Myths About Boot Camp Fitness: It’s Not What You Think

Myths About Boot Camp Fitness: It’s Not What You Think

What myth have you heard? We have been talking with you about boot camps over the last few weeks. I know that there are a lot of reasons why people avoid joining this type of fitness class. Trust me! Our trainers have heard it all. So, this is to help you to know the truth behind a few of the myths we hear most often.

Myth #1:  It’s only for the super fit – Ok. Let’s start by saying that it’s true that a boot camp might have the reputation of being physically demanding. If you’re not exactly in peak physical condition, you might feel like you want to steer clear of this type of workout. The best boot camps are designed to get you fit. It’s not an elite club for super athletic types. Our trainers design our boot camp workouts to adjust for every level of fitness.

Myth # 2: It’s like joining the military – In another post, I talked about the background of boot camp fitness which did spring from military exercises and training camps. But I want to dispel this myth by letting you know that you don’t need to wear Army boots and be shouted at by a frightening Drill Sergeant to get you in shape. Boot Camps are meant to motivate and push you to put in that extra work that you may not otherwise do on your own. They’re not about breaking you down and building you up, or punishing you along the way!

Myth #3: Is not going to meet my goals – There is a general myth that boot camps are for overall fitness rather than targeting individual goals or special fitness areas. This simply isn’t true. Boot camps can address your personal fitness goals and add a customized element to your workouts too.

Myth #4: It’s must be expensive – Say it with me to break the spell of this final myth, “Intensive does not necessarily mean expensive!” Maxx Fit guest often comment on how affordable we are. We want you to come back so why would we try to break your budget?  

Before you start a class with us or anyone, ask these questions:

  • What are you getting for the session fee?
  • How many people participate?
  • Where will we be training and how?
  • What are the qualifications of the trainer?

Now, look at what you spend the equivalent on in other areas of your life. What’s the price on being fit and healthy? Effective exercise is worth a lot compared with spending workout time inefficiently. Take a positive attitude and get ready for your first boot camp class. Call us today!
