Some people come to the Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym with a specific purpose in mind. To lose weight. To get in shape. To build muscle. To train for a triathlon or athletic team tryouts. But no matter what your health and fitness goal is – and despite the diversity of classes and equipment that our Greenville sports club offers, which can suit almost any need – there is one option that’s applicable to every member: boot camp.
Although the name may be intimidating and the curriculum is intensive, you shouldn’t be afraid to try boot camp. Your instructor will help you warm up and cool down after exercises and keep in touch with your needs and limitations so that you can make the most of the challenging classes. Regardless of what you’ve seen in those army movies, at Pivotal Fitness Greenville it’s is all about getting you in shape – not kicking your butt.
The purpose of any boot camp is to strengthen your core and challenge your limits in order to break down barriers of physical fitness. This is in terms of endurance as well as sheer strength, and mixes many influences of aerobic exercise and muscle coordination. While you can lift weights or work out anytime on your own, participating in boot camp is the foundational training you need to make the most of any additional exercise. You might be training your quads and hamstrings for running on the treadmill, but the all-over body workout of boot camp strengthens your lungs, your heart and your core to help you run longer, faster. It’s all part of one complete training package.
Plus, you can join these group fitness classes on a regular basis with the same trainers and classmate who can encourage you to keep going and share your growing pains as you teach your body to reach new heights. After all, doesn’t suffering with friends always make it more fun? And you have people to commiserate or celebrate with after you’ve reached a new level of tolerance and stamina.
Boot camp classes take place about twice a week; you can check this month’s Fitness Schedule (under “Services” on the home page) for exact times. Ask about introductory and complementary classes you can take to prepare you to join and enjoy boot camp.
