I am starting an outdoor bootcamp in my neighborhood and will like to attrack the runnners. I don’ t run, and other than knowing the cross training benefits, strenght training for legs with focus on power, the weakness of the glutes and hamstrings I will like to hear from someone who has can talk from personal experience.
Everything that has been said already is key. I am a trainer and I will be running my first Full Marathon at the end of the month. Doing some kind of boot class camp is a good way to spice things up for runners. A lot of times just running all the time isn’t as fun. So make all the stuff that has already been said sound FUN!
Also, if you can encourage them to come right after a run then your selling point could be targeted at their “Final Kick”. In other words the last 6 miles of a marathon are said to be the hardest, or that final sprint in a 5k can be really tough. But if they are doing some high intensity training right after a training run it will help them through those last few miles and that last little sprint. This is can be an especially big seller for runners who never do sprint workouts.
