Fitness enthusiasts across America are taking part in the latest evolution of exercise, — bootcamp style gyms and classes. Generally a group session, lasting approximately an hour and led by a professional trainer, those who struggle to achieve fitness goals on their own are finding themselves quickly dropping those unwanted love handles and gaining muscle mass through these intense workout programs
Based on military bootcamp regimented exercise, certainly not in quantity but in quality and intensity, within the one hour fitness session, participants can burn as many as one thousand calories.
“Some people, especially those just beginning a fitness plan, can be intimidated by the prospect of a 'bootcamp' fitness regiment,” commented Manning Sumner, celebrity trainer and founder of Miami's number one bootcamp gym, Legacy Fit. “But, rest assured that we address each fitness level and encourage exercise progression and rest between workouts. To optimize your results, the body has to have rest after any kind of exercise.”
One of the contributing factors of bootcamp fitness that has led to its popularity nationwide is the incorporation of group sessions. Some may remember the success of group aerobic exercise in the 70's and 80's. Similarly, bootcamp classes instill the sense of community and teamwork.
“Partner Interval Training, or PIT, is our way of building a relationship between workout partners,” Sumner explained. “By creating a team environment, our members become vested in one another's success in the program and become more self-motivated and driven to achieve the most that they can.”
Achieving the most possible, being the best one can be, is the philosophy on which Legacy Fit is based and is the subject of the lifestyle guide, “No Days OFF” penned by Sumner in 2012.
“It's not about working out every day,” continued the entrepreneurial author. “My goal by writing 'NDO' is to make a difference in everyone's lives, whether they are members of Legacy Fit or not. I want to influence the world to be healthier, both mentally and physically.”
Know from coast to coast as the “NDO Movement”, the popularity of the book has Sumner's aspirations to change the world not completely out of reach. The “movement” has touched and influenced A-list celebrities in the entertainment industry as well as popular professional athletes from the NFL, NBA and more.
“'No Days OFF' is a guide to making the most of life, being the very best you that you can be. Don't take a day off from that,” Sumner continued. “Whether you're relaxing on the beach, doing your job or in a bootcamp class, do the very best you can at everything you do.”
Due to the exponential growth of the Miami gym location and the bootcamp fitness trend spreading quickly across the country, Sumner has extended franchising opportunities of Legacy Fit, which was named among the top ten franchise opportunities in the country by Entrepreneur Magazine in 2014.
The first of many Legacy Fit franchises is slated to open in Summerville, SC in November of this year.
