Fitness Friday: Summer Bootcamp

Holy cow, I can’t believe the 8 weeks have already passed for Best Body Bootcamp! I’m certainly not new to the program at this point so I knew what I was getting myself into when I signed up. This time around, however, I had some different goals. For my first two rounds, I was getting ready for the wedding; with this round, I was getting back into shape from the honeymoon! 😉

In all seriousness, I’m a planner; I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I absolutely love having a workout schedule already planned out for me. There is no thinking involved! And if I’m waking up before the clock strikes 6, you can bet I appreciate any and all help in the thinking department. I have, without a doubt, noticed some changes over the past 8 weeks.

I’ve also learned a few things during during the 8-week program.

  • Rest days are important! Your muscles need a break and when you give that to them, they repair and are stronger for future workouts.
  • I’m a weights girl. I would 100% rather do a strength training workout with heavy weights than do a body weight workout.
  • While it’s nice to have set workouts, it’s equally as nice to be able to swap things around and make the workouts work for you.
  • Having a community of people participating in the same program and acting as a support group is really motivating. [Ok, I already knew this, but it’s a great reminder!]
  • Upper body workouts are my jam.

If you’re at all considering Best Body Bootcamp, I highly recommend it. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced, there are adjustments to all of the moves to make them easier or harder and you can always get a challenging workout! Registration for the fall session begins August 19th and goes through September 6th. The programs starts September 9th, so mark your calendars and don’t forget to register!
