That’s cool to see how Bootcamp Finishers exploded my business because I solely relied on referrals for bringing those boot campers in.
Hey, this is Rick Kaselj from exercisesforinjuries.com.
I’m down here in Las Vegas (again) for a fitness mastermind meeting, and I ran into Mike Whitfield (again).
While in Vegas and at other seminars I attend, I interview other experts.
Mike is an expert in “Finishers.”
What Mike will talk about is an issue he had when it came to running his Bootcamp.
So if you are a Bootcamp owner, watch the video. He has got some great information to help you with your Bootcamp.
How Bootcamp Finishers Can Make Your Clients Warriors
Thanks a lot, Rick. As Rick said, I was running Bootcamps and trying to figure out when to beat Bootcamp boredom.
And the thing I used in my boot camps to help beat Bootcamp boredom was finishers; I’m a finishers guy.
I was using those with my one-on-one clients, and they loved it, but I was not translating that into Bootcamps, so I had to figure out a way to use finishers with my Bootcamps.
What I did is I took the finishers that I used with my one-on-one clients to figure out how to integrate them into my Bootcamps and make them into something I can use in a Bootcamp setting.
That’s how Bootcamp Finishers was born.
Now the excellent way of doing that is the density method, which my boot campers love.
This is when you set a certain amount of time, usually pretty short, because it is a finisher in the neighborhood of 3-5 minutes.
So you have that set time, and either have a superset or a circuit of 3 exercises.
And I like to play with the sets and reps schemes because that brings a new dynamic to the workout.
You get the boot campers addicted to working out and getting results, and that’s what it is all about because that brings them back.
You have a circuit that you have to do in 3-5 minutes, and I like to do it with fewer reps.
An Example of a Bootcamp Finisher is:
- elbow swings for five reps
- then you drop down into a burpee for, let’s say, three reps
- then you do push-ups for five reps
What you do is go through that circuit as many times as possible in 3-5 minutes.
Now, all campers can go through their own pace because the rest period is really up to them.
They can take a break when needed and hop back right in.
So that’s how I’ve used Bootcamp finishers with my Bootcamps.
And that’s why I had to move my Bootcamps. I had a small suite next to the gym I was training at, and I moved up to the high school and the street. I had 20 campers at 6 a.m. during summer; the kicker was most of those teachers.
That’s the synopsis of how the Bootcamp finishers were born and how they can help you.
Rick Kaselj: Awesome. Thank you very much, Mike. So where can people get more information on you?
Mike Whitfield: You can go here, and that’s where you’ll get the Bootcamp finishers done for you right then and there.
