personal training BOOTCAMPS
GROUP FITNESS AND personal trainING BOOTCAMPS
Personal training bootcamps are led by a personal trainer and are usually offered over a certain interval of time. They are known to be highly intensive, hence the name bootcamp, and may have a certain focus to them.
Personal training bootcamps are also referred to as fitness bootcamps. Sessions typically last anywhere from a half hour to an hour and are conducted multiple times throughout the week.
How Do Personal Training Bootcamps from a Trainer Differ from Bootcamps at a gym?
At Invictus Fitness, our personal training bootcamps involve groups of 10-20 people. Our personal trainer will come to your selected location to work with your group, which will be assembled by you.
Although gyms also offer fitness bootcamps, they organize them in a different manner. Gyms will enlist their members to sign up for a training bootcamp, whereas personal trainers like Invictus Fitness work with groups organized by the client.
Working with a personal trainer for your bootcamp allows your group to have more direct input as to the participants and to the focus of the bootcamp itself.
What types of groups are personal training bootcamps appropriate for?
Though personal training bootcamps can work for many types of groups, they’re especially useful for teams, who want to engage in team building exercises and train together.
How Long Do Personal Training Bootcamps Last?
Bootcamps typically run about 4 weeks, though this can vary by personal trainer and the needs of the group.
What types of exercises are involved in personal training bootcamps?
Exercises involved in a personal training bootcamp vary, depending on the focus of the bootcamp, but they usually include a combination of cardiovascular exercises and strength training.
Cardiovascular exercises are a type of aerobic activity that gets your heart rate up and makes you sweat. This can include exercises like running, jogging, cycling, swimming, or even walking at a brisk pace.
Strength training (also referred to as resistance training) is an anaerobic activity that typically involves working with your body weight, free weights or resistance bands to build muscle strength. Strength training also helps improve bone density and overall health and endurance.
Both strength training and cardiovascular training are important parts of any fitness program. Most personal training bootcamps offered by personal trainers like Invictus Fitness will involve both of these types of exercise.
As you’re searching for programs, you should be aware that many gym-led bootcamps involve high-intensity interval training (HIIT), which is a type of cardiovascular exercise that alternates between periods of high and low intensity. HIIT can be an effective way to improve your cardiovascular fitness and can be adapted to any fitness level, but it can also be limited in its scope.

Some other benefits of personal training bootcamps include having a lower teacher to student ratio, allowing for more individualized attention. Personal training bootcamps are also usually less expensive than one on one personal training.
