15123065_1348081375235979_4580059795405238423_oWhat is Boot Camp?

Boot Camp workouts are quickly becoming one some of the fastest growing strength and conditioning  programs in America.  It is designed to be a vigorous workout that combines strength training, aerobics and gymnastics all in one so that you become fitter than you could ever imagine.

Boot Camp offers a balance of Intensity, Effort, Community, and Coaching, and is a great way to implement physical training into a group setting.

What does a typical Boot Camp workout look like?

AMP Bootcamp classes are under 60 minutes and typically start with a dynamic warm up and various mobility exercises designed to get your body primed to work safely and effectively.  A Boot Camp session is comprised of combinations of strength and aerobic conditioning exercises, which implement any of the following, and more:

  • Body weight
  • Kettle bells
  • Medicine balls
  • Sandbags
  • Plyoboxes
  • Shuttle Runs
  • Band Work
  • Partner-assisted Exercises

These are just a few of the techniques that we utilize. Our Boot Camp is a vigorous workout that can help you reach your goals with proper nutritional support.

There are more similarities than differences between AMP and Boot Camp, but the main difference is the absence of technical barbell work during Boot Camp. Boot Camp is more of a continuous, fast-paced workout, with less breaks, and not a lot of “learned” movements or technical knowledge required.

During Boot Camp you will develop endurance, stamina, strength and speed.  All of these will benefit anyone looking to perform their sport at a higher capacity for a longer period of time.

If you want a highly intense workout designed for any fitness level, but aren’t of the mindset to study the technical movements of AMP, then Boot Camp might be the perfect option for you.

Our Boot Camp classes are appropriate for all fitness levels.  If you’re new to fitness but are looking for a high intensity workout then Boot Camp may also be the perfect option for you.

Why AMP?

Intensity

We know that “intensity brings results“.  If you only have 60 minutes to get yourself fitter, than we want to make the most of it.  The condensed, nonstop movements of our Boot Camp classes may be something as simple three or four exercises repeated over a set amount of time OR a partner workout where you push each other to do your best.  Your workouts will vary daily and the constant shock and change to your routine will burn your system-in a good way.

Effort

Everyone wants results but not everyone puts in the effort.  In a regular gym it’s easy to skip reps or take long breaks between sets.  The way our Boot Camp classes are tailored, there’s no option other than maximum effort. It is our job deliver you an unmatched workout that will challenge you safely…but effectively.  It is  your job to show up and give your best effort.

Community

Often times, a gym is just a collection of random people focused on doing their own different exercises.  At AMP Strength & Conditioning we are a community, a family that constantly encourages one another.

Whether it’s Boot Camp or any of our other classes, AMP is about competing against yourself and not others. In fact, since the exercises are done in group workouts, the others often encourage you and help you push your boundaries. Even the people who finish last get a round of high-fives for pushing themselves as hard as they can.

Everyone has the same goal in mind: to get in the best shape possible. Because of that, everyone is on the same team and working for the same goals. The camaraderie at AMP is part of what makes this exercise experience so unique.

Coaching

We have a talented staff of certified instructors who understand the human body, nutrition and how the Boot Camp programming should be implemented for all athletes regardless of fitness level.  These coaches can tailor any workout to meet the needs of every member and support them all along the way.
