‘There is no one perfect session. It’s about variety. Take a step back and look at things a month at a time.’
Welcome to episode 3!
In this episode we dive into how we plan the sessions that we have used at our camps and then share with you on our sites.
We aim to pull back the curtain on the decisions we make and the process we use to stay on top of planning.
You’ll find out all about:
- How Kyle and Dale plan their weeks differently
- Why Kyle looks at his workouts and mix of variation a month at a time
- Why Dale has chosen Monday to be Circuits, Wednesday to be Boxing, Thursday to be Games and Challenges and Saturday to be a combination workout with his bootcamps
- How Kyle scaled the difficulty of his sessions to reinforce technique while still giving great workouts
- Why Dale plans all of his workouts with 3 sections. Hint: It’s got to do with client retention.
- Why Kyle does longer warm ups than Dale and why Dale always includes a finisher/game at the end of his workouts
- How to plan sessions for different fitness levels and abilities so that everyone leaves having had a great workout
- What we do when we get odd numbers (especially in boxing workouts)
- What to do when it’s wet and you can’t do the workout you planned
We also get a bit side tracked in one part on a really important topic. That is your Game Face, or how you show up to each session. Dale shares with us how important this has been for him in turning his bootcamp into a thriving community.
Dale shares a great tip on how he uses his iPad as a giant timer so that he can stay hands free and spend more time coaching clients.
