Where does Boot camp come from?
Bootcamp was originally a type of group military training conducted under the direction of an instructor.
The goal of this type of training is a rapid physical fitness while strengthening the cohesion of the group.
A session takes place on a footing basis punctuated by simple running exercises (accelerations, sprints) and muscle building (pumps, squats, abs).
Exercises (individual or group) are unique or linked and carried out in the form of challenges.
When the Bootcamp moved to civilian life, it immediately met a great success, first in the USA, then in Europe. Today, Bootcamps can be found throughout the UAE
Why is it so succesful?
Bootcamp training is a radical change from classic gym training.
A session lasts between 1:30 and 2:30hrs, sometimes more, and takes place outdoors (city, park, beach, etc.), in a group and is supervised by one or more personal trainers.
This last one(s) gives instructions in a very directive way, pushing the participants to give their maximum and encouraging them to exceed their limits but always in a safe and user-friendly environment.
The group effect has this ability to push the participants to give more than during a training alone in his corner.
All exercises are performed without equipment. The only tool you need is your own body, your partners, and the environment you’re in. We train outside regardless of the weather, so we must make sure to adapt our outfit accordingly.
In short, the bootcamp is: intensity, security, emulation, challenges and results! In addition, this type of training simultaneously develops cardio-respiratory and muscular qualities.
Many gyms offer Bootcamp now in UAE.
