The BarraFit BootCamp class structure is built by 3 classes on a week cycle. Each one of the classes differ in nature but follow a similar structure: warm up followed by 3 blocks of approximately 10 minutes. Each one of the blocks is built by smaller rounds of Cardio Exercises, Strength Exercices and Combat Exercices, always on that sequence.
Offering 3 different classes per week make the camp more exciting and the similar structure removes the complexity of teaching a very different class all the time.
The overall class structure of the BarraFit BootCamp
- Earlier in the week, you will instruct Class A. On this class students practice all drills and exercises fro their white marks facing the instructor. We call this class stationary because student are static and spend almost the entire class on the same spot;
- In the middle of the week, you will instruct class B. On this class students take turns on 4 different stations that run at the same time. Whenever the time is up for the exercice students switch stations. This class is called circuit because the students are moving from one station to the other;
- At the end of the week, you will instruct a game class. with the exception of the warm up phase 1 and the cool down, all rounds are built by games. moderate intensity game are use for cardio, high intensity games are used for strength and fighting games are used for combat.
Here is a brief video explaining the overall class structure o the BarraFit BootCamp
Now that you understand the overall structure, let's take a look at each separate class.
BarraFit BootCamp Class A: Stationary Workout
As you can see on the table below, this 60 minutes class is built by a generic warm up, a class specific warm up, 3 identical blocks and a cool down. The faster they learn, the more they can do. Keep in mind that the exercices are just a general description. Feel free to adapt it and innovate with your own variations of exercices. We provide exemples in videos.
BarraFit BootCamp Class B: Circuit Workout
As you can see on the table below, this 60 minutes class is built by a generic warm up, a class specific warm up, 3 identical blocks and a cool down. The difference here is that not all the students are doing the same exercise at the same time. You will split the group in 4 teams and each team will be doing one specific exercise. Every minute they switch station and by the end of the 4 minutes round they all have done all 4 exercices.
BarraFit BootCamp Class C: Games Workout
As you can see on the table below, this 60 minutes class is built by a generic warm up, a class specific warm up, 3 different game work outs and a cool down. Keep in mind that the games are just a suggestions. Feel free to adapt it and innovate with your own variations of exercices. We provide examples in videos.
