12 Unique Group Fitness Class Ideas
In this tough 5-minute finisher drill, you’ll learn a secret workout technique that forces your clients to work much harder than they usually would. Overtime, this secret technique (which you can apply to any workout) will massively speed up your clients fitness results.
A centurion was a professional officer of the Roman army after the Marian reforms of 107 BC. They were known for their strength, dexterity and incredible bravery during battle. If players are to make it through this tough 40-minute circuit training workout, they will have to embody the qualities of the centurion.
A 30-minute fitness test with a cheeky twist. Focusing on muscle strength endurance, and cardiovascular conditioning. This (results driven) circuit training workout is a complete blast and extremely satisfying to finish.
This is another one of my favourite group fitness class ideas.
In this gamified HIT workout, there are 3 ranks (Captain, Major and Lieutenant Colonel) and a cheeky forfeit. Hard work and a lot of luck will determine each players fate. You’ll love this fun bootcamp drill.
In this 35-minute double whack descending ladder drill, players are presented with a unique HIT challenge designed to burn fat and build muscle. The more points a player scores, the more calories burnt, meaning they’ll happily give it 100% without moaning.
In this fun 30-minute partner challenge, players decide each other’s fate (by the shake of a hand) as they both embark on a unique exercise journey. This is one of my favourite drills.
You’d have to be crazy to take on this 45-minute HIT challenge. You have 9 bootcamp exercises, 9 time zones and 9 unique intervals designed to give you the most intense all body workout your clients have ever faced. If they like a challenge, they will love this.
Fixed routines are good, but sometimes it’s great to give the power back to your clients and let them choose their own workout. This 30 minute HIIT workout is design to create a sense of involvement and belonging in your tribe. This is another secret technique for building a loyal client base that never wants to leave.

Unique Bootcamp Workouts Weekly Round Up
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 killer group fitness class ideas, plus free access to the Train The Trainer Challenge which kicks off Jan 7th.
This weeks round up.
My 15k slam ball is by far my most used piece of fitness equipment (Whats yours? Let me know in the comments). I absolutely love it.
The one I have is called a dead ball which doesn't bounce when you slam it.
I wasn't going to work out over Christmas but this workout drill popped in to my head and I had to try it. I regretted it a little bit come round 7, because I was dying.
Title: Slam Ball 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.
The next bootcamp drill is a bit more fun. Give it a try with your group.
Title: Complete Your Age In __________
All you have to do with this finisher drill is insert your own exercise. I.e. Burpees. I'm 37, so that would be 37 burpees. Give it a go with your group at your next training session.
If you want to make it harder you could say.."Complete your age in burpees, push ups, sit ups and squats". Even better, get your clients to write their age on a bit of paper then ask players to swap. The number players are left with they complete in burpees.
If you want to get really creative here are 9 Burpee variations.

First, the good news. Our little girl is going to be a big sister! The doc thinks it's a girl, in which case we like the name Ava. So we'll have Alba & Ava... Or Alba and Leo if it's a boy.
It was the 12 week scan so it's hard to tell. But yeah, exciting times ahead. Being a dad is hard work at times, but I wouldn't change it for the world. The happiness Alba has brought in to our lives is incredible. Anyway!
It's been almost 2 years since I last stepped foot in a gym and I really don't miss it. These days I much prefer to train at home in the garden. It's super time efficient and distraction free.
Plus I enjoy adapting my workouts in to group fitness class ideas for my members.
I prioritise family time above all else now. I have a series of Kettle-bells, a pull up bar, slam ball, a pair of 24k adjustable dumbbells and a weights bench.
Oh, and a pair of running shoes.
See. I'm not training for anything specific other than to keep myself fit & lean, so you won't see me deadlifting 300lbs, flipping tractor types or trying to set any records.
Actually, I would like a tractor tyre :-).
I train for 20 minutes per day consistently (when I'm not out running, hiking or cycling) and I've never been in better shape.
Here's another workout from my Fit In 20 group. Each day I design a brand new 20-minute workout and hold my members (and myself) accountable for doing it.
If you'd like to be more consistent with your fitness, you should join our tribe. The workouts I post are not usually this tough. This is a one off, so please complete it first before unleashing it on to your clients.
I'll be super impressed if you complete the full 2 rounds.
