This program is specifically for the individual and their needs and desires as an athlete.

Wolfe Pack Boot Camp

Boot camps classes are designed to help participants lose weight, develop and tone major muscle groups, as well as to improve overall physical stamina.

This Boot Camp uses interval training methods and conditioning drills found in many professional sports. Performed properly, these routines can expend up to 1,000 calories per hour. As a whole body activity, these routines develop the shoulders, upper back, lats, delts, biceps, triceps, forearms, legs, hips, gluts, and abs (along with other muscles you didn't know you had until starting this Boot Camp program!)

Generally, these high intensity interval routines last between 2-12 minutes each. Throughout camp, participants will perform both muscular and aerobic strengthening exercises, as well as fundamental speed and agility drills. For example, campers will strike oversize tires with sledge hammers, work Battle Ropes, push Dog Sleds, run agility ladders, strike heavy bags, jump rope, work medicine balls, and save puppies!

Campers who complete 1,000 rounds of training earn a Boot Camp t-shirt. Each class is worth 25 rounds, except for Tuesdays, which are better known as Torture Tuesdays! Those days are worth 50 rounds each! To protect their hands during class, campers should wear weight lifting gloves or 180 inch boxing hand wraps.

Body Composition Testing — Body Composition consists of fat, bone, water and muscle in human bodies. Because muscular tissue takes up less space in our body than fat tissue, our body composition, as well as our weight, determines leanness. Two people of same sex and body weight may look completely different from each other because they have a different body composition. Y staff will use skin fold calipers to determine your body composition. By appointment only.
