Bootcamp is circuit style training with a combination of HIIT style workouts and strength training. We address full body fitness and focus on building muscle and keeping your heart rate elevated for about 45 minutes of hard work in between a warmup and stretch. The goal is to challenge you, but still have a class that is accessible to all levels of fitness through changes in weights, progressions, and regressions of the exercises.
The unique protocol used in Tabata Bootcamp™ is the 20-10 microburst intervals. An interval consists of performing specifically chosen exercises at an ultra high intensity for 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest. The beauty behind these short microbursts is that 20 seconds at high intensity is doable and the 10 second rest allows for brief recovery before moving on to the next exercise interval. These 20-10 microburst intervals are stacked in the 30 minute group workouts in specific sequences of different exercise movements that target EVERY part of your body!
This class will begin with a light warm up which may consist of either: a light in-place calisthenic/dynamic stretching circuit written on the whiteboard, an 8 minute cardio machine rotation, or a light jog outside. The main bulk of the class will be a total body circuit with a strong focus on weight training techniques. Expect thorough explanation and demonstration on each station of the circuit prior to starting, as well as consistent form correction and scientific explanation throughout. The circuit often runs at 40 seconds on and 20 seconds off, and also includes body weight or otherwise cardio type exercises at each station, keeping heart rate elevated throughout the class. The class will end with a rigorous fast pace abdominal training circuit and five to ten minutes reserved for foam rolling/stretching afterwords.
