It’s time for the ritual New Years Resolution where we make hopeful promises to ourselves that we are unlikely to keep without some extreme effort and accountability. One of the most common goals is to regain control of our weight and/or health. Consider these differences between boot camp vs gym membership and how this might fit into your resolution goals.
Boot Camp vs Gym Membership
Let’s start with gym memberships:
Gym memberships offer a cheap way to access a variety of exercise equipment. Some big box gyms also offer classes and even daycare. The reality is, however, that most people who walk into a gym have no idea what they’re doing, or how to put in an effective workout. Gyms make their money off of those who sign up and eventually fizzle out by the time March rolls around.
What about boot camp memberships:
Boot camp runs more like a guided class, designed to offer a balanced and effective workout throughout the week. Boot camp is great for beginners and seasoned alike. Unlike a basic gym membership, boot camp offers more personal attention from a certified personal trainer as you work toward your goals, without the added cost of hiring a personal trainer at the bigger gym. Boot camp also brings you into a community of others who keep you accountable and encourage you to show up. And, it’s a lot of fun (just ask the veterans!)

You know yourself the best. If you’ve already gone the gym membership route and fell off the wagon, maybe it’s time to consider the boot camp route. If it’s all about goals, why waste another year?
