Is a Bootcamp-Workout Routine Right for You?

The Downfalls of Bootcamp

  • Age Restrictive: The Mayo Clinic suggests that you should not start a bootcamp-workout routine if you are over the age of 40, pregnant or have led a sedentary lifestyle for several years. Properly supervised activity can be safe at any age. Be sure you're working with an experienced and qualified trainer before starting a program, regardless of age or experience.
  • Impersonal Instruction: Because of the group nature of bootcamp classes, they are not geared towards your own specific fitness needs. If you have a special condition or personal questions, it's best to seek the services of a personal trainer.
