Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 12, 2006

By the time the sun rises on October 30th, participants of the New Miami Fitness Boot Camp (www. MiamiFitnessBootCamp. com) will be ready to hit the showers.

They’ve stretched, strained and sweated since 5:30 a. m., and can count themselves 1,000 calories lighter of everyone else who decided to sleep in. Fitness boot camps are fast becoming the latest craze in the health-conscious modern world. More and more people prefer fitness boot camps to exercising in the gyms or at home. Fitness boot camps provide a power-packed workout in the span of an hour. It is this economical usage of time that drives people to fitness boot camps. These boot camps may meet several times a week, for an hour's duration each.

"We provide a safe and effective environment where people can reach their goals for nutrition, fitness and body transformation” said camp director Rafael Moret. "We do a lot of different things really fast” .We are also considering a lunch time course. Classes begin with a simple warm-up exercise like squatting or sit-ups or walking on the treadmill. Usually people perform these exercises in groups and then alternate their exercises. As the class progresses, the exercises become more and more difficult. There is just no letting go till the class is complete.

Many people who join such fitness boot camps find it difficult at first. But when they realize the benefits and the results, they change their minds quickly. Customers - who flock to the facility for a unique combination of calisthenics, cardio, and community, like that one day might include a run around the lake, an obstacle course and some push-ups.

The next could include Pilates, specialized yoga and strength.. The 6 week long training sessions are in the spirit of military boot camps with added extras like safety and nutrition training and instructors who won’t call a client or trainee any names.

“Every new client knows that boot camp is time to push your body to the limits” says Rafael. "(People enjoy) the open, free feeling of working out outdoors. "Typically people work 9 to 5 in an office. They’re confined all day."

Everyone is welcome and the boot camp attracts people of all ages, occupations and fitness levels. Donna J, 32 of Miami, started in September when she wanted to jumpstart her fitness routine and get rid of some excess weight. She worked out regularly, but had not been getting the result she wanted. The boot camp did the trick. "I was going to a health club and using the treadmill and elliptical machines, doing classes" Donna said. "I enjoyed the fact that this is outside and in a group. It seems to push me more."

The 6 week sessions at The Miami Fitness Boot Camp cost $396.. Log on to www. MiamiFitnessBootCamp. com for more information.
