I design a lot of team building workouts.
When I opened my first bootcamp back in 2008, I promoted it as the place to go for a fun and effective team based workout. People loved it and I managed to grow my clientele to over 125 members.
Mainly through word of mouth.
Team building workouts are fantastic for building trust, forging friendships fast & having fun. I have found it to be the ultimate way of creating a loyal community of dedicated members.
Here’s a cool Bootcamp idea taken from The Workout Design Elite (free for 14 days)
Copy & paste this workout and add it to your collection of team building workouts.
Title: Forfeit Frenzy
Equipment: 6 Markers
Time: 20 Minutes
Aim: Win as many games as possible as a team
Method: Lay out the fitness markers as shown then split the group in to 2 teams. You require team names.
Round 1: Players are working individually to score points for their team.
Step 1: Complete 10 burpees then sprint through the 2 markers opposite and back to your team base. As you sprint through the 2 markers, the instructor will mark 1 point for your team.
Players repeat step 1 for 5 minutes in the attempt to score as many points as they can. The team with the highest combined score wins a point and the losing team face a forfeit.
Round 2, 3 & 4: Same as round 1, just change the exercise for each round. The team with the most games won gets to choose a forfeit for the losing team.
