I am starting a new, more vigorous fitness program to combat post-hysterectomy body fat. It is a bootcamp available for all ages, and I expect I will be above the typical age as a new participant. I dont necessarily have a lot of extra weight (I am 5.5 and weigh 134 lbs) however, I am unfit and my waist measurement and BMI are well out of bounds. I do not do much weight training, and my trainer will incorporate that to my regimen. I expect to have soreness and fatigue. How do I know what I am capable of without getting hurt? I dont have an athletic history, most of my current exercise program is cardio based. Thanks for your input.
I would talk to the bootcamp instructor prior to joining and find out what their program demands and what they will do when it comes to modifications
If it is a “canned” bootcamp where the trainer has a list of drills and can’t improvise for you I would not join.
If you think the bootcamp leader is competent, is certified with a Nationally Accredited Certification~Ask to see it, has a Cert in CPR and has at least 8 years of experience and you feel confident with him or her then go for it.
Never feel ashamed to ask for an alternative and always know that everyone should be encouraged to work within their own capacity
