Boot Camp Is Best Weight Loss Program – According to Science

If you’re looking to get in shape, lose weight and be healthier overall, boot camp workouts are most effective, according to science.  During a recent study, the American Council on Exercise (ACE) looked into the effectiveness of different workouts for weight loss and strength and found boot camp to be one of the best group exercise options.

Researchers measured oxygen consumption, caloric burn, and heart rate of six men and six women, all between the ages of 19 and 29, during a 40 minute boot camp workout.  The study highlighted key benefits of boot camp including:

  • Weight loss: Participants burned an average of 7.8 calories every minute.  Because these workouts also incorporate strength training, you can burn more calories and see greater change in body composition (fat to lean muscle ratio).
  • HIIT Effect- the High Intensity Interval Training of boot camp is proven to help you both lose weight and build muscle.
  • Functional training- Boot camps that involve functional training like body weight movements help train your body to get through your daily activity with greater ease and strength.
