Let me set the record straight - I hate the word "bootcamp". It can tend to insinuate that it is a class for the elite, in-shape, hard-core fitness lovers. However, since Glow Fitness shies away from the typical fitness culture in our society today (stick thin/six packs/big booties = self worth, beauty, sexiness, etc), our Monday and Wednesday Power Hour Bootcamp classes at 6am are for people of all sizes, shapes, ages, and fitness levels.
We provide a thorough warm-up complete with squats, walking lunges, bear walks, inchworms, hip circles, arm circles, and all sorts of other stretches and basic/simple exercises. We then move into the workout that includes cardiovascular (slow or fast burpees, walking lunges, plank jacks, kettlebell swings, etc), strength (pushups, squats, outer and inner hip/thigh lifts, etc), and core exercises (plank, bridges, abdominal hollowing, belly breathing, crunches, reverse crunches, etc). Finally, there is a cool down and stretching period where women can ask questions or talk through the workout.
We make sure that every single exercise has at least 2 other modifications, including a beginner/intermediate/and advanced option. Almost all exercises are low-impact with options to increase to a high-impact version. AND, we modify everything for our prenatal and postnatal mamas!
It's a win for everyone!
I hope this quick spotlight on our Power Hour Bootcamp classes have remedied any fear, anxieties, or incorrect assumptions that any of you lovely women have had.
