Many people join boot camps and group activities in a natural environment, as this gives an opportunity to perform well, and the enthusiasm of a group is motivational too. It has a positive effect on the person, and one tends to perform even better than one’s own capacity. The Boot Camps are conducted and organized by fitness coaches, and fitness enthusiasts, and with a proper planning and schedule that they plan for their group participants. Without equipment, and in the lap of nature, the business of BOOT CAMPS has grown to a phenomenal level. But it does require extreme discipline and commitment both on the part of the organizer and the participant.
AIRTEL/SUPER SIKH RUN/ASICS and so many well known brands organize marathons and even the preparation camps for the ones who are keen to run. These have taken the shape of huge sponsored events, and have lacs of people participating. But mostly, the participants have personal goals, whether it is 5 KM RUN, 10 KMS, OR 21 KMS.
