               2013 FREE Saturday "Boot Camp in the Park" (Begins mid-March 2013)
     
UPDATES
2012 "Boot Camp in the Park" (last session -Saturday, November 24)
This program is coordinated by We Promote Health in partnership with Howard County Recreation and Parks and Get Active Howard County.  Boot Camp in the Park is FREE for every individual that lives, plays or works in Howard County.  More important than setting the Guinness World Record for the Largest Outdoor Circuit Training, is giving every individual an opportunity to participate in on-going weekly physical activity.  Many participants show up every Saturday for the social interaction and support of others.  We Promote Health set out to demonstrate that anyone, at any age and fitness level, can have fun while exercising; that it doesn't have to cost anything to get a good work-out and that a community can come together to provide opportunities such as this to benefit all of it's members.  This program is successful because Howard County has an abundant resource of successful, passionate and caring wellness professionals that are willing to give back.   

A Special Thank You to our Volunteer Head Trainer, Brenda Von Rautenkranz!
We would also like to thank Clara Paris for stepping in to keep us moving throughout the year.

Week 3 (Saturday, April 16, 2011):  
Between 50 and 60 participated this morning.  A little cold and a lot windy but everyone had fun and enjoyed the workout.  Next week is Easter weekend but we will still be out there on Saturday morning!

Week 2 (Saturday, April 9, 2011) Our goal is to reach 100 participants by week 2 or week 3.  Weather depending, we beleive that we will have 100 individuals prticipating Saturday, April 9th.  We ask that you arrive early and register by 7:45am.   All participants must check-in at the registration table.  Trainers will be introduced at 7:50am for the warm-up.  The circle workout will begin promptly at 8:00am.  Please bring a water bottle, a mat and/or a towel with you.  Bring your family and tell your friends, neighbors and office mates to join us! 

 

We have spoken at length with Guinness in London.  They have confirmed that we are on track with the structure of our circle training.  They have also confirmed that they understand and support that our record attempt is not about the intensity of the workout but about the effort by each participant based on their individual ability.  They have also expressed their understanding and agreement that some individuals, when necessary, will be able to take short 1 minute (to 2 min.)breaks during any activity when necessary.  They have also explained that a key distinction between our record attempt for the largest circle training versus a military boot camp style workout, is that we incorporate activities within the workout such as Zumba or Yoga.  With this in mind, we do plan on modifying some of our current stations and adding a 6th station which will be Zumba.

See you Saturday!

Week 1 (Saturday, April 2, 2011:  Over 50 individuals participated under the guidance of 5 professional trainers.  Each trainer supervised the activity at their respective station.  Individuals were divided up into 5 teams and rotated through the 5 stations.  It was announced that we will be attempting a Guinness Book World Record for the largest circle workout.  The date will be set once we reach 100 participants at 10/10 In The Park.  We are confident that, with a base of 100 active participants, we will be able to grow our number to reach the record level.
