Bodyweight BootCamp  Workout Challenges

Boot camp is a great way for clients to get fit and have fun. Providing them with challenging ways to quantify their progress is an amazing retention tool for any bootcamp owner. Every client wants to see that they’re making progress by losing weight or inches as well as becoming more fit.

These challenge boot camp workouts will give you the tools to evaluate your bootcamper’s fitness levels. The purpose of each test is to encourage your clients to improve; thereby improving the fitness parameter tested that month.

The program is based around a twelve-month testing schedule. Each test will beperformed and recorded at the beginning of the month.

You can choose to repeat the challenge once each week and then re-test and record results at the end of themonth to compare results. It’s a simple formula for you and your clients to assess fitness progress. Each test lasts between 9-15 minutes.

The workouts are created with a boot camp setting in mind.
It’s assumed that as a boot camp owner,you will provide the necessary warm up prior to having your clients do the test.

With each test, you’ll be instructed on what each client needs to record. This will simplify things and make it easier to collect the proper data for each test. Check out the Boot Camp Workout.

Provide the necessary modifications to individuals as needed so that the challenge isn’t too far out of their reach. The goal is to have your campers challenged but NOT defeated.

Remember that exercise form and rep quality trumps quantity.

Each challenge should be met with a positive attitude and as an opportunity for clients topush their limits; it should be ‘fun’, not viewed as a punishment.

Set your clients up for success and encourage them to improve their OWN scores rather than competing with others.

For an added challenge, try  the Extreme Boot Camp workout Challenges.
