Unlimited Workout Ideas For Your Bootcamp
How To Create Awesome, Effective Bootcamp Workouts
Over the past decade, bootcamps have appeared in what seems to nearly every park in a populated area all around the world. Most of these bootcamp businesses fit into three types.
First is the ‘burn out and fade away’ bootcamps that seem to pop up and disappear after the first day of bad weather. You have probably had these appear and disappear in your area. Maybe you have even run one of these bootcamps yourself. I know my first outdoor sessions were miserable.
Next you have the well marketed bootcamp that has flyers and posters everywhere. These tend to flourish but have a high turnover of clients if the bootcamp itself doesn’t deliver.
Lastly there is the ‘quite achiever’ bootcamps that run for years and years building with a slow but steady stream of referrals and a low dropout rate.
The last bootcamp described there is quite interesting, these guys do not do a lot of advertising, in fact, they are often relatively unknown compared to the big commercial fitness programs in the same area.
However, it’s these same low profile bootcamps that have trainers turning over high incomes all by themselves.
One of the things that these quiet achievers do well is create fun and interesting bootcamp workouts week after week. The consistent quality of their workouts keeps people coming back session after session just to experience the next workout.
The only problem is, where to find a renewable supply of fun and interesting workouts?
Who are you? (next tab)
My name is Kyle Wood, you may know me from my site Bootcamp Ideas.
I did not originally come from a fitness background.
I always enjoyed being creative, but squashed this part out of the way in light of the conventional safe prospects of being an engineer. I gave up my hobbies of drawing, drama and music to pursue what I thought would be a lifetime career behind a desk.
That sounds like a recipe for disaster doesn’t it? Well it was.
Not too far into that career, I worked out that engineering wasn’t giving me the satisfaction I desired. So I got qualified as a Personal Trainer and began doing some training on the side which eventually led to working full time in the fitness industry .Does this sound familiar?
I discovered that what was originally a little hobby, was suddenly giving me that creative outlet that I had missed since my days in high school.
Around 6 weeks after working as a trainer, I discovered that I was a pretty terrible salesman. All I really wanted to do was to introduce people to exercise and see that it wasn’t the big scary monster that many non-exercisers believe it to be. I didn’t want to pressure them into training with me or catch them out with tricky questions.
I just wanted to help people.
So I began to focus on what I was good at, delivering fun workouts that were also effective and challenging. When I began running bootcamps it was no different. I took the same approach as I did to Personal Training and spent hours planning and arranging my bootcamp workouts to be as effective and enjoyable as possible to a wide range of fitness levels.
Without realising it, this approach led me to create a ‘quiet achiever’ bootcamp. A bootcamp that grew just by helping people and delivering awesome workouts.
Sounds too good to be true?
Through my website Bootcamp Ideas, I discovered that there was dozens of other trainers in South Africa, the United Kingdom, the USA, Australia and New Zealand who were already doing or where looking to do the same thing.
This reaffirmed to me the importance of workouts in the longevity of a bootcamp business.

Hey Kyle. I just wanted to say thank you for the emails and cool workouts. I’ve been enjoying them immensely and have been getting amazing results. I just wanted to share my appreciation.Thanks again.

Each chapter of the guide book focuses on a different area of your bootcamp workouts.
- The planning chapter will teach you how to plan out your bootcamps in advance. Whether you run 4, 6, or 12 week programs or even ongoing programs, I will teach you my formula for brainstorming, designing and implementing a set of workouts. This will give your clients more variety and balance and you more piece of mind knowing that you are prepared.
- The chapter on no equipment teaches you how to include variety when you don’t have much or any equipment available. A common problem for beginning bootcamps.
- Circuits will teach you how to move your clients around a circuit in more exciting ways than with just a stop watch and one minute intervals. It will also teach you how to increase or decrease the intensity of the circuit for different fitness levels.
- The Team Challenges chapter gives you the skills to run an important type of bootcamp workout, team challenges and games. Challenges should be a core part of any bootcamps workouts, I teach you the different types and how to use them.

Can’t I just get all this information for free?
Of course you can, and I encourage you to continue to access as much free information as possible. Bootcamp Ideas is limited by being a blog though. It is hard to access archives and one thing I discovered while writing this book is that a lot of my old workout descriptions were pretty horrible.
This book gives you 19 of my workouts – revamped with better descriptions, in printable format and with diagrams – as well as something you can’t find on the site, a 29 page guide to the science behind the workouts.
I’m new, will the techniques and drills inside be too advanced?
Nope, this book is written for you! It’s everything I wish I had known when I was starting out.
I cover workouts with no equipment, how to use your environment, how to run fun circuits and how to create team challenges. You can take your time and just digest and experiment with one chapter at a time if you like.
Ok, how much? (next tab)
Firstly, I just wanted to say how much I love Boot Camp Ideas. It really is an absolute god send.

As well as running my boot camps and business I work full time so having help with the programs saves me so much time. Thank you so much!!
