Boot camp is a type of outdoor group physical training programme, which is designed to build strength and fitness through a variety of intense group intervals over a 1-hour period of time. It is called “boot camp” because it trains groups of people, may be outdoors, and may or may not be similar to military basic training.
The idea is that everyone involved works at their own pace as they team up and work towards one goal, either in pairs, small teams of three or four, or even two teams head on.
This provides a different environment for those exercisers who get bored in a gym and so find it hard to develop a habit of exercise.
Boot camp incorporates calisthenics like the ones you did in the fifth grade. Classes include jumping jacks, push-ups, running in place, football-style drills kettle bell workout and lots of yelling. It strengthens your muscles and bones in addition to getting an excellent cardio workout. Equipments used are tires, hammers, battle ropes, kettle bell, slam balls etc.
