Question Boot Camp Class?

So my gym is now offering a free bootcamp class for free on Monday's and Wednesday's. Has anyone ever taken one of these? I'm a little nervous because I am really NOT in shape. What do these entail and should I wait until I am in better shape?

You know I think all exercise is beneficial. If nothing else it will give you an idea of where you are.

Last January I was taking a body pump class, but could not lie down on the step to do some of the moves because I was too big and too out of shape. After I stayed in that class for a while, I quit and then went to the treadmill and elliptical for a few months along with my diet.

In August I started a kettlebell class and felt very out of shape for that. Now I am getting up and down on the floor all the time. in the Kettlebell classes. Do I do it as good as most everyone else in the class? Probably not, but I do way way better than I did last January - so I say start with something and give it a good shot, and then if you don't like it - move to something else.

In a year you will be way more mobile and able to do everything if that is even a problem for you.

Buddha Belly - Thank you! I'm definitely going to be trying it tonight I've really been wanting to take classes and my gym doesn't offer much but I am pretty excited about the free factor.

Update: I tried it... Let's just say my entire body is sore today.

Totally worth it, would be so much more enjoyable if I were in much better shape... then again... that's kind of the purpose of the class. lol

Congrats! I am experiencing a similar dilemma as you. My gym offers a good amount of classes and I saw the step aerobics class today and was thinking it would be fun to try but I feel nervous to go! I know its not true but I feel like everyone in there is advanced and used to it (even though there are overweight people in the class too) I just would feel so embarrassed to go and have to take breaks while everyone keeps going

When I went to bootcamp, i was the largest person participating. My trainers offered alternate moves. Additionally, only push it as far as YOU can go. You don't have to keep up with the class move for move. I attended bootcamp with the same group of 'guys' for about 8 months before I slipped and fell at the office. I miss the comradery from the entire experience. I do better with someone telling me what to do for an hour than feeling lost at the gym! have fun!

Ive never done one, but it sounds interesting and might be fun, don't let fear stop you from trying it. You can always slow it down in any class you take no one is going to think bad of you or reprimand you over it, that's for certain.
