Kangoo Boot Camp
Kangoo Boot Camp is a military style, activity based training program. Classes can be held inside or out and can accommodate all fitness levels.
Intervals of running and/or drill style aerobic activity interspersed with conditioning exercises make up the base of this workout. This format improves muscle strength and endurance as it improves cardio-respiratory fitness. It can be a valuable cross training tool that improves fitness level as it reduces the rate of injury and improves exercise adherence by reducing boredom.
Depending on the fitness level, terrain challenges and/or plyometric conditioning activities can be added as an additional challenge. Because this fitness program usually takes place outdoors, environmental changes such as weather and temperature vary with each session. These variations can be used to the advantage of the instructor to add variety to each and every class.
Unlike Kangoo Power and Kangoo Dance, Kangoo Boot Camp does not require the coordination skills for exercise to music and does not need any space at a gym as the classes mainly go outdoors. Shoes are provided for the classes.
Kangoo Dance is a safe, energetic, fun and motivating aerobic program taught to music, for all ages and fitness levels. The program is functional and teaches participants effective jump techniques for enhanced enjoyment while preventing injury due to bio-mechanical stress. It offers more benefits than any other popular group fitness program because Kangoo Jumps rebound shoes act as a shock absorber to reduce impact, when compared with traditional aerobic activities performed in conventional shoes. The rebound shoes generate a trampoline-like feeling of weightlessness that not only increases the Fun-Effect, but more importantly decreases joint stress. Forget other forms of aerobics, with high impact moves that can damage and jar your joints, all in the name of fitness.
