I love designing boot camp theme ideas.
My latest themed workout is a story based workout called Prison Break. The first time I heard about story based workouts I was intrigued.
One of the PTI’s on camp was taking the lunch time circuit training, which was open to anybody.
(FYI – I was in the Marines at the time)
I didn’t attend this particular circuit training class, but one of the lads did. He told me that the PTI had used a story themed warm up drill which he had never seen before.
He was raving about how good it was, and how it was best class he’s been to so far. Btw – The PTI’s who take the lunch time classes are on their actual PTI’s course.
They’re always being watched and assessed. So as you can imagine, when it’s their turn to shine, they use the best bootcamp ideas & team games etc they can get their hands on.
Only a select few actually make the grade.
On this occasion, the PTI guided the group through a story based warm up drill. The PTI led whilst the group followed his actions.
My mate at the time ‘Ginge’ said the story based warm up went something like this…
“We’re being chased across the beach, run”
(Sprint on the spot)
“Quick duck behind the high wall and get down”
“jump up and peak over the wall”
(continous squat jumps)
“They’re closing in, get in the sea now and swim”
(arms swimming forwards, fast breast stroke)
“Oh no a shark, fend it off”
(punching to the ground fast)
“Quick out of the water, we’ll head for the trees”
And so on for about 7-8 minutes until the story has been told. It was probably a lot more exciting than that but you get the picture. It’s a great idea that I’ve added to my collection of boot camp theme ideas.
So, there you go.
The beauty is with story based workouts, you’re only limited by your imagination.

You should consider using story based drills and themed workouts because they’re fun, effective, and a great talking point for your bootcamp clients away from the sessions.
Plus, I doubt very much that your competitors will be using them. Helping you to stand out even more.
