What are some other exercise programs?
Bootcamps for weight loss can include exercise programs like Tough Mudder which is a popular choice in the UK when it comes to high-intensity fitness. It is a physical endurance event in which you attempt 10 to 12-mile-long obstacle courses, which often play on common fears, such as fire, water, electricity and heights. It’s certainly not for the faint-hearted and often requires significant preparation in the months beforehand, to ensure you are at an optimum level of fitness.
It’s worth noting that these types of bootcamps are more suitable for those people who are already physically fit and wouldn’t suit the needs of someone who is just at the beginning of their weight loss journey.
However, there are bootcamps available that specifically tailor to the needs of people who are either overweight or obese and are hoping to achieve substantial weight loss. These styles of weight loss programmes can sometimes be residential and can take place over a number of weeks. This can also include access to specialist dietitians, nutritionists and personal trainers along with counselling support in order to take an integrated and more of a lifestyle approach to reaching a healthier weight and changing your overall lifestyle in the long-term.
There are also bootcamps available to children and young people. So whatever your personal fitness goals might be, there is sure to be a bootcamp suitable for you.
Physical bootcamps locations
Bootcamps are a very popular fitness class and there will be many to choose from in your local area which often take place outdoors usually in local parks and other green spaces.
Look through local magazines, community groups on social media or enquire at your gym about sessions that are available in your area. Due to the popularity of bootcamp training, we would always recommend that you book the sessions you want to attend in advance to secure your place in the group.
