Frequently Asked Questions
What is a typical workout like?
There is a lot of variety to the workouts so they are interesting and challenging. We start with a warm up and stretch and from there the exercises vary from body weight moves like push ups to team relays to working with light weights. No two workouts are ever the same. The routines progress throughout the weeks as your fitness level improves.
What if I am not in shape for your workouts?
That's exactly why we are here - to get you in shape. Many of the members are just starting to exercise or getting back into it. All of the exercises in our boot camp can be modified or tailored to your level of fitness.
Where is the boot camp located?
Van Horne Park - The entrance is off Route 206 (behind the Burger King) across from the Princeton Airport. We meet in the pavilion near the parking lot. Map - Van Horne Park
Who attends your camp?
Women and men who are ready to get in shape. Typically people are in their 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's and the levels of fitness vary.
Will I be sore after the workouts?
You will probably be sore after the first couple of sessions. This is a good thing - it means your muscles have been working. After the first week, you may have some mild muscle soreness from time to time.
What do I need to bring to camp?
Wear workout clothes that are appropriate for the weather, good cross-training or running shoes, water bottle and a small towel. Mats will be provided. Occasionally, members will be asked to bring 5 or 8 lbs (advanced members) hand weights.
And bring a good attitude to the park - it's mandatory.
