Exercise Bootcamp: Can You Survive?
Have you ever considered taking one of those boot camp classes?

These classes can seem intimidating, especially since you're doing exercises similar to those in military training.

So, do you have what it takes to fit in?

Another thing to consider is what type of boot camp class is best for you.

For instance, do you want an instructor that yells at you or one that supports and helps you through a very tough workout?

Tough love isn't for everyone, so you may prefer someone who can motivate you and encourage you at the same time.

Fitness level is also important.

How can you tell, before you jump into the fray, if you can handle a class this tough?

What steps do you need to take to be ready for a military-style, old-school workout?

Grace Desimone, Editor of ACSMs Reserouces for the Group Fitness Instructor, helps you decide if you can handle the heat.
