No weights no machines just intense outdoor training in central park. Working out should always be fun, challenging, and get you pumped. The Central Park Boot Camp is a high intensity training program that will kick your butt each and every time.

The drills and exercises done are designed to strengthen, lengthen and tone all of your major areas especially the butt, legs, midsections and arms. You will always be sore each and every time. Our legs and ab workouts are unbeatable and no other program will leave your buns struggling to sit on the toilet. Come join us any time for a workout that will build your body, strengthen your mind, and release the stress in your life.
How the Central Park Boot Camp started
Do You want a fitter, stronger, healthier and more attractive body? Of course you do that’s why I (Gabe) created this outdoor training program. I enjoy working with people who are on a mission to change their bodies and stay strong because I am also on that mission. I began training outdoors as a teen when I did not have a gym membership and got into the best shape of my life simply by performing all kinds of fun body weight, bar, and boot camp style workouts. Eventually I joined a gym and became a personal trainer but it was not the same as the outdoors. After a few satisfactory years of working as a slave in the fitness industry I quit my gym job and started personal training outdoors in 2010. That was the best decision I ever made and I have had a blast thus far with the Central Park Boot Camp.
Why join the Central Park Boot Camp?
Outdoor training provides the ultimate variety because you are not limited to the tools you have in the gym, you are limited to the natural environment and your imagination. This creates an open mind to the kinds of exercises that will be performed during the workout. I cant tell you how many times I am in a gym feeling lazy so I just choose a machine or exercise I am comfortable with and mindlessly perform repetitions with minimal results. The body does not respond to comfort and monogamy, it responds to variety, challenge, focus and intensity. This outdoor training program is for individuals who desire that variety and sense of fun while working out. Do you want to spend your time in a iron dungeon playing with boring machines and complicated weights? or would you rather spend an hour in Central Park kicking ass and having a blast?
What are the Boot Camp workouts like?
For a typical 6:30pm class we meet about 5-10 minutes before the start time of the boot camp. We head in to Central Park and get set up at exactly 6:30 and we do not wait. The warm up starts exactly at 6:40 and consists of dynamic stretching to warm the body for exercises. the full blown workout begins at 6:50 and consists of three to four exercise circuits usually consisting of three to four different exercises performed consecutively with no resting. A sample workout circuit would go like this…
You may think this workout is short but we get a lot of work done in 30 minutes before the cool down. If you are used to working out for an entire hour or more you will be amazed at how much more work you can get done in 30 minutes. Cool down starts at 720 and involves static relaxed stretching and yoga movements to increase your flexibility even further.
Once the workout is complete its margaritas and bagels!!!…I’m joking :-p. But seriously… only join us If you seriously want to see a fitter sexier you when you look in the mirror because results are guaranteed from this killer class.
What kind of classes are there?
We do all kinds of boot camp style workouts but what makes us different is the focus. Each workout is not simply a generic total body class there is a purpose to each workout weather its working the butt, destroying the abs, or building strong arms and shoulders. Our classes have variety unlike some boot camp programs that just make you do the same or similar workout each time you attend. There is no plateau because each workout is dramatically different from the next and is always intense.
Here are just a few of the classes we have going on this year:
- Butt Thighs and Abs – A class specifically shaping and sculpting the butt thighs and abs while at the same time burning tons of calories. Your butt will never be more sore from any other class I guarantee it!
- The 6 Pack Workout - You will learn the fine points in developing a strong and sexy mid section. Focusing on building a strong set of abs this class will get you to 6 pack status if you perform the exercises learned here within your other personal routines.
- Total Body Fat Loss - A seriously intense killer fat loss workout. If you think you have had an intense fat loss workout before than think again. You will sweat and burn so much more fat off from this class than any generic weight loss class in existence.
- Advanced Boot Camp - Are you an exercise enthusiast who is fit and just want to find a class that will actually kick your butt and not leave you feeling like you could have done much more? Or do you just love being put to the test? This is that class. We will take your cardio, strength, and stamina to a whole new level and you will be glad when we are done. Some people just enjoy being punished… This is that punishment ;-p
