as that might be intimidating for some. Changing a few words might appeal to more people, i.e. “Transformation Training Camp” or a 2-week “Mini Camp”. Brainstorm on some buzz words that will describe your Boot Camp and help it to stand out among all the others.
    • Decide if you want your boot camp to be weekly or only offered for a specific time frame. Both have advantages.
      • A boot camp held 2-3 days/week for an unspecified time period will build momentum. You might start with a loyal crowd of 3-6 people, but once visibility increases and your campers start to see results, your camp attendance can grow up to 2-3 times its original size. Also, choosing a set time slot will establish consistency; people like that because it is easier for them to remember when it is offered.
      • However, there are also some advantages to setting a beginning and end date. For example, a “6-week Summer Shape-Up Camp” is catchy, it goes on long enough for people to see measurable results, and it can yield some great before and after pictures if the participants are willing to share. Plus it creates exclusivity to the group members. You can always begin another 6 week boot camp as soon as a group finishes and start advance sign ups.
    • Post signage to advertise about two weeks in advance to gain interest. Consider setting up a social media page to invite people to your group. Then, with permission, post photos and/or videos of your group workout. Create a hashtag exclusive to your group, i.e. an early morning group with the hashtag #sunrisesurprise.
    • Consider a sign-up sheet either at the facility or via social media. It’s always good to have an idea of how many people you should expect when planning a group session.
    • Offer the first hour as a complementary assessment and workout. Most people want to try it before they buy it. Set up the first 30 minutes as data collection (measurements, release forms, etc.) and the remainder of the time a quick entry level workout. This will also help you gage the overall fitness level of the group and help you plan future programming.
    • Be quick on your feet! Despite our best efforts, sometimes we forget to RSVP. If you are planning to set up a circuit style workout, be prepared to add in a few more exercises for some unexpected campers.
    • Always be prepared to show progressions and regressions of each exercise. When training a group you should be prepared to cater to all fitness levels.

    Boot camps or training camps are a great way to build a social and accountability network for your member base. Many people quit their fitness routine because they either didn't see results or didn't know how to get them on their own. Putting people in groups of this type is the most cost effective way to provide them with the education and accountability they need to get back on track.

    1.Jason on 3/26/2015 There are $3-$4 a piece. You get what you pay for. They work fine under normal use which means stretching them to about 2x their resting length. For stronger athletes, they need to be doubled up. I usually purchase about 15-20 of these each fall and they last through 2 preseason soccer programs, and 2 Ultimate preseason programs where we use them for both warm up and cool down. After that they begin to snap, but at the price I wouldn't expect much longevity.
    2.Cynthia on 1/8/2015 I have used these loops in my GroupX classes for years - at least 1-2x per week - they are very durable. I inspect them everytime we use them. I have had these loops last for over a year before I have to replace them.
    3.Danee on 7/28/2014 I purchased a red and a blue for over $10 each at my PT office. They both snapped within 6 months. Am I'm a 118lb female, so it's not like I'm a brute! I called the company and they would no replace. BAD-BAD BUSINESS! I Do not recommend. If the company would have replace them, I would have left a better rating for the company but not the product itself.
    4.Jonathan on 5/7/2014 would not even rate it as a 1 terrible and seem to be getting worse as the outsourcing continues. so much so that we have taken our business to alternate vendors. Power systems used to be my one stop shop. Step your game up
    5.Darren on 6/12/2013 The bands are great for what we use them for, but they don't last long at all. We go through 10 per month. I'd expect a little better quality.
    6.anne on 12/7/2012 A trainer introduced me to these bands - I started with the green one, worked my way through the red and now I'm on the blue. I do leg extensions for my quads, which has become super important since I've had knee surgery. The bands have lasted for many months. Someone else said in her studio, they don't last so it may be that they can't stand up to wear and tear of many people using them. But I work use them maybe three times a week and I've been very happy with them.
    7.Lisa on 3/12/2011 I love the versa cuff products. But when we have bought the versa loops, they last a very short time and we find ourselves reordering way too soon for my personal training studio. We don't even use them on the floor, just around the wrist and ankles to prevent wear. Love you guys but not the versa loops.
    8.Jose on 12/28/2010 I use them on a daily basis for stretching and various routines. Everyone should own a pair of different tensions. They are great!
