Last time we discussed the importance of having a well educated and certified Fitness Boot Camp instructor, as well as a professional facility.
Today we are going to venture even further into selecting the best Fitness Boot Camp in Broomfield, Westminster, Thornton, Erie, or Denver Colorado.
Below are some other tips that you should for when choosing boot camp program.
Do They Offer Various Exercise Equipment?
Now this is probably just as important as the actual Boot Camp Instructor’s credentials.
What type of equipment do they use? Is it enough to make the exercises different during each session? Is the exercise equipment well maintained and free of damage where you could get injured?
A good, organized, and challenging boot camp will offer several types of training equipment for various exercises, allowing you to learn new training methods and making every session different. Let’s face it. Variety is the spice of life. Fitness is no different.
At the Broomfield and Westminster Boot Camp, participants will train with the following tools.
- body weight exercises
- resistant bands
- medicine balls
- just to name a few of their exercise equipment.
Why so many options? Muscle confusion. If you confuse the muscles by using so many different tools, but doing the same “type” of exercise, than you begin to build lean muscle faster because the muscles are not having the opportunity to adapt to an exercise.
Typically, your body will reach a point where it plateaus and no longer develops because it has adapted.
Is Cardio Training Apart of Their Sessions?
First of all, let’s clear something up.
Cardio does NOT help you lose weight.
Cardio simply builds a healthier heart by getting oxygen into the biggest muscles in your body, the legs (quads, hamstrings, and cavs). Oxygen is needed in order to live. If your muscles do not get enough oxygen through exercise (the heart pumps it for you) than you can almost guarantee yourself a shorter and unhealthy life.
In order to get oxygen into your legs, you need to jog / run. Walking is good too, but remember, we are in a fitness boot camp, not walking the dog!
Our Fitness Boot Camps builds in a 15-20 minute window for cardio. However, we do cardio VERY different. We implement Interval Training, which is considered the best type of training for professional athletes in practically ANY sport.
Interval Training is basically short, bursts of exercises, for a short period of time, with a high recovery period.
Why is Interval Training so important?
After the training session, you will continue to burn calories 24-36 hours AFTER your workout. You don’t get that during a normal 2 mile run. Unless you incorporate interval training.
Now, we also offer other types of cardio training, such as kickboxing, but that is only because we are also a professional martial arts school. Other boot camps don’t offer that.
Do They Offer A Nutrition Guide?
Most trainers do not understand this, unless they were a certified fitness and personal trainer.
Nutrition is the key to weight loss. Exercise simply helps keep the weight off during and after you reach your fitness goals.
If a Fitness Boot Camp offers the nutrition portion of their training at an additional cost, move on. They should understand that nutrition is actually MORE important to their client at the beginning than anything else.
The Broomfield and Westminster Boot Camp requires their boot campers to participate in the nutrition portion of the boot camp sessions because they are trying to teach healthy eating habits, and how watching what you put into your temple (your body) will directly effect the results you will plan on achieving.
And, they do not charge extra for it. It’s part of your membership.
If a trainer does not put you on a nutrition plan, not only do they not care about your goals, but they are not very sure how to help you meet your fitness and weight loss goals.
Our unique and powerful nutrition plan is extremely simple to follow, yet it delivers the results we all desire. All it takes some dedication, perseverance, determination, and a trainer that wants to help you succeed.
Now that you know what you should look for in a Fitness Boot Camp, call The Dojo of Karate and Fitness. They are a professional martial arts and fitness school that specializes in helping people achieve their goals. They offer the best fitness program in Broomfield, Westminster, and Thornton Colorado called Fighting Fit2 Boot Camp Fitness Program.
