Welcome back to the 6th Annual Bootcamp Ideas Workout Competition.
The results are in! I’ve picked the Grand Pize and Runners Up and run the random picker to draw the giveaways.
I’ll write it again later, but thank you so much to those that entered and everyone who took the time to try the drills and then vote. Everyone getting involved is really what makes running this competition fun.
We had a huge variety of drills entered this year. We had virtual drills, board game adaptations, warm ups, finishers, interval sessions, KISS drills and more complicated workouts. It was really challenging to pick a winner with such variety.
As I said, the winners have been picked, but before I share them, here’s a quick reminder of what prizes were up for grabs:

This year’s winner is…
by Ng Kai Zheng of FuelFit
Given the global pandemic and the fact most group fitness sessions have had to move online, I really admired Kai’s approach to creating a workout that still gave people a sense that they were exercising with someone else. Congratulations!
The 2 Runners Up game were crowd favourites and strong contenders for the Grand Prize. Here they are:
by Hayley Warner of Believe In Health And Fitness
Boxing workouts have been sorely missed with social distancing in effect. Hayley’s workout makes for a great boxing session either online or face to face with social distancing.
by Elka Hanglin
This drill was most voted by you! It uses a combo of strength and high intensity movements to give campers a well rounded workout. Simple, yet effective.
Elka and Hayley have each won 6 months of BootCraft to help them continue to create awesome sessions.
