If you want to workout and still have fun, a Lincoln Park boot camp can be the perfect experience. You can attend a boot camp on your own and meet many like-minded fellow enthusiasts or sign up with a group of friends or other family members and make it an fun get-together that has real benefits for your health. Sometimes work friends sign up together to exercise before or after work. In fact, some work health plans or the company may even pay for the camp since it makes you healthier, lowering insurance premiums and also more productive.
You’ll get a personalized program at the boot camp. Before the trainer does anything else, he or she assesses your level of fitness, learns your goals and finds out if you have any special needs. Then he or she creates your program. Boot camps offer almost all the benefits of having a personal trainer, but since everyone shares the cost of the trainer’s time, it’s far less per capita.
Not everyone will be at the same fitness level, but that doesn’t preclude competition. Each person will be working at his or her maximum potential to achieve goals that are within his or her reach, but still very challenging. Seeing who achieves goal fastest is a driving force no matter what level of fitness. It will be just as hard for a super fit person to achieve his or her goals as it will be for the novice who may be out of shape. Even though working out is tough, there’s plenty of laughter and joking at a boot camp too.
Personal trainers constantly change the program they offer. You’ll learn new exercises continuously. You’ll also learn how to do each one correctly and even have the trainer watch to insure you do them right. Since boot camps use little or no equipment, you’ll have plenty of exercises you can do anywhere, whether it’s at home, in the gym or in the local park.
You’ll make plenty of new friends at a boot camp. People tend to bond at boot camps because everyone is struggling, making achieving their goals a common challenge.
You’ll feel invigorated and happy when you leave. Working out burns off the hormones created by stress and replaces them with ones that make you feel good.
You’ll see faster results from a boot camp. The exercise is guided to give you the maximum results and you’ll work harder than you would on your own. Seeing results makes boot camp even more fun.
You’ll look and feel healthier. Exercise gives you a glow, but it also can help prevent serious conditions, such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure and diabetes, to name a few. If you already have these conditions, it can help you control them.
