Mary Before Fit Fun Bootcamp

I know there are people from all over the world who read this, but for those of us in the Midwest United States, it has finally gotten warm—with highs getting into the 80’s!  With summer nearing, getting workouts in outside is very desirable.  After a long winter, the fresh air and bright sun are all we need to lift our spirits and brighten our day.

Fit Fun Bootcamps always get very popular in the summer because people just don’t want to be inside any longer.  Today I want to share with you some great exercises you can do outside with a medicine ball.  Medicine balls are one of the most popular tools I use to train my clients because they are very simple, inexpensive ($20-$50 depending on weight), and easy to transport.

Mary after 6 months of Fit Fun BootcampMary has lost a couple of jean sizes and, at the age of 40, is in the best shape of her life.  I am very proud of everything she has done and the extreme intensity she brings to each workout.  She definitely deserves the results.

Please note that this video was filmed a couple of weeks ago.  We have bootcamp every Saturday at 8 AM at Elver Park, which is free for current bootcampers and a $10 drop in for everyone else.  We will be doing another big kickoff in a couple of weeks because the weather was very bad the first time around.

Here is the list of exercises we did with the medicine balls.

-2 ball squats

-2 ball squat jumps

-2 ball high knee running

-Sit-up ball toss

-Med ball slamdowns

What is your favorite medicine ball workout?
