It’s a good way to get in shape, but those few pounds will likely sit there until your diet changes.

I have!

I think it greatly depends on the general fitness level of the class. In my boot camp I was one of the fitter girls (I consider myself fit enough, but not an athlete or anything so I was kind of surprised!) and it meant that it wasn’t as challenging for me. It was a fun change-of-pace though.

Bottomline for weight loss though is that it’s 80% diet and 20% (or even less) exercise – so it’s more about what you put in your mouth than how much you move your body.

It sounds like a great way to jump into the new year though! I say go for it.

I LOVE working out and boot camp is by FAR the best workout (at least the program at my gym).  I train about 5 days a week – 1 of which is boot camp.  The boot camp I attend is a mixture of cardio and weights and it completely wipes me out every time.  I would totally recommend trying a boot camp…you may need to try a few before you find one that is challenging enough for you!

I LOVE bootcamp!  I have done two sessions now and will be doing more before my wedding.  I am a pretty active person to start with and was concerned that boot camp would not be challenging enough.  I was totally wrong!  The instructors had high impact and low impact options and often gave the “fitter” people in the class more reps or longer runs to do.  I lost about 5 pounds per 4 week session – but I do agree with everyone else that changing your diet is going to be key to losing wieght.

If I were you, I would at least try it!

I haven’t experienced much weight loss (unlike most people in my program), but I have experienced significant loss of inches, increased toning, running endurance, and overall better conditioning.  I am a big believer in boot camp!
