Tampa CrossBoot's trainers invite students of all body types, skill levels, and ages to take control of their health through positive, team-centric outdoor workout camps. During classes, pupils employ a mix of cross-training and boot-camp techniques to boost speed, balance, functional strength, and agility, all the skills needed to become the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Workouts take place in nearby parks and green spaces so exercisers can breathe in fresh air as they burn off excess calories. Regimens allow participants to train at their own paces, scaling upward in difficulty as they introduce their muscles and cardiovascular systems to new, healthy challenges.
At Boot Camp With A Cause, classes don't just focus on the physical. Five key elements—mindset, nutrition, supplementation, strength training, and cardio conditioning—inform the programs at the workout haven. This holistic approach helps members adjust their perspective on health as they lose pounds and tone limbs to resemble their favorite Greek statues. The fitness organization also focuses on the community, regularly donating to local charities and holding occasional free Saturday boot camps in which students bring blankets, food, and clothing for those in need.
