Summer’s Here…It’s Boot(Y) Camp Time!!

Posted by:

If you’re an AM WOD’er, you’re probably wondering what’s up with the blood, sweat and Euro-trash music you’re hearing next door every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6am.

It’s Trident’s Bootcamp For Women, and it’s starting to rock the house! I realized a while ago that as much as I like to pick up heavy stuff, put it down and repeat, that’s not necessarily everyone’s cup o’ java when it comes to working out. That’s why we created the bootcamp program.

Booty camp uses the same intensity and training methodology of Crossfit (afterall, it works, so why re-invent the wheel?), but without the dedicated heavy lifting or technical barbell lifts. Its main emphasis is on conditioning. Yes, it can still get you stronger, but we’re not honing in on increasing 1 Rep Max strength.

It’s a perfect match for the ladies who are intrigued by Crossfit and the results it achieves, but may be a little reluctant to hammer out heavy deadlifts and back squats as part of their normal training regimen.

I hear of cases like this almost everyday from our athletes who have wives, girlfriends, co-workers, etc. who just can’t stomach the thought of Crossfit itself but want the same intensity. What a  disservice it would be to that crowd not to offer an alternative fitness program that helps them get the same kick-ass results that Crossfit delivers. Trident’s boot camp is the answer!

It’s swimsuit Season baby, so it’s time to get to work (Sorry T-battle, SOS season may not work in this case)! Come ask Coach Chad (or email me at chad@tridentcrossfitva.com) if you have questions or know of any ladies who may want to start working and get in the best shape of their lives! Like Crossfit, the program works will ALL fitness levels. You don’t have to be a natural born badass to join up!
