Winter Is Near - LETS STAY FIT! (and Warm) 

So the colder months are now getting closer and the days are shortening, so there is no doubt it does become harder to wake up early for a 6am boot camp session in the dark and usually even worse to try and make it happen when you get home from work at the end of the day.  I struggle with it some days too, as we are all human.  But exercise is proven to really help with the 'winter blues' and sets us up better to leap into spring and summer with better fitness than if you hibernate during winter.  So do yourself a favour and hang onto your current fitness with some winter fitness maintenance by continuing to attend our sessions regularly.  

Super Boot Camp Saturdays are a good way to help you with maintain this fitness during winter with the time being a little later (7:30am) and they'll be at  some new challenging locations around our region and not our conventional sessions either, Ie. Ropes, tyres, heavy objects, team work. 

Plus read on to find out about our up coming fitness testing week, but fear not as they double as great sessions in their own right, so come along anyway. 
There will be NO Bootcamps on ANZAC DAY, Monday 25th April. 

Fitness Testing Week (2nd-6th May)

The only way to really know you are improving your fitness and strength is to measure it.  The are many ways this can be done, so we are going to introduce a variety of different tests into some boot camp sessions spread over a week at at the different locations.  This is nothing to be scared about, as the only comparisons that will be made, will be from your own results.  However, if you would prefer not to be tested, come along to the sessions anyway, as the tests will provide a good workout for you nonetheless and we just won't tell you, your results.  

Here is a list of the sessions that will include the tests;

Saturday Super Boot Camp - Now 7:30am

Saturdays Super Boot Camps are off to a good start and those that have attended so far have enjoyed the changes and the challenges that the new locations have provided.  On Saturday we had a good group of 9 attack the Tamaki St Steps from bottom to the very top with some good times posted.  Then the session continued with some team activities that resulted in the winning team having the benefit of choosing their team objects for the carry to the top.   Then each team finished off with carrying approximately 50-60kgs of weight up the 380 odd stairs to the top together. 

We do hope this inspires you all to attend the Saturdays more regularly, have some fun with team based activities and adventures, while also attracting new attendees to some new challenging sessions in our region.  This coming Saturday is back to the beach for some rope work with Laura, then the following week will be on Saturday 30th April with Nige at Botanics (Centre of NZ) and likely resulting in some more team games and heavy object carrying to the top of the centre of NZ and likely to end with a beautiful sunrise whilst there.

So spread the word, set your own alarm and bring some friends along too.
