Exercise boot camps are typically programs that get you to leave the home and familiar environment and go to a designated unfamiliar place to avoid distractions when the programs are going on. They are sometimes also referred as exercise retreats.
These programs are designed to drill into the participants the benefits of the exercise program by providing both learning/study workshop sessions on the practice of and theory behind the regimen being followed as well as practical exercise sessions.
This 2-pronged approach is supposed to provide a better understanding of the benefits of the regimen in a way that is makes it easier to internalize and retain.
There are many kinds of indoor and outdoor exercise boot camp and retreats available today. There are also early morning drill kinds as well as evening based programs.
In addition, various camps and retreats use different specific exercise program tracks. Some are better known than others and address different health and fitness issues.
Some have an online presence making it easy to find information about them. You may need to scout both online and in newspapers for information if you want an in depth search.
To give us a head start, here is a little of the information available online:
Some camps are in-residence such as the Utah Fitness Retreat that includes endurance activities such as hiking in its program (probably a good idea for vacation time). It is also a single location retreat ideal for those who want exclusiveness and the feel of a small organization.
For some such as the Adventure Boot Camps you go to camp daily from home. This is ideal for those who want something on an ongoing basis as it allows you to make the camp experience part of your daily routine.
It is also ideal for those who are more concerned about dealing with a large organization. In fact the Adventure Boot Camps is an example of the large boot camp group. It has locations in several countries. Information about its locations in various countries is available online. It provides both indoor and outdoor activities depending on the weather- indoors in winter and outdoors at other times of the year
These adventure camps run 4-week programs several times a year to keep their participants plugged in. New Jersey State for example has quite a few of such boot camps including the New Jersey Adventure boot camp located in the Basking Ridge/Somerset area. This camp meets from 5.30 to 6.30 am for early morning drills so one can go back home to change and have breakfast before going to work.
It also has a Kettlebell program gym for people who may want some gym workout as well. The gym is open all day.
The websites of the various Adventure Boot Camps provide information about the experts that run them. They also have medical consultants as part of their teams. It would be smart to call up first and talk to them to get a good feel of things. Many have more than one price option.
Some websites such as Total Core Fitness Boot Camp website provide free at home boot camp exercises information on their website in addition to on site deals. You may want to go with the free information if money is an issue.
Otherwise you may want to wake up early everyday and run round your house or your block.
So now there is no excuse for inaction, there are so many options. It may be a good idea to checkout these boot camps and retreats and give the early morning workout a try.
If you do not have such programs where you live. It may be a good business venture for consideration. People all over the world are looking for ways to keep fit that fit their busy lifestyles.
