How To Create Fun Bootcamp
Games Using A Joke Book
I get my best bootcamp ideas when I'm out running. Here's what popped in to my head the other day. You can use it as a finisher drill for your next session.
Here's How It Works. Tell your clients a series of jokes. All they have to do is keep a perfectly straight face. During each joke, if at least 1 player smiles, laughs, or reacts in any way, the group completes a set exercise for 60 seconds.
Play 10 rounds in total which means you'll need 10 jokes. If you find yourself a good joke book you can recycle this fun bootcamp game over and over again.
You can find the full workout (which contains a long list of carefully selected jokes) over in the Workout Design Club.
How To Spice Up Your Bootcamp Workout Routines Using The AMSSAP Protocol
Here's a workout acronym you may not be familiar with.
- AMSSAP - As Many Super Sets As Possible
"A superset is a form of strength training in which you move quickly from one exercise to a separate exercise without taking a break for rest in between the two exercises".
I use this training method to design things like..
- Team game
- Finisher drills
- Partner challenge
- Fitness test
- Circuit (or point based circuit)
- Team event (point based)
And you can too.
How would you adapt the AMSSAP concept? Hit reply and let me know. If you're a member of the Workout Design Club please login and put my latest creation to the test. AMASSP Discover.
AMSAAP Discovery is a super fun fitness test with the option of switching it up in to an exciting point based team challenge. It's a winner either way. You can use this template to create lot's of different bootcamp workout routines.
How to Design Stunning Bootcamp Workout Routines Using Brain Games
There's nothing worse than writer block. That moment when you sit down to design a workout and nothing happens. A huge inspiration to me are online puzzles.
- Dot to dot
- Kids crosswords
- Picture match (24 cards face down)
- Word searches
- Math puzzles
- Word games
Even sudoku can work really well.
Do a Google search for kids puzzle ideas then have a go at adapting them to create your own unique designs. When you take the time to create your own ideas, you'll instantly stand out from all the other trainers in your area.
Or you can take a massive shortcut and use my collection unique designs. If you're a member of the Workout Design Club please login and put my latest creation to the test. Its called Math Geek Extreme HIIT.
Probably one of the best teams games I have designed in 2019. Teams battle to solve a series of linear math puzzles whilst contending with a series of tough exercise challenges.
Why You Should Design Your Own Bootcamp Workout Routines, Or Copy Mine
Over the years I have seen lot’s of different bootcamps pack up and shut for business. In most cases these are fantastic trainers who couldn't figure out where they went wrong.
Back in the early days, way before I learned what an avatar was, my bootcamp was packed to the brim mainly though word of mouth. And I knew why.
Whilst all the other camps where doing the same sort of stuff, and blending in. I took the time to create my own unique bootcamp ideas.
This enabled me to bringing something fresh and exciting to my my local community.
The truth is, most trainers are either to busy to create their own bootcamp ideas, or to tight to invest in something like the Workout Design Club.
Here's what lifetime member Mark Sleep emailed in to say about the WDC.
"Mate, I am loving the WDC, its making my life waaaaay easier"
The WDC lets you build perfect group workout every time without wasting much time or stressing out. You can short cut thousands of hours in planning and let me do the heavy thinking for you.
Would You Take On The Ultimate
Can you imagine completing burpees for 24 hours? I read a story today about a guy who attempted to complete 9,000 chest to ground burpees in 1 day
He was raising money for a local hospital that saved the life of his sons. Although he missed the mark, he raised the £17,000 needed to buy the hospital a new fetal endoscopic machine. What a guy.
I couldn't do 9,000 burpees in a week, never mind 24 hours. How about you? If you've ever thought about raising money for charity, here's how one trainer does it.
Basically he runs a free Sunday morning charity bootcamp open to his local community. Although it's free, people are encourage to bring their loose change for the charity bucket, but it's not compulsory.
Here's the thing!
A lot of the Sunday morning crew go on to purchase his paid membership because they want to attend more session. It a win win.
Ok that's it for this weeks Unique Bootcamp Workouts update.
