Fall of the exercise wagon? It’s ok we all do sometimes and with so many of us making new years resolutions to get fit or lose weight about now is the time a lot of people are giving up on those resolutions but don’t it takes about 4 weeks for you to start seeing results and 8 weeks for friends and family to start seeing the results so keep going. If you are getting tired of you workout already then try a boot camp they are a big trend this year working your whole body and burning some serious calories.
Boot camp at Maximum Performance is built on the fundamentals of training—cardio, strength, and agility—boot-camp workouts require little more than your body weight to get results, There boot camp is more intense than any fitness class and more fun than traditional gym workouts.
Put aside your stability ball: Boot camps are all about bare essentials, starting with the moves.
By stringing together exercises like jumping jacks, pushups, and squats into circuits that go from one move to the next with little or no rest in between, these workouts turn your body into an uber-efficient resistance machine. The moves target muscles throughout your entire body. They're much more effective than equipment-based exercises that isolate one single muscle group at a time. So what should expect when going to boot camp?
Follow the Clock. It keeps you from pushing too hard and from slacking. "If I told you 'Do squats until I say stop,' you wouldn't give 100 percent. But if I said 'Do squats for 30 seconds,' you'd work harder because you'd see the end in sight." says Mike from Maximum Performance.
Buddy Up. One key to success is camaraderie. "A group makes you accountable to show up, and the support helps you push through an intense workout," Mike says.
When it comes to fitness, the power of your peeps is well documented: One review of 87 studies on nearly 50,000 subjects found a clear link between social support and exercise. Enlist a small group of friends who have similar fitness goals and pick a time and place. If you're a no-show, next time they'll make you drop and do 20.
