Discover the Benefits of a Military Workout

I have been using a Military Workout fitness routine to get fit and healthy – I discovered in the DVD “Back To The Basics – Fitness Program“. So I thought I would share my experiences using a military style fitness workout for my regular fitness routine. I am glad you found this blog and I strongly suggest you keep reading to here my story and, what I hope is a fair assessment of the army workout style routines I have used.

This is my unadulterated account of my experiences using the Back to The Basics Fitness Program DVD . It has been working for me so here are my thoughts on the system.  Check it out here.

To give my review some context, I’ll share some background with you. I had become a bit complacent when it came to exercise, and then suddenly I am in my Forties, with a bit of a belly, and feeling rather unfit and tired. I have never been one for gyms – you pay the fees and then the only pounds you lose are the ones leaving your bank account. As for the latest fitness gadgets and fads I see on shopping channels, well don’t go there. No, I was looking for something that I could do at home, or in the park, an exercise routine that relied on simple, basic exercises.

It was then I suddenly began to realise there were a lot of military fitness boot camps cropping up, and it dawned on me, that the army have been training raw recruits for years, turning them into personnel at the peak of their physical fitness. All of this achieved without fancy gym equipment. If anyone knows how to get you fit then it is the army. So I started researching the whole area of military workouts, from Army workouts to full on Navy SEAL Workouts.

In the end, I discovered the Back to The Basics Fitness Program, which basically laid out the basic military workouts, exercises and plans, in an easy, and digestible form.  And I was set. I am very much a process guy, and the simple way the Military Style Workouts are laid out and explained, in simple straightforward manner is what appealed to me.

Don’t get me wrong, you still have to be motivated, put in the effort, and be your own drill master, but with the right application I have begun to feel fitter, and stronger. I have already moved up to the next level.

Depending on your fitness level you may find starting the programme a bind, but once you start you’ll find a Military Workout addictive – and soon build all round core strength and stamina, hopefully improving your self-confidence, and spurring you on.

It won’t find the time for you, and you still need the motivation – but as an all round fitness routine to build core strength, stamina and all round fitness it is very good, and the course does suit a range of fitness levels, so you can progress at your own rate.

I hope you enjoyed my review and if you think it is for you, then I recommend you take a look.

They offer outdoor fitness to a wide range of fitness levels and abilities – and are open to all.  Popular with men and women, there is bound to be a military workout or army workout boot camps near you.

But what do they consist of?
When exercising it is important to keep some variety in your routines. The fantastic thing about Boot Camp Fitness classes are that every class is different. Sometimes they may just consist of an hour of sit-ups or push-ups, or is may only be a 10K run. The classes are usually run by ex-military types and can be really inspiring. As the instructors tend to come from a military background they know all about motivation and they can really help you push your limits. Often you don’t get this in a gym, especially if you are there on your own. In addition working in a group creates a sense of fun, and it feels less of a chore, while also being quite competitive. A little bit of competitiveness can suit some people, and motivate them to try harder.
