When I was running bootcamps last summer, I was always looking for bootcamp workouts .
One guy that had a lot of them, many of them I used in my bootcamps, is Craig Ballantyne.
Craig was generous enough to do an interview and share a bunch of his bootcamp workout secrets with you.
Before I get to the interview. Let me give you a little background on Craig.
Craig is a trainer in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. (We won’t hold that against him.)
Craig ran bootcamps in community centers.
He found that he had access to very minimal equipment.
Since he had limited equipment he began putting together bootcamp workouts with minimal equipment and in many cases just focused on bodyweight exercises.
His success lead him to showing other trainers how to do these types of workouts without having to worry about driving equipment around town or carrying boxes of equipment to the park.
Now other fitness profesionals have been using his bootcamp workoutsto get their bootcampers results.
Now to the interview.
5 Bootcamp Mistakes Fitness Professionals Make
In the interview, Craig will:
– Reveal the 5 Bootcamp Mistakes Fitness Professionals Make
– What to do about cardio in your bootcamps
– Lets us know who Craig Ballantyne is!
– Shares his experience leading bootcamps
I liked how Craig talked about getting bootcampers to do laps as one of the mistakes fitness professionals do when running bootcamps.
It was something that I did. Opps.
Below is part two of the interview with Craig.
How to Design a Bootcamp Workout
In the interview, Craig will explain:
– How to Design a Bootcamp Workout
– What are Done-for-you Bootcamp Workouts
– What is Missing in Many Bootcamp Workouts
– How frequent to do the same bootcamp workout

I liked Craig’s Number 1 tip on designing a bootcamp workout: BRING THE ENGERY.
That is so true. Bootcampers are all there for their own reasons, but you have to keep them motivated, energized and reaching past their limits.
I hope you enjoyed the interview.
I enjoy doing them and bringing them to you.
