We train for life
It has always been my philosophy that you should be well rounded in your approach to fitness. For my own personal fitness level, I have certain benchmarks I always want to be able to maintain.
This has influenced the way I train my boot camp clients as well. I want them to be able to go out and work in the yard all day, do a Warrior Dash, play with their kids at Shakala and not end up in the ER, go roller skating and not end up crippled the next day, and pretty much do whatever physical activity they want to do.
For instance, two ladies who attend the 530am class did exactly what I am talking about this weekend. We will call these two ladies, Tammy and Beth, mainly because that is their names.
Neither Tammy nor Beth are runners. And if you asked them, they would tell you they never run. But they are at boot camp almost every day at 530am, 5 days a week.
This weekend a few of us went to New Orleans for a race. Tammy ran the entire 10k without stopping and Beth ran a half marathon! Running 6.2 miles (Tammy) and 13.1 miles (Beth) without any specific running training is really impressive.
Don't pigeonhole yourself training just one way! Work on strength, speed, flexibility, endurance, and agility. Keep things interesting, keep your workouts fresh, and do workouts that challenge and excite you.
Train so you can be strong enough and fit enough to handle whatever life throws at you.
PS-When you train this way, you will also find that you will lose weight, inches, and body fat along the way
