What sets HOF Bootcamp apart from other bootcamps, recreation centers or “big box” gyms?
You become an integral member of the HOF community where you develop deep friendships, motivate each other, cheer each other on and push each other harder than they would on their own. You come to need each other, expect each other to be there and look forward to seeing each other every day.
Each HOF TRAINING SESSION IS unique, creative and DIFFERENT EVERY DAY! You will not do the same workout in any month, but they will be randomly repeated so that you can track your progress over time. Each training session is specifically designed for you to experience rapid and measurable gains in your strength, endurance, coordination, balance, agility, power and speed. Each workout begins with a dynamic warmup and ends with a static stretch to increase and enhance your flexibility.
Are there exercise modifications?
EXERCISE MODIFICATIONS are provided for each movement as required due to medical or health constraints. Your personal needs are met in every workout, whether you have an on-going issue or one that may come up for any reason during a workout. You will never be left out or left behind for any reason.
How much is each class?
The investment in yourself is a FRACTION OF THE COST of hiring a personal trainer, as low as $8.00 per class (depending on the membership you have).
Does HOF offer free workouts?
HOF offers all kinds of FREE HOLIDAY EVENTS in addition to the daily workouts. You will find community events on Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and more.
Hardbody Outdoor Fitness is a paradigm shift in what we consider “fitness”. It is not just a one hour workout. It is an integral part of your daily life and has the ability to CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Really. Since 2007, we have watched countless members (and members who still stay in touch with us), completely transform their live’s since HOF’s inception. You can too.
What is a typical HOF class like?
THERE IS NO TYPICAL DAY with Hardbody Outdoor Fitness! That is what makes it so fun and so successful! Your body is constantly challenged because the exercises are different every day and the way in which you do the workouts varies as well. Sometimes you are working in a group, sometimes with a partner, sometimes by yourself.
BOOT CAMP NEVER GETS EASIER BECAUSE YOU JUST KEEP GETTING STRONGER!
Each workout will challenge you on a personal level. You will find out what you are made of, and you will always find out that you are made of much more than you originally thought. Each class begins with a dynamic warm-up followed by a 30-45 minute full body workout using “equipment” that is not usually found in a generic gym. Class ends with a series of stretches because increasing our flexibility is essential.
What if I have physical restrictions?
THERE ARE MODIFICATIONS TO EVERY EXERCISE! Your HOF coach (Shawn, Suzy and Jamel), will even give you a completely different exercise as needed to prevent further injury while ensuring you start and complete a great workout.
Can I come to any bootcamp class if I have a schedule conflict?
Yes! YOU CAN COME TO ANY CLASS TIME, ANY DAY as your schedule permits. You have a busy life and you need to be able to fit your workouts in whenever you can. Bootcamp classes take place in the AM at the current moment, so sometimes choosing a day of the week helps build consistency.
What to bring to class?
Whether HOF is indoors (winter months) or outdoors (warmer months), there are essential tools that you need to bring to class. Dumbbells (Women: at least 10lbs / Men: at least 15lbs), exercise gloves, water and mat (optional). We are always on the go and if the weather gets warmer than expected, wear layers in order to be comfortable. The goal is for you to peal those layers off in the event that you’re too hot or feel a chill.
