Bodyweight Exercises

Basic Bodyweight Exercises

In simplest terms, bodyweight exercises are those that use your own body for resistance and do not rely on extra equipment such as dumbbells, weight machines, treadmills, etc.

The fact that they don't require specialized equipment is one of their main advantages.  You can basically do them anywhere, anytime with little set up.  They are obviously a great choice for our No Gym, No Excuses program.

Another advantage is that they can be used in strength programs or in cardio programs.  We can use them to help your meet your personalized training goals.  After your assessment you will be able to adjust the bootcamp sessions if needed to help attain your individual goals.

Bodyweight exercises are appropriate for all fitness levels and most can be modified to make them easier or harder based on your personal assessment.  One person might be doing Tuck Jumps while another does High Steps in place.  Both people will be getting in a workout that is appropriate for their individual needs.

Bodyweight exercises help prevent boredom.  We can arrange them in limitless patterns in our bootcamp: group, circuits, HIIT, themes, etc.

Another general advantage is that bodyweight exercises have real world applications and practicality.  Being able to bend over and reach and jump and walk and push and pull and squat, etc. will help you live a happier, healthier, more independent lifestyle.  Carrying in groceries, picking yourself up if you fall, raking leaves, climbing a flight of stairs, etc. will all be easier if you master our bodyweight program.
