If you wish, you can start with a good stretch in the morning by joining the Yoga class for an hour before the ‘real’ work begins.
The boot camp training consists of 6 days a week Mon-Sat high with high cardio (fat burning) in the morning, using highly advanced techniques (request trip notes for further details and videos about this). These classes vary from Strenght & Conditioning, Crosstraining, Bodyfit, Spinning and Boxercise. They are designed to increase your fitness fast and efficiently. The groups typically have people training with a moderate physical condition and peak physical condition; this works well as the exercises are modified depending on your fitness levels and ability, so no one is left behind. The indoor gym is open on Sundays for those who want to train on the day off.
The Bodyfit class is an all-over cardio and body pump workout.
Sessions will never be the same from day to day so you hit every muscle group and keep your body guessing. It is perfect for beginners to more advanced participants.
Like all the classes the added bonus is of training outdoors, in a tropical climate, your body will sweat like no tomorrow giving you a fresh, revived feeling after your workout.
Every exercise is explained beforehand and carefully monitored during the workout to make sure good form is maintained.
Open Matt Sessions
The whole camp is at your disposal to do your workout. Use all the equipment the camp offers like battle ropes, assault course, medicine balls, prowler, bikes, free weights, crossfit rig and torsonater. we also have Olympic weightlifting bars with plates you can drop and a bunch of free weights so you can do your own WOD (Workout Of the Day) by yourself or team up with some of the other Xtreme Gappers.
The sport of Olympic Weightlifting involves participants completing two separate lifts; the snatch and the clean and jerk. In Olympic Weightlifting class you will learn how to perform these lifts. Performing this type of exercises will help with increasing power, speed, flexibility and strength.
The class is recommended for those who have little or no experience with these lifts. Coaches will put a heavy emphasis on obtaining proper form and execution of these lifts before you start to really increase weight used in these exercises. The class is simple once you understand the theory behind the lift but may take some time to apply it to the exercise. However, once you nail the technique you will have a great all-round exercise and challenge for any future workout. Building your core will help you to take this exercise past your limit as a strong and stable core will help you with balance and to perform this movement with all your muscles working as one.
