Boot Camp in the Park FAQ

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
It doesn't matter how physically fit you are.  It doesn't matter how old you are.  This program is about getting you, your family, your friends, your neighbors--everyone you care about---up and moving.  If you are ready to make the commitment to wellness and becoming more physically active, "Boot Camp in The Park" is for you!  We also encourage you to bring your children.  

WHAT IS THE COST TO PARTICIPATE?

This is a FREE community program

WHEN IS THE PROGRAM OFFERED?
Every Saturday from 9am-10am beginning mid-march to late November (35 weeks) in the Park.  Virtual year round!!

Consider a walk, jog or run around beautiful Centennial Lake following Boot Camp in The Park.  If you decide to walk, jog or run the lake before the workout, most walkers would complete the loop on time if they start by 8am.  Joggers and runners would likely complete the loop if they started by 8:15am.  Our location is Corporate Pavilion H which can be accessed by turning onto Woodland Road off of 108 and taking an immediate left turn into the park.  We will post signage near the gate and on our website if the location should change.  Once you enter the park, just follow the Get Active Howard County signs.

WHAT IS THE GENERAL FORMAT FOR THE BOOT CAMP?  
Time:              8:45am - Free registration opens (Register by 7:55am)
                        8:55am - Orientation & Meet the trainer(s)
                        8:55am - Warm-up
                        9:00am - Exercise begins (modified to meet the needs of all fitness levels)
                        10:00am - Cool down and stretch  
                      
Every exercise and activity can be modified for those that prefer a slower paced workout and to accommodate all fitness levels. Just as important, the trainers are always ready to kick it up for participants who are up for the challenge.

WHERE DO WE MEET?
Location:         Centennial Park (108 South Entrance) --follow the Get Active Howard County signs once you enter the park.
                        We recommend that you confirm our location by clicking on the following link: http://wepromotehealth.org/updates.aspx

WHAT TO BRING?
We recommend that you bring a towel and/or exercise mat, water bottle (recommended)

WHEN DID THE PROGRAM BEGIN?
This program began in 2011.  The first training featured five professional trainers sharing expertise and enthusiasm in a station by station format.  Teams rotated through the stations learning new exercises, having fun and improving their fitness and form.    In 2011, participants of the free "Boot Camp in the Park" set the Guinness World Record for the "Largest Outdoor Circuit Training".   The message is that anyone, regardless of age or fitness level, can make the commitment to increasing their physical activity!  Most of the participants never thought they could do this until they took the first step--- They showed up!

Join the fun and start your Saturday off with us.
