Using fun team workouts is one of the easiest ways to keep your clients coming back for more.
It’s worth remembering that most of your clients joined your bootcamp because they wanted to be part of a team. If that wasn’t true, they would train on their own.
So, it makes sense to include fun team workouts & activities that get people working together, getting to know one other and having a laugh.
So, top tip. Use less individual workouts, and include more team based stuff.
Over the years I have designed hundreds of themed bootcamp workouts of all types.
And with it being the 4th of May (may the fourth be with you) I thought I’d share one of my favourite team workouts with you.
Fun Team Workouts For Group Trainers
Method: Label 21 markers each with it’s own star wars character and number between 1-3.
2 Darth Vader
1 Luke Skywalker
3 Han Solo
1 Princess Leia
2 Obi-Wan Kenobi
2 Darth Maul
3 Clone Trooper
2 Jar Binks
2 Captain Rex
3 Plo Koon
1 Commander Codi
2 The Emperor
3 Jabba the hut
2 Admiral Ackbar
Once you have finished, scatter the markers out as shown in the diagram.
Step 1: Split the group in to 3 small teams.
Step 2: The team captain nominates a player to run out and collect a character.
Step 3: Each player completes the following.
- 20 Push ups
- 20 Squat jumps
- 20 Sit ups
Beginners 10 of each.
Step 4: There is a number between 1-3 attached to the character. Players complete that many shuttle sprints.
Teams repeat round 1 until there are no more characters left.
Step 5: Each team should now be left with a set number of characters that they have collected. The team with the most characters wins the challenge.
