Why Bootcamp Training?
What does training this way achieve? Bootcamp challenges every muscle in your body and with little rest in between each set; you're bound to feel the burn and intensity. By constantly moving, your body has little time to rest, therefore you boost your bodies metabolic ‘fat burning’ ability, even after you finish.
It's a fantastic way to challenge your body and mind, as all movements require concentration which helps to keep your brain active.
Is Bootcamp for me?
Bootcamp is for the strong, the weak, the fit, and the not so fit. There is no discrimination, as long as you have the will to finish what you started, at your own pace and continue to challenge yourself week on week.
Whether you’re male or female, strength training is absolutely necessary for the health of your body. In addition to making muscles stronger and boosting metabolism, training with weights and body resistance can make your bones stronger, improving and preventing debilitating conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis and back pain. It can also correct postural imbalances and boost overall balance.
Many women are scared to workout in this way as they are worried they will become overly muscular. Well, I hate to disappoint ladies, but women simply do not have the hormonal profile to build mass amounts of muscle. However, what strength training will do is build lean muscle which will burn more body fat and give more strength, tone and definition to the body.
What does an OSLO Bootcamp class consist of?
Bootcamp training - otherwise known as German body composition training - combines multi-joint movements with high-intensity interval training which are both key components of building fitness.
This type of training is suited to absolute beginners and elite athletes alike due to its ability to create the best version of you. Whether you decide to do one or 4 classes per week, you will reap the benefits of reduced body fat, increased lean muscle mass, stronger bones and joints and improved muscle tone.
Oslo Bootcamp Equipment
1-Dimensional training does not carry into a 3-dimensional world, a world where twisting, turning and moving in all planes is an everyday occurrence. This understanding of everyday movement is where the RIP:60 was born out of. The RIP:60 training technique targets the entire body, so your training is not only effective but also time efficient. Each exercise focuses on building flexibility, static/rotational strength, stability and balance by replicating natural movements such as pulling, pushing, twisting lunging and squatting.
Training on the RIP:60 helps to:
- Improve the way your body moves and feels
- Decreases body fat
- Increases lean muscle mass
- Boosts energy and endurance
- Improves balance
- Improves flexibility
- Improves athletic performance
Plyometric exercises stimulate several different muscle groups at the same time, making them perfect for achieving full body workouts in short periods of time for those of us with a busy lifestyle.
Although plyometric movements were historically used to improve athletic performance, today they are taught by trainers to clients of all fitness levels to improve fat loss, strength and endurance. Plyometric exercises are great for challenging your fast-twitch muscle fibres, coordination and agility, enabling you to improve balance, neuromuscular signalling, cardiovascular fitness and strength quite quickly.
In our Oslo Health Bootcamp classes, we teach a range of plyometric exercises using our plyometric boxes. Our ethos is based on exercise variety. The more variety of movements the faster you reach your fitness goals.
Mat work training can range from dynamic to stationary. It is a wonderful way to take your training with you anywhere. Movements can range from planks to V-sits, burpees to press-ups, again, enabling you to achieve a full body workout with little to no equipment. In our Bootcamp classes at Oslo Health, we enjoy challenging you differently in every class. This means you may be slamming sand disks and lifting sandbags at this station one day and doing cardio Pilates movements the next.
When you keep your body and your muscles guessing what is coming next they will continuously adapt and strengthen. If you do the same exercises often your fitness results can stagnate and plateau leaving you feeling frustrated and deflated.
If you are new to our studio and want to give this a try, our introductory offer of 2 classes for €20 is the way to go!
