Today I led my first Bootie Camp. I’ve taken both Bootie Camp and Boot Camp through my local Curves many times over the past 2 years. I love both classes because they pump up my workout and force me to really work. A while ago, I was given the opportunity to begin leading the classes and today was my first chance to do so.
The way these classes work at Curves is that you have a warm-up, complete the normal circuit but on the cardio pads amped up cardio suggestions are offered that everyone follows, and then there’s 15-20 minutes of ab work followed by the Curves stretches.
Here’s my first Bootie Camp exercises. Go try them next time you work out.
