Bootcamp Ideas is the place to come to when your brain feels like fuzz from designing yet another awesome workout for your clients.
You want your workouts to be awesome because you care about your clients having a good time while they exercise. You care about them getting results.
You don’t want to just be another run of the mill personal trainer or bootcamp instructor who runs cookie cutter or unsafe workouts.
Hell to the yes!
My name is Kyle Wood. I feel the same way about those things so I decided to create this wonderful website to share workouts and ideas with you so that you can be more successful.

Having great workouts and lots of variety was one of the major reasons that clients kept signing up for my bootcamps. And I know that’s true for your bootcamp too.
Spending hours building websites, creating Facebook ads, dropping fliers in letterboxes and running referral programs is a complete waste of time if your actual workouts are no good in the first place.
That’s why I want to bring you guys something new that will give you access to more fresh workout ideas.
By doing this I hope you will be able to:
- spend less time trying to find new workout ideas
- keep your clients engaged so that they want to keep coming back for more sessions
- get your sessions talked about by being interesting and fun instead of cookie-cutter routines
It’s completely free, this is my gift to help you make the group fitness sessions that you want to run.
Just pop your name and email in the form bellow and I’ll send it through.
We respect your privacy and keep it safe and to ourselves. Unsubscribe at anytime.
Thanks so much. Your words are very inspiring. I’m ready and pumped to get my boot campers started! Thanks again.Jenna Primmer
I just wanted to reach out and say a heartfelt thank you for all the wonderful workout ideas, tips and encouragement that you’ve shared over the years since I first discovered Bootcamp Ideas. I’ve been teaching Bootcamp for about 12 years, along with multiple other group ex formats, personal training and nutrition. I have always looked forward to getting your emails no matter what the content.Lori Fadorick
Why I do this and who you are reading this
So you might be wondering, what’s the catch?
No one gives away stuff for free without expecting anything in return. Well I’ve been in your position, furiously planning my workout at 11pm before a 5am wake up call. I’ve felt sucked of good training ideas.
That is why I do this.
There are a lot of trainers out there (thousands that follow this site alone) with even more clients to go around.
We can all save each other a lot of headaches by pooling our resources.
That is why you will see some workouts on this site aren’t mine. They have been shared by trainers just like you.
Trainers who, just like you, just want to create an awesome exercise environment.
We all do. And with tools like the internet and tablets and phones it’s easier than ever to share that information with each other.
If some of what I’ve just said is making you nod your head, then welcome aboard!
You have found a group of trainers who would rather help each other then steal each other’s clients. I hope you find it easy to feel a part of what’s happening here.

Who Am I?
My name is Kyle Wood.
From 2010 to 2014 I ran a bootcamp in Melbourne, Australia.
Actually 2 bootcamps. My first bootcamp was a complete failure but a great learning experience.
My second bootcamp went much better. Starting with just 3 one hour sessions per week I grew it to 10 45 minute sessions per week. Class sizes ranges from 5 per session to 25 per session depending on the time of day. All in all I saw 80 clients per week.
After hanging up my full-time trainer hat in 2014, I moved to full-time coaching and educating other trainers through my then side-project, Bootcamp Ideas.
Since then I’ve launched several books, a membership site for bootcamp workout ideas and a course that helps you connect with your clients. All with the goal of making fitness a more welcoming, enjoyable experience for you.
Happier clients = more success.
I really get a kick out of helping people and with you being a trainer, I bet we have that in common. So let’s team up to help more people!
I currently live on Phillip Island with my wife, daughter and 2 cats.
“I just wanted to say I really enjoy getting your emails with different workout ideas every week … Keep them coming!!” – Liz Emes
The idea for this site came about when I was hunting around on the net for some new workout ideas.
I decided to create this site when trying to find some ideas and workouts myself and discovered that most of the bootcamp sites out there are complete rubbish.
My background is not military or terribly athletic. I don’t believe in a drill sergeant mentality with my clients. Instead I believe in gently pushing clients out of their comfort zone towards the next level. I’ve found positive reinforcement and being a good listener two key aspects of training clients this way.
I hope this site saves time with planning and gives you more time to focus on helping your clients get healthier. I also hope that we can build a community of trainers on this site that can help each other in both group fitness training and business.
Kyle Wood created Bootcamp Ideas in 2010 when he was hunting around on the internet for workout ideas. He ran a successful bootcamp in Victoria, Australia and spends his spare time managing this site, adventuring (or lazying) with his wife and find new ways to make bootcamps even better.
