We know what you’re thinking. Fitness camps are designed for people who are dangerously obese and need serious intervention to get them back on the right track. That’s a common misconception, but it’s actually not true. It turns out, people of various weights and fitness levels attend fitness camps every year. Some even visit multiple times a year. When it comes to making real lifestyle changes, people are realizing fitness camps are the perfect setting to jumpstart or continue achieving their fitness goals. Here are five reasons everyday people just like you are visiting fitness camps:
1. YOU HAVE A HEALTH SCARE
It happens to many of us. We let unhealthy habits get away from us, we become complacent, and the next thing you know you’re getting winded just climbing a flight of stairs. You dread your next physical with your doctor. Then he or she gives you the news that you were expecting yet didn’t want to hear – you’ve got to make some lifestyle changes, and fast. A health scare is the greatest motivator to cutting bad eating and exercise habits for good. If you have recently received a warning from your doctor regarding your health, fear not. A fitness camp is the ideal environment to safely restore your health and improve your medical tests.
2. YOU STEP ON THE SCALE AND YOU ARE SURPRISED BY THE NUMBER YOU SEE
We all have this threshold in our minds of what we should weigh. And it is surprisingly easy to miss the fact that you’re gaining weight because it happens so gradually. But one day, you notice your favorite pants are a little harder to button, or you’re forced to move up to the next hole in your belt. Maybe your eating habits haven’t been so great lately. With the guided environment of a fitness camp, you can get back on track in as little as 1-2 weeks!
3. ALL YOUR FRIENDS ARE GETTING FIT
Peer pressure isn’t usually a good thing, but when it comes to your health, why not let it motivate you? The group mindset can be influential in how we look, how we behave, what we say, etc. If your friends are working on getting healthier, they may look to the friend group for support (or maybe to even brag a little about the weight they’re losing.) It can be tough to feel like you’re being “left behind” by your friends. You meet up for a night out together and you see it in the pictures taken. Everyone looks so fit. How can you catch up with them? Perhaps suggest attending a fitness camp together with your friends. Powering through the exercise every day together can be a great motivator to push yourself and you can keep each other accountable once you return home.
4. YOU HAVE A SPECIAL EVENT COMING UP AND YOU WANT TO FEEL GREAT
Two events that inspire people to lose weight are high school reunions and weddings. At high school reunions, you’re seeing your former classmates for the first time in 10 years. Maybe you haven’t prioritized your health the last few years and don’t feel like your healthiest and best self, and you’re feeling insecure about going. Weddings carry an even greater appearance stress factor. You bought an expensive dress that you must fit into. A photographer will capture images of you that will hang in your house as well as those of your loved ones for many years to come (no pressure!) A fitness camp is ideal for boosting weight loss and losing immediate inches off your body. Quick results will make sure you are event-ready and boost your confidence as well!
5. YOU HAD A BABY (OR MAYBE MORE THAN ONE)
Babies are adorable but (as mothers worldwide can attest to) the associated weight gain can be frustrating. For many moms, it can be incredibly difficult to get back to your pre-baby weight, especially if one little bundle of joy eventually turns into two, and so on, and so forth. As one prominent celebrity mom said recently, “It just seems like each additional child leaves behind a new layer of stubborn bodyweight that digs in and is determined to stay!” Likewise, finding the time to work out can be next to impossible.
A fitness camp will give you the structure you need to stay focused on your own health and well-being while giving your body the fitness boost it needs to get back on track. You’ll return home with the tools you need to be a healthy, active, high-energy Mama, and your kids will benefit from you being your best self! Maybe even invite fellow mom friends with you for a few weight loss challenge weeks to stay motivated as a group!
