I spent some time with Paul from BurnIt Bootcamp recently and hoped they could explain to me the new phenomenon that has been sweeping the globe for the last decade, fitness bootcamps have taken their lead from the Military bootcamps and the public are responding well. according to Paul people need to entrust their health goals to someone else. They have been let down by gyms who will write a program for them and then just leave them to their own devices, A new start exerciser need nurtured and encouraged into the exercise habit.
The world's longest running military inspired boot camp fitness program, ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP ™, was founded in Australia in 1991 by former Royal Australian Army infantry soldier, 'Chief' Brabon. The ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP ™ program has since grown into the world's most successful military fitness program, with over 50 licensed / franchised programs across three continents (Australasia, Asia, North America).
Boot camps provide social support for those taking part. This provides a different environment for those exercisers who get bored in a gym and so find it hard to develop a habit of exercise. Participants make friends and socialize as they exercise, although how strict the trainers or drill instructors in charge can be will depend on the company running the camp. Members of fitness boot camps are usually tested for fitness on Day 1 and then retested at the end of the camp, which usually runs for between 4-6 weeks.
Military bootcamps are almost completely useless for the general public. When a recruit joins the army they are pre screened to be at their peak health. They go in to it 100%, no desk work the next morning, no taking the kids to a birthday party straight after the bootcamp. So to try and run a military bootcamp in the general public is not just a waste of your time but potentially dangerous. However, the bootcamp themed fitness camp has been extremely popular in the US for some time now, with Australia and Dubai now over run with them. People are looking to be pushed, they do not trust themselves to work hard enough to reach their goals and so are happy to pay for someone to take that responsibility for them. Burn It have developed a unique training system that takes the best elements of bootcamp, adds in the latest understanding of motivational psychology and educates its users in how to plan a successful food diet. Unlike many weight loss clubs, Burn it looks to empower the individual in taking better care of themselves, not to use us as a crutch, with our users getting results in a comparable time frame but safe and sustainable. Rather than this working against us we have found that our users become more loyal to our system and continue to use Bootcamps as a way of keeping fit.

Diet and Nutrition advice not instruction
If I say to you do not think of a pink tree, the first thing your mind does is think of a pink tree, so if when dieticians say, whatever you do do not eat chocolate cake, all you are going to do is crave chocolate cake. Instead if they tell them, eat chocolate cake if you want to, no problem, if you do though this is how many calories you will gain and this is how long it will take you to burn that off, then the choice is theirs, they have ownership over that decision. I took part in an Bootcamp program and I have to say, apart from hurting for two days, I really rather enjoyed it. I was paired up with someone my own fitness level and after it all he felt like an old army comrade who had helped me conquer a massive accomplishment. I think in a modern society, where we are happy to outsource our ironing, house cleaning and even dog walking, it makes sense that we should entrust our health goals to someone who is trained to help us achieve them.
