Patrons report to basic-training boot-camp courses up to five days a week for an ever-shifting blend of cardio and strength drills. The military-style workouts necessitate teamwork, demanding that students team up to transport heavy gear, run through obstacle courses, and execute classic calisthenics. The easier beginner classes help students safely learn the exercises before entering the normal classes. Click here for class locations and times (Make sure to adjust your location to Ottawa).
Ottawa Fitness Boot Camp-Soldiers of Fitness
Canadian soldiers Karth Sahadevan and Colin Reid founded Ottawa Fitness Boot Camp-Soldiers of Fitness in 2004, drawing from their military training to craft authentic boot-camp programs for the average citizen. Their routines mandate that students work together to conquer drills, bolstering a communal spirit through navigating obstacle courses and banding together to transport heavy objects such as a snoozing sumo wrestler. Though the classes embody the intense physical-training tactics of the military, instructors do not single out campers by barking orders at them. Instead, a positive atmosphere of support and accountability fuels each session, and a ratio of one teacher per 10 students ensures personalized encouragement. Even those 50 and older can reach their fitness goals by enrolling in Veterans boot-camp classes, which focus on improving flexibility, strengthening muscles and joints, and engaging in cardio conditioning—all while minimizing impact on joints and tendons. This vigorous yet uplifting approach has earned Soldiers of Fitness several shout-outs in the press, as well as the loyalty of clients who return for increasingly challenging workouts.
