Exercising on your own at home or running on the same treadmill all by yourself can hardly be motivating or enjoyable. Join instead a
Boot camps are an economical and effective way of shedding excess flab, toning your overall body and improving your strength and endurance. They provide an extremely inspiring atmosphere where you can work in groups or pairs. Cool and innovative workout sessions make boot camps the number one choice for fitness buffs.
Drag a Bag
Dragging a heavy bag can be a chore in most situations. But at your boot camp Bondi, dragging a heavy bag can actually be fun and very effective in increasing your physical strength. For this, you will have to fill a big duffel bag with whatever you can lay your hands on; dumbbells, rocks, weights or any other heavy object.
Although the bag can be dragged on the ground; the fun increases when you have to heave it up an inclined plane. Cones are also placed throughout the inclined plane to specify the route. Participants have to drag the bag all the way up as fast as possible.
Push the Car
Power band training are great boot camp exercises
This is another everyday irksome chore that has been altered into an enjoyable boot camp Bondi workout. Participants are divided into groups and have to push a heavy vehicle for a predetermined distance within a specific time. To inject the fun element, the workout is performed as a competition between groups or pairs.
Vertical bar jumps
This is like going back to school days when hanging onto and swinging from vertical bars on the playground was so much fun! This is exactly the same but part of your boot camp Bondi workout.
Vertical bars that are found in most parks are suitable for this fun exercise. Stand directly under the bar and grasp it with your hands. Bend the knees and give your body a sudden jerk to lift yourself up. Using the momentum of the jerk, lift yourself as high as you can for an effective workout.
Pushing your Partner
This superbly fun workout is done in pairs and works best if the ground is wet and muddy! Both you and your partner have to stand on one leg and try to push each other down. You should touch only your partner’s outstretched hands and no other area of the body.
You lose around if you lose your balance, have to hop away or put the other foot down. Similarly, your partner loses if he/she loses balance or withdraws his/her hands. Swap your legs each time you lose. The workout aims to improve the balance and flexibility of your body.
To add a twist to this boot camp Bondi ‘game’, you can use the raised leg, instead of your hand, to knock off your partner. The inside of the raised foot should be curved around the raised foot of your partner to knock him/her down.
Another group personal training game that imbibes healthy competition among participants is grabbing
