Regular Exercise Versus Boot Camp & Personal Training

Boot camps were traditionally designed in order to increase the endurance, strength and stamina of military recruits. They help in achieving weight loss and getting a toned and fit body. Working with fitness trainers has tremendous advantages over regular exercise.

Exposure to natural surroundings

Most of the workouts that are done at Dangerously Fit Personal Training are performed outdoors. Hence the participants are exposed to fresh air and sunlight. This helps in increasing immunity, increasing production of Vitamin D and strengthens the core of the body. Regular exercises are generally done indoors on exercise equipment and do not offer the benefits of being surrounded by a natural environment.

Group workouts

It is always better to exercise in a group rather than workout alone. Group workouts promote team spirit, discipline and healthy competition. Participants from different backgrounds bond with each other and it leads to healthy relationships. You do not get these advantages when you work out alone.

 

Motivation

A boot camp consists of like-minded people who have the common goal of getting a healthy and active lifestyle. The achievements of one participant can help in motivating others. This is not possible when you work out alone.

Variety of activities

Regular gym workouts offer a specific set of exercises like squats, crunches, aerobic exercises or exercising on health equipment. On the other hand, Dangerously Fit boot camp offers a number of different physical activities such as climbing the hill, jogging along the riverside, trekking, swimming, cycling, relay racing etc. This helps in making workouts fun and participants look forward to doing these fun activities.

Mental stimulation

A boot camp increases mental ability, concentration, makes the mind agile and boosts memory power. This is because the exercises that are done in a Sydney boot camp increase the blood flow to the tissues and make the brain work faster.

Challenging limits

Boot camps in Sydney helps you break barriers and challenge limits. There is greater scope to challenge your body when you are a part of a boot camp. This maximizes the effects of your workouts and helps in getting faster results.

Change in scenery

When you workout in a gym, you perform the exercises in the same location. There is minimum scope for change in location. However, various activities offered in a Sydney boot camp allow you to have a change in scenery. Having different surroundings has a calming effect on your mind and makes you feel rejuvenated.

Accountability

When you are late for your exercise sessions or skip classes, you are accountable to your fitness trainer. However, the accountability increases when you are a part of a boot camp. In a boot camp if you are late or if you skip sessions, it gets noticed amongst your team members. Hence you tend to have an increased level of commitment and there is a general discipline that you maintain.

A boot camp helps you achieve weight loss, burn excess fat, get a toned body and fit lifestyle. It also helps in increasing confidence levels and mental ability. Thus you get faster and more effective results.

Don’t Just Focus on your Scale Weight


It is a machine that people love and love to hate- depending on the figures it throws up. The ubiquitous personal weighing machine – a gadget most people who work out regularly keep on hand to give them hard facts with regard to their weight.

It is almost like a ‘mirror, mirror on the wall’ love-hate relationship.  If the readings show you have lost weight, the machine becomes a favourite tool – if not, it can earn your ire and disgust.

The most important before you get on your weighing machine is to understand how many calories you should eat to lose weight. Best is to use a calorie tool which will tell you exactly your daily calorie allowance. This needs to be recalculated each time you lose weight.

A daily obsession

If you try to check weight loss on a daily basis, you are in for a large slice of disappointment. The body weight fluctuates from one day to another and at times can show changes even in one day.

Because of this it would be sensible to avoid getting hooked to daily weight checking and putting yourself through an experience that is neither helpful nor encouraging. Try to understand how the body works and you will get a better grip on avoiding such a discouraging experience.

The ups and downs

Yes, after working out for some time, it would be beneficial to use the weighing scale to check for weight loss. If the figure shown reflects a drop in weight it can do wonders for your psyche.

You will go around with a cheerful attitude the whole day, in fact make efforts to cheer other people up and share the positive attitude losing weight has achieved for you. It is a good thing for sure. But the reverse can happen.  

On a particular day the scales may show if not an increased figure, just no improvement at all in your weight change. This can have a damaging effect.

After all the hard work outs you find that according to the scales you have not dropped a single pound, your expectant attitude will plummet and you will go around radiating a sense of negativity. Does it make sense? To let a weighing machine dictate how you should feel about yourself?

How it works

The weighing scale can often not reflect the real changes that take place inside the body. Often there have been positive changes inside but which will not reflect on the weighing scale.

There are other ways to check whether you have indeed lost weight after weeks of working out. You could take a tape measure and measure the stomach, waist etc. to see if any inches have been lost. You could also check the clothes you used to wear to see if they have become loose?

These would be more concrete ways to find out if you have undergone any weight loss.  So, yes, keep the weighing scale handy, but do not get obsessed with it. Use it at respectable intervals when it will be sure to give you readings that will not disappoint you.

Other ways to help with losing weight

You should keep the scale as a kind of standby unit to check your weight once in a way. In the meantime you need to ensure that you carry on with your regular work outs and eat the right foods.

If you continue with a healthy regime of exercise and food there is no reason why your body will not response and you will lose weight. It is then and on set times that you should bring out the weighing scales.

With hard work and the right diet you will definitely see figures that will have you whistling all day. So starting now, get rid of the obsession of making the weighing scale your daily companion. It will prove a more trustworthy friend when used at suitable intervals.
