One of the hardest parts of being a bootcamp instructor is coming up with fun group fitness class ideas. We all want our sessions to be amazing, and for our clients to love them, but for many thats not a reality.
Let's face it, who has the time to keep coming up with new bootcamp ideas, let alone spend countless hours searching the internet for inspiration? After all we've got businesses to run.
Thats why it's so easy to fall into the trap of repeating the same type of workouts which can eventually lead to boredom. And thats not good for business if you're trying to build a popular bootcamp.

Each week I take the most important parts of my daily emails and condense them for your convenience. In this weeks news I'll be sharing 2 fun group fitness class ideas.
My 15k slam ball is by far my most used piece of fitness equipment, I absolutely love it.
The one I have is called a dead ball which doesn't bounce when you slam it.
Here's a really tough slam ball workout that will have you sweating buckets, and wanting to kill me. But do it anyway! You'll feel amazing.
Workout 1: Cardio Crush
Complete Burpees for 1 minute then slams for 1 minute x 10 rounds as fast as you can without stopping (20 minutes). Honestly, your body won't know whats hit it.
Workout 2: Complete Your Age In __________
Have players complete their age in Burpees. I'm 40, so that would be 40 burpees. Obviously it sucks if you're older, but it's good fun, especially when you see the look on some peoples faces. Ha ha.
