If you have a fitness goal but lack the motivation and know-how to proceed towards that goal you do have options. You could join the classes at the gym, but with so many people coming and going, the instructors may not be there for the individual support.
That leaves you with the option of hiring a trainer. You still have options with this. You can join a boot camp lead by a trainer or hire a personal trainer. The choice you make is like going to come down to cost and your goals.
You will get all of the attention you need during a one-on-one session with a trainer. Some people prefer the personal attention you’d get with one-on-one training. Some people need it. Not everyone can handle the pace of a boot camp.
A personal trainer will be thorough in their approach to training you by conducting proper assessments of your posture, balance and ability to perform certain movements. This should be done before you pick up any weights. This will is something you may not get in a boot camp setting.
Another benefit of one-on-one training is the opportunity to work with someone who can relate to you. You probably wouldn’t hire a bodybuilder to help you lose weight. You may start with someone who has struggled with their weight, overcome the obstacles, and is able to motivate you to do the same.
With personal training, your results are going to depend largely on what you do between your sessions in regards to your nutrition and exercise. If you can only afford to see your trainer once a week you’ll have to keep yourself motivated a great deal.
With boot camps, you won’t get personal attention. The instructor will, however, have a program designed where modifications can be made for those who need them.
For example, a standard push-up becomes a modified push-up. Different size weights will be made available as needed. You will still get a great workout, but you can go at your own pace. Plus, you’ll get to play fun fitness games! Check this out!
Boot camps are extremely cost effective. In some cases, what you would pay for 4 sessions of personal training you may get an entire month with the opportunity to work out 5 days a week in a boot camp. This takes away the thought of having to do anything on your own, which is great for motivation.
The biggest benefit of boot camps is the motivation you get from working out alongside other people who are similar to you. A boot camp should be tough, yet challenging. Otherwise, what’s the point?
Boot camp vs. personal training. What should I do?
Can you get results doing a boot camp? Yes. Can you get results with personal training? Yes.
So, when deciding which is best, boot camp vs. personal training, what it comes down to is, how much attention you want and need, how much motivation and know-how you have to get things done on your own, and how much you’re willing to spend.
