Our new boot camp in Reading is one of a series of fitness sessions in Reading that we hold in Christchurch Meadows in Caversham. We currently have a group of about 25 individuals who attend up to four of our exercise lessons each week. The sessions run on a Tuesday and Thursday evening at 7pm and we also have two classes at the weekend. The Saturday morning session starts at 9am and the Sunday morning session begins at 10am. New participants are always welcome, simply turn up and join in on the day.
Our sessions always start off with a 10 minute dynamic flexibility 0 when we get the group to do some gentle jogging and common stretches whilst on the move. This assists the members get properly warmed up and will help stop injury in the course of the workouts.
This is then normally followed by a circuit or resistance training 0. The group appreciate this portion the most as we let them use the “fitness toys” which incorporate kettle bells, skipping ropes, boxing pads and medicine balls. Along with body weight drills such as squats and push ups, we use the toys to sculpt and tone people’s muscle groups.
We always finish the session with a sprinting 0. This can involve long distance running drills, which can be great for fitness but very seldom for body fat loss. To invoke body fat loss we use High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) drills. These normally consist of a series of sprint drills in between cones which produce lactic acid in the blood. This lactic acid is extremely effective for body fat burning and is one of the principles we base our boot camp sessions on.
By this stage the participants are commonly exhausted and we always finish with a rewarding cool down and stretch for the final 10 minutes. After a light jog we complete the session with a series of whole body stretches that begin to restore normal muscle length and start to reduce the levels of muscle soreness which are inevitable.
Along with the normal exercise classes in Reading all our members get a nutritional manual written by our in house certified nutritional therapist. This diet regime protocol is based on lower Glycemic or low GI concepts where people are encouraged to consume a lot more protein and healthful fats whilst limiting refined carbohydrates. There are no calorie restrictions or portion controls as the benefits come from the lower GI eating where insulin (fat storage hormone) levels are lowered, therefore reducing body fat storage. We also advise wise supplement products for our clients to help improve their final results.
We keep our clients motivated and accountable on every one of our programmes by assessing their body composition at the start and end of the programme. To attain this we use an Omron machine which measures both body fat levels and BMI.
