Boot Camps "Kick Your Butt"
I see many people running to these "boot camps" in order to get "instantly fit and slim".
Somehow the thought of the word "instantly" coupled with "fit" and "slim" is a bit of an oxymoron. There really is no way to become fit or drastically lose weight overnight. I think that's what some of these boot camp-type facilities try to sell.
Additionally, I believe it can pose a health risk to jump into a highly intense training program without some preparation.
This being said, the Kosamas of the world have their place in fitness. I know many people who supplement their routine with visits to a boot camp-type workout each week. This certainly makes sense. An intense, fast-paced aerobic workout is a great way to mix things up in your routine.
