Fitness Boot Camp Style workouts never seem to lose their appeal for a good reason: Military inspired workouts obliterate calories. Built on three basic training principles – cardio, strength and agility – boot camp workouts require little more than your own body weight. Properly designed these workouts are more intense and more fun than traditional fitness classes and gym workouts. Taking your boot camp regimen outside, and breathing fresh air without the confinement of four walls brings your energy level to great heights. Get ready to burn serious calories and transform your entire body without any equipment! Take charge: Design your own boot camp workout by choosing 6 exercises from the list below for your first round. Choose the next six for a second round or the following days workout. A local school is a great place to kick butt with your boot camp workout!
The weather forecast is looking great for the next several days – perfect conditions for an outdoor workout!
