The first time he saw a promotional poster about ActiveSG’s Sgt Ken Parent-Child bootcamp in his ActiveSG gym, David Ling thought nothing about it.

Equipment-less indoor and outdoor boot camps continue to appear on many club schedules. Among the reasons they attract so many participants are their ease of set-up, ability to accommodate various fitness levels and constantly changing exercises, which increase the fun and reduce the likelihood of boredom. If you’re thinking about starting a boot camp class, or if you feel your boot camp classes could use a little inspiration, here are some great tips from the best in the business.

“ Motivation; the key thing that guided me. Your class also taught me about fitness and how it can improve not only my body but also the way I think. I also was taught the meaning of resilience. Optimism was a huge concept you got through my head. Strength of character was the main thing I focused on.- Deschun, age 17
