    Has Crossfit hit your neighborhood yet? Its a combination of bootcamp with weight training. Just want to know if there are any guys out there who would like to share their routines. Thanks for reading!

    There are lots of crossfit websites out there, and most of them post routines and videos too.

    There's one here in Long Beach, but I heard it's like $100+ a month. Screw that.

    No, I haven't. I've been through real boot camp. So I should be the one teaching this stuff. icon_lol.gif

    But really, you don't need to pay that kinda crazy money. It's just basic calisthenics, plyometrics, and weightlifting. You can even do this in your own garage or at the park with some friends. Just watch the videos to get the proper form and movement. And then follow the routines they post on the website.

    While I agree with you on doing your own training and just following the daily WOD's on the website, it is definitely not the same as training at a Crossfit gym. Watching videos will give you an idea of how your form should be, but it is very easy to do it wrong and seriously hurt yourself. You can do pullups, pushups, box jumps, double unders on your own, but when it comes to gymnastics and weight lifting wod's I would definitely say having a coach helps. It is very easy to lose form once you fatigue and it also helps having someone watch and push your through that last rep.
    At $150 it is not exactly cheap, but it is way cheaper than most gym's charge for personal training.

    Interesting you mentioned that about crossfit. I've been taking bootcamp classes with a friend of mine and he stated on some of the exercises performed are on the dangerous side, e.g. bear complex. Maybe putting the 2 together would actually be better. What ya think?
