I co-founded a bootcamp in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia in early 2010. During that time we created an awesome community of over 80 regular clients. We did mud runs, BBQ breakfasts and, of course, awesome workouts over 10 sessions a week.
Early on I realised that 6 station, 1 minute per station circuits were not going to cut it every workout. I looked for inspiration online but at that time most group fitness resources just looked like PT sessions. I felt that group fitness should be different. There should be games and team challenges mixed in with great workouts. So I started focusing on creating that in my own workouts. I tested all kinds of workouts and new ideas to see what would work and what didn’t. During that time I started sharing them online on a site I created called Bootcamp Ideas.
In 2014 I stopped training my bootcamp to focus on turning Bootcamp Ideas into an amazing resource for trainers. Now with BootCraft I hope to inspire trainers to come up with great workouts for their own sessions and share not only my own workouts, but amazing workouts from trainers based all around the world.
