While I have for a long time loved the simplicity of Bootcamp Ideas with it’s white background, minimalist feel and typical blog layout I have also been itching to update it.
Blogs are a fantastic way to create a website that is full of new and interesting articles (and in this case, workouts). The problem is that old articles from a few months or years back get lost in the depths of the the internetz.
I wanted to redesign the website to make this information way more accessible.
Take the tour
If you want to get the low down on all the cool new features, watch the video below as I walk you through the website.
Here are a few new things to check out:
At the top of the page you will notice a brand new logo. You may have already seen it as I’ve been sneaking it in to book covers and emails here and there.
The new logo brings a more professional image to the website I hope. It’s my business to help you.
Popular Posts Page
These are the articles that get the most visits and also people spend the most time on (reading them I assume). There must be something good in them, so check them out.
Share a Workout
Please share your workout still, but also head to this page to check out the 47 other workouts that people have submitted in the past. This is a small goldmine of ideas!
To celebrate I have added a new treat to the Bootcamp Trainers Toolkit:
‘The Avengers Workout Series’
It contains four new workouts showing you how you can use themes to add fun and engagement to your workouts.
How many other bootcamps run an Incredible Hulk workout?
I’ll be back with you later in the week to explain some of the business reasons I redesigned the website. Hopefully you can use some of that insight in managing your own website.
In the mean time I would love your feedback! What do you think of the new look? Is it confusing? Nice?
Tell me in the comments below.
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.
