Outdoor Boot Camp at the Yards

Bummed because you missed the first round of outdoor boot camp? You’re in luck because round two is just around the corner!

Our Yards location will be running two different boot camps starting May 11th – one lead by VIDA Trainer & Group Fitness Instructor Kelly Moyers on Mondays & Wednesdays at 6:30pm, and one lead by VIDA Master Trainer Sam Yousefi  on Tuesdays at 6:30am and Saturdays at 11am.

As always, you’ll have the option of doing once or twice a week sessions, whichever fits your schedule better! Our boot camps are small group style – so you’ll receive individual attention from your instructor while also working out in a group setting that pushes you to challenge yourself in ways difficult to do on your own.

Boot camp instructor Kelly Moyers says group workouts are one of the best ways to stay motivated to reach your goals, and guarantees that you’ll see improvement in your fitness level after completing the program!

“Workouts are 100% more fun when you’re working out as a team. You’re pushing each other, encouraging each other, seeing each other struggle through the same challenges, and it motivates you to all finish together!” says Kelly.

Our boot camp meets in the lobby, and then heads out to the park as a group. Once you’re there, you can expect a combination of all fitness aspects into one sweaty, hour-long session including cardio, strength, flexibility and balance exercises. Expect to learn a ton of new squat and push-up variations, mixed in with lots of running and jogging (sometimes up and down stairs for an added bonus.)

You’ll work frequently with a partner or as a group to complete a workout, which helps give you that extra boost you need to finish an exercise when your body feels like giving up. Kelly stresses that the group camaraderie of boot camp is what makes the format so successful.

“There is something about the group mentality, where going through it alone may seem impossible but going through it with your friends and teammates makes it feel like you can do anything. Working out with others undoubtedly allows students to push themselves to the limit so they can smile and be proud of themselves afterwards,” says Kelly.

Our outdoor boot camps are tough, but totally customizable to all fitness levels. Modifications to exercises are always offered so whether you’re doing push-ups on your knees or toes, you’re going to get an intense workout no matter what.

Plus, you’ll meet a ton of new people! Bonds form pretty quickly when you’re going through the same burpee-torture together, and especially when you share the same common goals with your teammates.

“Boot camp is a process where you challenge yourself, you learn from your teammates, you struggle together and you get stronger together. The purpose of boot camp is show someone a part of themselves they haven’t seen before. You’ll make lifelong changes through the friendships made in boot camp. No one gets left behind – we work through everything TOGETHER!” Kelly emphasizes.
